***i DO NOT have an American Express card!!!***
so, i called the number to find out why i rcvd the call and inform them i don't have a card - - - when their "represntative" finally answered my call ... he did not speak english very well and continued asking me for my account number after i repeatedly told him I DO NOT HAVE AN AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD ... i told him i want to know where they got my phone number and why i would rcv the call if i am not a card holder - - - HE ASKED ME FOR MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER so he could "look up" my account number - - - i told him i would not give him my ssn and at that time, he became *very* belligerent and told me to disregard the call - - - i told him i would not disregard the call, i wanted answers and i wanted to speak with his supervisor...he took my phone number so he could "look up any information attached to my phone number" and he would have his supervisor call me back...ok - SURE!
please, PLEASE, do not fall for this scam and DO NOT give these *EVIL* people your account number, personal information and certainly not your ssn!!!
