I got a call. To my Google voice number. A lady asked for me to call back to discuss some interesting offers.
Funny thing is: I do not live in the USA. I am not an American. I haven't been to the US in 5 years. I do not even live in that continent. Please tell me how this is not a scam?
And the icing on the cake: She used the fake name I provided for my google voice.
SCAM SCAM SCAM
burst my eyeballs
quit your frickin yelling, these call center people act suspicious, so people are suspicious of the calls. Doh!

Who do these calls represent?
I got a call from 877 733 5734 saying they were with FIA card services and asking about my credit card. I called the 800 number on the back of my credit card and waited through the options then asked for a service rep and that call connected me to FIA card services. Turns out they're a company that handles past due accounts and customer service for Bank of America.
Not an account manger either
If they don't like they can get new jobs? well, if you had a job and paid your bill you wouldn't have to be looking up missed calles from them.
Who are you talking to? Call them yourself.
Thank you for the info. Just went a round with "David" who sounded like "Samir Nahinanijob." Requested no more phone calls and only got phone number from him--no address. Thanks for your answer.
Is there any way I can make them stop calling? I've received two calls in the last half-hour...
And I should mention, I don't even have a credit card with Bank of America it is an old Sallie Mae backed unsecured loan, and again, I am not in the least past due and have in fact been paying more than the amount due.
I am not past due on my account and they are calling me and I refused to verify my information. They refused to tell me what it was about, just that they needed to talk to me about my account but couldn't tell me anything till I verified it.
Received call saying they were BoA and needed to verify info. I know ALL my rights. If they continue to call, they themselves will receive correspondence from the postmaster general.
Small caps, please.
Got a call on my cell phone ( !!!!! ) today from an "Asia" at 877-536-1584 asking me to call back at 877-733-5734. Said it was about my FIA Card Services through Bank of America. We still have a land line and only give that number out.
I called back and got a "Karen" who told me the same thing. Said she needed to verify my husband's full name and date of birth. I said, "why?" She repeated the same thing, "I'm with FIA Card Services through Bank of America." I told her I never give that information out over the phone and why exactly was she calling?
She then hung up on me.
I received a call from a Robin Griffin who was representing this agency. She became very irrate and argumentative when I refused to provide her with the information she was requesting. When it turned into a yelling match, I asked to speak to her supervisor, John Sergeant. He was not much better. They will not provide you with corporate telephone numbers in order to persue complaints, nor will they transfer you to that office. I found it very amusing that Mr. Sergeant stated corporate telephone numbers were private, but was offended when I refused to provide them with my telephone and address. They are very evasive and hostile when you refuse to cooperate with them. NEVER give personal information to anyone that calls your home. BLOCK THEIR NUMBER!
If you are calling people @ their jobs, you are harrassing them, bottom line. Maybe the economy is bad. Maybe people have medical bills or want to feed their family. Maybe BOA eats people alive with fees & holds your money in pending status & lets overdrafts occur when they shouldn't. There's a lot more I could say, but what's the point? Maybe you are just another BOA shill.
I had surgery reciently and was having problems getting paid for my sick leave from work. Therefore, I fell behind on my credit card payments to Bank of America. I was embarrassed about this, and did not answer when they called. They did call me at work, and that was what pushed me to call them back. I am sorry that I did not call earlier, as the person on the phone was very nice and understanding. I'm sorry that I can not recall her name, but she was very helpful in helping me find the right program for me to pay my debt. Once this was set up and the next payment was scheduled in the computer, the calls have stopped. If for any reason I cannot make that payment, all I have to do is call them back (with 24 hours notice) and they can adjust the amount down to an amount that I feel comfortable with. Even though I was embarrassed that they called me at work, I do not know if I would have called them back if they didn't. And it was "much ado about nothing" as I encountered a very knowledgable, pleasent, and caring person to help me handle my situation.
Also......if they are rude or demeaning how can you ask to speak to a service manager when they hang up in your face???? By the way, it is not my problem that I won't give you the card number over the phone. It is yours. If I am overdue on an account that I owe you money for and you have called me on my cell phone knowing my name..........HELLO!!! If you don't know what account you are calling about why the hell should I?
I got a call from them today as they left a message on my cell phone. The woman identified me by my full name and asked me to call back regarding a "business matter." I did that and got an automated voice asking me to enter the account number that I am calling about. Well, how should I know as it was not identified in the message left for me. I waited through the automation and it sent me to a person who asked for my phone number. I gave them the number they had called me on. She asked for my name. I gave her my name as they already knew that when they left me the message. She said, "Please hold." I was then disconnected. I called back. Went through the same thing and got a man who then asked me for my birthday as well and then my account number again. I said, "I don't know what account you are calling on and will not give a card number over the phone." He said, "It should be on your card statment." I told him, "Which one? I have more than one card." He then told me, "It would be one you are past due on." I told him that to my knowledge I have no accounts that are past due and that I have no problem helping him but will not just start giving him random account numbers. He said, "I can not see what you are calling about unless I get the information." Well, I was not going to do that. As far as I am concerned I feel that if you already knew my name and called me on my actual phone number requesting that I call back......well, you should be able to identify why it is YOU CALLED ME. I am not going to give you random card numbers over the phone when you have my name and phone number. Identity theft is too prevelant and what moron would do that? Well he said, "I guess that is your problem if you won't give me the number. You will see it on your statement." AGAIN....not giving out random credit card numbers to some random voice on the phone. He yelled at me and hung up in my face. I called again and went through the automation and got a lady who asked for my name and phone number. I gave her that. She said, "Please hold." Then, disconnected. I called my credit card companies (I have two cards). Card #1 was up to date with payments. Card #2 was Bank of America and we were not reported as overdue but our last payment was sent in $14.00 short of the minimum payment required. Not sure how that happened and actually that was sent early and have not even gotten to the end of the grace period. So....if Bank of America was calling about $14.00 and using a company that was that rude and truly obnoxious then WOW!!! Unbelieveable. Truly absurd. If someone called you that knew your name and phone number about "an important business matter" would you proceed to give them random credit card numbers so that they could figure out why the hell they called you in the first place??? Pull your head out of your a**!!!! By the way, Bof A does have a right to collect the debt that is owed to them. They do not have the right to harass someone. the system could be much more efficient and useful. The three people I ended up speaking to on top of the 4th person that left me the message.....all 4 different associates.....TOTALLY USELESS COMMUNICATION that probably cost them more than my piddly $14.00 was worth.
I definitely agree here. This is a scam because I received the exact type of phone call and wouldn't provide any information. I got them to provide the call back number and then immediately called back BoA and had them run a check on all my accounts. They were all fine. THIS IS A SCAM....DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION. Keep the numbers that they give you and report therm to BoA security department.
Got a call from someone from FIA "regarding account information", asked to verify address, etc. Said I would not, gave me this number to call back. I called BofA 800 number, but what was strange, was that when the customer service person asked for mother's maiden and SSN digits, I said I just had a question and the representative just hung up on me...that made me really question this call.
They told me they were Bank of America and a supervisor named Shiree
Whatever happened to the DO NOT CALL list? I sign up for it every year but they seem to get my number anyhow.

I received a call yesterday from "Bank of America" (?)saying I was past due $283.00 which must be paid by January 28th - having had problems already with this Visa company I said this could not be true. I never use my Visa Card # any more; am just paying off the balance. After discussing this for 5 or 10 minutes he checked (?) with his supervisor. Bank of America had returned my Sun Trust check in early November (I received a letter dated November 27 saying the reason was becasue they did not take copies of checks. This was NO copy....I sent another Sun Trust check which they seem to have no record of. Today I notice a charge on my December Visa of $149.95 from Easy Saver. Called them; alked to a young lady named Kemba who said she would cancel the order and gave me an order #----. Google says this company is a rip-off and I believe it. I have never ordered a catalog from anyone and certainly not for $149.95. What can be done about company rip-offs?? I am a senior citizen who retired from banking and do not appreciate being duped.
Do not give any info to these no. Its a scam. They do not answer Bankofamerica credit dept. They DONOT EVEN SAY HELLO. They just want your account info. I am definitey reporting them.
Also here are more nos. to beaware of. 404- 345-1084 and 954-473-7000.
got a message today I believe a little before 5:00 pm on an ansuring mashine that said they were from Bank of Americard services and to call back at 8777335734 at extention 28903 did not get name have no caller ID. Should I contact someone for the call back, to possibly trace. I will not call unless someone tells me I should in order to get them.
Received a message on my machine stating it was Donny Romo from Bank of America card services, please call us back at 877-733-5734. Called them back and they wanted me to verify my info...it sounded phishy, so I said no you tell me if you have the correct information. They gave the wrong address and wrong middle initial. I said do not call this number ever again.
I called the real Bank of America to see if they were trying to contact me, tney were not...it's a total scam.
