Even though the original caller didn't post a name, at least lots of people helped to figure out who they were. So I guess it was useful.

How on earth could anyone know who called if you put it in the data base? LOL. If you don't have it, you shouldn't post it.

This is Discover Card calling card holders to sell them additional services. They never leave a message. I called their number and was connected to there Arizona Call Center. An account rep named Matt wanted my account info before putting my number on their do not call list. I refused and told him that he has the name and phone number and to make sure it is removed or I would report them. We will see!
They have been calling a lot. Never leaves a message. Called them back, was Discover card offering blah,blah,blah,blah,**#*!%* blah.
no name just number............no one there..........called back, it was Discover Card..........I will close my Discover account...............this is nonsense.
Been calling repeatedly, finally answered, and said my name and asked if this was me. although i shouldn't have I answered yes and they hung up. I have discover, so hopefully that's who it was. Gov't opt out list doesn't count if you are a customer of the company.
Calling over and over and over. No message.
Called tonite for the first time, asked for my husband, when I asked who was calling she said she would call back when he was available. I never said he wasn't available I just asked who it was. Weirdos.
If you are signed up with the "National Do Not Call Registry" just report these unwanted calls to them. This is simple to do by phone or by e-mail, and I think the violaters are subject to fines, especially if a number of people complain. I reported several today.
They called yesterday, I didn't answer since it was an 800#. They left no msg.
888-322-2785 (TOLL FREE CALL) calls about twice a day. I never pick up for anything on the caller ID that reads solely "Unknown Number" "Private Number" and lists no number or "Toll Free Call" They've been calling for about a month. Consensus seems its Discover card. Question, does everyone here, have Discover card? Because I don't and from what I'm reading, it seems they are targeting existing members in order to push some additional package. If that's the case, I wonder how I got lumped in?
I just received a call from this number and a man asked for my husband. When I told him that my husband was unavailable, he said "ok, thank you". I asked who was calling and he said "John Preger" and he hung up. I called back the number and got a recording that said "this is Discover Card. We recently tried to contact you in regard to a service we are offering. If you would like to speak to an account manager, please stay on the line. Otherwise, please continue to use and enjoy your Discover card, good-bye".
I just called Discover about this number. gave them the 888-322-2785 said they called up to 5 times day and as late as 9:30 pm that they don't say anything and then they hang up. when they do talk they want you to buy fraud protection. and that we can not understand them sounds like they are from another country. so people are hanging up because they are afraid that it is a scam. that someone just wants the credit card number and that alot of people are very upset over this harassment. told her to take my name and number off there list. she said she would and she was forwarding everything I told her to Discover headquarters. I hope this will get them off everyones back
called number back said it was Discover card selling a product / service
After I blocked this #, if this is Discover, I later got a call on 8/21
This is Discover trying to sell something. I learned that from this site. I have a Discover card, so I logged onto their cardholders site, found a customer service e-mail address, and wrote them to tell them to stop calling me. In less than three hours, I received a reply saying my phone number would be removed from their marketing lists.
I would like to find out how to block calls from specific numbers.
recieved calls every day for the past week!

this number called at 8:50 pm on the 17th of August we will not answer a number that we don't know who it's from if they don't want to tell us who they are we don't want to speak to them.
A tremendous amount of calls from this number. They will not leave a message and I refuse to answer unless identity is provided on caller ID.
This number is from DISCOVER CARD. If you have a DISCOVER CARD, they are trying to sell you that overpriced "insurance" aka "fraud protection". DO NOT BUY! You can do better by putting the month cost into a bank account. Your liability on your card is already ZERO DOLLARS, so why would you buy more coverage? SCAM-A-RONI.
I am being tormented by these calls...they say nothing when they call. I do not have a Discover card and because of this annoyance, I never will.
My wife got this call this morning from 888-322-2785
the woman on the other end said to her that there has been a lot of theft in this area and she said she was calling on behalf of DISCOVER card, when my wife told her she is not interested in what ever s you are selling, just before the hang up she said in a nasty tone, some people are dumb,i was hoping she would call again so i could sail into her.
I called this number today after repeated calls to my phone number and it IS Discover Card wanting to tell me about all of their features. The receptionist was very nice and asked if I wanted to be taken off of the call list and of course I said yes! I called at 8:30am CST. Maybe they are more friendly in the mornings!!
They called again about 5-10 minutes after the first but I didn't answer.
I'm so glad I didn't answer this call! Is there no way to make them stop?
they call all the time and never leave messages, so i called the number - it's a discover card "special offer." (i am a cardholder.) i called them back and was directed to a customer representative in Arizona. i asked her to have my name removed from the calling list - and she said she'd take care of it, although i may still receive a few calls before my name is removed. we'll see what happens...
called 7 times today and 5 yesterday
888.322.2785... at least one call a week. I never answer. You'd think they'd learn by now.
I've been receiving 888-322-2785 multiple times a day for over a month. No message is left. Sometimes there is a blank space on tape. I never answer.
This number calls virtually every day, sometimes two or three times. It rings once or twice and hangs up. If answered there is dead silence and then disconnect.
3 4 5 times a day every day for a long time now
Now asks for the registered telephone user.
Caller ID says '1-888-322-2785 800 Service'. If we do answer no one is there. Sometimes someone will be on the other end asking for someone I never heard of. Been getting these calls for 3 months.
They didn't leave a message. When I called back, I got a recording saying that it was Discover Card, calling with an offer.
This number has been calling for days. We usually just let it ring and they never leave a message. Today, my wife answered. Someone with a heavy foreign accent asked for me and she said, "he's not available." They said they'd call back. She said, "wait, who's calling." They said, "Discover." Very suspicious since DiscoverCard usually identifies themselves first when they call - you don't have to ask.
Rang four times. I didn't answer. Gave number but name not provided.
I get these calls too - and I block the number - dial *60 on your phone to do the same. No more calls!!
9:01 July 10
rings many times, pick up,silence
Thanks, John G., Dan and JLB for letting us all know this caller is from the Discover Card
Just call the number on the back of the Discover Card (which is the Delaware main office), go through the menu and wait to speak to a customer representative. Ask them to take off all phone and mail solicitations. It will take up to 30 days for all solicitations to stop.
Called while we were out - # showed on caller ID with "Not Provided" as the caller.
No message left.
Reported to www.donotcall.gov - we are on the national do not call list.
Out of the last 25 calls to my house this number called 5 times. That is from June 26 to June 30. Never leaves a message. I have a do not call #/
888-322-2785 just keeps calling. I put them on the "DoNotCall" list on 4-6-07 and everytime they called since then, but they just keep calling.
this number is for discover card
j mitchell Jun 29th, 2007
I get calls from this number every day, 2-3 times per day. I never answer and they never leave a message. Caller ID reads Toll Free.
They called and I let my four-year-old daughter talk to them. She was a bit shy at first, so I told her it was her grandma and grandpa. That made her happy, but when they didn't say anything, she handed me the phone and went back to reading War & Peace.
888-322-2785 calls everyday at least 2 - 3 times daily
I just called the number 888-322-2785 and got throught to a customer service rep from discover and ask to be taken off there call list.He processed my request immediatly
danfrommass Jun 26th, 2007
Repeated calls from this number. I don't answere from unknown callers either. Today, caller finally asked for me by my legal name "is so & so there" and hung up. Glad to find this site and what to do. Thanks for being here ya'll!
After reading everyones messages in here, I called this number back and told her I was to betaken off the list immediately. She went thru the motions like she does it all day long. She wanted to read some disclosure and I hung up.
I have been on the govt DoNotCall list for over a year and I still get calls....
Never leaves a message, calls 3, 4, 5 times a day.
Report ANY number that that calls your house and does this to WWW.DONOTCALL.GOV The calls stop. I have reported about 10 numbers and about to report this one. The calls have always stopped after I report them.
Unwanted call. ask they stop calling. call two three times per week. stop answering.
wouldn't say what he wanted only wanted to talk to my husband whom I told was not here. Refused to leave any message or identify himself or the company he was calling in behalf of.
Calling daily. When I called back I heard a recording for "Discover Credit Cards. They asked for my account # to take me off their mailing list. DID NOT provide to them. Called the Discover card # on the back of my card and verified this is NOT one of their #s. Some kind of scam. Beware!
call comes up as "Toll Free Call", I don't answer these, no messages on machine, every day, even weekends, doesn't matter the time. They just need to stop
Same problem Rings no one Home. Can we please report this number to someone to stop it?
We recently moved and we started receiving calls from TOLL FREE 888-322-2785 as soon we had our phone service turned on. We have been in our home for 5 months and we get at least 2 calls a day!!!
They are trying to sign you up for any of their products...payment protection plan.
Receive calls from this number often, called back and it is Discover Card.
Well, we got 4 calls on a Saturday morning, which has finally prompted me to do something and have been getting calls for a month or so.
We called customer service at discover as others have suggested and asked them to add us to their "do not call" list. They seemed to acknowledge it could be them calling and they put us on the list. We'll see if the calls stop and I will repost to let you know.
Just call the number (it is Discover) back and ask to be taken off their call list!
Automated calling equip calls a bunch of numbers at once and when one answers it hangs up on the other numbers. Keeps the person calling from having idle time.
Has called many times. Several times on many days and evenings. Including weekends. Caller ID gives number + Tollfree Number. Never leaves message.
I spoke with Discover and the representative took me off of the list of automated calling, and put me on this list. I get one a day. The thing to remember is that Citigroup is behind this, they are a horrible, aggressive organization that has changed the face of the credit card business..for the worse.
Picked up phone & woman id'd self as from Discover Card. I said immediately I didn't want anything and to please remove us from their call list. I put phone back on handset. After few seconds, I picked up phone to make a call and she was still talking!!!!!
I called the number back after hitting *67 on my phone, and a mechanical voice said it was Discover Card with a new offer.
After receiving several calls from this number with no ID and no msg left I answered just to see who it was.
A female answered saying she was a rep for Discover Card and began pushing a new service I neither needed or wanted; very persistant.
Harley Quinn Apr 24th, 2007
when I call back it says it's Discover Card. I can only imagine they are trying to sell something. Very Annoying

CLASS ACTION Apr 23rd, 2007
About 9:30 a.m. I makes me mad that even with caller id, the identity is not provided.
It's from Discovery card.
gary stuart Apr 20th, 2007
888-322-2785 Calls does not leave messages. No answer when I return call.
If this is Discover Cards "Fraud Protection" plan, then is truly is a fraud, for what you get!
Most of the services offered on the site are typically free anyway. For example, one free credit check report. Well, we are all entitled to one free credit report, per year.
I have had more trouble with this so called, "Fraud Protection" plan. Somehow, it was automatically charged to my discover account and it has been an ordeal, trying to get them to take it off. The service guy was extremely rude. And the last few times I have called, the recorder directs you to several different area...anyway after someone finally did pick up...they hung up instantly...more than once!
Attorney's are the next step. I don't have time for the games!
Perhaps there maybe a Class Action Lawsuit brewing...!
I don't mean to sound sue happy but this is rediculous!
amyjofrank Apr 16th, 2007
888-322-2785 called several times over the last month. Answer call and nothing but silence. From reading messages on this website it is call from Discover. I have put them on donotcall list but since I have their card it doesn't do any good.
They call too early in the a.m. & I do not answer unknown caller or anything similar to that.
I'm reporting it to www.donotcall.gov each time they call, if all of us do that maybe they will leave us alone
They call and an Indian or Paki says, "Can I hepp you?"
It is DISCOVER, the credit card company, calling to tell you about their latest credit card gimmick, like Fraud Protection.
These people always call for my mother when she's at work! When I tell them she's at work, they either ask what would be a better time to call or hang up on me! Despite the fact that they ask what a better time would be to call-- they never call when she's home! It's starting to become harassment and if I can find out what the company is, I will definitely report them to the government (donotcall.gov).
don't answer - it is an automated phone dialer - totally ignorant people on the other end
2 x today and at least once a day for the last few days. Shows "unknown name."
Little Girl Mar 21st, 2007
This number is making my whole family crazy! Who can I report them to? It comes up unknown or unavailable OR just now 'TOLLFREE NUMBER'!! They hung up on the answering machine. . . There is NO way I'm calling them to GIVE them my name and information to 'opt out'!!
I called the number back. It IS Discover card, and they want to sell me something. GO AWAY PEOPLE!!
I hope this helps.
If i reported all the calls I got from this number that box above would double in size! I was receiving these calls 2,3, 4 times a day, I work nights and I sleep days, so they wake me up more often than I can say. I often ignored them, or answered, yelled and then tried to go back to sleep, aggravated, and annoyed. I finally called the number back and asked to be taken off the registry. They did say it was an offer of card security as some of you have said. They seemed to get more persistent when there was national attention of a recent scam. They, well this one peoson that answered said he was very sorry I had been bothered and that he had placed the request for my name to be taken off the call registry. So far so good. I looked up the number again when a friend was saying she was receiving the calls too and found this site. I encourage you to, with that last string of patience you might have saved, call and ask to be removed from the registry. It seems to have worked for me and it was a little rewarding to ahve someone say "I'm sorry", even if it only in their script to do so. Hope you all are less harassed soon!!! I'm going to get some rest!
Calls are hang-ups. Never leave any message.
Been receiving call from this number, never leaving any message - and they continually call back.
have called 3 days in row, doesnt leave message hangs up
They called today 3 times in ten mins. I answered on the 3rd call, the caller asked for my husband, said no message, it was just a "courtesy call." I'm sure it's linked to his Discover card.
3 TIMES IN TEN MINS!!!
888-322-2785 Rings 2 times at all hours & several times a day. This problem has been going on for months.
they call over and over but no message.
"May I speak to ******?"
I say nothing.
They hang up.
Called us be no one there, hangs up.
leannie2002 Feb 04th, 2007
Called two times on 02/02/2007. The second time could not even understand the womans garble. I did catch Discover and insisted on sending me something. I said NO & hung up
