This is OBVIOUSLY a Scammer.
They called ME...I don't have a card of any sort.
SCAM, SCAM, SCAM, SCAM, SCAM!
Let this put it to rest: If they call you, and you have no card, then they are lying.
I posted before. This is FRAUD IN THE FIRST DEGREE.
Just to be clear - I worked for a credit card company from 1995-1997. I worked for Merrill Lynch for 16 years. ML is now owned by BofA. I have had a BofA credit card since 1995, and the card is now branded ML because ML was bought by BofA. And I remember a long time ago, BofA using this 800#.
These fraudsters are slick. I called the real BofA and spoke with a guy in Card Services, the 800-421-2110 # was used at one time but is no longer used. The fraudsters hijacked a legit old # and are fooling people. Also the voice menu lady sounds the same, and ASKS FOR YOUR FULL CREDIT CARD # OR SOCIAL SECURITY #. A legit credit card company would never ask for this in a voice menu. Maybe the last 4 digits of your card if you call a legit #, but never the full #. And never a SSN.
BEWARE AND AVOID. THE FRAUD IS RATCHETING UP.
this is inded a valid B of A number. Not sure why some people who say they don't have accounts there are getting calls. They followed up on a refund I was due to let me know it had been credited.
Caller identified this as an automated call from Experion on behalf of Capital One, Chase, and Citibank. That it was an automated call placed by Experion as I was eligible to have reduced credit card rates. "Rachel" gave the intro speech. Company finally identified as Card Member Services, financial department. Gentleman had an Indian accent.
This number is a real Bank Of America phone number. It is listed on the credit report as the contact number for Bank of America credit cards. I know this from personal experience with having a Bank of America card.
They scam on the elderly, Now my mother in law is worried that she has a debt of $769.00, did not had have that amount of money, she ever spent those a***oles claim are from a shopping spree on September this year, Oh no BEWARE enough of those a***ole con-artists impersonating from important financial institutions, I said to her don't worry it's a SCAM, She does not have to paid those a***oles with proof that She is innocent, Those a***oles should be behind bars for operating illegal business that hurt others financially.
Left no message but I have gotten several blocked calls this morning just prior. They will do anything to get one to answer even assaulting my phone with 4 calls or 2 calls at the same time so that my service will let them through. They didn't get through so then they use this fake name.
It is a phishing fraud .....
It is Bank Of America......
Got a call from 800-421-2110 "Card Services," asking for me by name. The voice message I got was:
"Hello this message is for Philip [my last name] please call card services at 1-800-711-4517. It is important to return my call. It is regarding your recent request. Thank you"

Their line appears to be crossed with ours. We have received numerous calls from Bank of America cardholders thinking they are calling Member services. I called the 1-800-421-2110 number myself to report what was happening and was immediately asked for my card number. No company name given. I called AT&T to report it and was told it was scamming. We are telling the people who continue to call us by mistake that they are being scammed and to not give any information and to call the police immediately.
This number came up as an alert on my Free Credit report.com monthly report that my card was listed as lost or stolen. I called this number which prompted me to enter my credit card number. This is a scam. Scary that free credit report did not catch it since they are charging me a monthly service to prevent this.
Was having a problem using online banking transfers between in-house accts in April. Reported it to BoAmer. and found they "had gone through an upgrade" which should have corrected the problem. Then got calls from 800-421-2110 and a "Bank of America tech" - he suggested installing Google Chrome; which, he said, should eliminate my problem. Did so; but, after reading some of the other postings here, now wonder if I've compromised my computer. He allso gave a 'direct line number' which the 'tech' said would reach him directly. As much as I dislike to do so, I'll have to report this to Bank of America because when I checked his 'direct line' number, it was listed for Phoenix, AZ. Stupid is as stupid does.... :-(
I received a call from 1-800-421-2110 from a woman named Juliana saying she was investigator from Bank of America (BOA). She called me in April 2012 regarding a fraud claim I filed with Bank of America in December 2011. Following my conversation with her, I called BOA back with additional questions. BOA informed me there were no notes in their file regarding this conversation I had with this alleged investigator and my December 2011 fraud claim was resolved. One month later this this lady called me telling me this matter was not resolved, asking me to fax my picture ID to 804-264-5735. Naturally, when I called 1-800-421-2110 it only says card services and you must enter in a card number or else you get nothing.
Didn't answer (never do, if don't know #). Message stated Wws someone named "Mei Ching"; couldn't understand anything else he said + am glad I did not pick up. The 800 phone number is on the back of my BOA credit card-but is an automated voice when you call, as others have stated + you can clearly understand their representatives. Am guessing this is the type of scam others have stated here- where it looks like it is coming from # 800-421-2110, but is not actually coming from that number.
This number is on my credit report as inquiry. When I called it, I got an immediate text message from 25434: # Info Svc $9.99/mo Msg&data rates may appy for 20 lookups/mo.Reply HELP for help www.numsvc.com Reply Y for info on # you R dialing Reply STOP to cancel
I have done nothing.. but so strange to have a text immediately on my phone from dialing number and stranger yet it is an inquiry on my credit report fromFIA SCNA, Wilmington, DE????
Part of a fraud campaign targeting numerous financial institutions. Note the pattern of shill postings all claiming the number is real - an obvious giveaway.
The large number of phony posts claiming the call is real come from some con artists spamming the site to try to fool people. There is a similar pattern to other fake calls claiming to be from Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, US Bank, Wells Fargo, RBC, PayPal, etc. all with the same shill postings:
FRAUD ALERT! This phone number appears as "Bank of America" on caller ID. This number is NOT Bank of America. The caller claims to be from Bank of America and wants to get information about your credit card. The caller is NOT from Bank of America. Do not give this caller any information. Hang up immediately and report it to the FCC.
This is not Bank of America, but rather a phishing scam.
The number is fake. Note the multiple shill postings claiming the number is genuine - a sure sign of a fraud being promoted - same type of scam as the old email phishing frauds, but they've moved on to try and use the phones now that everyone is aware of email phishing scams.

1-800-421-2110 is a legit number. However the number they originally called you from probably isn't. I got a call from 302-457-5242 from a "Bianca". I asked for another number that I could call her back on to verify that who I was calling was not a scam. She gave me the 800-421-2110 number. Clever, since that is a real number for BOA. I anticipate a call back from her at any time, unless my unwillingness to provide her with any information made me a less desirable target. I called the number on the back of my bankcard, so I knew it would be a real number, and I asked them to verify the information given. No "Bianca" works for the BOA credit department, nor is 302-457-5242 anywhere on the BOA directory, plus there were no remarks on my account as to why the would be calling me. Only thing that checked out was the 800-421-2110 number. Good luck
As reported by another posting, this is the number to call on the back of my Bank of America credit card. Please note that I have another Bank of America credit card with a different number as well.
This ph number does belong to BOA.
Somebody call from this numb er saying that they need to talk to me from bank of america never in my life bank of america call me before and they didnt have my information so I dont understand then.
I received a letter today thanking me for using my bofa credit card. The letter was very short and vague and even included a gift card for barnes and nobles. I thought it was fishy already when I saw that I was given a gift card just because. Now, since when does bank of america give out free gift cards? Never, unless you've redeemed your reward points for it. And so I decided to call barnes and nobles to check the balance on the gift card ad it says $0. So then I called the 1-800-421-2110 to see why they had sent me a gift card and it automatically said card services and required that I punch in my account number, last 4 digits, sign in info and personal pin. I'm very familiar with bofa's customer service line and it was nothing close to this number. Bofa has a male operator speaking whereas, this one has a female operator speaking. Please beware of this phone number as I think it is a scam to steal your personal information.
Apparantly, Bank of America did an inquiry into my credit report (Transunion). The number listed to contact to Bank of America is 800-421-2110. Apparantly, there are some scam artists using this number....I can't seem to get anyone to respond to it.
Same thing happened to me through FICO. I called my bank right away and they said they didn't have any record of any problems or reports. Called fico and equifax and both said it sounded like a scam... My credit score went up so I'm not sure who to call next. The number on my alert is the (800) 421-2110 # from Delware. SCAM!!
Thanks for the post.
1-800-421-2110 is a valid Bank of America customer service number. Called BofA directly with a number from their website myself and asked. Got the number above from a credit reporting agency, not from a phone call.
I also did the same thing now I'm getting ready to get some type of identity theft protection. I hope that work.
Someone called and left a message at my house saying they were from Bank of America, I do not have an account or a credit card from Bank of America. When I called the number they left, 800-421-2110, I was immediatly asked to enter my card number so they could help resolve the issue.
