OFFENDER: DENIS KALTCHEV (FORMER OLYMPIC BUL SWIMMER) CASE # 12A003894 OFFENSE: FRAUD – THEFT Denislav Kaltchev is currently listed in the USA Swimming registration database with a note saying that the National Headquarters clearance is needed for him to re-register with USA Swimming. In other words, he will not be allowed to re-register anywhere in the USA, without going through the Colorado Springs office of USA Swimming. It appears that USA Swimming is aware of these (or other) allegations, and has flagged his membership, if and when he tries to rejoin USA Swimming.

Checked this site, as I received a call on my cellphone which I left unanswered from this number.
In regards to SmartLady's comment - Americans live in a free country, where we are free to speak all sorts of languages. I suspect you meant that she was not a native English speaker, which is a very different statement.

It was a missed call. I called back and heard a recorded voice inviting me to op-out of future offers if I wanted to. I didn't wait around. I hung up and set my phone to filter that number.

Missed call left no voice mail, called them back, the operator just asked for an extention (forgien voice), I asked who they where and how they got my number, she said hold, and transfered my call some where, with no answer to my question. so I hung up. put them on call reject in my phone.

I received a call claiming to be from Card Services. I had a hard time understanding. The lady was NOT an American! She claimed that she could lower my interest rate to 6% if my combined debt was over $3,500. Then, she wanted my cc information. I told her that I was not comfortable giving out that information. I hung up. Based on the advice of Eric, I called the number back and pressed 1 to have my number removed from their database. If we're on a DO NOT CALL registry, we shouldn't have to ask them to remove our number!

Thought the FTC had finally nailed these guys as I haven't received a call about my credit card debt in a couple of months. Guess I was wrong. Must have been moving their base of operations before the FTC could home in. There's got to be a way for the FTC to track them down again.

Eric, how much trust do you think we should place in any ''opt out'' instructions which come from a scammer violating federal and state laws every single time it calls? Just like when you reply to a spam email, those directed keypresses only signal a ''live one'' which is more likely to respond to yet more trashy calls.

This is a company that offers reduced interest rates on your Credit Card account(s). Just call tthe number back and press 1 to have your number removed from their database. Allow up to 72 hours for your number to be removed. (according to their recording)

Gotten this prerecorded message before. Someone looking to help you with an "important message" about your "Credit card" (no issuing bank, never specifies Visa/MC/Disc, etc,) and it's a total scam. I've blocked them in the past, but it looks like "Heather" and crew are now calling from a california cell phone to try to scam more people with some "reduced rate" on a credit card I know I don't own (I only have debit cards,) which is just them seeking your cc # to defraud you.

I have been getting calls from this and various other numbers and all say either "Hello this is Amy" or just this is your Account Services. Sometimes they say it is my last chance and others will say Congratulations you may be eligible. I have told some to take me off their call lists and they hang up. If I ask for a supervisor, they hang up.

How do I report them for harrassment?

It was a computer message from card services talking about getting a better rate, etc. Total sales scam.

Tired: The Telephone Consumer Protection Act allows sales callers a daily 13 hour window beginning at 08:00 in your time zone. Only your state law or a notice revoking call permission might overcome this. That said, the credit reprice scam calls are illegal at all times since they are always prerecorded and never invited, to say nothing of peddling a fraudulent service.

Meadow: Back in November you got your wish regarding a similar scam shop in Atlanta. It's true that enforcement actions are often frustrated by cheap VOIP service and Caller ID spoofing, which were not available as tools of concealment to phone scammers when the DNC program was established. However, the complaints do count and the FTC has relied on them to help stamp out several ''Rachels'' since late 2009. If you give up filing reports, it's effectively the same as condoning the illegal behavior.

It's car services-- they just keep hijacking numbers and call my cell phone, which is on the DO NOT CALL registry. I'd really like this company to be nailed for violating the registry rules. I get at least 3 calls a day, often from different numbers, which I then have to block, and they just keep calling, even if you talk to a live person, they will not stop calling, even if you report each and every number and incident to the government DO NOT CALL registry, they just find a different number and keep calling.

Received call on mobile; recorded message and DEFINITELY a phishing call; message claimed I'm eligible for some reduced APR on my 'credit card' at 'your bank' (never specifies a card or bank); recording advised I should consider this my final notice and press to talk to someone.

I received a call from this number at WORK of all places. I DO NOT give my WORK # to my creditors. Anyway, they claimed to be from Credit Card Services, and told me they represent BofA, Chase, Wells Fargo, and Other National banks. I highly doubt that all these major competitors would utilize the same service. Anyway, I quickly told the Indian lady that I was very suspicious of her call, asked why she was calling me at work, the like. She just kept telling me she wanted to reduce the interest rate on my credit card, but could not tell me with which bank. Such a PHISHING SCAM! I hung up. No thanks.

They said that they were able to lower my credit card interest rate to 6% and started asking for personal information. I knew right away that it was a scam as the pre-recorded message sent me to an indian-esque accented man. I told him that I thought this was a scam and that he was full of shit after he said he did not work for a bank. He claimed to work for "Credit Card Services".

Watch out folks, this is very blatantly a scam. He called my cell phone (Los Angeles number).

I have received a call from this number both at my home and on my cell. The first time, I asked them where they were calling from and they hung up. The second time, I asked them who they thought they had called and they hung up. Obviously a scam!!
