Called at 4:33 PM 12/11/08. Left no msg. Caller ID'd as "Florida."

Googled it and found this and many other reports/complaints about the "automobile warranty about to expire" scam attempts.

I've gotten at least 25 calls from at least 13 different numbers, almost all of which caller ID as "Florida" since December of 2007.

Here are the numbers (in order of use):

850-433-1850
850-638-9224
305-672-6663
321-504-7429
321-729-9349
386-738-4001
863-467-8918
772-978-0477
1 305-362-5314
1 305-408-6643
1 850-230-8870
1 850-626-1361
1 407 251-6572

A new number shows up about each month. They're "spoofing" caller ID, and and the phone numbers. They're also obviously changing to "new" numbers to avoid detection & countermeasures. Such as "Blocked Caller" lists.

I'm sharing this info with my Maryland Attorney General's Office and a major local TV outlet (WBAL-TV 11, Baltimore). As a result of a WBAL-TV investigative report on these "Florida" phone scammers, the OAG has promised an aggressive investigation to find and prosecute them ... and - to coordinate efforts with other states's AG's.

So - FILE FORMAL COMPLAINTS WITH YOUR RESPECTIVE STATES'S ATTORNEYS GENERAL OFFICES and share this information with them.

This place has called me before, call the number back and it says number does not exist. I reported this to the FCC several months ago and just got a report back saying there was nothing they could do. Now doesn't that suck? LOL

They call at dinnertime, on my DO NOT CALL phone. When I started to tell them that it as a DNC number, the lady (obviously black) just hung up on me.

Not only do they find their way past (or totally ignore) the federal Do Not Call registry, they want me to trust them with my private information, yet they won't even give me a correct number to call back on. Crooked to say the least!

Dirt ball credit reduction services, constant do not call violator, no option to remove from list. These common thieves use different names and bogus numbers to hide behind. The common thieves behind these bogus businesses are: Marvin J Cox, James A Shoenholz, Jason Eyer, Kelly Lonas and others. The bogus businesses are: Versa Debt, Americare Software, Assured Warranties, Debtsafe, Debtworks, Personal data Systems, UV Services, VP Marketing Inc and others.

Track their connections through the GA Corporate website:
http://corp.sos.state.ga.us/corp/soskb/CSearch.asp

File complaints through your local law enforcement and your States Attorney Generals office as well as the OAG in GA. You can also file complaints with the FTC and FCC. They commit wire fraud on a regular basis and will relentlessly badger you for your credit card number. They are common thieves and all those that work, associate or assist them are just as guilty.

Repeat Offender robocaller. "Last Chance to lower your interest rates, press 1 for more or press 2 to be removed from our call list." I've gotten this call more than once and pressed "2" each time. They continue to call and apparently refuse to honor their own offer, not to mention they ignore the National Do Not Call Registry.

Same as other entries... "do not be alarmed..." "press one", etc. Very rude girl who took a nasty attitude with me (is this a job requirement?). I asked "What is the purpose of this call?" She said "To get lower interest rates on your account" I asked "Which account does this refer to?" She said "Major Visa & Mastercard" I asked her to reiterate this so I could understand, but she definitely said (VAGUE, NON-SPECIFIC) "major" Visa & Mastercard. Hmph. So I said "So basically you are expecting me to give you account numbers over the phone so your company can run their scam?" and she got very cross with me, saying that if I wasn't interested, she wouldn't waste my time and I shouldn't waste hers.
I asked for the name of the company, got the very sketchy, non-specific name "Credit Services", asked her where they were based and she said "Atlanta, Georgia" (though the caller ID clearly states Florida...?).
I asked her to remove my number from the list and warned if I was called again I would file charges. She and her nasty attitude stated that she would put me down as "declined offer" or some such thing but I won't hold my breath not to be called again. I am also on DNC list.
In my opinion, this is definitely a phishing scam, and we should all continue to report the phone number(s) and shut them down. DO NOT GIVE THEM, OR ANY OTHER COMPANY, INFO ABOUT YOUR CREDIT CARDS OVER THE PHONE!!! (unless you are ordering something from a trusted company)

The message states to press 1 to receive the lower rates on my credit card. I do not have a credit card. I pressed 1 to ask them to take me off their calling list. I am on the do not call list.

The lady that answered, hung up in my face. I tried to call back, but it states the # is disconnected.

I was so angry. All I said to the lady when she answered was "yes, I do not have a credit card and I would like for you to take my # off your calling list and the rudly hung up without saying a word."

Just received a call from this number (850-626-1361) at our home. It was an automated system at first, then you press a number to speak to a person, so my wife did. The girl said her name was "Shequana" or some such ghetto crap name. Couldn't really understand her. My wife informed her that we were on the DNC List and would like to please have them remove us from their list and the girl asked my wife for our number. My wife informed her that they called us and they should have our number. The girl said that it was an automated system and she couldn't remove it. My wife inquired about the name of the company and at first she refused to give my wife any info, then she finally said the company name was "Credit Services". When my wife once again stated that we're on the DNC list and to please remove us, the girl got very rude and told my wife "Next time, don't press 1, press 2 and it'll opt you out!" and then she hung up on my wife. Reporting this call directly to the FTC. This crap needs to stop.

They've called us several times. Recorded voice says 'don't be alarmed.....
We're on Do not call list, they call us anyway.

If you call this number back there is a message that says "We are sorry but you have reached a number that has been disconnected" I am wondering how is it that they do that!

I was told (automated voice) that this was my last chance to lower my interest rate and to press 1 as "account managers" were standing by. As I pay interest on only my mortgage I know this is A PHISHING ATTEMPT. DO NOT DEAL WITH THEM AT ALL!
I dont think so

Have no idea who this is. I keep getting calls that say "CALL CENTER, FL" on Caller ID but they never leave a message and I report them all.
