Scam call Robo call from fake Discover Bank calling about Visa to lower your APR I hung up as soon as I realized this is a Scam spoofed number
Received call from this number today. Immediately contacted Discover because I do have an account. The call was to advise me that my payment was 1 day earlier than the close of my cycle and therefore, I am now late for my payment. All of which would have been accurate. (Note...pay on the due date or close to that date. Too far in advance can backfire.) Not sure if they were scamming others, but Discover (or at least the rep with which I spoke) confirmed the number.
The person that left the following message about phone number (800) 347-2683 is part of the SCAM. "Call was from Discover. They offered a new card to replace my current one with a $500 credit on it to spend however I like for being such a solid customer. Who wouldn't like that! Said new card would arrive in three days. Can't wait! Arkansas"
This number (800-347-2683) is NOT Discover Card. It is a SCAM to get personal information.
Just had a call from this number. SPAM!
Did not answer, they left no msg. Came up as discover, do not have an account with them
I have been getting calls from this # several times a day. I finally answered, listened to the recorded message about lowering my interest rates (I have no CC but wanted to let them know to stop calling me) and I end up getting a very vulgar, rude and inappropriate male on the line telling me to F*** off, and to do other inappropriate things to him. I told him I was reporting this # to the authorities and I was told to F***THE AUTHORITIES and just as I was getting my voice recorded connected, he said F*** YOU and hung up
responded with text that i could not answer and got a text back: "thank you for contacting discover card. at this tiem we are not able to service your account through sms. you can message us at ..."
I answer these calls and give them the feedback loop with two phones. Screeches real loud in their headset. It reduces the calls for a while until the list of numbers goes to another scumbag. I hope they all have headaches and a ringing in their ears...Lol
The phone number is registered to DISCOVER. Obviously this is an ongoing problem that DISCOVER needs to address. I've never had an account with them ever! (Please contact Customer Service at 1-800-347-4996
for additional information about this message. ... 1-800-DISCOVER (1-800-347-2683).
Called me and as soon as I didn't answer the first time. I saw the number end and within two seconds they dialed me again. Did not leave a message.
Received a call. I did not pick up. They left no message.
No response from the line, constant disturbance. Block them for your safety.
I have gotten tired of unsolicited phone calls so have started answering unknown calling numbers with “sheriffs office fraud division. how may I direct your call?” They all hang up immediately. It may not stop scammers from calling me but I feel I am getting back at them.
Call was from Discover. They offered a new card to replace my current one with a $500 credit on it to spend however I like for being such a solid customer. Who wouldn't like that! Said new card would arrive in three days. Can't wait!
Received a call from 800.347.2683...of course I did not answer. Either hung up or left no message. Now I'll block THIS number.

Said they were T-Mobile and wanted payment and that my service has been suspended.
if it calls again i'll pick up to see, but after reading the comments...i've gotten calls similar to this .. i don't use a credit card, so when i get a call about reducing my rates ..or the ones about free trips or renewing my car insurance... i haven't had a car in over a year, maybe 2..when i did i know which company i used for it... and unless its' them i wont do anything but hang up after a recording
*** LEGITIMATE CREDIT AGENCIES WILL NEVER COLD CALL YOU AND ASK YOU FOR YOUR PERSONAL/FINANCIAL INFORMATION ***
Cold call scammer claiming that he can lower my interest rates on ALL of my credit cards, no matter what credit agency they are through. I played along, just out of curiosity as to what his scam is. When I asked him for a website for his company so that I can verify the legitimacy of his claim before I tell him my credit card number, he told me that the only way to access the website was through the Better Business Bureau website and that the company name is CSG Solutions. When I told him CSG Solutions was a software company he hung up.
called on 3/25/2019 i did hit 2 because want my name off this list they called my cell # was on hold told them this call was being recorded !! didnt care started yelling cuss words i told them to keep talking proceeded to talk to someone in another launage UGH I AM TIRED OF IT !!!!! WHEN IS SOMETHING GOING TO BE DONE ABOUT IT ???????? They claim to be credit card sevices!! i block them they come up with other ####
Called my cell, but I didn't answer (I don't answer calls from strangers or unknowns).
Judging by the comments here AND other pages, I'm glad I didn't answer!
Scam caller with hi-jacked legit Discover Card number. I read many responses below and it's definitely a scam but if you have time give them a fake credit card number and waste their time as much as possible. Then block their number when they finally hang up. Have fun with it. :-)
He called me and wanted all the information on my Chase credit card to lower my rates. I wasted his time and gave him a bogus number. It was priceless when he relized I knew he was trying to scam me the entire time and got really mad. Can’t wait for the next call.
California Mar 04th, 2019
Received text alert from this number, which is legit for Discover. Can hardly wait for a bogus call from this number. I am retired and need some sick fun in my life. :-)
If you get a call from this number, do not answer. This is an incoming number for Discover; it is not used for outgoing calls.
Just received a call from this number. Did not answer and no VM. Added to Blocked list!
Anyone who spends 7 minutes of their time talking to a robot wasted their own time, not the robot's. Re: Florida poster. Yes, it was a robot who got "furious." Now you (Florida) get a brain.

Scammer. Female computer voice, asked to press 1 to lower my Visa card rates. Got a male with what seemed like an Indian accent. I spoke to him like a robot, wasting nearly 7 minutes of his time and had him in a fit of rage swearing at me by the end. I recorded it and told him he'd be famous on YouTube... So much fun!!!
SCAMMER wasted their time.

I just received a call that said it was Visa services about "your card" and available lower interest rate. The robo call said that if I did not hit "1" and speak with a live representative my card would be cancelled.

Do not answer - spoofed number. Block number on your cell!
Hello I have a lot of new customers for you. can i contact by phone?
This phone number actually belongs to Discover Card. I spoke to a representative. Their number is being spoofed. He advised me Discover does not do outbound calling and I should not give out any information to anyone claiming to be Discover unless I have called them.
Pennsylvania Oct 12th, 2017
Called my private cell. I don't have a Discover card so figured it's a scam.
Called my cell phone today. I answered and it was a recording advising that they had been trying to reach me and it was my last chance to get my interest rate lowered. It was definitely not Discover Card. Some scammers are spoofing the number.
Received a call with a STERN message stating that it is URGENT I contact them regarding my credit card and that they have tried a number of times to reach me. The 800 347 2683 belongs with Discover Card so these idiots are using filter #'s to scam people. I dont answer unknown calls with no names.
MAKE SURE YOU ALSO REGISTER WITH DONOTCALL.GOV and REPORT EVERY CALL YOU RECEIVE ON THE SAME SITE.......
Called my private cell; all numbers I don't recognize go to vm. Nine second on vm, no message.
They just called im a T-Mobile customer. I asked him what card calling from and he couldn't tell me only that he can see my accounts and I have balances over $3,000 correct? The voicemail said if I call back I can lower my rate for both Visa and MasterCard. I'm in Hawaii bullcrap I hung up
Identity thieves snagged this number to show up on caller ID. If you call back, it sounds like a legit Discover card call center. Look out!
He just called and asked me to suck his dick after I asked to be removed from the call list.
I have been receiving a call from this number and just hanging up. Finally I pushed 1 for member service to be asked to be taken off the call list. When I told the person(who obviously was not from this country) that i didnt not have a credit card he then asked "will you suck my c@#$" in disbelief I said "excuse me?" he repeated it twice!! I have young kids what if they answered this call!!! I wish I new how to report this person!!

As others have stated, the number shown is the actual Discover card phone number, but the call is not from them. Scammers have spoofed(faked) the caller id info to make you think it is Discover. If they start off with lying/hiding their number, just think what the rest of deling with them would be. I hope they are caught and given a public hanging, just think how much these fake calls would drop if that happened!

The reply: Thank you for contacting Discover Card. At the time we are no able to service your account through texting. Please call 800-347-2683.
I don't have a discover account. Go figure.

Why do they keep calling???
Numerous calls daily from this number. The law against these calls is useless. Make a complaint and your told there is nothing that can be done about it. Maybe if your congress representative's number was on the calling list something could be done then.
This number maybe spoofed but it is same as follows
Same scam just different approach, have received obscene calls from each, only 16 billion in consumer fraud last year not a real problem yet I guess

I asked to be taken off their list, he asked if he could as a simple question, so he asked how old I was and then asked when I lost my virginity!!

I just talked to a representative from Discover. This IS their phone number for customer service, but it has been scammed. The call FROM this number to you are NOT from Discover. Discover is aware and trying to catch the scammers. Don't talk to anyone who calls you. If you are worried about your account, call the number back or email Discover to be sure you are really giving your information to Discover!!
I posted on here that I received an email asking me to verify purchases. The email had this number on it. Discover asked me to forward the email to Fraud Department and today I received this: Thank you for your message about the email you received with the subject line "Important: Please verify your account activity."
The email you received is not a valid communication from Discover.
If you responded to the suspicious email with any personal information, or attempted to access your account using the links provided, please call 1-800-DISCOVER (1-800-347-2683
) as soon as possible to complete a lost/stolen report with one of our Customer Service Representatives.
I said hello and the voice on the other end was a man who said "Don't sucking the penis." I said what and he said, "don't sucking the penis, baby. Now give me your credit card info." I thought it'd be fun to play with him, so I took out my card and read the first six numbers, then made up the next ten. He told me I was deliberately wasting his time and hung up.
THESE DOGS CALL MORNING NOON AND NIGHT NOT TALKING.
THESE ANIMALS CALL EVERY DAY NOT TALKING.
Caller ID Toll Free Call, no message. Other sites say it's a credit card scam.

Scammer using spoofed Discover 800#. They are phishing for personal identity information, name, address, card number etc. If you do not have any account with Discover, BLOCK THEM like I did. No more fake Discover calls for me.

Alice Ward Aug 19th, 2010
They have called 2 times a day for the past several days. Since we don't have a Discover Card this would be a telemarketing call. Not like we expect our Government to do anything for us.
Anon Y Mous Aug 18th, 2010
I don't have caller ID but star 69 when I get a hang-up call like this one. This number calls frequently and each time, after I say hello, they hang up. My number is already on the Do Not Call list. We do have a Discover card and it is in good standing.
After just receiving my 9th call of the day I decided to call a number that was mentioned on this page - 1-800-347-2683
. I talked to a gentleman who works for DISCOVER in Utah. He said he would put my name on their list of do not call and apologized. Time will tell.
DISCOVER CARD IS CHARGING MY HUSBAND PAYMENT PROTECTION EVERY MONTH.(25,63)
MY HUSBAND IS PAYING A PROTECTION AND HE DIDNT USE DISCOVER CARD ANYMORE.THIS MONTH DISCOVER CHARGED 2 TIMES PPP.I THINK IS STEALING MONEY(FRAUD)FROM HIM AND OTHERS CONSUMERS WITH A DISCOVER CARD.PLEASE GIVE YOUR COMPLAINT HERE EITHER IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH PAYMENT PROTECTION PLAN FRAUDFROM DISCOVER CARD.
Discover called soliciting my usage of their card. I told them to send me the information and I would review it and call them with my decision. They took it upon themselves to go ahead and request a copy of my credit score even though I had not applied for their card. Doing this dropps your credit score because it's listed as a "hard inquiry"- like your looking to borrow money. I am having to dispute this to have it removed and WILL NOT be applying for their card.

THANKS WHO CALLED US.
We have started receiving multiple phone calls a day from this number over the past few days. They have never left a message. The caller ID says "Discover Financial", but no one in this household has ever had a Discover Card, nor has anyone in this household ever had an account bought by Discover. The only family member that we know of that ever had a Discover card - no one in this household has even seen or talked to in over 2 years and that person has never lived at this address or had thsi phone number - they don't even live in the same city. Since they're not leaving a message and haven't sent anything, I have no idea who they're looking for or what they're calling about. Since they are calling my house, unless they decide to leave a message or send something in writing, I refuse to accept any contact with them until they can tell us who or what they're looking for.
As an update to my post above (made on another website on 10/19/09) - we are still getting calls relentlessly with no messages ever being left. As I have fraud alerts on both my husband's and my credit reports due to identity theft in the past, I was starting to get nervous that someone may have tried to fraudulently open a Discover account under one of our names so I called Discover directly at 800-347-2683
which is the number for customer service on their website. I spoke to Aiesha in their Ohio office and she checked my SS# and verified that no application has been made using my social and I asked her to check the (623) 643-2415 number to see if it might be another department and she stated that according to her records, the company does not have ANY numbers in the 623 area code and that it is certainly not them calling. She suggested that I may want to get a credit monitoring service to further protect against identity theft and that it appears as though whoever is calling from that 623 number is using Caller ID spoofing. While Caller ID spoofing is still legal, it is not legal for a company or individual to pretend to be another company or individual.
Bottom line - DO NOT GIVE THESE GUYS ANY INFORMATION IF YOU GET THEM ON THE PHONE WHEN THEY CALL!!!
According to another forum, I found a listing of different numbers that a collection agency called "Van Ru" uses and according to that person, many of the calls come from a 623 area code and many state "Discover Financial" on the caller ID.
Please be careful as there are far too many scams out there
For the past 2 weeks calls from this number 866-290-3289 start from 8:30am-10:30pm. When I answer the phone, no one says anything at first; but by the second time I say a greeting, someone will say that they are calling from Discover Card and they would like to speak to (they ask by name). I immediately hang up because I feel like this is a scam.
Well, now the calls are coming to my cell phone. I returned a call and someone by the name of "Ford" answered stating that I had reached Discover Card. So, I asked him where he was located and he said the Philippines. I told him that I was just returning the call because someone keeps calling me from the # 866-290-3289 and he again stated that was Discover Card where he is located. He told me that he would no longer be able to talk to me without me giving him my phone number, account number, pin number and social security number. So, out of curiosity, I asked to speak to a manager or his supervisor, he stated that I would have to hang up and call that number back in order to speak to a supervisor. However, when I told him that I was contacting the FBI/SECRET SERVICE/HOMELAND SECURITY, etc., he quickly asked me to hold on for a supervisor. Unfortunately, the person, Robert Jones, who stated that he was a supervisor was no better off. He too stated that he was with Discover Card in the Philippines and that in order to assist me, he would need the phone # from which I was calling, my SSN, account# and pin#; otherwise, without that information, he could no longer stay on the phone. And he hung up.
I contacted Discover Card at 1-800-347-2683
and spoke to Vicky in Security. I explained to her about the calls and I gave her the number. She told me that Discover Card does not have any offices overseas or anywhere outside of the US. In addition, she filed a complaint to have that number checked out via Discover to find out where those calls are coming from . PLEASE DO NOT OFFER YOUR NAME OR ANY INFORMATION TO THESE CALLERS.
Here I am again. I think this IS legitimate after all. But the lady who called gave my wife the whole account number which is against protocol. We didn't get the cards in the mail for this new account, so I was confused. But I do recommend that you don't give bank information over the phone if they call you. Instead, tell them you will call them back. Then call the number for Discover card 1-800-347-2683
and see if it is legitimate.
This IS Discover Card - Marketing Department - They are pitching their card/credit protection program.
They also don't seem to know what 'not interested' means.
customer service 800-347-2683
) can confirm that this is one of their numbers and try to take you off their marketing list
Is there anyway to prevent them from calling?
TiredofCalls Feb 27th, 2009
It is Discover Card and you need to call them directly at 1-800-347-2683
and tell them to remove your phone # from their Robo lists and then I would suggest to contact the Federal and State Attorney General, the President and then your Sen. and Congress to let them know that they need to have these Companies stop these practices of harassing robo calls.
Don't call 1 866 290 4961 number that has been calling you, because they can't do a thing.
awesomedogtoys Jan 30th, 2009
They have been calling least 4 times a day. I called the number back and get a message about a special Discover card offer. I wait to speak to a rep and explain that I want them to stop calling me. She says that she can put me on the do not call list but she needs my account number. I tell her I am not going to give my account number out when I have no clue who she is. Her answer "well you called me asking for help and now you don't want to give me what I need to help you" I told her there was no way for me to verify that she was really with Discover. I said anyone could set up a phone number and have a recording saying they are with a certain company. She actually huffed in the phone when I said that, like I was being an idiot for being so protective of my credit card. I called the number on the back of my card (1-800-347-2683
) and spoke to someone at Discover. She said that it could have been someone with the marketing department and she would make sure that my number was taken off any and all lists they have. I told her if it was someone affiliated with Discover called 5 times or more per day was a bit much and a bad way to do business. She said that if the calls continued after a few weeks then it was not Discover and someone trying to get my credit card info. I plan on writing a letter to the higher ups at Discover to let them know what's going on and I will include a list of incoming calls to my cell so they can see just how often they are calling. I would advise everyone else to do the same.
Kristoffer Oct 24th, 2008
I received a call from these guys in the middle of my workday. I tried several times to tell him that I wasn't interested. But, he kept interrupting and I simply hung-up on him. I called Discover Card (1-800-347-2683
) and told them that I am on the Do Not Call list and have been on it longer than 31 days, so their database should have been updated by now. I told the very kind operator what happened and that I never want to hear from them again. She added my number to their list and apologized.
If you call the 800 number I gave and you don't have a Discover account, in order to reach an operator, you'll need to press 0000 when they ask for the last four digits of your account number and of your SSN. I did it three times and reached an operator.
