Getting Angry Feb 06th, 2010
Called everyday this week. I asked to be removed from their calling list last year, thought it worked had not been called for three months. So i again requested to be removed was told it takes 30 days for the files to be updated. Maybe I'll get another 3 months of peace. Good luck to the others who try this.
Finally got tired of this number (1-866-290-4961) calling several times a day, and answered. In my instance, it was Discover Card, trying to send me a "free" credit report for the past 7 years (from Experian, as I recall). I just cut the operator off mid-sentence, said "I'm not interested" and hung up.
When redialing 1-866-290-4961 I heard a recording that said "welcome to discover. For a customer service rep, press 1". At that point Linda came on the line and asked me for my #. I told her that I was on the no- call list, and she said she needed my # to remove me from the list. I declined. I'll report this, but I have a feeling that I'm wasting my time.

Calls everyday, usually several times a day. Generally in the evening although I often come home to find the number on my caller id.
A pre-recorded voice identified itself as some bogus company that i could not understand (tried to hear it again 4 times). It claimed I had an order that could not be completed be cause my financial institution "did not authorize the transaction" and advice me to call back (at the same number) to get the thing resolve. Funny thing is I did not ordered anything in about weeks already. All orders before that got completed already.
As awesomedogtoys said, "call them directly at 1-800-347-2683
and tell them to remove your phone # from their Robo lists." This worked for me.
These f#$%^&*@ call many times every day. I never answer. 800 Service on caller ID. We are on DoNotCall list, it doesn't work. They must be stopped. Where are our lawmakers? Oh yes, I remember, out spending our tax money.

3-4 times a day---no message---you know if it was an emergency they would leave a message
Never Ending Nov 24th, 2009
Twice in one morning! About 2 hours apart!

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.
It is Discover Card and you need to call them directly at 1-800-347-2683
and tell them to remove your phone # from their Robo lists and then I would suggest to contact the Federal and State Attorney General, the President and then your Sen. and Congress to let them know that they need to have these Companies stop these practices of harassing robo calls.
Don't call 1 866 290 4961 number that has been calling you, because they can't do a thing.

Discover Card (again!) wanting to tell us about their new Business Credit Card.
This number calls atleast three times a day and never leaves a message. If it is important enough to call, you can leave a message too.
Added to my list of blocked numbers.... why can't non-Voip providers give this service? I will never go back. This in itelf is worth my $15.95 bill each month.

I get a call from this number almost daily, but they won't leave a message. Today I picked up and a girl kept saying Hello. Finally she asked "Is this J**** P****?" I said "Speaking". She started saying Hello? Hello? I said again, "SPEAKING!"... and she hung up. Frustrated, I finally called the number back and it's Discover card trying to sell me additional services. When you call back you get a recording, however. Totally infuriating! And I believe it's illegal for them to call without an identifying name on caller ID.
I keep getting calls from this #. Called it back & it is Discover card...I do not have a Discover card. I Pressed 1 to talk to someone, but you just get dead air & no one comes on the line. How do I get these people to stop calling me when I do not have an account with them?
For the past several weeks I have received calls, always without a message. They usually call in the early evening. Today, however, they called on a Saturday at 10 am. When I called this number back, I was met with a recording indicating their attempt to call me to offer a product or service. I was given an option to talk with a representative; however, the call disconnected when I selected that option.
Hung up when I answered the call
Calls twice a day. Hangs up on third ring every time. Never leaves a message.
We get calls from this number several times a day, sometimes only seconds apart, at all hours of the day and night. This has been going on for the better part of a year now, and is getting REALLY old.
Discover Card Services.
They've called several times on a daily basis.
Never a voicemail message.
I let the answering machine pick up, but they didn't leave a message. They called at 8:47 p.m.

This is NOT Discover Card. It is Epic Star Marketing. I called my Discover Card # after asking to be removed from this call list three time and Discover said they had NO record of calling me so I called back this number and drilled the Guy into telling me what the name of his Company is. DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR INFORMATION!!!!!
I have received no less than 20 calls from this number. Usually a male caller asks for me by name in a Southern accent. I hang up since I am not interested in telemarketers. I Once asked to be removed from any list but apparently they do not oblige.
solitication call from discover card
This number shows on my Caller ID everyday. I always ignore numbers that I don't know...and if it's something "important" they can leave a message, which they don't. I sure hope this reporting this number does some good...
From another site: ..... Company is Auto Solutions out of georgia...
Telemarketer for an auto warranty scam.... they have a PRI T-1
service with a predictive Dialer which allows them to spoof their phone
number so they don't get caught by the FCC or the FTC...since May 7th:
Here are the details of these douchebags:
Car Warranty Scam:
4501 Circle 75 Parkway
Atlanta GA 30339
Credit Card Scam:
4501 Circle 75 Parkway
Atlanta GA 30339
To the best of my knowledge, their phone number is 678-238-1300
Both companies are listed with the Georgia Department of State. Here is how you can lookup their information:
You will find that the "Registered Agent" for VP Marketing is Kelly Lonas, 224 Ripple Creek Drive, Marietta GA 30060. The listed "Member/Manager" is James A. Schoenholz at the 4501 Circle 75 Parkway address.

I've answered this number in the past, it is Discover Card. They call 3 or 4 times a day. Telling them to take your name of their internal list is a waste of time, they won't do it.
I'm sick of Discover calling everyday. I finally called them back and asked them to take me off their solitation list. We will see if it works. If they don't stop within a few days, I will cancel my Discover Card and then I will make them take me off their list since I am on the National "Do not call list"
never a message, but call shows up on my ID every day
This company claims to be calling on 'behalf' of Discover Card. Well if it is Discover Card why doesn't the Caller ID say so? It is just a telemarketer who found a way around the 'No Call' regulations!
Same as everyone else--multiple calls per day, no one on the other end if I (very rarely) pick up. I just tried the Discover Privacy Preference Line" mentioned below 800-225-5202
)--let's see if that does any good.
Caller did not say anything or answer.
IT'S DISCOVER CARD WITH AN OFFER TO SAVE ME MONEY THAT I CAN'T REFUSE. I REFUSED! CALL DISCOVER'S PRIVACY PREFERENCE LINE AT 800-225-5202
. IT'S ALL AUTOMATED. I CALLED AND SET MY PRIVACY PREFERENCES TO NOT GET OFFERS FROM DISCOVER OR THEIR "FAMILY OF NETWORK MEMBERS". MINUTES LATER, I GOT ANOTHER CALL, ANSWERED and IMMEDIATELY HAD A "REPRESENTATIVE" START PITCHING A "SPECIAL OFFER". BEFORE HE FINISHED HIS INTRODUCTION WE WERE SUDDENLY DISCONNECTED (and it wasn't me that did the disconnecting). I HAVEN'T HAD A CALL FROM THEM SINCE. NOW AS SOON AS MY CARD IS PAID OFF, I'LL CLOSE THE ACCOUNT. THAT SHOULD STOP THE CALLS PERMANENTLY!
To activate Call Block or add a telephone number to the rejection list, dial *60. If you don’t know the number to be blocked, dial *60 immediately after hanging up from the call. To turn off Call Block, dial *80. Call Block cannot block calls from some cellular phones, pay phones or business lines. It also cannot block most long distance numbers.
Discover Card selling credit report monitoring service
Discover card calling NUMEROUS times a day. Trying to sell some sort of service.
Don't know that it was Discover, because the only thing they said was; "Is ____, _____ there?" To which I replied; "She's not here right now." And they asked; "When would be the best time to reach her?" To which I repied with a bogus time. The person was very rude in tone and manner.
Another number used by Discover.
This number calls several times a day for several days at a time. It is an unknown id and I have never spoken with an operator. I believe it may be Discover because I recently reopened a Discover account and now the calls. I love caller id. I only answer numbers I recognize or desire to talk with. I figure if someone wants to talk with me they will leave a message. I usually ignore these calls but recently answere by unhooking the phone until they hangup. It does not seem to discourage them. I have a fart machine and sometimes play it into the phone. I am trying to screw up the courage to answer and at the same time activate the fart machine. I will ask them to hold a minute and then yell for toilet paper until they hangup. Currently that seems like a silly waste of my energy but I like the idea.
Guy said he was from Discover Card and was sending me a copy of my credit report with 7 years of history, he mumbled alot and cleared his throat alot, then he said it would cost $xx.xx per month and I said I'm not interested in anything that is going to cost me money so he said "you are making a smart decision" and hung up.
This number calls several times a day, every day and they never leave a message. I have just started answering the phone to stop the ringing and leaving the phone on until they decide to hang up.
answered call from 866-290-4961 and it was Discover Card with an offer regarding payment protection plan. Stated that it's a service offered in case you ever become disabled from work or have serious health issues and are unable to make your payments. I didn't give them a chance to go over pricing and all of that. Actually didn't want to talk with me/couldn't talk with me b/c husband is the "account holder", but b/c they call 50-blue-million times a week I insisted on knowing what this product/service that they were offering was!
Has called several times lately. We haven't asnwered and don't intend to.
This number, 866-290-4961, has a caller id 800 service. They need to be stopped because they've been harassing our families and causing us stress by constantly disturbing our peace and quiet. This is very sad because we can no longer answer the phone that we paid for through Comcast. Our phone line should be private and is strictly for families and friends. The 866-290-4961 number has been calling us about twice a day for over eight months now. It is certainly a case of harassment. They don't leave messages and don't answer when I pick up the receiver. Please advise. Thank you.
I called the number back and got a recorded message about how Discover Card had tried to contact me about a product or servive they are offering that I might be interested in. I'M NOT!
Interesting that this # is Discover Card. They have been calling me at least once a day but mostly 2-3 times a day for over 3 months now. Enough already!!!!
theyre taking over our phones man, i know it. i can feel them coming through. theres some wierd shit going in this country man. dont trust no one
Said they were Discover and were going to send me a free copy of my credit report ...and hung up mid sentence
I've been receiving calls from this number several times a day for more than a week. It's mostly just annoying.
I've never answered the phone and no message was ever left.
My daughter unknowingly answered the phone last night..they asked and she said she wasn't me. She couldn't undersrtand what they said next, so she just hung up, not knowing who she was talking to. You'd think that would have been enough for them not to call here again--no such luck.
I think I'll have my smartmouthed teenager answer it next time.
We are on the 'Do Not Call' list, but unfortunately, I do have a Discover card and am really starting to regret ever getting one, as they seem to be some pretty heavy telemarketers.
I get calls everyday atleast two times a day. Don't leave any message.
The # was for Discover Business Card, And they were trying to push their card and products on us.
Date is January 7th, 2008 for this call at 10:17 AM. Forgot to mention it in my comment.
I am on Do Not Call List. This number on caller ID off and on various times for past 2 weeks. Shows: Toll Free, then 1-866-290-4961 at 10:17 AM today. Left one garbled word on my answering machine, sounded like "coy or poy".
Claim to be "Discover Card" and trying to sell additional security services for $12.?? a month, includes credit reports ... I hang up when he said "I need to verify some information ... you address ...
I get 3 or more calls a day from this number, no message, never any messages, just hang ups, sometimes they manage to get a busy signal and my machine records that until they hang up....I am on the DO NOT CALL list and will be reporting the next call and every call after that
Called 12/10 at 5:49 pm, 12/7 at 7:00 pm, 12/5 at 5:01 pm, 12/3 at 5:51 pm, 12/01 at 5:51 pm
Answer and phone is silent.

discover card-they call 5 times a day!!
It's discover, but they hang up whenever I answer.
answered call today and said they were from Discover Card, wanting to mail some information about protection benefits plan.
I recieved a call from this number at least 4 times a week. Sometimes twice a day. At supper, in the morning and night.
NExt time they call, run this Telemarketing Counter-Script on them!!! http://www.xs4all.nl/~egbg/counterscript.html

This numbrr also calls and asks for my husband. They will not say who is calling. We also are on the "DO NOT CALL REGISTER". As far as I am concerned that register is a joke. We do have a discover card, but it is in both our names. I usually say if you are trying to sell something, you must realize most people do work for a living. No he is not home!!! And I hange up.
This number calls everyday and asks for my husband by name. They do not leave a message if no one is home and won't leave a message with me for him. We do have a Discover card, so it may be in regard to that. We are on the do not call registry.
Discover Card offering cardholders add'l service -in particular identity theft protection. Very polite Cust. Svc. I suggest decline the offer and request removal from call list, they graciously take care of it in less then a minute.
Call from Discover Card about Identity Theft Protection. Calls 3-4 times a day. I called them back and asked to be removed from their list, they asked for my number, name and address and said it takes 8-10 weeks to be completely removed but there may be other lists I am currently on through Discover that this will not remove me from.
Have received calls from this number at least once a day for the past week. They always ask for my husband by name. I tell them he's unavailable and they say they will call back. They will not speak to me. Today they asked for a time to call back when my husband would be available. I told them I didn't know. We will not be answering calls from this number in the future. If they can't talk to me, or at least identify themselves, then they don't need to speak to my husband either.
I've gotten calls from this number for over a week on my home phone. They leave no message. They call about the same time every day, so I'm pretty sure it's an automated type thing. What happened to the do not call registry?
ID unavailable, No Message, No Idea... If they can't leave a message then I'm pretty sure I don't care too much about whatever they would have had to say.
called the # back and got a recorded msg saying that they recently tried to contact me in regards to a product or srvc that might interest us and if we wanted to stay on the line they would connect us to the next available agent. We hung up. They have called us several times.
Caller ID looked like some kind of telemarketing, so I remained silent after picking up the phone.
they hung up

This # was for Discover Business Card and they were trying to push their card on us.

This number calls us all the time asking for our president and they harass us until they hang up or we hang up on them. Sometimes they hang up right when we pick up the phone. This occurs several times a day.
