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.
