I never answer the telephone anymore until the 7th Ring. I just assume if the phone rings six or less times it is just another Damn Robocall!

I have been receiving calls from this number daily for several months now. It is a credit scam! It starts as an automated call asking "if you would like to lower your credit card rate"? You are given several options so I pressed to speak to an agent to get as much info as possible. A young english speaking girl answered the phone and asked if I was paying higher than 10% on my credit card. I told her no and she hung up. In hindsight I wish I had said yes so I could get some info to try to find out what company this is. The face that she hung up without telling me that she couldn't help me leads me to believe that is a scam. There's a option that you can press to have your name removed but trust me that does not work; I did that months ago. The best thing to do is DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFO or engage them in any way. They are very rude and will curse and tell you they will continue to call. This is another clue that this is not a real company. Here's what you should do:

Call the FCC at 1-888-225-5322 and file a complaint. They will ask you a series of questions and open up an investigation. Make sure you have a pen & paper handy because they will give you a complaint confirmation number.

File a complaint with the FTC @ WWW.FTC.gov. You can call them at 1-877-382-4357 but they will redirect you to their web site.

Call your State's Attorney General and file a complaint.

If you're on the DO NOT CALL LIST and you have asked them to remove your name and not call & they continue you can collect up to $1500 for each time they call. THIS IS WHY WHEN YOU ASK THEM TO TAKE YOU OFF THE LIST THE IMMEDIATELY HANG UP.

There have been a lot of complaints thus far! Hopefully, the government is close to closing in on them. My guess is that they will continue to change phone numbers so keep a pad of paper & pen near your phone.

Good luck!

Message offered to lower interest rate on card. Do not have a card, and our phone number is on DNC Registry.
Notify the local consumer protection branch of Your Attorney General's Office.
Robo callers are out of control.
Many calls are 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., and some hospital workers, and others who work Night Shift are attempting to get sleep, after completing their shifts.
Someone needs to stop these scammers' robo calls.

I'm being bombarded this afternoon by these junksters! NEWT 2012 rang, and I did not answer; the phone rang 4 times and then stopped. This "Desjardins S" showed up a few seconds ago, and the phone rang off the hook for over 6 rings.

As I have stated before, I think this lunatic neighbor of mine (who has tried to poison my pets, vandalized my property, and tried to have me arrested for making threats when I told him in 2000 that I was writing a murder mystery book), likes to "push" my number to these robo-call centers. The best defense with him around is to keep one's doors and windows locked, and not to acknowledge him if he is outdoors. The best defense against these calls is Caller ID, and then not to pick up the phone.

I have received these calls about 5 times a month. I press the number indicated by the recording for an associate to sign me up for a credit card. When they ask if I want to set up an account, I tell them to take me off their call list. Every time I begin the sentence, they hang up on me! I used to press the number supposed to let them know to take me off the call list but figured out it causes more calls. We have 4 cells and they call only 2 of those. It is the same message from several numbers saying my cc is going to expire and I need to press 1 to talk to an operator or whatever. When they answer, the person has a foreign accent that is difficult to understand. All 4 of our cells are on the government do not call list. I have reported them many times. It is very frustrating.

They wanted my social security number and my birth date. These are criminals. Nothing can be done about them because they own somebody highly placed in Washington. After the first Tuesday in November 2012 perhaps they will be prosecuted.

Caller ID said "UNAVAILABLE". This was the usual "Card Services" credit card scam. The caller claimed to work for the "Qualification Department for Visa and MasterCard". He hung up when I asked for his company's address.

.....Months of calls from 877-298-8855......
First - make sure you are on list at www.donotcall.gov
Second - File complaint with www.donotcall.gov
Third - Call the FCC at 1-888-225-5322 and make a complaint
Fourth - Call the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-382-4357 and make complaint
Fifth - Call the Attorney General of the state you live in and make complaint.

I did all these. They write all the information down. The more complaints made this way...the more they will pay attention and do something. So please don't just complain on here. And besides...it made me feel darn good calling in my complaint to every one of them.

I got mad at the phone call today...no way you can cuss or insult them enough to quit calling. He ended up telling me he is going to call me twice as often now.

They call her frequently, about once a week, for months now. I have repeatedly asked them to put me on the Do Not Call list, but then they just hang up.
I don't even own one single credit card, nor does my husband, so this is clearly a spam call. Every time I try and talk to them, they hang up! One time, they even swore at me before hanging up. These people are annoying!

Why do you idiots post over 9 pages of your personal problems with this company?

Seriously?

You people are dumb.

Nothing will get done unless you do the following

1. REPORT THEM TO DoNotCall.GOV under complains.

2. Write letters NOT EMAILS to your Attorney General, you know letters that require a 44 cent stamp. That way they have to act on your request.

3. Write letters NOT EMAILS to the Federal Trade Commission, you know letters that require a 44 cent stamp. That way they have to act on your request.


Writing over and over your stupid problem,

First call from these scammers. Luckily, they called in the afternoon, not late at night. From the comments below, sounds like the DNC List is not very effective. (We have been on the list for months.)

You're right, it's not legal. You prior four should take your complaints to the FTC and your attorneys general. That way you might get a human authority involved sooner, as opposed to merely adding to the passive gripe database maintained for the DNC program.

In 2010 the FTC mothballed several credit reprice scam operations based on a mass of complaints. They need your help to stomp these roaches again. Yesterday I would swear every third comment to this site concerned this issue, so clearly there is much work ahead.
