People getting these calls who want to help put a stop to them should go to the web site www.heatherwitaccountservices.com to get the info on the real identities of the criminals behind this scam and the agencies to report them to using this info. Reporting them using the fake names they give out (Card Services, Financial Services, etc.) or the fake phone numbers that they illegally cause to show up on your Caller ID does little good.

They have a new number - 866-900-5213

I've been bugged about car warranty also, as I've said here: http://whocallsyou.com/850-475-5122
The odd part is that I don
They simply won't stop calling. Calls at least once a day.
Three calls in one week. 1-877-217-1411
is their phone. These people are PESTS! When I ask to be removed, they hang up. RUDE! I am also on the "do not call" list! They are "Leveragemydebt.com" and they are in Florida.

When the "live operator" came on the phone I said, "East Colonial Drive in Orlando, Florida, right?" She didn't know what to say. 954-535-9912 is another phony number courtesy of Leverage My Debt out of Orlando, Fl. Someone posted their real number 866-513-2103
) under another fake number they use 850-475-5122
), and I used that info to track them down using Google. Found them in SuperPages, and also found a Craig's list ad they posted in Orlando.

Do a Google search on this number 850-475-5122
) to see their Craig's List ad, and to see how to file a complaint with the FTC. Filing complaints with www.donotcall.gov doesn't work for fake numbers. More people need to contact the FTC to stop these guys, they've had free reign for far too long.
Got call - did not answer. Am on no call list. Info for anyone trying to peg these people for violating the law.
The number shows up from Pensacola, Florida. The number has appeared several times in the last month. Also, the telephone number 412-235-6107
keeps appearing. I am so glad that I have caller ID:):)
Phony sleaze bag identifying herself as "Heather". She has left numerous messages from different phone numbers showing on caller ID saying "There is no problem with your credit card, but call immediately to negotiate a lower rate". How would they know anything about anyone's credit card? They just want your card number so they can rip you off.
Blocking their number is fruitless because next time they call it is from a different number. Most of the numbers are Maine area codes.

In the complaint section I mentioned how the company uses fake CallerID numbers to evade the DoNotCall laws. BTW, I got the street address from SuperPages.com.
We can beat this company!
Def, and Bill,
Thanks for your research-
I am calling them, and getting a bunch of friends to help-
At the 20th phone call about auto warranties, I decided i was going to give them my full attention, and not stop until someone is in tears....
Warranty coverage expired
They are hounding me as well. Only my caller ID gives "unknown" as the number. I finally got fed up and stayed on the phone to actually talk to a real person. A female answered with an unenthusiastic "Do you have a credit card balance over $3000.00 (I don't)?" I immediately asked for their registered agent for service in process and told her I am reporting them for violation of the National Do Not Call Registry. She immediately hung up and I went to the internet and found this site. I am really getting fed up with these guys.
This is Bill B again, I'm the one who posted the Craig's List ad (about 11 posts above). Since 850-475-5122 (fake) and 866-513-2103
(real) belong to the same company of jerks I've started filing (2) complaints with www.donotcall.gov each time they call, one for each number.
I will be contacting my state's Attorney General's office to see if there is anything they can do about it.
I'm also going to file a complaint with the FTC by using their Contact Us page:
I know they tell us to use the donotcall.org website, but this company is using phony numbers, and filing complaints with DNC is NOT working!
I suggest everyone do the same. Let's keep vigilant and keep up with these jerks, whenever they change their real number I hope someone posts it.
i just got a call from this number on my cell phone. i let it go to voice mail, but it didnt leave a message. called back, and it was an invalid number.
we get calls from these people 4 to 5 times a week, sometimes it is 'cardholder services' sometimes it is 'account services', sometimes it is 'warranty services'. Sometimes the person claims to be located in florida, most recently the person said he was in atlanta, ga, when later i asked him "you are in atlanta, right?", he said, "no i'm in marrietta, ga" When i asked for a street address, he hung up (which seems to be usual). I always try to get a phone number to call them back on, which usually gets them to hang up on me, sometimes They give me a fake number. Sometimes they tell me they can't give me a phone number until I qualify...
Call came in about 3:30 pm CST. No message was left. When I called the number, there was an error tone and a message saying, "We're sorry. You have reached a number has been disconnected or is no longer in service...." etc.
shelly Oliver Feb 28th, 2008
I GET THIS CALL EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. CALLER ID SHOWS FLORIDA. I DON'T KNOW ANTONE IN FLORIDA SO I ON'T ANSWER, THEY NEVER LEAVE MESSAGE.
Thanks to this website I know not to answer!
MamaTyson74 Feb 28th, 2008
"Account Services" or "Financial Services". I try to waste their time or ask for manager and they hang up on me. Tried "press 2 to stop receiving call" but I'm pretty sure it doesn't do anything so I figure I'll just waste their operator's time.
a number that wakes you up in the morning and is not available on calling back.. (called me twice)
Good Job Bill B! Keep digging crime stoppers! The more digging we do, we can can give better information to our DNC complaint lines for their follow up. The Oregon attorney general did send a letter to a credit card company for me once. Wasn't my credit card, belonged to my mother in law, they kept calling me in spite of me telling them not to. They DID pay attention to the Oregon attorney general letter and stopped calling so there is hope!
If you can help it don't use your cell phone for any business or credit card transactions. Use it strictly for friends and family members. Hell the government can't even find Osama Bin Laden so they certainly aren't going to find these insignificant low-lifes!
This time the recording said it was Factory Activation Center. Pressed 1, this lady wasn't as rude as a previous encounter was. I asked to be put on their Internal DNC list and she hung up. Checked out the number that Def gave above (on 2008-02-23) and found this on Orlando's Craig's List (http://orlando.craigslist.org/acc/542296852.html):

I get this call constantly and I'd like to strangle Heather with a phone cord.
Sid Vicious Feb 26th, 2008
Got call from this number, didn't answer. Called it right back and got a disconnected number message.
D. Vinette Feb 26th, 2008
For all of you who think the folks at the FTC will investigate, you are dead wrong. They only work with the FCC to create a list which they supply to reputable (?) telemarketers. They will not get off their butts and actually investigate these people. If you don't have any proof of who or what company called then they will do nothing.

Just got off the phone with Tim Marlowe of "card services" - 866-513-2103
AKA Leverage my Debt
All these scammers are in Orlando
They are controlled by the Attorney General
They can reduce my interest rates on my cards - (but he didn't know which cards I had and he didn't know the balances, etc) And he'd just take his fees out of what they saved me by negotiating with my credit card companies.
I think they also have another scam on auto warranties.
I just acted as stupid as he
was so he gave me the 866 phone number above.
If you'll all call, perhaps they really will just "turn out the lights and lock the doors" as the smart-axx said he'd do. Im sure they get some of these calls, but if all the folks they pester do it, then they'll be too busy to fish for more suckers.
Give them enough calls that they don't have time to pester us or others. They kinda got pissed when I told them that I'd keep calling them to waste their time like they're calling me to waste my time.
Give em a call
Just thought I'd let you know that this company tele- sells many services I got my call from "
This is just the latest (fake) phone number used in that scam that says there is some "urgent" issue with your credit card. I have gotten calls from this company(s) under several different numbers. When they called yesterday, and it came up "unavailable", I pressed 1 and talked to some punk who, when pressed, said the firm was Global Card Services. Sure--and my name is Lucille Ball. Reported it anyway.
NOW THEY HAVE MY CELL PHONE NUMBER...ALWAYS CALLING ABOUT CREDIT CARD PROMOTIONS OR SOMETHING,.
I AM ON THE "DO NOT CALL LIST" DOESN'T SEEM TO MATTER.
It's amazing how many differnet "warranty" companies are out there. Fuckin' jerkoffs.
Call came in while I was out. Caller left no message. Showed up on caller ID
Same number called my cell phone and the recorded mesasge went to voicemail. now a message of warrenty coverage. WTF!
Ugh! I hope the DoNotCall.gov list can track these assholes down!
Yesterday they called about lower credit card rates from the Florida number but a live person stated they were from Atlanta, GA. They called this afternoon but this time the caller ID read "unknown name". There was a prerecorded message about my warranty expiring and they could help.
A call to my Cell phone for auto warranty coverage !!!
When I was passed to a live operator I asked to not receive any more of these calls.
She laughed and hung up
Called my cell phone about and auto warranty. none of our cars are under warranty.
What's the deal with Florida being the source of all these unsolicited calls in violation of law?
I do know Florida is a spammers haven as well.
Recording about extending warranty coverage on a vehicle. I don't have a vehicle with warranty coverage. Probably another slamming or phishing scam. I'm on the Do Not Call registry.
An obvious scam. I pressed one and let them answer and did not say anything. He hung up after 15 seconds. This at least will reduce the number of calls from these idiots.
The numbers seems to be on old South Central Bell number that was ported to a different service provider. The old land line location was on Gadsden Street in Pensacola (zip 32501). An apartment complex (Chateau Royale Apts) on Gadsden was recently demolished and maybe the user had to move elsewhere.

I didn't answer cell phone, since missed the call. never did call back, didnt recognize the number. I have had the same call at home and did answer. Recorded message about a credit card account and a lower intrest rate, after hearing the message I hung up.
I got the same person on my caller id @ 313-531-5797
but don't mind talking. When I answer they always hang up?
Got my first call from this number 3 days ago. Just a hang up. I will block them now like many others so they get a fast busy signal when they call. I can still see them when i log onto my Teleblend.com account(see when they called, but it never reaches my house phones). If you do not have VOIP then I suggest it, so you to can block unwanted calls deriving from certain numbers from ever bothering you again. Just like me. I will never go back to a regular land line again.
This is a scam that asks for your credit card numbers. They call me often, and they won't stop calling. Why don't the state attoneys general start tracking these criminals?
This is seemingly a new phone number from a company that I previously received numerous calls from. They are scammers and I (as well as several others) reported them to the Florida state police. It is a credit card scam. If your phone allows it, have this phone number blocked and you won't continue to be bothered by these BLEEPS.
Recording tries to sound like they're calling from your credit card number. They're aren't. When I asked where they were calling from, they said Florida. When I asked for their address, they put me on hold and never came back.
Got a call around 2:30 today. Did not answer. No message. From what I've read here, I'm definitely glad I did not answer.
No message left this time - has called before about Credit Card account that "is not in trouble right now".
No one said anything. There was no background noise either. I kept saying "hello" and then the call ended (they hung up). I tried returning the call twice and the automated message informed me that the number had been disconnected.
I emailed the Assistant Chief of Police in Pensacola,FL Chief Simmons his email Address is CSimmons@ci.pensacola.fl.us. Perhaps if enough of us email him he might get these people.
2/13/08 PENSACOLA, FL LEFT MESSAGE ABOUT LOWERING INTEREST RATES.
Similar robo-message as mentioned here. Claimed their name was "Financial Services". Submitted a DNCL complaint.
Ben Marcotte Feb 13th, 2008
i saw 'florida' on the caller id led display and did not answer the call. i am on do not call list but i guess that does not matter to these a**holes.
Did not answer phone. No message left by caller. Tried calling # back out of curiosity - and system said 'disconnected'. Not first time calls received from this number.
I just called the Division of Agriculture and Consumer Services in Florida. It was suggested that I fill out an on-line complaint. Directions to do so are--go to www.800helpfla.com. On the left click on file a complaint. Maybe if we all do it everytime they call, someone will stop them.
MikeandAmy Feb 11th, 2008
We've received numerous calls from this company (but don't have caller ID, so can't confirm #), and it definitely is the same company. When we first inquired who/what it was, it was "Financial Services" company in Georgia. The latest call, the lady was actually rude to my wife.
Has anyone contacted the Florida Attorny General's office?

Mike and Amy Feb 11th, 2008
Called and played an automated recording claiming to deal with my Auto Warranty (which would've been through Ford). I pressed '1' to talk to a customer service rep to see who they really were, and when the gentleman answered, I told him that they'd auto-called me and he hung up on me.
I just got a call with a recording.. something like "this is a message from your credit card provider. there's no problem with your account but it is urgent...."
that's where I hung up and came here :)
I didn't answer and my answering machine was not on. I do believe more crooks are "born" every day! Where's the exterminator???
Just said Pensacola,FL on the caller ID. They didn't leave a message, I'm hurt.
The number comes up on my phone and they do not leave a message and does not tell me who they are at all. Should I change my number so they would stop calling me?
Im lonley I wish someone would call me seven o four 578 eight one 7 nine
This company often cloaks its phone number so that it doesn't show up in Caller ID. It also leaves messages on voicemail. The company sometimes identifies itself as "Account Services", or "Card Services". The caller will not give the company's name or address. Sometimes, you can trick them into giving you their phone number by asking if you can call them back.
To file a complaint go to : donotcall.gov/confirm/Conf.aspx
Also, please call Congressman Jeff Miller's office and let them know about violations.

Called attempting to sell me an extended warranty on my vehicle... a '67 Saab
Lolz on them.
Automated message, want to lower your interest rate on Credit Card
3rd time these guys called. The automated message, press 1, then the rep answers saying "Consumer Services in mumblemumble, Florida". I asked why they were still calling after asking to be removed twice before and why they call me since I'm on the DNC list. The guy (same voice as the previous call) hung up before I could say "list"! I've got to figure out a way to get this guy "on the record".
2nd time these guys called. 1st time I selected "2" to have my # removed. This time I selected "1" to speak to a live person. The rep answered and I asked him to repeat the company name twice since he said is fast and slurred. "Consumer Services" he said. I asked the company's address. He responded "1-800-None-of-Your-Business" and hung up immediately. Rather rude for a company that expects repeat customers. From the comments posted here, I expect it is a phishing web site. Call my phone company, who took the information then offered me more call blocking services for an additional $8/month. They said to report to the DNCL. I am on the Colorado DNCL.
Heather from "account services" This is a new number, it's usually 850-475-5122
. As usual, I play along to try to get some legitimate info. Got the usual responses, no mailing address, no website, no phone number, blah blah blah. Reported (as I always do) to the FCC, Do Not Call. Hopefully one day these ****** will get caught.
I just tried to call back the 850-475-5122 number and received a recorded message stating that the number is no longer in service. Funny how they just called from this number though!!!
Just receieved a call from this 850-475-5122 number. The line was open and after saying "Hello" twice, the call was disconnected. Thanks to the below comments I will be adding this number to my block list!!!
This is probably the 10th call from this recording (not always the same number on called id) I pushed 1 to speak to a human and then pretended to be interested in the "lower interest rate" , because last time when I asked to be removed from their list, I was hung up on. Asked the companys name, was told "account services" I asked for a website, was told there isn't one, asked for an address, was told there isn't one, only that they were located in GA. I asked for a phone number, was told they can't get incoming calls. I reported to the do not call registery.
has called twice saying they are account services and to lower your acount rate and speak to someone press "1"
when I called back the line says it is disconnected. I am on the DNCL.
When I picked up this call, it is an automated announcement for lowering my 'credit card' rates. It prompted me to dial "0" to speak to an attendant. "Mark" picked up the phone and when I asked if they respect the do not call registry, he simply HUNG UP!
Pensacola, FL call from Card Services. I have been called well over 30 times. I have asked to be reomoved from their list and they continue to call sometimes 4 times a week. The FCC needs to get on these guys. They are downright rude when you try to talk to them. I would love to pay them a visit. These guys must be stopped and prosocuted.
I tried calling the number back, and like a previous post, it's a Florida cell phone #, it says it's been disconnected. They some how send a phantom caller ID.
NY Sceptic Feb 01st, 2008
This is about 10th time Consumer Services has called saying I don't have a credit problem but this is my final chance to get a lower percenatge rate on my credit card.
I use a device from privacy corps
1st one in the list "President's Choice" to keep these types
of calls from bothering me more than once. It's worth the
price to me. Phone company won't let you block more than 6
numbers so I chose this device. Set it up.. Mark a number
as unwanted and send it to a dead line or answering machine.
Even blocks numbers that do not show a caller ID or a false one.
Scam. Just criminals trying to get whatever information they can. I don't understand why scum like this are allowed to continue hurting people.
Spammer again! Violates DNC instructions.
Did not pick up phone since I did not recognize the phone number. Always call back using *67 to keep my identity private- it was a disconnected number when I did this.
Have been receiving lots of solicitor callings since the beginning of the year-believe I need to renew my number on the Do Not Call list, did this a few years ago and have not received any of these before, never had a problem, but heard it's not a one time thing. Believe I heard it's in the works for the government to make a bill that will make a registering with Do Call List permanent instead of having to renew it. Haven't had time to research this.
This call always comes to us from "Heather at the Account Services"."Heather" really gets around for being a lumpy-assed slob who sits on the sofa calling people to con them out of their credit card #'s, doesn't she? After realizing that pressing 2 to remove my number does nothing, I have started pressing 1 to speak to a "live", actually rather brain-dead representative to tell them to remove my #. One time I let the phone ring for 1 1/2 minutes before some trogladyte of a woman answered the phone very angrily. I reminded her that she was the one who called me and if neither of us were happy about it, perhaps she should stop. She didn't like my tone and slammed down the phone. Sometimes the call is from 1-850-475-5122, an inactive # in Pensacola, Fla. They are probably using a service like Vonage to keep people from tracing them to their crackhouse. Other times the # is scrambled. The FCC won't do anything b/c I am not a psychic and cannot provide any more info than I have already. When will the FCC, FTC, or FBI do something about this? "Heather" is obviously a national problem.

offered a lower interest rate, asked for customer service # of best account, then asked for account #. I hung up.
caller id said Pensacola,FL no message left.
offered lower interest rate on credit card. hung up when i said i didn't have a credit card.
Reporting these guys to the FCC is pointless. They have the ability to mask their number. The number you reveive via caller ID is NOT the number they are calling from. They are not a legit business. The are con artists that will only take your money, and never give any info about themselves.
They left a recorded message on the answering machine. When I called the number back, it was disconnected. A google search of the number indicates they are scammers.
Hummmmm, 1st call. We shall see if I block them or not.. No message Left.
No Message, never have gotten a call from this number before.
