"Heather from Account Services" calls every day now. THE
FTC WEBSITE TO REPORT ILLEGAL TELEMARKETING CALLS HAS BEEN DOWN FOR OVER A
MONTH. Not that FTC did anything before, you understand. If Congress
people ever answered their own phones or looked at their own e-mail
(spam), they might understand the plague of BS real people have to endure
every day. How much did telemarketers contribute to presidential and
congressional campaigns? Why is "Account Services" allowed to carry on
their illegal business unimpeded? What would happen if YOU violated Federal
law 10,000 times an hour?
i have selected option "3" to no longer recieve calls and i am still called. when i selected the option to speak to a person, as sooln as i said that this call was in violation of my federal rights they hung up. This needs a class action law suit!!!
Hi My name is Margarita McManus. I here to set everyone straight about this number my parents had this number changed May of 2006. They aren't telemarketer they can't stand them either they've done everything they can do to get them to quit calling them also. Besides 8 months out the year they are in another state working. I really don't know who is doing this but it needs to stop and if I found out who's doing I will let you know who's doing just as well.
Sincerely, Margarita McManus
Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. I didn't answer and they left no message.
leave me alone Jul 23rd, 2007
I just moved into a new place, with a new and unlisted number. My first day here I got a call from this number. I didn't answer. Also got a call from this number as well: 000-000-0000
. Obviously didn't answer that one, either. Amazing how they can snag an unlisted number so fast. Very annoying.
Left no message on answering machine..
Caller ID said Unknown Name and they didn't leave a message.
Just got a call from these people. Recorded message said it was about lowering my credit card interest rate. Yeah right, I hear ya. Anyhow, I called back 2 minutes later and it's been disconnected. SCAM!!!! Watch out!!
Have gotten several pre-recorded messages from "card holder services". Same deal. press 9 to talk to a representative, press 8 to be taken off call list. When I press 8, I get a message saying "this is not a valid response". When I speak to a rep, and tell them to please take me off the list, they hang up. Played along a bit to get some info, first spoke with "Peter Fondue" (yeah, right) and then Renee who hesitantly said they were located in Illinois, then hung up. Scum. Phone ID says "Unkown Number"
Number was on phone.No message left.This is not the first time."Whocalled"list tells me i"m not alone....
RECIEVED ANOTHER MESSAGE, AGAIN I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE FCC. THIS IS PROBABLY A ID THEFT RING OR SCAM TO GET CREDIT CARD NUMBERS. EVERYONE BEAWARE, DON'T EVER GIVE ANYONE THAT CALLS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU. IF IT'S A CREDIT CARD COMPANY YOU ALREADY DO BUISNESS WITH THEY WILL NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING. MAKE SURE YOU FILE COMPLAINTS WITH THE FCC.

The phone number and name in Caller ID is fake. Go to:
and see for yourself.
They spoof their number & name to any disconnected phone in any State they choose. They will rob you in a minute.
Everyone, PLEASE take 5 minutes and send the FCC a form 1088 regarding this number. Yes, it's most likely faked/stolen, but they will still investigate and can subpoena call records.
thought this call was from family back home but I don't know the number and no one answers....no msg left on my mach. We are on the do not call list.
Credit card re-financing. Pressed 1 to speak with someone. Asked operator why they don't check/honor Nat'l Do Not Call Registry. He hung up on me.
BOB YOUNGERS Jun 25th, 2007
No caller ID. Left no message. I am on Do Not Call List.
2nd call this week about my credit cardso pressed 1 to talk to an "agent". Answered fairly rapidly with "Do you have over $2500 in credit card debt?". I asked "Can you tell me what card this is reference to? Immediately switched me over to another number who didn't know who they were calling so asked for name and phone number. I said I was on the national no call list and wanted to know what card they were calling about so that I could tell my credit card company not to call.
They hung up.
called me 2 times so far this week...no msg.
Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. I missed the call and they didn't leave a message.
Received a call 06/11/2007, some telemarketing recording was left on my machine. Filed complaint with the FCC. ****FILING COMPLAINTS THROUGH THE DO NOT CALL LIST WILL NOT GET YOU ANY WHERE. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO FINE OR PROSECUTE PEOPLE, THE FCC DOES AND WILL DO IT. THEY HANDLE ANYTHING THAT DEALS WITH PHONES OR COMMUNICATIONS. I have attached the website to this message. http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/complaints.html
Cory in Texas Jun 21st, 2007
Got call from this number-no message left. Shows up as Florida Call.
I received a call from this number but didn't answer and they left no message. My number is on the DNC list so if someone knows these are telemarketing calls they should be reported.
stop calling my home 631 687-22**. I have reported you to donotcall.gov
call was a recorded message saying I could lower my interest rate if I was over $2500 in debt. I hung up.
Luis Interiano Jun 20th, 2007
I got a call with the automated message stating the vehicle I'm currently driving is almost up on its warranty. Too bad two vehicles we own are over 12 years old and the other is a brand new HHR we picked up a month ago. I called the number back but it's been disconnected, big surprise.
Caller ID said Florida call with this number. That's all I've got. I'm reporting it to DNC list.

No message left
call id just said Florida
& the number
Since mid May this number calls me every weekday at 10:30 am CDT. Every day it leaves a different message on my answering machine. I think it's a scam & a fraud. One message was from a man with a stern voice who said it was "from card services with an urgent message about my account" and said it was imperative for me to call back as soon as possible. Instead I called the number on the back of the only credit card that I have and they said they never contacted me and my account is fine (I have a $5500 limit but only have $460 balance on the card and make payments every month on time). Another message was from an overly excited young woman who said I won an all expense paid vacation for 2 and needed to call back asap in order to claim the prize. When I saw the same phone number with a different message in a different person's voice, I ignored it. Then there was the message from a man who said he had urgent information to discuss about a family member who was stranded in Florida without any way to get back home to Wisconsin. WTF??!! All my family is right here in WI and nobody has traveled farther than 20 miles to work and back. And it continues. One time I answered the call and it was a recording leaving me a recorded message about a trip I won to Cancun. No way to talk to them unless I call back, which I won't do. I think they are just trying to get credit card numbers so they can make fraudelent charges. Beware, don't give them any info.
Caller ID: PENSECOLA, FL

Sick of Scum Jun 19th, 2007
recorded telemarketing call about "your current credit cards"...
I get a call from these people every couple of weeks or so.
No name in caller ID, just number. Reported to FTC at the Do not call list website. You should too. https://www.donotcall.gov/Complain/ComplainCheck.aspx
I answered the call, but no response on their end.
I answered becuase we have friends in Pensacola, it was not them...I was curious so pressed 1 and spoke to a live person offering to consolidate my credit cards...he asked if I had more than $5000 in credit card debt, I said no, he asked if I was sure, I said yes...the call disconnected...how RUDE!!
I basically know how companies like this work. When you go shopping or inside of a department store (for example: Marshalls) and they ask you for your phone number (& if you provide it), this is how companies like this get your phone number. Whether you are on the do not call registry or not (b/c you basically volunteered this info). These automated services call you, not the actual representative so they actually do not have you phone number at all. On their end on the phone, it actually looks like you were the one that called them instead of the automated service. Option number 2 to remove your phone number basically does not work. You can remove your number by immediately telling the representative to remove your number from the do not call log but you will have to provide it and it will be removed in about 2-3 days. It's just like e-mail spam, if you just delete it you'll have more in your inbox the next day but if you unsubscribe from their site they stop after a few days. Take it from an insider trust me it works, hanging up does not help - the automated service just calls you back at a later date. Try not to be so mean (I know the calls are annoying) these people are just doing their jobs, which is not fun in the first place. They basically mislead us about the content, pay and requirements of the job and that's why I will be quitting and looking for another by the end of the week and reporting them to the BBB and the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Receptionist job my a&*.
Have a great day
Vehicle warranty telemarketing sales.
Update: This week the same call only says it’s ‘Consumer Services’ with a different number 850-456-1207
I did some research on the phone numbers it is a discontinued number for a Pensacola, FL business thereby making any complaint useless. Last week it was a Fort Lauderdale, Fl discontinued number again making any complaints useless.
I have been getting this same phone call now for the past 4 weeks, although it shows a different phone number on caller ID. This time it was a automated call that said this is ‘Consumer Services’ that I needto update my credit card rates. That I need to act now by pressing 1. This was my last chance. I did some research on the phone number it is a discontinued number for a Pensacola, FL business thereby making any complaint useless. Last week it was a Fort Lauderdale, Fl discontinued number again making any complaints useless.
called Id said Pensacola Florida-no message left but when I redialed it said this number was disconnected. Number displayed was 850-456-1207 3:03 pm.
received calls from this number 850-456-1207. Don't know who it is so I didn't answer the calls.
It's a recording about lowering an interest rate on credit card debt. I push "1" to speak with a live person and then the phone disconnects me after a few moments. I'm like a dog with a bone, I will be getting to the bottom of this! : )
Got a call today from this number....funny thing is I got a call yesterday from 954-689-7681
with the same sales pitch about reducing credit card interst rates....this is a SCAM do not press 9 to remove your name...they aren't removing it....
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL. Did not answer. I am on the Do Not Call list. I guess that doesn't really work.
Called at 10:00 am.
Did not leave a message.
When I called the number right back, it said that it had been disconnected.
Pensacola,FL 850-456-1207 on caller id...didn't answer...no message left...they hung up
(850)456-1207 is a disconnected number, so they are not calling from there. These tricksters are obviously faking the caller ID information so that the origin of their calls cannot be detected. This is called "caller ID spoofing," and it is becoming popular (look it up on wikipedia.)
Ignore the caller ID information. Martin McManus is probably a victim in this too. Imagine the number of people who are calling. He has probably been forced to change his number.
I am on the Do Not Call list. When they called me, it was about credit card interest rates, but they seem to calling others with a variety of pitches. This is illegal telemarketing calls at a minimum, but it could be worse - a scam to get you to reveal your information over the phone so that your identity can be stolen.
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL. Answered on second ring. Fast-talking woman (recording?) talked about reducing indebtedness; refinancing; some such thing. Asked to wait to speak with a representative; no one came on the phone and was eventually disconnected. Called number back 2X; recording says number is discontinued/disconnected. Google search indicates number is for Martin McManus.
I didn't answer, no message left.
No message left.
I tried to call the number back, but I got a "phone number is no longer in service or has been disconnected" message from the operator.
tried to call number back says disconnected or no longer in service
Lets Repost that, I didnt answer it and when i called it back it said no such number.
Called at 12:45 and left no message.
Same thing as many others have said did answer it then i called it back on the cell said it was disconnected. Stupid...
i had this message and when i called back it said out of service
get calls all the time. let my machune pick up. what is most annoying is that it leaves a busy tone that takes up about 5 minutes of my machine.
also long recorded intro, press 1 to speak to live operator, you must want to consolidate your credit card debt which must be > $5K. "we have an agreement with all the major credit cards". When I informed the operator that I'm on the do not call list I heard typing in the background and got cut off.
"Urgent" call about my credit card. "Very important" that I call back right away.
Trying to trick me into thinking that they are calling from my credit card company. Bastards. Should be illegal. Oh that's right, it is. Double bastards.
Precorded message from Lisa with Cancun Vacation Center. Caller ID showed came from Pensecola FL
Answered just as answering machine picked up call. Caller hung up. Caller I.D. number. Called Number less than a minute later and got messaage that I reached a number that had been disconnected.
I got a call from this number, they left no message. When I called it back it said that it was no longer in service. I'm on the Do not Call list!! How does this happen?
I recieved a call from 850-456-1207 and they were selling vacations in Cancun, Orlando, FL and Daytona, FL.
call as mc manus , martin no answer
Second time they called. I am on the do not call list and my number is unlisted. When I try to tell them I'm on the DNC list, they hang up immediately. The message claims I have credit card debt of $2000 and I must talk to them immediately. I am debt free. This time I got a name and an address: Card Holder, PO Box State Row 7, Pensacola, Fl. When I asked for the zip code, she wouldn't give it me. Asked if I was $50,000 in credit card debt. I said no, she hung up. Have reported them to the DNC list twice.
Received call from this number. 3 rings, no message. We are on the National No-Call List. This outfit is in federal violation.

Caller ID: unknown

Did not answer - do not answer calls that I do not know the number if unidentified.
Will be reporting to DNC List
I've been getting calls from Pensacola, FL at least once a week if not more for over two months. Don't answer calls, and they usually don't leave a message ubt if they do its some credit card scam or auto warranty scam. Just moved to new address in March and my Do not call for state and federal does not go into effect until July.
Cuts into message on ans mach. Final offer for low interest rate. Dunno what kind of loan they're referring to. Says press 1 to hear this special offer or 2 to be removed. 2nd call in a week. Reporting them to Do Not Call website.
Showed up Pensacola, Fl on caller ID. I wasn't home. They left no message!
Called me twice. I didn't answer. Says NO CALLER ID when calling - number shown only.
850-456-1207 reported disconnected. Based on another post here, I called 800-831-7668
, spoke to manager Chris. When confronted with the 850-456-1207 number he didn't disagree. He said a nonprofit organization was making the calls:
346 Fair Oaks St.
San Francisco, CA 94146
He refused to give me their number.
was on my Caller ID
Rapid City SD Jun 01st, 2007
Also rec'd a call (recorded msg) to lower credit card debt (that I don't have), also rec'd same call from 850-456-1207
, same msg...maybe a scam?
googled comes up Martin McManus. Caller ID reads Florida.
Caller ID says Credit Rate Off, they left a ludicrous offer for a $99 Florida trip on my answering machine.
have received several calls from this number. it registered pensacola, fl. - no message.
Got a call from this # today @ 11:48 a.m. Don't know this number, didn't answer, didn't leave a message.
Financial services message. Crappy junk call. Didn't answer. I'm on the no call list.
Don't bother to answer calls from this number.
Caller ID said "Pensacola, FL"; recording said it was CardMember Services and that everything was okay with my account, but they needed to talk to me about consoldating my debt. The first time they called, I pressed the button for "do not call again." Second time, I pressed "1" for speak to an operator about consolidating my debt. Operator asked me if I pressed "1" so I could consolodate my debt. I asked what company she was with - Cardmember Services (with whom we do have an account). I said that they were not supposed to solicit from me, and she hung up immediately.
They called at 1:40 PM EST and I didn't answer. They didn't leave a message and when I called back, I get a message saying "we're sorry. you have reached a number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service". I think it's like spoofing email addresses. They just pull dead numbers to put in the caller ID so no one can trace the calls back to the telemarketers/scammers.
Automated voice call identifying themselves as Cardholder Services. I hung up and didn't hear all the recorded message.
Caller ID Pensacola, FL. Did not answer, no message left by caller.
They said something about Cancun. I didn't think and hung up. I am on the Do Not Call List.
Card Holder Services
Called at 2:11pm EST
Registered as Unknown Name on callerID.
Long automated message about being selected for Credit Card consoladation and press 1 to talk to live rep. Once rep came on, I asked if "Card Holder Services" was there official company name. She ignored me and asked if I had $5,000 or more in debt. When I said answer my question first, she hung up. Tried to call the number back and came up as a disconnected number.
I am on the DNC registry and reporting them now.

It's a link to BellSouth where the phone number is registered. Maybe if enough of us complain they'll do something about it.
Some kind of telemarketing scheme selling dirt cheap vacations.
Martin Mc Manus (850) 456-1207 15 Pen Haven Dr, Pensacola, FL 32506
I'm in MA. I got a call on 5/23 at 12:12pm. It was a message saying that they had important information about my credit accounts.
Was called from 8504561207 and no one was on the line. I returned the call and get recording that the number has been disconnected.
Caller ID showed a call from Pensacola, FL (850)456-1207 - I didn't answer
Called at 10:58 on May 23. I was asked if I had more than $2,500 of credit card debt. I asked to be sent a copy of their "Do Not Call" policy, as I am entitled to under federal law. The operator said, "And you can shove it up your fat ass", then hung up.
Got a call at 11 AM did not answer. When I called back the number it was disconnected....probably a scammer
I answered...they didn't.
