Woman refuse to tell me the name of her company, BUT she wanted my credit card info to reduce my interest rate.....I told her to take me off the calling list, she replied, NO! I was shocked so I repeated myself again, and again she said NO! and then hung up on me.

the initial message indicated that this was "my" credit card company and this was my last chance to lower my interest rate. to speak to a representative press 1". So I did and let the person who answered know that I found the call strange and misleading and that I would report this number. He hung up on me before I could finish my sentence. This sounds like they are trying to obtain people's credit card information.

I have received many calls from 616-980 2782 offering to reduce rates on mastercard or visa.
You cannot respond as it is a recorded message.  Wish the authorities would stop these idiots!
Guess the "idiots" must get some response otherwise they would not keep calling everyone.
We can still hope the authorities will catch up to them.

Got a robo call from this number, "get a lower rate." I'm in Canada, call originates in Michigan. I pressed the number to talk to a rep to get them to remove me from the call list. B***h just hung up, did not even say goodbye, just hung up. Next time I will have my whistle ready and blow as loud as I can into the phone. Cheers, Kevin

Just had a call from 616-980-2782 - recorded message saying we have tried to contact you many times and this is the last chance to have your credit card interest rate lowered.  Press 1 to speak to a representative.  Thought it was a scam, but pressed 1 to see what they had to say.    Guy came on, saying that because I have such a good payment record for the past six months, I was entitled to a lower interest rate on my Visa and Master Card.  Oh really???  Both Visa and Master Card, eh???  Told the low-life scammer that I wasn't falling for his b*s offer and hung up.

Will report them to authorities, not that it will do any good.

Ya I got this one too. I asked to be removed from the scam list and he's like its not a scam, you haven't been making payments...blah blah. So I asked what my info was and he responded with "this is automatic dial so we don't have that information on file". I had no choice but laugh and then told him he was full of sh*t since I had no credit cards. He paused and said "oh then you must have received this call in error".

It AMAZES me how some people can set out and be so devious.

I received a call from this number requesting that I press 1 if I want my credit card interest rate lowered....Who doesn't want that right? Well in talking to a young lady she explained and then when I basically took over the call someone who was listening stepped in and explained how they are a company called "CARD SERVICES" who works along Credit Card companies for consumers who are looking for a lower rate....I asked why didn't the credit card company call themselves.  When asked what's in it for them they say they get a fee of $896.00 and then they contact the company and have the rate lowered....hahahah...they must of taken me for an a**hole....then he says all that he needs is my Credit Card number and then charge the $896.00 to MY CARD....lol..... and the rate would be lowered in 1 month.  Please beware of this number and especially for the older people, please don't give ANY information over the phone....the only how you give information, is when YOU call the establish itself and they want verification that it is you......if they call you, they will already have that verification and Credit Card number/s available..

Received a call from this number and there wasn’t anyone on the other end!  I have phone system that can call screen based on each number and apply a call treatment rule, so I configured my phone so that if they call back it will forward the call back to their own number.  So they will be calling themselves, I do this or a variation of this for all telemarketers, virtual ring, call block, forward to, etc.  I hope they call regularly.

These guys use, multiple phone numbers with scams about credit cards or other things,trips, they even use ghost numbers at times, sounds like same people sometimes use same number. , they also use Florida numbers.


My two cents worth:
On telemarketers, scams, untraceable ghost  numbers
As far do not call list:
Whats the use of Canadian do not call list, if only one company was ever known to be charged by the law, and it was a tel-co and they still call me & everyone I ever spoken too about them. directly or through a contracted third party or agency.

My calls have increased several folds since I included it on do not call list.

One  can't get added to American do not call list though many callas come there, And forget about    off shore call centers ( many of which have big offices in Canada and US but call center is south Asia we all know the accent.  
In this age of technology, it would simple to have (* xx) number automatically alerting tel-co which if get more than hand full of calls would charge them a usage fee or fine amount equal to 10% of net income if verified and if they continue blocked completely from accessing and calling ( calls originating from centers covered do not call list laws).  If they make more from fines than income from these call centers, they will stop. Telephone companies will never motivated stop them  if their is a fraction of a penny to be made by by each call.  
If telephone company can't stop them it phone service as we know it will disappear  I have had same number for decades, thinking canceling service, going to cheep prepaid disposable cellphone.
I am sure important calls are left unanswered simply because they unrecognized, by home owner.  If don't recognize the number I don't answer,  what happens if a relative call while traveling out town and needs to talk.  Or now most have unlisted numbers, and their not answered.  Only 1 in 20 calls to my house is actually a call intended for me.

I have these jokers call all the time. At first I would just not answer or hang up when I did answer and realized what it was....but then an idea came to me...what if I could cost them time and money....so the next time they called I did as told until I got an operator…then I follower his lead and answered as many of his question as he asked…I asked a lot of questions myself ( the wackier the better) I let him give me his spiel all the while keeping up the insistent question asking…..I made small talk with him and ask about his family and his personal life…I took the time to use the washroom while he talked to me…I told him about my dogs illness and the problems I had with my car…all the while giving him as much info as I possibly could…..45 minutes later he finally hung up on me….relax people I was scamming the scammer…none of the info I gave him was real….just real enough sounding to keep him on the line…even the credit card # I gave was false…but it did have the correct amount of numbers and a believable expiry date. My way of thinking is that I made them waste 45 minutes of there time (which they paid for as they called me) and probably kept them from bothering others…I can’t wait until they call back.

...Same deal as Steven T but I was going to play the scam so I hit 1.  ...five seconds to disconnect...   Too bad! I wanted to have some fun and tie up the SoB's.  You know; hold on a minute while I call my wife to get the numbers; fake a call to my wife while she reads back a half a dozen numbers dates etc. which I carefully repeat with the scamer line "accidentally" still open; fake name; fake number; sorry I got messed up on the number; here try this one.  

I had some time on my hands.  You can keep these scumbags on the line for quite some time if you're creative.
