Just returned from vacation and over a four day period received 12 calls (7 in 1 day). I presume this is Discover as others have stated. They have also previously called 27 times on number 866-290-3289 and 16 times on 866-290-4957. I have these numbers blocked on my caller ID but they never give up. We have two Discover accounts and have always paid the full amount on time, so these are just annoying telemarketing calls. They are antagonizing their best customers to the point that people will be cancelling their accounts.

For the past 2 weeks calls from this number 866-290-3289 start from 8:30am-10:30pm. When I answer the phone, no one says anything at first; but by the second time I say a greeting, someone will say that they are calling from Discover Card and they would like to speak to (they ask by name). I immediately hang up because I feel like this is a scam.

Well, now the calls are coming to my cell phone. I returned a call and someone by the name of "Ford" answered stating that I had reached Discover Card. So, I asked him where he was located and he said the Philippines. I told him that I was just returning the call because someone keeps calling me from the # 866-290-3289 and he again stated that was Discover Card where he is located. He told me that he would no longer be able to talk to me without me giving him my phone number, account number, pin number and social security number. So, out of curiosity, I asked to speak to a manager or his supervisor, he stated that I would have to hang up and call that number back in order to speak to a supervisor. However, when I told him that I was contacting the FBI/SECRET SERVICE/HOMELAND SECURITY, etc., he quickly asked me to hold on for a supervisor. Unfortunately, the person, Robert Jones, who stated that he was a supervisor was no better off. He too stated that he was with Discover Card in the Philippines and that in order to assist me, he would need the phone # from which I was calling, my SSN, account# and pin#; otherwise, without that information, he could no longer stay on the phone. And he hung up.

I contacted Discover Card at 1-800-347-2683 and spoke to Vicky in Security. I explained to her about the calls and I gave her the number. She told me that Discover Card does not have any offices overseas or anywhere outside of the US. In addition, she filed a complaint to have that number checked out via Discover to find out where those calls are coming from . PLEASE DO NOT OFFER YOUR NAME OR ANY INFORMATION TO THESE CALLERS.

I presume this is Discover Card as the majority of these comments state. I have an account with them and they have been pests in the past. Over the past week I have received 12 of these calls. I blocked them on my Caller ID and when they call, they hear a message that this party will not take their calls. Still, they continue to ring sometimes three times in one day. What does it take to get the message across to them?

It is from Discover Card. They call and hang up very often. Automated calling system, asked to be removed, but Discover Card just keeps calling and hanging up.

Absolutely ridiculous how many times I get calls from this credit card with them trying to sell me their product. Enough already.

When I picked up the phone there was nothing. I am getting more and more of these calls and I am very angry about it.
