You are fantastic my sir. Hope your novel comes along nicely. Writers block sucks - but cell phone block man thats worse!
They call daily, sometimes 2 too 3 times a day. They call roughly the same times each day. They never leave a business name or even a phone number to return their call. After 6 months and multiple reports to the "do not call list" website, the calls continue.
All you bitching and whining people need to pick up your phone and call the FCC and file a complaint about every single one of these numbers. It is the ONLY way to get them to stop calling....the fines escalate with every documented complaint.
Have their calls automatically forwarded to your state Attorney General. I Have ATT Uverse and that is a free feature. Sooner or later he will get mad enough to do something about it. Can you imagine if everyone in this country would do that.????
I just found out that I have what is called "exclusive call forwarding" on my phone. I have a list of 12 numbers that these scumbags have called me from and I am forwarding them all to the Mississippi Attorney General's fraud reporting line. They have called 2-3 times a day for the past four weeks. In the future when they call it will automatically forward the call to his office. Maybe after he gets enough of these calls, he will do something about it. By the way, I have ATT Uverse for my telephone service.
Here are a few of the numbers that have been calling me:
The Mississippi AG number is 6013594230
Somebody called about setting up a home energy survey, saying I could save on my electric bill. I explained that I don't have an electric bill because I have a flux capacitor that generates 1.21 jigawatts of electricity. Poor guy was clueless, said he'd have to check that out.
This caller keeps calling trying to convince me to switch credit cards and asking for personal information. They are rude and tell me that they cannot stop the calls. I want them stopped. How can I stop them. They are calling from 321-305-9999.
Said she was Deborah and wanted to know who she was speaking with. I asked who I was speaking with and she said "Do you want to lower your credit card interest rate or are you just being nosy". I hang up.
I have received numerous calls from this "Credit Card Company" from a lot of different numbers even though I am on both state and federal do not call lists.
I have started responding by entering 1 to speak to someone when the answer I blow a whistle! They hang up very fast.
This works,, when the rep comes on make it an obscene call, I did and laughed my a** off, made pumping sounds and heavy breathing,, told she had a sexy voice, keep talking,, she hung up
just a marketing scam. Dont pick up the phone and they wont leave a message either.
Credit card consolidation
Received multiple calls from Rachel at Card Holder Services and have reported to the national no call service on multiple occasions. I have even held for the CSR and asked that they remove my number. These days, I just don't answer the phone unless I recognize the number.
I don't have Caller ID so I pick up my phone. These calls are always recorded and they always say the same thing--"This is Rachel at Cardholder Services..." and then I hang up. I would like to shoot the company manager and all its employees, but I guess that's illegal. But then, so is what they're doing. I don't see any of the suggestions above that would do much good. It's not fun being the victim of criminals, especially when you don't have any remedy.
Your Company has called me on 12-27 @ 5:46, 12-26 @ 11:49 , 12-20@2:55. I believe this is harassment under FCC rules. I plan on contacting the FCC just to make sure! I have never done business with your company and have no plans to. I will also contact the BBB to let them know as well. Thanks for all the unwelcome calls
Just got a call from this number, but I didn't answer b/c it was unknown to me.
Thankfully, I just got a new set of Uniden cordless phones and I can mute the ringer on both phones at the touch of a button.
Cardholder Services, telling me I need to call them urgently regarding lowering CC interest.
Usually get these on the cell, but this one came to the home phone.
The callel i.d. says "Florida. It's the same old message, a woman who says, "This is Rachel calling about your credit cards. There are no problems currently with your accounts, but...."
I hung up. I don't have problems with my credit. I'm registered on Do Not Call.
These are annoying calls, disruptive, and a waste of time. I want them to stop.
this number called again. a man answered the cakk. they are soliciting lower interest rates. difficult to call back. other party blocks me.
Credit card scammer. Reported to NDNC registry.
Although I selected "telemarketer" for Call Type, I believe this to be criminal fraud rather than telemarketing.
Third call since spring from "Cardholder Services." The first two, I said "No thanks," and hung up. Smarter this time, I checked caller ID and had time to see FLORIDA in big block letters (larger than normal) before the screen went blank. Caller seemed to be a black woman in her mid-to-late 30s. When I tried to get her company name and number she kept interrupting as if reading from a script about credit card interest rate reduction to 6.9 percent. There was NO background noise. When I asked where she was, she said "central Florida." In an attempt to establish rapport, I asked, "Orlando?,"
"Ocala?," "Gainesville?" and "I went to college in Gainesville..." her abrupt response was "MIAMI" (!!) which, "everybody" knows, is on the southeast coast at the "bottom" of the state. When I asked for a number to call her company, she said to call the 800 Customer Service number on the back of my VISA card, and I would be transferred to her company. When I continued to probe, she hung up. Her "hangup" produced a strange tone. I immediately reported the incident to DO NOT CALL. It was only later that it occurred to me to dial *69 for the last number that called me. The phone company told me the last number that called my number was 1-321-304-9999.
"card holder services" calls with a recorded message to let them lower your interest rate to 6.9%, but then they don't know your number or have your name or information on your card. they ask for your information including your card number, name, address, and other information in order to chaching your accounts and open new ones in an effort to ruin you and your credit. If you ask for their call back number they hang up. If you ask their address they hang up. If you ask where they are located they hang up. They want your info and to not let theirs be know. Never give information to some one to whom you didn't initiate the call.
I got the same call and it was ded silence so I hung up and report them to the do not call registry and which I hope they shut them down for trying to think people will give them there credit card numbers or anything else.
Phone ID showed "Florida." The call was about lowering interest rate. We are on the 'Do Not Call" registry, so why are we getting this type of call? Frustrating.
These phone numbers call and my number is on a do not solicit list. all the numbers end in 9999. Can these callers be stopped?
Called early and woke me up, wanted credit card info
"...no problem with your credit card but it is urgent....."
Yes, I got a recorded message about my credit card? I hung up immediately. The call came from Florida. This number is new for me as of yesterday. I did register it at https://www.donotcall.gov/. If they continue to call me after 31 days, I will file a formal complaint. I suggest that all of you register your Tel # at this government site so that you
have a recourse if they continue to call day after day.
Please report them to the FTC... every call if necessary. They're relentless. Reporting only takes a minute or two and may (I hope) make them back off.
