I've read tons (not all) of the comments. Wish you all the best. I take a different approach. I answer, press "1" or whatever, and talk to them. TIME IS MONEY - it's an attempt at a scam, I am retired and bored, I write like I talk like I walk - which is to say I wander. I don't get mad, I get even by wasting their time, preventing them from using their time to scam someone else. Hey - I lie. If it's auto warrantee, tell them all I have is a '49 Ford. If it's lower interest on credit card, tell them I have no credit cards because my kids declared me incompentent in court. Never give them anything of value. I have fun with it. I give a street address 1500+ miles away and 50 years old combined with current city & state. Use my father's first name (been dead for 30 years) and mispell my last name or use last name of old girlfriend. Ask them to mail me information which I never get since using bogus address. I'm a simple man. I try to be good and nice to good and nice people. I try to screw more with people who are screwing with me. I waste more of their time by never getting upset or swearing. I have the time and it's more fun than shovelling the 8' high snowdrifts in my yard or the 4' ones in the driveway. It works for me, best wishes to you if you don't have the time & patience to mess with them like I do.

Getting those nasty phone calls. Read Tom's message here and called Consumer Law Group 800.814.6756. Woman there said they used Personal Data Systems as an "enrollment" vehicle. Would not give me much more info, or exactly what the relatoinship between companies was, but when I asked for "real" # for PDS she gave me 877.680.1150. I asked for # for her corp office and got 561.886.1150 telephone answer service woman who asked me "which company I wanted" and if I was a client or vendor. I said a potential client of Consumer Law Group and got transferred to another woman who answered "corporate office." Asked for exec contact, like sales manager, and she said out of office for holidays. Asked name - would not give. Asked where he was - she would not give. Asked where she was and she said in Boca Raton FL.

877.680.1150 yielded answering recording. Plugged it into this website and looks like it is # for VersaDebt. site says, "Versadebt calls from 12 other numbers: 239-213-1290 678-238-1300 442-088-725981 207-490-5276 207-449-0887 208-844-7368 561-793-8708 954-733-7981 442-074-000080 208-816-5880 561-482-7092 305-595-9680."

Some unfortunate woman complained on that site that Versadebt had charged $999.00 on her card to lower interest on her credit cards, and refused to refund it. She writes, "I got a packet in the mail I filled it out and followed the instructions. you did not do anyhing that I hadn't already done myself."

Please someone get these people put out of the harrassment business.

These criminal telemarketers illegally leave fake information on your Caller ID (hence why some of the companies who you think are the ones calling really are not, although IXE definitely is one of them, American Debt Negotiatios is the other main culprit). The only way to stop them from calling you again and again (using different spoofed Caller ID info each time) is to report them using their real identities. Information on how to do this can be found at the only web site whose focus is to do just that: www.heatherwithaccountservices.com.

You are quite welcome Consumer PS. ;D My next victim is IXE out of Florida, the other company that uses "Heather at Credit Card Services" and "Heather" for Car Warranty. ;D If I am on the DNC list, and you call me, and I tell you to remove me from your client's call list and your internal call list (the one "oops" call), and you laugh at me, be prepared. Especially when you put me down to be called back everyday. Complaints were filed daily with the DNC list, the Florida State Atty General's Office, and with the FCC (a 1088 complaint).

Tis not nice to piss off someone who has worked in the telemarketing industry for 15 years as an agent, a supervisor, a trainer and a floor manager, cause I know how to get the info, where to complain, and who to call. I am a telemarketers worst nightmare.

If you're on the NDNCL and have caller ID, then for goodness sake report them! https://www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx

Unfortunately my husband and I are too poor for caller ID right now, but this sounds like who's been calling us harrassing about credit cards and vehicle warranties (both of which we don't have!!! rrrgh).

So please, for the good of all of us, please report them if you're lucky enough to get a number. That's all you really need. https://www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx

I received a call saying it was urgent they talk to me about my car warranty. I said "With what company?" Their reply, "What company do you have?" I said, "I just bought a car 3 days ago, and purchased a warranty with it. Are you telling me I have a problem here, if so--Yes, I want to talk to you about it." They hung up. Just like that. I am on the DNC list.

They called my CELL and my home phone .... all with the same message regarding my Credit Card no having a problem but that they could reduce my current card rate... touch 1 to speak to someone ... touch 2 to be removed from list. After several of these calls I decided to press 1 since 2 didn't seem to work. I spoke to rep and inquired what credit card were they calling about... She then said: All of them! I replied: So you do represent any creditor that I deal with! So please remove me from your call list and stop calling me. She then told me: I am not going to remove you , in fact, I am going to call you again tomorrow!and hung up! I immediately called the number on the caller id and received a message from an answering machine that the number had been disconnected. Is this a phishing scheme? or just a debt consolidator? Either way I intend to file a DNC complaint.

Call was negotiated on a dialer device, then requesting more information connected an Agent identifying the company as United Debt Aid, a company in Florida. When asked why they were calling me, I was told that they were not calling me directly, just calling anyone. I attempted to get a mailing address and was hung up on. When calling the number back, it just goes to a shady recorded message stating the number is no long in service. If you are listed on the US Do Not Call list, be sure to lodge a complaint against the caller.

Here's what you need to do if you get a call from this company. You need to call the Florida Division of Consumer Services at the Florida Attorney Generals Office at 850.488.2221 if you are calling from out of Florida. If calling from within Florida call 850.414.3390. They will send you a complaint form via email, assign you a complaint number and assigned you a complaint ID. From speaking with these people, they are violating at least three Federal and Florida State laws. 1. Calling DNC numbers. 2. Using a bogus Caller ID number. 3. Leaving automated messages on voice mails and answering machines, in addition to the scams listed on this website and others about requesting credit card information. You want them to stop, this is how you do it. I told ya Burt, I was gonna get cha.

Call him and tell him how you feel. I did. And every time they call me back, Im going to call him back.

Just got a call from a clown at this number who, after mispronouncing my name, told me I was eligible for some sort of extended warranty on my car. I asked, "And to what car are you referring?" He said that the info was blocked from his view, but all he needed was my VIN number to look it up. I asked, "Well, how can you be certain that I'm eligible for anything having to do with a car that you can't even identify?" He said that he can tell it's a car that's older than 2005 and that if I'd just read him my VIN number, he can better assist me. I said, "Well, I don't exactly have this info memorized, but isn't this MY business?" He said, "Well, it's a matter of public record." I said, "A record which you are apparently unable to pull up." He said, "Well, it's public in that I can walk up to your car and read it." I said, "Okay, walk up to it. I'll hold." He then hung up on me.

It seems he wasn't willing to make the walk from Hollywood, FL which, according to the Caller ID, was where he was calling from. Being the sarcastic jerk that I am, I naturally called the number, ready for Round 2. Except that the Caller ID number is a disconnected one. I find it interesting how people just expect you to give up all kinds of personal information without being straightforward in their own right.

Caller ID states 954-733-7981 however when calling this number back, you will get a message that the number is no longer in service. Its from a bogus credit card company wanting you to refinance with them. We are on the DNC list, and we have no credit cards. If I EVER find out who these people are, bad things are going to happen to the owner, at 3am in the morning with continual phone calls to their residence.

This pre-recorded msg said "No problem with your credit card account but we can lower your interest rate" but when I got to a rep (to get the company name) I told the rep that the company name did not sound genuine, then the rep began cursing at me. I have no credit cards with this phone number listed -- prviate number that's not listed on anything, except under AT&T and with DoNotCall.gov. This was a bigus telemarketing call, apparently from Florida where most of my problems calls originate. The rep said his name was "Jason Smith". When I told him my number was listed with DoNotCall he said "so what". I think a letter to the Ft Lauderdale City Hall is in order. Any one else want to join me?

Just received ANOTHER call from these ( expletive deleted )s. Turned in ANOTHER complaint to the FCC at https://esupport.fcc.gov/form1088/consumer.do. Let's keep after them and maybe the FCC will do something about them!

they just called. don't know who they are. i did not answer. the caller ID displaying a city ( FT LAUDRDA, FL) and not a name or company name is highly suspicious.

Just received a call from this number, I did not answer and there was no message left on machine. I attempted to call the number back but received a recording saying the number was reached in error. I wrote a complaint on the Do Not Call Registry website and also sent a letter to my state's Governor.

Maybe of more of us complain to the powers that be, something might be done. Most government official have websites where you can write to them.

The recorded message said this was the last chance to reduce interest rate on my credit card. I pressed 1 to speak to a live person. I asked what credit card this call referred to and she hung up on me.

Spoke with *Kristina*. Asked who she was calling from and she said her company's name was "Financial Services". She wouldn't release the DBA name, the name of the company on her paycheck, but she was willing to talk and didn't hang up on me when I questoned her. I told her that I was on the National DNC list and she couldn't explain to me why I was called. I asked her to remove me from their data base. She said she needed me to give her my number, but when I gave her my area code, she admitted she already had my number. This was the 7th call from them in the last 2 months. In fact, this number called my home on Saturday the 8th of March(2 days ago) and played a message telling me my warrenty on my car was about to expire and to hang on the line to speak to a rep. My husband hung up but noted the number and date/time.The rep I spoke to, Kristina, told me that the National DNC list was a joke and that it didn't work. Obviously.

I have filed numerous complaints with the FTC and FCC and nothing get resolved thru those agencies. They just take the complaint and store it away.

I just got the call as well and I live in North Carolina. I didn't answer but, when I called back it said it "the international number can not be dialed from this phone"? Has anyone else tried to call the number back? Very odd because it is the same number listed above.

I just received the recorded call from the 954-733-7981, and this one was saying they could extend the warranty on my car. To get more information about these sleezballs, I pressed "1" and was given to a person who told me an extended warranty for a 2004 Dodge Dakota (I don't even have one, but I needed to pick something), would be $2500 to make the warranty good up to 200,000 miles. I was able to get out of the person that he was from the "Winners Circle" and they "worked with all major auto manufacturers". I tried to lead him on by saying I was interested but needed to talk to my wife and would he have a number where I could call him back. He then promptly hung up.

For the life of me, I don't see how people actually give these people money. I mean they are calling you illegally, they will not provide company data, and when you ask for a call back number, they hang up.

When I answered the phone, no one spoke, but I could hear background noise. When I called the number back, I could still hear background noise, but then a lady's voice said the number had been disconnected or was no longer in use. "She" didn't sound like the normal opperator you would hear on a normal call though.

The caller(recording) said that I was eligible for a reduced rate on my credit card account, but that my eligibility was expiring. If I wanted to take advantage stay on the line. When I got a service person, they started to ask questions about my credit and I asked them if they knew who I was ... they then hung up.

Following up, I pressed "1" and phone was answered shortly by someone who is clearly reading from a script and also not the brightest guy. I asked for the name of the company and he said it was "Card Services." I asked what card he was calling about and he said my Mastercard. I said "Your recording says to consider this my final warning, but you keep calling. How can I speak to your superiors?" There was a long silence, except for background noise which sounded like a TV playing in the background. I then said "Hello?" "What was your question?", he asked. "How can I contact your superiors?" Then he hung up on me.

I'm in Scottsdale, Arizona. I have Caller ID and so didn't answer. They didn't leave a message. AT&T is located somewhere in Florida and I used to have a card with them so maybe it's AT&T.

automated call stating it was "Heather" from credit services, and that it had to do with my credit card, but never said which credit card company it was. Wanted to lower my interest rate.

the FCC has a website with a form where you can report them. The URL is: https://esupport.fcc.gov/form1088/consumer.do

They can't call you with a recording unless it is an emergency or unless it is something you authorized (like your kid's school or your church). Those auto dial things have to check the DNC list, too. It gives you the rules for the telemarketers on the FCC website. It is fairly straightforward. Here is the URL for that http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/tcpa.html

Be sure and report all these calls like this that you get. We'll win this war eventually if we persevere!!!

sign me -- I can be just as evil as you are!!!
