Another number for the Google listings scam, they switched back and forth from this number and 2063971159 during the last two weeks.
Nothing that you do will stop them from calling you. The major players behind this have made millions of dollars, which means that they are too big to fail.
One of the major players specializes in aiding the rich with tax evasion and shell corporations set up in Belize. You can bet that the well to do in this country are not getting lower your credit card interest rate calls and due to that fact our government just considers a few phone calls a minor annoyance.
The FCC has temporarily halted 5 of the minor unprofitable boiler rooms. They will receive a slap on the wrist and be back at it within a few days.
In the meantime the calls will continue since the major money is being made with what is called a CNAM revenue-sharing program through companies like http://www.telephonemanagement.net and http://www.CallerID4U.com
In their own words: 'Every day your company makes thousands of outbound phone calls. Every one of those calls generates revenue for many companies, why not yours? Our CNAM revenue-sharing program helps you make money every time a Caller ID request is made by a phone carrier. A high-traffic call center can lose hundreds to thousands of dollars a day to phone carriers by allowing them to charge for access to your own data.'
You can now see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. They are making money even if you don't answer the phone. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them. These people are the lowest form of filth on this planet. The only way to stop this is to contact the FBI and ask why this crime family is allowed to operate and facilitate the ongoing criminal operations. This is one of the reasons that the RICO act was put in place, so why aren't they using it. Is this because this isn't a high profile, news worthy operation or is the FBI too understaffed and busy with Homeland Security issues. Maybe if we were rich they would take this seriously, but then if we were rich we would be using that criminal organizations services and protecting them instead of trying to shut them down. It is alleged that they launder money from Pacific Telecom through a trust bank account in Oregon and into foreign accounts at Scotiabank in Belize and other destinations.
Why hasn't the FBI used the RICO act and gone after this organization? On October 15, 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961?1968), commonly referred to as the 'RICO Act', became United States law. The RICO Act allowed law enforcement to charge a person or group of people with racketeering, defined as committing multiple violations of certain varieties within a ten-year period. The purpose of the RICO Act was stated as 'the elimination of the infiltration of organized crime and racketeering into legitimate organizations operating in interstate commerce'. S.Rep. No. 617, 91st Cong., 1st Sess. 76 (1968). However, the statute is sufficiently broad to encompass illegal activities relating to any enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce.

This is a SCAM! They pretend to lower your credit card APR but actually open a new credit line. If asked ANY questions, they hang up.
DO NOT create a complaint on their SCAM website, you will only get more calls from other dispoable numbers for the exact same fraudulent scheme.
report calls to the FCC https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2
I received a call from this number today at 1:36 PM, CST. They hung up when i answered, im not sure if thry hung up or disconnected.
I went to the CallerID4u.com website and called the number listed there to file complaints - (206) 792-9399. I complained to them and they said they would take care of it. IDK if they will or not. Then within an hour I got another call from (425) 320-5061. This time an automated scam selling home security systems. When I returned a call to that number I never got an answer and it kept ringing busy. For all I know the number I called to complain sold it to the second company. What a PITA!!!
CALLED AND LEFT NO MESSAGE. WONDERING HOW THEY GOT MY CELL NUMBER. MY RULE IS "IF I DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER ON MY CELL I DO "NOT" ANSWER IT. IF IT IS 'LEGIT' THEY WILL LEAVE A MESSAGE ON MY VM. I TOO AM ON THE NATIONAL REGISTRY OF 'DO NOT CALL LIST'.
Got a call @ 4:30 CST, didn't answer. Left no message. Dial number back it was an automatic systems. Saying if i want to remove my number from a do not call list. Enter my number, and someone will be on the line to assist you. I just hung up. SCAM.
I did some investigating and the number is provided to the so called credit card 'company' by http://www.callerid4u.com/ which used to be Telecom Pacific. Their website purports that they keep their customers, i.e. 2532362156 compliant with the do not call registry, but I don't buy it. All of you should take the time to do the following:
1) File a complaint with the FCC, http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
2) Write your US Rep, http://www.house.gov/
3) Write your US Senators, http://www.senate.gov/
Just saw a missed call on my cell phone. Called that number and had the recording to opt out of calls. I guess I fell for that. Too bad I did not first check this site. I have both our phones on "do not call list" however, that only works so much. I' ll try the blocking of the number.
Infuriated. Got some idiot with an accent who hung up on me as soon as the words 'do not call registry' came out of my mouth. If ANYONE can identify the company, please post it. I know my US Representative and I would like to send the company info to all representatives in my state as well as both senators. So f*****g angry right now!!!
I have gotten calls from 'Rachel at cardholder services' on a landline for months. Based on prior posts, it appears this is part of the same scam. The landline has no caller id. Today I received a call for the first time on my primary Vonage line from this number. After saying 'hello' several times, someone finally came on the line and mentioned they were calling because I pay off my credit cards on time. When I asked, 'did you say you were calling because I don't pay my cards on time?', she indicated it was BECAUSE I pay them on time. When I asked 'why would you call me because I pay my card off on time', she replied 'because you are a big stupid'. Then she hung up. As may others have mentioned, I am on do not call lists already. Unfortunately due to my work, I can't merely screen my calls. I have to answer each call that comes in. This should be treated as harrassment as they do it on a regular basis.
I thought the FCC announced they had (finally) caught up with these 'lower your credit card interest rates' people. But no. Today they called my cell phone. The usual - This is Cardholder Services. Don't worry, nothing is wrong with your account.... etc. Press 1 to talk to a live person, and you get some guy from India. He confirms that you owe at least $3500 on your card, and the interest rate is at least 10%. Then asks for the card number. I gave him mine: 1234 5678 910... he hung up before I got to the end.
Robots have found out how to dial phones, and if they bother me again, I will find them and cut their power cable so they won't be able to charge their batteries anymore. Maybe then they will stop calling
I have received calls from this number before and they don't leave a message. I received one again today.
ALSO received a call from this number on my mobile phone. nothing identifying on the screen except the phone #. i get them almost daily and just ignore them--same shpiel...and when i do answer and ask them anything (anything at all!) they just hang up. don't get it.
I am on the don't call list and people are still trying to solicate. I wish they stopped calling
Received a call from this number on my cell phone, which is a number I do not give out. I didn't recognize the number so I didn't answer. Left no voicemail message. The 253 area code is for suburban Seattle, WA. I don't even live in that state.
Received a call this morning from the above Phone Number, at 9:15 AM EST. No message was left. I didn't recognize the number, so I did a reverse look up on anywho.com. Not recognized. So I Googled it to find this list. Now I'm glad I didn't call it back. Thought it may have been from a friend or relative that lives in WA state.
i did call this number back to get off their "do not call list"can they do somthing with my number that i may regret?
If You Don't Know the Caller...
1) WHY ARE YOU ANSWERING THE PHONE?
2) As for "do not provide...that doesn't already know it..." FALSE. People can still be easily swindled.
3) And most important of all, it is common fact the legitimate credit card companies do NOT make outbound calls for new business. PERIOD.
I called the number back said a whole lot of nothing said if I press 1 it would remove my phone # from list. We shouldn't have to do that we our phone is unlisted and on the do nit call list.
I also received a call from this number on my cell - and no message of course. I would agree that it could be a company calling themselves 'Card Services'. I have also been called from 'Card Services' repeatedly on my home home - and they leave a message there. It is to refinance credit cards. I never carry a credit card balance!! I've asked them to stop but of course, they don't.
Got a call today - no voicemail. I called back after reading this thread. It actually was the option to remove my number and so I did. We'll see what actually happens though.
They called my cell phone but I did not answer because I did not recognize the number. They left a voice mail about lowering my interest rates. I am also on the do not call list for my home and cell numbers.
Just received a phone call from this number also. The caller ID said Kent, WA. Since I know no one in Kent, WA, I didn't pick up. They didn't leave a message.
I received this call today at 11:20AM EST on my Verizon cell phone,but chose to ignore it since I didn't recognize the number; No message was left.
Random early morning call, no message.
Received call from this number, no message.
What do you do if you did press 1 and enter your phone number?
