Great idea - to stop legitimate telemarketers that follow the rules. All. My phone numbers are on the national and state registries.
But scammers obviously don't pay any attention to anyone's laws and regulations (everything they do is illegal!), and generally just generate their own call lists by numerical sequencing, so this won't stop them. They also spoof their caller ID number, displaying a number that is not in use, generally one that is disconnected. Best bet - NEVER give any personal information like bank or credit/debit card numbers to ANYONE over the phone or through a link in an email. No legitimate financial institution would ask for this information from you in that manner.
Got a missed call on my cell phone this morning about 8:30 AM eastern time. I have a Reverse Lookup App on my cell, and I check every number I don't recognize. This one came up "Personal court" so I used the "Google it" option, and found this page. On reading the first few comments, I saw it was as I suspected - a scam phishing call. So, I labeled the number exactly that in my contacts list so it will be immediately recognized if they ever call back! Next step - the State Attorney General's office for them violating the "Do Not Call" list regulations, and the FTC. May not do much good since they are spoofing a telephone number, but you never know!
Got a call left no message. Wow got one yesterday on my cell from "100", same type of fraud. Must have got on the wrong calling list :)
Got a call, left no message

Register with the National Do Not Call List at www.donotcall.gov. Most solicitors will not call after you have been on this list for about 31 days.
Called from "suntrust bank" that my mastercard was locked up. To unlock it please give them my 16 digit credit card number. Is a fraudulent call to get credit card details.
Got 2 phone calls last night on my cell phone with no message left.
Received automated phone call from this number claiming they were from SunTrust bank and that my account had a security breach. They asked me to press 1 to confirm some information. I don't bank there so I hung up.
It called me 3 times & told me my Sun Trust Master card was locked. I don't own that card. Please stop calling before I report to the police or Consumer Protection Federation.
said bank card was blocked and called bank they reported it. this has happened 2 days in a row. what the crap.....
These bozos called my cell at 11:40pm, big surprise they didn't leave a message.
Got a call on my cell and they hung up as I was answering the call. Now that I have read all the comments, glad I didn't answer.
They just called my cell phone saying my debit card was locked, pressed one, they wanted to make sure they had the correct card number..... they wanted ME to say MY credit card number. SCAM!
Recieved a call at 9:00 p.m today. I tried calling it back, and it said that it was not a working number. My bank account was basicly robbed last week, and I lost $2000.00 from my account. I am thinking that maybe this number has some type of connection to this. DO NOT give out ANY information to anyone who calls you, think about it. Why would your bank need your card number? They have everything they need right in front of them.
Had a missed call. Tried to call back, number was disconnected.
I got a call from thhis number wanting information on my credit cards. The message was so garbbled that it was hard to tell what they wanted. It was a computer talking to me. I hung up with no information given.
received a call from this # on my cell, saying my c/card is locked up, wanted my 16 digit number, i hung up, they called 3 x's again. what a scam
Got a call from 586-843-2099 at 4 a.m. this morning left message saying my card was locked and press a key to talk to security. I will pursue this scam artist to the tenth degree. Too bad I couldn't crawl thru the phone and ......it wouldn't be pretty
I got a call from that number. They did not not leave a message as my phone messaging was turned off. I don't even have any credit or debit cards. Glad to find out it's a scam.
