Just received a call from this number. A fellow with to my (US Midwestern college town ears) seemed to have an Indian accent.
He wanted my credit card information. I asked him repeatedly what company he was working for. He listed a few credit card companies. When pressed, he said Chase.
He claimed that they had my credit report and that I was in good standing, etc. and was calling to reduce my credit card bills.
I told him that I did not have any business relationship with his company and that this call was a violation of the Federal Do Not Call law. He hung up immediately.
Sadly, I didn't extract more information from him.
Also sadly, I didn't work to destroy his morale or self-esteem by sympathizing with him for working for a fraudulent company. (I just don't have that patter ready to call on immediately.)
Maybe US Bank and Chase together will be pissed off enough about being misrepresented that they'll go after this scam.

Waste their time and they will tell you to suck a dick. Fake scam.
Received a call from 800 285-8585, asking me if I wanted to lower my credit card rate. I'm pretty tired of these scam calls, so I waited for a "representative", told them the call was being recorded (love that Texas law) and they were to immediately remove my number, or would hear from my legal team.
Guy told me to "f*** off", so they're definitely not who they say they are :) beware.
I missed the call and when call back answering machine was asking for credit card, but it did not say which bank, upon not providing the card number it forwarded to queue for customer service, I disconnected.
Thanks to these reports, I knew to immediately stop the incoming call from this number. No message left. Blocked.
Have received several calls from so-called "banks" (per reports) this week.

Still a scam. It was a recording saying this is an important message regarding your credit card. I hung up.

Total scam and using several different (800) numbers that are legitimately a bank. Don't call them back, don't select any options and don't bother waiting to talk to a live person "to get off their list."

Robocall to my cell listed as "United States" from 800 number not in my list. Left no msg on voicemail. Have blocked them due to their history. Thanks to all who bother to report this!
Received a call from this number. They couldn't tell me about who my current bank is, but wanted to reduce my rate. When I request they not call me again, I was told to "F*CK OFF" and they disconnected the call.

Just called again. Caller ID actually said CARDMEMBERSVC and this 800 number but it was still the bottom feeder call center in Pakistan. I told the moron to stop calling me and showing me how stupid he is and call someone who cares. He thought it was funny that he is wasting company time, money, and resources to keep calling someone they already know they will never get anything from.
When I call back 800-285-8585 it was the bank and he said someone is using their number and I waited for the survey at the end and it asked me questions about how the service was I think that was really the bank they didn't ask me for no social security number or account number I asked him to take me off the list he said what list I said maybe I suscribed and didn't remember
They are still in action, calling from other phone numbers. I picked up and pressed 1 to see what I could get out of them. Said they were visa card services representing the credit bureau of Experian. I asked for their corporate phone number and they gave me 800-285-8585. When I ask how to get off of their call list they said to call one 800-yo-mama. Gonna call Experian and see if they’ll look into it. I don’t quite understand how this could go on for so long in this day and age.

I added fraud alert to my credit report and message to contact me to confirm new credit line request. After I applied for a credit card, they call ( US bank) two days later to confirm that it was me who was asking for a new credit card . Good service. I appreciate them checking.
Seems to be a scam to get you to give up your personal info and CC number. Be weary!

I received a $0 balance "invoice" in the mail from US bank with a credit card number I didn't recognize. When I called, the prompt was to enter the credit card number, which I did. Then I was told wait time were longer than usual & try again later. I went through the same thing 2 days later. I will go to my branch to find out the real story.
This number called me a day after I activated my new credit card. I ignored it the first week, & I even called the # back & got "You've reached card Member services please enter in your card #" but it didn't tell me who the call was from it just asked for my card #. The next week I still kept getting the call so I finally picked it up. That's when the automated voice said "This is Julie from US bank trying to active your card, please put in your card #" I did not thinking & then was sent to a representive named Christina, who "couldn't find" my acct so she asked for my name (and this is when I started getting reluctant). I gave her my name but she "still couldn't find" me, so she asked for my social & not the last 4 of my social, the whole thing. Of course I didn't give it to her. I told her I would just contact my bank. She didn't seem upset about that, she just said "oh yes of course" and that was it.
Left message on Voice Mail, saying they could lower my Credit Card rates. I have no Credit Cards. After doing some Google searches, I discovered the U.S. Bank is offering the VISA Chase Credit Card, which is why the Caller ID # 800-285-8585 keeps coming up as
Received call from Card Holders Services. I'm on the Do Not Call list and apparently this is another company that does not subscribe to it. What good is the DNC if it doesn't establish 'REAL' laws for these scammers.
Left voice mail, said they would lower my interest rates and to act soon because my "eligibility expires soon". I'm sure this is the first time they called because I would have blocked them if they called before.
left message on my machine saying "important information about my crad card, no problems just a chance to lower my rate ha ha ha! If this is a legitimate call perhaps the name of the company would have been left.
Caller ID said "UNAVAILABLE". This is a scammer trying to get credit card numbers. A message was left on my answering machine. A female voice says "There are no problems with your account.... Press 1 to speak to a representative to lower your interest rate to 6.9%...." They never give the name of any credit card or bank, obviously they are expecting you to supply that, along with your credit card numbers. This is obviously a scam. The phone number is a real phone number for U.S. Bankcorp's lost and stolen card department. They are obviously faking the caller ID information and don't expect you to call them back.

I called the number back and got a representative from US Bank. She said that this is definitely a scam. They are using the US bank number and trying to get credit card/social security info. Be careful!
The "U.S. Bank" called and left a voice-mail. Said that it was my 'last notice' to lower my credit card / loan rate...... to press 1 or to press 3 to stop further calls. This is the latest of a multitude of 'last notice' calls in the past 6 months. It's getting old and boring. My advice to anyone receiving similar calls is to just hang up and then attempt to block the number by whatever means. I use silent ring on my phone and then just clear these stupid messages out at my leisure sometime later in the day. The do not call idea has failed miserably.
No business with them either. I am in Canada.
and use vancity.
Left a message on the answering machine. Did not say who was calling but said it was about my credit card.
Said that there was no problem with it but wanted to talk about it. Sounds like a credit card scam.
This is a number given by US Bank for toll free calls. This number was given after receiving a call from 877-838-4347
. The last number is also US Bank.
