I just called this number back and they asked for my name. I told them and he misunderstood and called me by a different name when I asked him who the phone number is associated with. So I told him nobody by that name was at this number and was he sure he had the name right. He said yes it is your name. I said that is not my name and somebody gave him the wrong information. He wanted my name again....hung up...lol!
Chase refuses to give you overdraft protection, then lets things overdraft anyway, causing fees and penalties.
Why don't they just refuse charges for which there is no fundage? I'd rather pay a 20 dollar NSF from a business rather than Chases insane fees and penalties, which are way more than that.
Such a racket!
I have been getting calls from this number every day at least 3 times a day for a week. I do not have an account or anything to do with Chase bank, so I don't believe it would be them. They never leave a message. It's so annoying!!
Hmm, try managing one of their credit cards sometime, or better yet, don't go near one. A few years back when I'd had enough of their punishing APR and fat annual fees, I transferred the whole mess to another lender. For various reasons the process of finding a better deal and making arrangements put me past the Chase billing due date. I admit to ignoring this, only because Chase was totally obstinate about my efforts to reprice my account.
The Chase autodialer felt no shame in jangling my phone from nine to twelve times daily, from an ''unknown'' number, right until the moment the balance transfer was completed. This kind of abuse is why more states need a mini-FDCPA to direct at original creditors, like California and Texas thoughtfully provide their residents.

They call me about 2 or 3 times a day..I am overdrawn only because of there penalties and fees..I emailed them and told them to close the acct. I went from free checking to all charges checking..I do have to say they are not a good bank to deal with..they used to be, dont know what happenned to them. And another thing, they did give me an overdraft charge...I did put money in acct so a check wouldnt bounce. Then they gave me and overdraft fee on overdraft, that one really thru me..lol. But I have a new bank now...
They called 7 times yesterday, 5 times today. I received text messages telling me to call a few weeks ago because my account is overdrawn. I was not then and am not now overdrawn. I did call the number back and spoke with someone who would not tell me her supervisors name or number, what department she worked in or what she does all day generally...only that this was Chase Bank corporate in Ohio. I refused to give my phone number, SS# or account information, so she said she could not tell me anything..lol! Next time, I will answer and see if the experience is any different. Then I will send it directly to voice mail after that until it ceases.
Called Chase CServ directly and they said it was a valid Chase corporate Ohio number. So, verified again my account was in good standing and asked to put on the no call list. What else can you do but send it directly to voice mail. If it is phishing, I hope they don't get the balls to use the regular customer service number, then you'll have to go the branch to get answers without compromising your account security. Chase needs to get on top of this or I am checking out altogether.
Yes, this is definitely Chase bank's collections dept. They call four or five times a day. I took care of my overdraft issue promptly and all is fine, but they do call quite often and make pests out of themselves.
I called chase and they said this is NOT one of their phone numbers. The fact that they were calling my son's cell number asking for me was the first suspicious thing, then when I called them back, the first thing they asked was my SS#. As if! I reported them to the REAL Chase fraud department.
never leaves a message. Calls every hour. Caller ID shows number and unknown name. What is it with these cowards anymore that they can't even leave a message; or is it because as long as no contact is made, the dialer can call unlimited times a day and they can avoid harassment charges?
It's a real Chase number. I'm overdrawn, and they're calling me.
I get these calls occasionally because someone who had my cell number must have had an account with Chase and they never changed their number with them. I asked them to stop calling. We'll see what happens.
This is a completely legit number for chase deposit account collections, my roommate and I both bank with chase and at various times have been overdrawn and received calls from this number.
This number calls multiple times a day, and never leaves a message. Typically calls every day at 5 PM, twice in a row and never has left a message, ever. I don't have a Chase account, if that is really who it is that is calling. Just shows up on caller ID as not provided.
Not a real number. A real collector will NOT call 6 times in 10 minutes they will call once or twice a day. Not real
On a Sunday night 3xs in a row. I am overdrawn and it's their own fault, authorized over $1,000 of ACH via computer. Still fighting with customer claims, not giving them another dime.
I receive at least 5 calls a day saying "this is a very important message from chase- please call an 800 number and press option 1. While I do have several accounts with chase including my home mortgage, I have NEVER been overdrawn or late so there should no reason for them
to contact me. Besides, they send me emails that say "open a new browser page and go to chase.com and when you log in go to your messages". They NEVER include a link. I don't think these calls are legit so please be careful!!! By the way, I never have any messages in my chase home page and the bank president calls me directly....helps to know who works at your local branch!!
I just called them back and they asked for phone number which I gave them and then my name which I wouldn't give them. I asked who they were looking for and the lady gave me the first name of the the person who used to have my phone number. I knew this because I used to get calls for them all the time. But like most other people I recieved multiple phone calls and no message. I know that with my other banks if you end up on a call list it is an automated system and they can't do anything about it unless you tell them that they have the wrong number, and they can remove you. This seemed real to me, but if your not sure call a chase number that your confident in and find out why they are trying to contact you.

This is not a scam, I received a call stating that my account was overdrawn and I didn't beleive it until I logged into my account and learned that I had an unathorized charge that caused me to go overdrawn. Had I not received I was able to get the issue resolved and avoided having checks I had written hit my account causing overdraft fees.
Got a call from 800-555-0433 @ 9:34 a.m. EDT today (4/23/2010) on my cell phone --
the usual -- no message left. Knew as recently as yesterday that my checking was
overdrawn, and from my online access account info, garnered that this was the case
for about a week. Read a lot of posts on line here after Googling this number.
After reading many of the posts here, determined that Chase may use a third party
to contact me. Wachovia/Wells Fargo at least drops a courtesy post card in the
mail if I overdraft. I do plan to use the new ATM that accepts checks and cash to
deposit funds into my account so to offset the negative balance. After seeing what
people post here, I will never call that 800-555-0433 and give them ANY info,
especially the SS#. I will only deal with my local branch (former WAMU) and not
give any collections agency a percentage for arranging payments with me.
I started receiving calls from this number about ten times a day a few days ago. The caller would hang up and call right back, making it impossible for me to use my phone because they were constantly calling in! Finally, I called the number back - I got the SAME automated system that you get when you call the main "Chase" line - a woman's voice "Thank you for calling Chase" etc. When the rep came on the phone, she was a very pleasant lady with an american accent, who apologized profusely for the frequent calls. She says they use an auto-dialer programmed to just keep calling over and over until it reaches a person. This isn't exactly ethical, but I've worked for many large companies with auto-dialers like this before, so I believe it. It's a tactic to get you to pick up the phone, but it's against FTC regulations for them to call so much, so is potentially grounds for a fine if you record and report the frequency of the calls to the FTC.
Secondly, the rep did NOT ask for my personal info! She knew who I was by my phone #, and told me I'd been overdrawn for 8 days (exactly true). She then asked when I'd be making a deposit; I told her in several days, she made a note in my file, and the calls stopped.
I then called Chase customer service 800 number, as well as the fraud line, just to make sure, and they were able to access the note on my account that was made by the rep I'd just spoken with at the 555 number; they also told me that this was a legit 3rd party "Chase Collections" company located in Ohio. They said this bad "auto dialer" system and the fact that the Chase Collections was actually a 3rd party collections agent has gotten them a bad rap for being a phishing scam. In fact, the Chase company itself had no way of knowing how the 3rd party collections co. was appearing on people's caller IDs, so they had to investigate it as fraud or as a "phishing" scam until they were able to figure out that the collections agency was re-routing their "Chase" number through a "spoofed" or fake caller ID number (as do many other collections agencies) so that people won't keep avoiding the calls - they figure if you know you owe chase money, and see "Chase bank" come up on the caller ID, you'll be less inclined to answer.
HOWEVER: Because Chase Collections is re-routing their number through this "555" number, other companies are doing this too! It's entirely possible to get a call on this same number from a completely different company, including one claiming to be Chase, since they know Chase uses this number... if it's legit, the most the Chase rep will ask for would be the mailing address (not the whole thing, just the number & street) as well as phone #. If you want details of account activity, they'll need the last 4 of your social, but otherwise they can tell you what you need to know without that. If someone calls thru this # claiming to be Chase, asking for your full SSN, date of birth, etc. it's definitely not chase... but Chase DOES use this number.
My recommendation? If you're getting these calls, just to be safe, call the Chase main number or go to a local branch and straighten out the overdraft, late payment, OR if you don't have an account, try to find out why your phone number is in their system and have it removed. Very often the person who had your number before you may have had a Chase account, or they may be looking for a friend or family member that does have an account through something called "skip tracing". Once you take care of the problem thru the main system, the calls should stop, as the collections co. will get notified that you took care of it thru a Chase branch.

Says press one to pick up call. did not pick up. scam!
British Columbia Canada Feb 22nd, 2010
Well folks lets think about it.. You are receiving calls from Chase Bank, well why would any company be calling you repeatedly?? Usually it's because you owe them money. So think about it, if you owe Chase money that is why they are calling. If you don't have an account with Chase then they probably have the wrong number. And they don't ask you for your social when you call in, they can pull up why they are calling by just the phone number. So nice try all you conspirators.
They keep calling my daughters phone and asking did I receive a call or a letter. I told them that I don't bank with them. This last time I told them they could talk to my 13 year old daughter if they wanted but I'm not sure how that would help them. They said it would take 24-48 hours to remove her number. Bull Crap. This is so fraudulent it's not even funny.
I talked to a chase banking assistant personally, and this is 100% fraudulent. First off Chase bank will never ask you for your social security number over the phone, second off these people don't even identify themselves. The Chase employee i talked to said even if it was loss prevention, they would identify themselves as such. When these people call you, tell them that what they are doing is a federal felony, and they will spend a long time in prison for identity theft!
THis is not a legitimate CHASE number - Whoever is calling is fraudulent - when you answer the phone there is a recorded announcement asking you to phone another number. When you call that number they ask personal information. The first thing they asked me was my social security number!!!! I hung up immediately. Chase would never ask me for that number because they already have it, so this is a scam operation. They need to be stopped right away.
I have over 20 missed calls from them. They don't leave messages. I called a different number that I got from Chase and they couldn't find me, how can people annoy me so much?
Receive 2 calls in a row every day from Chase...I don't know if it is Chase, or a phone charge scam. The automated message says to call Chase back at this number...not gonna happen. This is a business and it could just be a random call. SO ANNOYING!!!

Do your own Homework. Don't be gullible. People tell you all of the time don't give out your information over the phone! Every interaction with this number didn't make sense. A bank as large as Chase would be more professional than that. They said things like they couldn't find my account (the people from this number). I at first believed them because I had overdrawn my account and the number they said was close. But then things got weird. I ended up looking up online for Chase's customer service numbers and this number was no where to be found. I called the legit customer service number and ended up sorting things out. They, the legit Chase people, said the only time they would call be over fraud concerns. If you had over drafted they would only send you a letter. I even spoke with a a woman (I forget her title) who deals with fraud concerns and they ended up freezing my account and I will now be opening a new one. If it seems weird check it out for yourself using reputable services. It is your money and your life done let some random person on a comment board try to tell you it is true. Figure it out for yourself. And just the fact that if you google this number there are this many weird accounts of people having this number call and it not make sense, that should tip you off that something is not right.
They call me on my cell phone while I'm at work. When I answer and say "Hello" several times, it's a computer generated call. Then shortly they call again and leave a message to "eastern time".
I just paid off a bill through their attorney and they cashed the check. I've read on the web that some people started receiving harrassing phone calls because their bill wasn't paid. Go figure!
These but wholes have been calling for months. They have asked for 6 different people so far. Any requests to cease are ignored. So are threats. However, I have found a new technique which seems to work very well. After using this technique 3 days in a row, they stopped calling. I just scream insults and obscenities at them. Insult them in sexual terms, the worst things you can think of. It helps if you are screaming. It seemed to work pretty well.
Got a call asking to call this number. They asked for my SSN and address. I told them if they called me they should know it. Was told to go to my local CHASE bank. I did. The manager said that CHASE would not ask for personal info if I was overdrawn. They would just charge me and send mail. Nuff said.

1-800-555-0433 calls my cellphone constantly... Finally answered, they wanted to speak to my husband about his chase account (thank God I removed my name from that account with him months ago, he was always overdrawn), anyhow I gave them his cellphone number, and they removed mine...
I recieved several calls from this number with a recording saying call them back. I haven't called back but it just might be Chase because I do have an account with them and I am overdrawn,I also listed my number for the online banking.
Isn't it fraud to misrepresent a bank in order to get your ID info? If we all made some noise to some state Attorney General maybe they can launch a proper investigation. Using your confidential info to wipe out your bank account is the equivalent of bank robbery and should be punishable by 20 years in prison. I can't find any way to block unwanted phone numbers on BlackBerry. Maybe my phone provider can block them. Will ask tomorrow. In any case I will move my Chase accounts to Citibank to be safe. I don't need this kind of bovine scatology.
My wife started receiving calls from 800-555-0433 as soon as she obtained a new cell phone. Most were automated, requesting a call back. Some were humans with accents sounding like East Indians. Said they were with Chase collections.. They were looking for someone named Ana. We told them that we knew no one with that name and she probably previously had the same number. Two months ago we asked them to stop calling this number, and they said they would stop. Despite this, the calls persisted. Twice, I had prolonged discussions with people with foreign accents who also said they would remove our number, to no avail. Last night we got another automated call around 7:30 PM. Today I called back the number, intent on speaking to a person who could help me. After negotiating a menu that asked for my Chase account number (I do not have any Chase accounts) and even my Social Security number (which I refused to give and kept saying "agent please," I finally got a lady named Jane (employee ID D167540) in Chase account services in Columbus, Ohio. She was very helpful to a point-- she looked up the number and found that Chase had reason to call "Ana" at our phone number. She said she would put a note to the file and forward my concerns to Chase management. However, she had no idea as to who might be calling me and said she was not aware of any Chase collection office in India. After more discussion, she referred me to "Telephone Banking," which again offered a labyrinthine menu. I finally got a live person named Vanessa Bustamente (who spoke American English), who was very knowledgeable and ( I hope) helpful. She also said she would refer my complaint to management, and would advise the "department that handles overdraft accounts" to put a block on my number. I told her that this experience reflects poorly upon Chase, and that there should be a more direct way for the company to handle errors such as this. I will advise further only if Vanessa has not been successful.
It appears BOTH claims of authenticity and scams are potentially true. Let me explain:
I closed my Chase Checking/Savings account a month ago. Removed all funds from both accounts when I did, had no more reoccurring payments drawing from the account (had let it set idle for several months to ensure this, as a safeguard), and then had the Chase rep assure me that no other transactions were pending, and that it was now closed. Took my money over to Bank of America, where I bank now.
About a month later -- today -- my wife gets a call from 800-555-0433. A man by the name of "Terry" (sp?) tells her that our Chase account has been overdrawn by $180-something. Odd that (1) he called her, when Chase has had my direct cell number on record for forever now, and (2) it's been a month since we were assured it was closed. Before making another move, we researched the number and found this page, which was very helpful.
So we called Chase, using the number for Chase I already had kept on record. We find out that the claim is half-true -- The checking account was overdrawn $25. What's odd was this was because I had an auto-draft set up to move $25 from Savings to Checking every month. I figured that would die when both accounts were closed, but evidently, somehow not. Once we called Chase, got it sorted out, they admitted it was Chase's fault, and while we have a painful process ahead of us to wrap this up, we at least know what happened.
So, odd...This still doesn't explain why the guy who called us claimed an overdraft of $180+ while the Chase rep stated $25. Kind of a bit of a gap there. So either that was a scam caller who had incredibly coincidental timing, or the guy had the wrong amount for some reason. I'll never know.
So while the call seems legit, someone posted here earlier noting that people can easily spoof phone numbers. Your scammers may be doing just that, while others of you may be receiving legit calls. The only way to verify is to call Chase directly, using the number provided under their website, or visit a local Chase branch.
Nonetheless, I'm done with Chase, and will never recommend them to anyone else.
Massachusetts Sep 17th, 2009
this is a scam.
i do not have an overdrawn account of any kind. i do not have a chase account. i have a wamu account with $1.00 in it. i called back and got a guy with a thick accent who demanded my name (after giving him my ph#.) i asked what the call was regarding and he said "this is chase bank."
i just called the real Chase 800-935-9935
) and asked about it. i told them i have an IL WaMu account and no Chase accounts or cards - they said that IL WaMu accounts haven't even been converted and there was no reason Chase would have called me. she also said that this was a fraudulent call and to ignore it the next time they call.
This is absolutely Chase bank. I owe them $70.00 for taking money out of an ATM, then 2 days later it overdrew. They say I overdrafted the ATM, not possible. I owe them NOTHING and filed a complaint with the Federal Reserve. I'm going to start blowing a whistle in their ears.
I got a call from this number twice and while I was on the phone with them I looked it up and saw it was a phishing scam. Immediately I hung up and told them I would call them back. I called the Chase number on my debit card and they looked up my account and I gave them the phone number. The Customer Rep. asked me to hold, then politely told me that this number is a phishing scam, but my info had not been accessed. I then called back to quiz the good folks claiming to be Chase and the customer service rep. stumbled so badly I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. @ Inside Man- you claim to be inside, but we don't know that. I called a number provided to me by Chase and I was very satisfied, however, I will be going into the branch to check up. For all we know you could be in on the scam. Also, it doesn't matter who you are, identity theft is one of the largest growing crimes and people steal your credit based on what they can get out of it, not the person that you are. It is very likely that they don't even know you, but they know your number and that number will help them access information that will destroy your life.
they say they are Chase, but I was on hold trying to call back and still am for over an hour. I got on my other phone and called a real number for Chase (who is my banker) and they checked my accounts and no problem. They also checked this number and don't find it in their system. This may be a scam
This telephone number is definetely Chase Bank. They are calling me because yes, I am overdrawn. Legit number.
It was from Chase Bank, I had overdrafted my checking account earlier this week. By the time they called I had corrected the problem but their system hadnt updated my account yet.
Got the voice mail from 800-555-0433 about three times this month. It said the same message like this, "Eastern Time Thank You" I knew it was a scam or prank. I am hoping it will be stopped soon!
Everyone who posted here is an idiot same # called me and it was my car payment 15 days late. Chase csr don't know there own numbers. Watever number they give u is a general number that has like 50 lines so wen they call u depending were u r, it will be a number they won't recognize y do u think they leave a message for u to call back a diff number than they called u on duh!!!
here's the thing, i have a pay to play cell only use for my wife my fried and my 1 business associate no one else has or know about it however this number keeps coming and I keep declining good thing as I see here
This is not Chase. I called Chase directly using a valid Chase customer service number and they are aware of the phishing attempt and confirmed that this is definately a scam. Chase does not call deposit customers with overdrawn accounts. They only communicate with customers whos accounts are overdrawn through mail. And Chase never ever asks you to confirm information over the phone like your account number.
I just got a call from this number. I just got this line, so I called them back to tell them to take me off their list and they told me that they couldn't find my number... how annoying
Keeps calling my cell every day several times, leaving no message. If it is Chase, I have no account with them.
FOR ALL OF THOSE BEING HARRASSED BY THIS #, I HAVE SOME PERTINENT INFO. Found out yest this is "Chase Corporate" in OHIO. It has to do with collections. My pers. # had been given out by someone who is a Chase acct holder, as a reference, contact, family member, etc. & had nothing to do with me personally, or whether or not I have a Chase acct. This person is deliquent on their acct., and Chase is calling any and every # they have on file. So if you don't hv. Chase acct. that is prob. why you are being called. Now as for asking for SSN #'s, I was a debt collector & saw a lot of unethical behav, which I wouldn't put past anyone, however, FTR, & according to Chase, that isn't their policy. BTY, I called my local branch a few mos. bk about these calls, & they sd this was not a Chase #, & that they would hv. their "Fraud Dept." investigate. I never heard a thing back and again started getting called. This time, I called Chase's Fraud Line & spoke with Corporate. They looked up my number, and then stated the name of the person who listed my # with them. They kindly removed my info, and I did state that Chase sd it was not their # before, but that rep obviously didn't have a clue. So, bottom line...CALL CHASE CORPORATE @ 1-800-727-7375
, and give them the # that keeps getting called and asked to be removed. FINALLY, FOR ALL OF YOU WHO AREN'T DESERVING A COLLECTIION CALL FOR NOT PAYING YOUR DEBTS, WE CAN GET THIS TO STOP!
This number calls me at least 2 times a day everyday
Instead of ignoring the calls and coming up with a story, answer the phone or call the number back M-f 8am -9pm est.( These are the hours we accept inbound calls)Ask the representative to provide there Standard Id # ( Chase uses this to Identify all their employees) Then take this information to the branch or better yet have the rep xfr you to Chase telephone banking. If you r not willing to do that then u dont have anything to say. I am so sick of people like u thinkin somebody wants your identity;Who are you? Better yet,who do you think you are that someone wants your information. If they are calling then obviously you dont have any money to begin with !!
6 calls already this morning and 5 yesterday!!!
This number has been verified to be a phishing scheme designed to gather information in order to steal identities. For those of you that actually gave a scam artist your information, you would do well to change your bank account information before you find your bank account wiped out. It wouldn't do well to believe everything you hear or read, in other words, don't be so gullible as to accept everyone at thier word and don't give any information out over the phone before verifying who you are talking to.
Hello again...these guys just don't stop! I keep getting calls in cycles from this scamming number. Every couple of months I get bombarded w/ calls at all hours and several times a day. It lasts for a week or two straight, then goes away for a while. There is only a msg lft each time and I never answer. I do have a Chase account, but I am never overdrawn (contrary to what others are posting, I still believe this is a scamming #). In fact, I have already contacted Chase about this # claiming to be from their company, and they transferred me to the fraud division and said "they would check in to it." Of course, that was several months ago, and yet I still keep getting these rotations of calls.
Time to step it up to the next level. I will find where this # originates and get the authorities involved in that process as necessary. Also, I will probably show them postings from this site and others regarding phishing, and contacting those who don't even have Chase accounts. I used to be a debt collector for many years, and IF SOMEONE WANTS THEIR MONEY, they DON'T hang up, call outside of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act hours and days, and certainly don't leave recorded messages over and over again. Dear posters, guard your personal info. THIS IS WAR AND THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE!!
i have worked for Chase Bank before and can tell you that in order to protect the customer's privacy, they will not ask for your acct nbr or SSN on an outbound call. i got this call, checked my acct, and i am golden (as i already knew). chase does still send out the overdraft notices too. and you should have received many of these before they try to call and collect. i'm sure all of the "chase employees" on here and the people claiming this is legit are probably working for the scamming company.
California Aug 26th, 2008
Just received a call from this number, didn't answer it. Came right here to check it. When I saw the "It's Chase bank" the first thing I did was call their customer service number (found on the back of my debit card, I'm a Chase customer), the customer service representative said it *might* be their account alerts hotline (which I question, because that number is 877-226 something and saved into my cell phone).
I was equally scared because my account is overdrawn, and I'm aware of that, but the CSR also told me that my account isn't in any danger of being closed, but :\ I don't know.
OMG!!! Can't leave a message and it's a bank calling to say your overdrawn!!!
this number started calling my cell phone 4 or 5 days ago - I totally ignored the call - never answered - they kept calling - I now just open then close my flip phone-hoping they would just stop calling - no chance! we have never banked w/Chase Bank in any form so I know this has to be a phishing call of some sort - just wish they would stop calling and bothering me - reporting them to my cell phone service - may have to change phone numbers - IDIOTS!
this number just called me twice no message. wtf??
I called the Fraud Prevention Dept at Chase, being that I am a customer, and they have verified that this number DOES NOT belong to them. So if you get a call from this number claiming to be Chase, don't respond and NEVER disclose account or social security information to them or anyone else over the phone if they're the ones contacting you, as banks will never call to for such information. Chase will be fully investigating this incident and they have noted to me that there has been an increase in fraudulent activity and phishing schemes lately from scammers claiming to be Chase Bank. If your number is unlisted or on the Do Not Call list, report these crooks and let the FTC fine them up the wazoo if they catch them.
THIS NUMBER HAS CALLED MY PHONE 3 TO 4 TIMES
A DAY ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT BUT I NEVER ANSWER
THEY DO HOW EVER LEFT A MSG ABOUT A CHASE ACCOUNT
I DO NOT BANK WITH CHASE I WISH THEY WOULD STOP
30 calls in last 3 days! I do not have a Chase account. Called Chase, it is not a number they have in their system. Had Chase add me to their do not call list just in case. ANNOYING, called the number back right after they called 3 times in 5 minutes. Recording said Chase but they were closed. If you're closed stop calling me.
Message that debit cards from Chase were ready - needed to verify my address. I have no Chase accounts.
ATTN EVERYONE! THIS IS A SCAM BY SOMEONE WANTING YOUR INFO. COMPANY CLAIMS TO BE CHASE ON A RECORDED MESSAGE . I NEVER ANSWER AND MOST TIMES THEY NEVER LEAVE A MSG., BUT I GET CALLS OFTEN. HAVE HAD CALLS FROM HOME (PRIVATE #) AND CELL. I HAVE A COMMERCIAL ACCOUNT WITH CHASE AND I'M NEVER OVERDRAWN. AN ACTUAL LEGIT REP FROM CHASE CALLED ME FROM LOCAL BRANCH AND NOTICED MY ACCT BALANCE AND WAS BASICALLY SOLICITING ME TO LOOK AT OPTIONS FOR INVESTMENTS. THIS IS ASIDE FROM THE 800-555 CALLS. SO CHASE DOES CALL TO SOLICIT AT TIMES, BUT I TOLD THE REP ABOUT THE OTHER CALLS AND HE SAID THEY NEVER ASK FOR SSN'S AND THAT WAS NOT THEM CALLING. ALSO, SOME OF YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE CHASE ACCOUNTS, SO THIS IS A SCAM. FYI, I WAS INVOLVED WITH ROYAL HOLIDAY TIME SHARE (BEWARE!!! FRAUD) AND THESE STRANGE CALLS STARTED COMING AFTER THAT TIME. THEY ARE OUT OF MEXICO (SOME OF YOU STATED CALLS W/ FOREIGN ACCENTS) I HAVE A FEELING THEY ARE DOING THIS OR THEY GAVE OUT THE INFO TO OTHER SCAMMERS. THIS IS WHAT I KNOW...GOOD LUCK AND HOPE THIS INFO CAN HELP SOMEONE!
Male called and identified himself as Chase and gave his name, identification number, and where he was located. He did not ask for neither an account number nor any part of my social security number. It is confirmed and a legitimate call. He notified to let me know that my account was overdrawn due to an unauthorized debit showing on my account. I called my personal banker and had it taken care of and contacted the claims department to have the unauthorized transactions to stop.
So.... I just called Chase bank. Gave the rep the number that was calling me and he got them on another phone. The person looked up my cell number, and he had called me because my acct is a bit overdrawn. So relieved! It may seem suspicious, but it really is Chase Collections. For those of you who are getting calls from that number and dont have a Chase acct, maybe your bank is a sister bank to Chase or something
I have gotten a few calls from that number this morning. Once around 830 or so, then a call about 10 minutes ago (1010), then a call to my office phone from the same number, and THEN immediately after, 2 calls in a row back to my cell phone. I never answer calls from numbers I dont know, so I figured I'd wait to listen to the voicemail. They never left one. I do have a Chase account, but if it were really them, dont you think they'd call once and leave a voicemail?
It is legit. It's some type of outsourced collections company that Chase uses. It does not sound like Chase, because IT ISN'T CHASE. It's a third party hired by Chase. Basically, if you overdraw an account and that account doesn't have enough funds to cover the $25 fee, it goes into a negative balance, then they send your information to this collections company.
If you don't have a Chase account, you are recieving the call either because your number used to belong to someone that has an overdrawn Chase account or the collections agent made a faulty skip trace. (e.g. maybe you have the same name as this other person or live in the same house that he used to live in)
If you do not have a Chase account, then call them back and get their mailing address so you can send them a cease and desist order. If you do have a Chase account, then you need to pay your overdraft fee.
This number has come up quite a few times, i checked it online today and it said the number was a scam. I called it with this info in mind (trying to find out what kind of scam it was) and they were able to confirm that it IS NOT A SCAM. They read me my last deposits and transactions. If you get this call, they are just trying to let you know that your Chase back account is/was overdrawn.
P.S. they never asked me for my account information, or to authorize anything.
I was called three times so far today..first time hearing from these people.
I was actually called by Chase two weeks ago (it was a different number and I spoke to a live person) to confirm fraudulent usage of my checking account. Almost my entire account was wiped out by a good for nothing idiot with no time on his or her hands. This parasite used my account to buy calling cards. This is true, I saw the expenses posted to my account and am currently working along with my local branch on getting my money back. Needless to say, I am more leery now than I have ever been about who calls me, who emails me, etc.
When I saw the 800-555 number today I immediately looked it up and that's how I came to this site.
I owe chase about $1,500. that is not that much money...but they won\'t stop calling!!! it got to the point where they would call about 13 times a day! I\'m NOT kidding!!! Whenever i answered, they would hang right up(thinking i would call back) when i finally decided to call back...They asked me for my SS#. FUCK THAT!!! when i actually answered and got a person and they asked if i was home...i yelled at that Indian! i said, \" i owe you guys a small amount of money!!! I get it...i like being paid as much as the next person, but come on, there is people who are tens of thousands of dollars in debt with you people and you are gonna harass me about a mere 1500! what you don\'t understand is I am a part-time waitress making 2.83 an hour with a kid that needs medicine! And you dare have the balls to continue with the calls at all hours of the day. Pardon me, but GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!\"
...they cut back to 7 times a day...now i answer and leave the phone next to my stereo playing Manson!

This is the deal. This is a company that CHASE hires to do their dirty work. Basically these guys are the Bruno Collections Hit Man for the Organized Crime family that is Chase.
When your account is overdrawn or listed that way in the chase system for over 24hrs then this company has the contract to go after you. They are a collections agency but they claim to be from chase because they have a contract. If they get you to pay up, then then they get a precentage of the money.
They are a typical underhanded collections agency that usues a lot of of illegal harassment and scare tactics and to fight them you have the treat them that way.
Chase uses these companies to keep their hands clean. You cannot accuse them of harassment because it isn't them making the calls.
If you got a call from this company then you are better off calling the main Chase number and sorting out how your account or ID got sent to a collections agency.
Hey douche bag employee idiot - you are probably the scammer. I got 6 calls within 1 1/2 hours. I don't answer unknown names, I don't give a shit who they are. If it's a ligit call, use a brain and leave a message. If you can't leave a message, you aren't worth my time. By the way....I bank with the same bank I work for - and it ain't Chase - loser!
Calls at least one time daily - as many as 3 times in 1 day. Never leaves a message.
Yeah I don't have a chase bank accont and this number keeps calling me 1-800-555-0433

We keep getting calls at our office, and when I pick up the phone, they hang up. I was fortunate to be in front of our caller ID this time, and caught this number, so I looked it up online and found this site. Anyone who leaves or has left a message complaining about hang-ups from this number: CHECK WITH YOUR PHONE SERVICE PROVIDER AND YOUR LOCAL/STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. CONSTANT HANG-UPS MAY CONSTITUTE AS PHONE HARRASSMENT AND/OR STALKING. If this is the case in your area, get law enforcement involved.
I get calls on 3 phones, I do not have any account with Chase, when I ask to speak to a supervisor I only get voice mail. I am told they cannot find my number in their system, but I got a call on my cell yesterday, my office this afternoon, my fax etc.
I have never had a chase bank account or credit card. why are they calling me?
this number is legit. it was chase calling about an overdrawn account (the account was really overdrawn). They pulled up all my records (i.e. name of account, mailing address that I hadn't changed since moving, exact balances) without getting any information from me.
Unknown Caller Left message but it did not say Chase. Just said to call during business hours. Rec'd on a Saturday.
get a new phone from tmobile and received a call from this number
So Chase Employee...explain this to me...I am NOT overdrawn and the telephone banker told me that 800-555-0433 is not a legitimate number for Chase. I am ready to change banks.
I called Chase via their customer service number given on their website and told the representative at the other end about the mysterious caller claiming to be Chase. She advised:
1. If Chase calls you and asks you to verify your account number, address, or any other personal information, the caller is phishing. Chase never asks you to "confirm" personal information when they are calling you.
2. To get myself to a branch tomorrow and change my account number. The scammer, somehow, unfortunately, got a hold of my information and I should change it as soon as possible.
Don't be fooled. And guard what's yours. AND don't listen to the douche bags in this comment section who are touting the grandness of this phone number. They are either very stupid or sitting on their phones waiting to steal you blind.
Ok... this is freaky. They have not only been calling me all the time, but they seem to know how much is going in and out of my account. Time for a password change.
This is a phishing scam. they want you to verify your phone, acct info and ssn. Report them to the FTC at http://onguardonline.gov/filecomplaint.html
I think this is a legitimate credit collection agency, just clueless like so many others. My company got me a new cell phone number a year ago, and the person that the Telco had previously leased the number to skipped out on a lot of debt. For several months I got lots of calls for Julio, then nothing for over half a year. Now Chase's old records have them calling me again. They promised to remove me from the system, but I'm sure I'll be hearing back somewhere further down the line when the next collection agency buys the bad leads. Frustrating.
Stop buying from Ebay and Unresearched Companies on Web.
That is why you are getting these calls. They have phished your information from sites that are poorly run or corrupt. Before you hit that send button with your credit card info, ask yourself if those cool shoes are worth it or whether you can get something from a LEGITIMATE company? 9 times out of 10, you have crossed path with crooks and bought things on the internet without even knowing it. People are out there with the sole agenda of looting your accounts.
If you can't go to reversephonedirectory.com and look the number up. IT IS NOT REAL.
ALL MAJOR COMPANIES AND LEGITIMATE COMPANIES ARE LISTED IN THE PHONE BOOK.

Ask yourself. Would chase put a posting here telling you it was legit? If you were a customer and everything checked out would you post here? Exactly. They are typing behind people hoping for slow people to believe it is real. Are you slow or are you smart?
This is a HUGE scam. There is no typical Chase female voice when you call? Scammers can't buy that ladies voice.
There is a person that picks up the line and says hello? Call it and see. Then compare the way they pick this number up with the way they pick up the number on your card.
These guys are so stupid, they want you to believe anything. If you think it is a maybe real or maybe not, don't call it and go down to your local police and report it. They are already quite aware of their existence because they are stupid enough to keep using the same info over and over.

Don't have a chase account. calling a number no one knows i sit at. cool to be able to check it out here so i can ignore it with confidence:)
The half that say that this number is legit is right. They called and asked for my son, they didn't say why, but I know that his account has been overdrawn for quite some time. If you don't have a Chase account then you had better find out if you are a victim of indentity theft or whether they have your number in error. I wouldn't give out my SSN or authorize a phone check either, but you can handle overdrafts at your bank. BTW they have sent him several overdaft statements, but after a month or so the calls started.
half of you say this number is legit and the other half say it is a scam. i don't know who to believe >:O
I contacted chase directly from their website and they researched the # and said it is from their checking & savings customer service #. This is not a scam it is a legit #
Got 2 phone calls from this number. Did not answer first call. Googled number and found this. Answered 2nd call and recording said that I needed to call Chase. Called the Chase CS, not the number on the caller id, and they were not aware of that number.
calls every morning at 830
I knew this was not a real # because of the 555. Don't answer. Scam.
Yep, it's legit. Call your bank and straighten out the problem. If you're not a Chase customer, might be a good idea to call and tell them so. Why don't they just mail out overdraft notices like the good old days, rather than getting their customers freaked out over scams?
