Caller offers to reduce interest rates on unsecured debt, then asks for balances and the names of account holders, and interest rates on accounts.
They keep calling but no one ever answers
I keep getting the same type of call from numbers like this who offer lower interest rates on credit cards then want to know you balance and name of account holder. When I ask to be taken off their calling list they just hang up on me.
NO one answered my cell when they called and didn't leave a message. I tried returning the call and it said the number was temporarily unavailable.
Me, too. Got a call on my cell. Have no clue who this people are. Just hang up on them and save cell minutes!
Never got the chance to answer it. But they didn't leave a message.
Received a call from this number at 11:00 am CST on my cell and they left no message. Keep your postings coming and do not answer these as they are usually scams. You are wasting minutes if you answer. I always google numbers I do not know and this is the second call this week but with a different area code. Read similar postings about that number as well.
I just received a call from 616-980-2589. I do not answer calls if I don't recognize the number. I google & try reverse phone lookup for details. I agree it is not a good idea to answer any call from a number you are not familiar with and never give out ANY personal information about yourself unless you have solicited/requested that the caller contact you, you know who is calling i.e. your bank, employer, etc. you have VERIFIABLE identification info for the caller: name, address, phone number, i.d./reference number the reason why your info is needed, how they got your number. Ask the caller for all their info, do not give out your own, tell them you may contact them back after you have thouroughly investigated what they have told you to be legitamate & accurate. These calls are almost always SCAMS!!! BE CAREFUL!!!
Best thing to do is Ignore any type of calls that you don't recognized. I've been having different calls every week w/ different area codes & I did I research on these callers (THEY ARE SCAMS) Don't even bother to return the calls &/or see who's calling you.
This number keeps calling my cell phone every few days with an automated voice message about some bogus credit account I do not have, nor want to have. I want this to stop.
Just received a phone call from this number in regards to lowering my interest rates on credit cards. THey could not provide further information as to which credit card it was, and the recording assured there was nothing wrong with my credit card. However, they offered to press one to lower the rate. So me - being the fool that I am, pressed one to see what would happen. A woman named Tonya answered and said "Hi, my name is Tonya, did you press one to lower your interest rate?" I said no, and she replied "THen what are you pressing one for?" I then asked, "How did you get my number?" She then said, "don't be pressing one to ask me that" and then hung up. Bogus.
I don't know who this is they leave no message and no Vm is set up.
I receive calls from this number all the time, same stories as above; constant calls no message. I just looked up the process for "call blocking" from my telephone provider so I'll see if that works. They have several numbers so it may take a few trys but it's worth it not to answer 5 messages on my recorder and have 4 hang up calls.
Keep getting calls from this #. Though now they have changed their caller ID readout to show "CALL" and nothing else. I guess that qualifies as clever to these people.
Its definetly a scam of some sort.
Information i could find about number wasn't much:
Type: Land Line
Location: Grand Rapids, MI
These criminal telemarketers illegally leave fake information on your Caller ID. 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.
They call my cellphone at school and I don't even known why or who they is.
What can I do to keep them from calling
The number they call from is 616-980-2589 if you get a call from this number don't answer because it a bunch of bull crap calling trying to scam somebody I want to find out where it is coming from so I can give them a piece of my mind .
Tral, these illegal calls are coming from a Florida-based company called American Debt Negotiators. You can get the information about these crooks and who to report them to at www.heatherwithaccountservices.com
I have also received numerous calls from this person. I finally looked up the company that provides for them. The carrier is called Lucre, Inc & is located at 4011 Plainfield Ave. N.E. in Grand Rapids MI 49525. There telephone number is 616-361-0128. I am going to call them because someone needs to be help accountable for this.
Calls from this number
These people keep calling my CELL phone about some credit card nonsense. When I ask them to take me off of their list they hang up on me.
Caution: Not every Triton Technologies may be the same!
The Triton Technologies based in Massachusets and
Eric Chasen may have nothing in common with the
scumbag outfits in Michigan.
If you have some way to connect them please post it.
It looks like a Michigan telephone company Lucre has
an incestuous relationship to a phone sales boiler
room operation called Triton, with common employees
and an address right next door.
This incestuous relationship allows Triton
to have UNLISTED phone numbers galore and to
fake the Caller ID at will using trunk lines.
I think Jon K "JK" Hale is the head rat although
"R Steve" "Steve" (71?) is officially the head rat.
