I got a call from the credit card company to lower my interest rate on Christmas Eve.  I told them I was on the Do Not Call List and to take my number off of there list.  A foreign man kept saying wait listen....listen and I said Take My Number off and than he yelled listen you Mother F.... and I yelled back listen piss of s*** take my number off and I slammed the phone down.  I doubt it will stop the calls, but at least I had satisfaction.

Hey everyone!  Do you want these jokers to stop? Try this : The next time they call you , press '' 1'' as
instructed. Wait for their  '' phoney '' account manager to come on the line. Tell them you are '' very ''
interested in what they have to offer. Keep them on the line as long as possible.{ I once had one person
on the phone for 40 minutes }. Give them all phoney information . Let them think they have a sucker buying into their scam. Ask them to explain ''every little detail ' about their services. But be nice , so they do not
hang up on you. Then once you have played them , laugh and say '' how do you like my scam '' ?.
then hang up. If everyone did this , they would never make any money and go out of business. They use
about 20 different numbers for this robo call scam. I do this everytime they call. I never get called by the same number twice. This is the only sure way to stop them. If everyone did this , The calls will stop.

DON'T ANSWER CALLS FROM NUMBERS YOU DON'T KNOW - PLAIN AND SIMPLE!

As soon as you answer (regardless of what you try to tell them about not being interested or about being on the do not call list) they will know it's a valid number and will continue to call.

The Do No Call list only seems to work for valid businesses that actually follow the rules!  The scammers and robo-callers obviously don't think the law applies to them.

The FCC DNC has become a joke. Even when I put details of the call, i.e. number, time, caller i.d., what was said if pre-recorded, etc., I still get the calls. Some of my reports are months old, and still the number continues. I guess part of the problem is the "spoofing" devices and the fact that a large protion of the calls are from offshore lines. I am going to buy a call blocking device instead. Good luck to all of you. I'm just tired of reporting them and nothing happens.

The recording at this number is promising a lower electric bill because of supposed legislation passed and want you to press a key to hear more.  Hung up.  I believe it's just a scam.  Am a senior citizen and already qualify through the proper channels locally for a 10% discount.

How it works:
http://blog.usa.gov/post/30393077932/answering-your-questions-about-robocalls
http://onthespotblog.com/on-the-spot-blog-stirs-up-rachel-at-cardholder-services/
http://onthespotblog.com/tag/cardholder-services/

People should continually file complaints with their Attorney Generals office and also file with:
http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
If enough people keep complaining then maybe something will get done.

The calls are being made from outside the US however most of the call centers (where you actually talk to someone after pressing 1) are in the US and the companies making the money from the scam are owned by people in the US. They will charge thousands of dollars on your credit card without performing any services.

Many of these calls are coming from Costa Rica and India and they are using spoofed (false) numbers, which in itself is illegal. They do cold calling for or sell the leads to numerous companies in this country and they know that what they are doing is illegal. Tomorrow this same number may be selling Cruises, Timeshares or Security Systems but if you follow the money it usually ends up in the hands of an American LLC. Keep complaining to the FTC and FCC, and start bugging our politicians to pass laws to make it punishable in criminal court instead of handing out fines that they don't pay. Another course of action is to contact phone companies to find out why they won't block spoofed numbers. With today's technology that should be an easy thing to do, unless they are somehow profiting from the use of their systems.

The criminals behind this operation aren't going to pay attention to you asking to be removed from their list. Their calls cost them nothing and they can make a million of them a day so they have no intention of ever removing someone. When you press a key to talk to them all that is accomplished is to verify that they have a working number.
Unfortunately blowing an air horn or whistle doesn't work either. Their headset have noise dampeners plus they are expecting it. However with that said if it makes you feel better then by all means give it a shot.

For anyone thinking of using Special Information Tones (or as they're called in the industry SIT tones) to fake a non working phone number, they won't work. Since around 2001-2002, the costs of "digital" business lines have dropped dramatically, along with Voice over IP (Internet) telephone service. Neither of these use the SIT tones as the call information is carried separate from the audio.
This separate call information tells the calling party digitally if the call was answered, busy, voice mail, forwarded, rejected, etc. This renders SIT tones useless. Also the "TeleZapper" products that used to be on the market used this method as well, and were rendered ineffective for the same reasons.
It is also through this separate call information message that the spoofed caller ID information is transmitted.

Robocalls are illegal unless you have given them prior permission in writing (not worded into some small print contract from a 3rd party) and are absolutely illegal to a cell phone.  The Telephone Consumer Protection Act permits individuals who have received certain unlawful telemarketing, such as junk faxes or telemarketing calls, to sue the violator in state courts where they may be awarded up to $1500 for each violation.

Pacific Telecom Communications Group
Follow JD's recommendations in the blog and stop them at the source.

Many of the disposable numbers come from Pacific Telecom Communications Group and they are currently under investigation and in the midst of various lawsuits. (The principles involved have been part of actions by the FCC under other business names).These businesses have ripped people off for millions of dollars, yet have paid only a couple of thousand dollars in fines. The only way to stop them is to throw them in prison for a few years to make this criminal activity less attractive.

The Oregon Public Utilities Commission has revoked Pacific Telecom's certificate to provide telecom services in Oregon.

The Indiana Attorney General?s Office filed lawsuits against:
Consumer Credit Group and Proactive Planning Solutions of Arizona for violating Indiana?s Do Not Call Law and Auto-Dialer Act known as the robo-call law. Both companies violated the Credit Service Organization Act and Deceptive Consumer Sales Act by not obtaining $25,000 surety bonds with the state and collecting money upfront without performing any services.
Debt Zero of California for collecting money up front, failing to provide services or a refund and operating without a $25,000 surety bond.
Clear One Advantage of Maryland and Credit Arbitrators of Texas for violating the Credit Service Organization Act and the Deceptive Consumer Sales Act by not obtaining the required surety bonds.

Write your Congressmen and Senators. We need CRIMINAL penalties against the companies that are profiting from these calls. Follow the money, slap them in prison, no one left to outsource to overseas boiler rooms, problem solved. Since they are operating across borders it should become a federal felony and should be handled by the FBI under the RICO Act.

Got a call from this number 802 230 6357, and of course I did not answer it.  No voice mail left!  The do not call list doesn't do a thing!  It's all machine operated they dial in sequence.  1234 1235 1236 etc.  If you DO NOT answer after a while the calls will stop.  That's why it's best NOT to answer these kind of calls.  You can report the calls to the FCC and you Attorney General if they do not stop!

The goverment needs to pass legislation to stop these calls. There's too many loopholes in the existing laws and these scammers know that they're virtually untraceable.They spoof the calls which essentially falsifies any data you receive through caller ID. That means fake names and numbers that come up on caller ID's.They need to outlaw spoofing and make phone companies give the consumers the ability to block as many numbers as needed (without added cost). Why do I pay my phone company so much money and still have to put up with all of these annoying calls that the do-not-call list doesn't stop?
