When I answered I got a dead line. If credit card scam, I tell 'em that my credit card pays ME to use it what with the cash-back deals, points, etc. I use my card, get a bill, pay it, pay no interest, earn points/cash back. For some reason the scammer hangs up on me.

They keep calling me many times a day and I left it go to voice mail. I finally answered because I wanted to opt out. Instead the operator came on and said some very bad words and I hung up. He called back again and left some bad messages like the ones below. I blocked the number and hopefully no more voices messages.

I have been calls from this number for a very long time, daily, several times a day sometimes a robot call about lowering interest rates on credit card while other times there's no voice mail and they hang up after I pick up after a lengthy pause. I blocked the number for awhile and right after I unblocked it the number started ca lling again. It's Harrassing
, annoying and I think against the law yet it continues. I blocked the number again.

The same tired old "lower interest rate" scam. I tell them I bank with "The Bank of Eunuchs and Castrati" and they take the information every time before asking me to repeat it when they can't seem to find that particular bank. I wonder why?

Recorded voice saying they were calling from credit services to tell me this was my last chance to lower my rates. CID just said "toll-free call." I pressed 1 when I got the option to speak to a (real person) CSR. I told her please take me off their list. Then she said something to me and I almost fell off my couch. She told me to shut up. I said did you really just tell me to shut up and she said yes. I then told her she could f*** off and die. Another call to block.

Called and when I opted out on key pad, person stayed on the line, and when I said please don’t call me again as I recognize this is a scam, he threatened to call me every 5 minutes and call me a wh@$#*, among other things. Trying to figure out how to report to sears because like others commented, when you call back it ask for credit card number and SSN.

I had a missed call from this number. I called back and it said Sears Credit Card and to either type in account number or social security number to access account. I believe it’s a scam and it’s one way for them to get your social. I have never owned a sears credit card or buy anything from there. I think it’s scammers pretending to be Sears. I would be aware and not give them any personal info

When I get any of these kinds of calls, and if I am in the mood to play- I will start asking THEM questions, like their street address, who their phone provider is, what kind of pop they drink. I used to think not answering decreased the calls, but it does not- so may as well have fun, then block the number

Heads up everyone. Did you know that most scam calls are placed by a computer? Did you know that the computer engages the call once we say, ‘hi’ or ‘hello’?

Because of such, I always answer my phone by saying, good morning or good afternoon... how can I help you?

In most cases, after about 7 seconds, their computer disengages the call automatically.

In the event it’s a person making the scam call, they typically hang up, thinking they have reached a business.

Saying, good morning or good afternoon, how can I help you? ... Does not violate any policies with your phone company when using a private telephone line.

As I was writing this I got a scam call. I answered it, good evening how can I help you? No one spoke. Their computer automatically disengaged the call.

Try it, you’ll thank me later.

Sears sent a letter stating that they were upgrading my Sears card to a Master Card, and unless I called to decline the offer, it would be done automatically. The number to call to cancel the upgrade is (800) 669-8488. I called this number and cancelled the upgrade, but did it without having to speak to anyone. Someone must also be using this same phone number to cover their real caller ID. From overseas, no doubt.

Block call, Do not answer! They act like they are from your credit card company, but in fact are not. They claim to be from Card member Services representing all major Visa & Mastercard companies to discuss lowering your credit card interest rates. However they can not tell me my name or what credit card they are calling about. They are overseas and say they already have your information in their system, but need to verify the credit card balance and other information in order to offer you better rates. When repeatedly instructed to place the number on their do not call list and never call back, they do not agree and say they will call back tomorrow. Only way to stop is to block number.

Scam. They also use 800-669-8488,Sear credit card. Same recording. Wanting you to enter your card or ss#.They use so many numbers I quit blocking them and answer if I'm driving or have nothing to do. The call center must be in pakistan. Just my guess.I like to insult them in a low voice while they are delivering their rip off spiel. Lol they yell and scream so that you can hear them spitting. Then I hang up. If I have to waste my time answering their call I should at least have a little fun.
