The Do Not Call List applies to legitimate telemarketers and NOT these criminals at so called Card Services. These scammers use spoofed telephoned numbers to call innocent people and scam them.
The spoofed phone numbers most of the time are invalid phone numbers that dont even exist.

I had a recorded message from (954)689-7681 on June 18. The message said there was nothing wrong with my credit card, but they were calling because...
I immediately hung up the phone. Ten minutes later, I had a 2nd recorded message from the same number - again saying there was nothing wrong with my credit, but...
My caller ID said the call was coming from ARTHER BAILEY.
I am registered with the Nat. and NY DO NOT CALL LIST
Today and in the past week I received a recorded call of female voice (she said her name was Heather) about lowering credit interest rate. I am wary of and do not accept any solicitation calls even from businesses I know and patronize. The recording told me I could dial "2" and I would be removed from the calling base. I did this the first time they called this week and yet they called again today. I punched "2" and hope they do not call me ever again. It is very annoying. They are scam artists. In the past year I'd been getting recorded calls from "Dave" about carpet cleaning (also another scam). I wish the authorities would do something about these damn scam artists. GW Bush can wire tap phones etc. but he can't do a blasted thing about these crooked telephone scam artists! Something is wrong with the picture. I thought one of the things a president is supposed to be doing is to be helping to protect America and her citizens.
fast forward two years to 2010 and get the pleasure of knowing that three of these people are in federal prision awaiting trail on fraud. (google Jason James Eyers, Kara Singleton Adams, and James Adolph Schoenholz) you'll find the details of the charges and their arrest. It made me happy knowing that my complaints to the FTC and FCC did not go unheard!
I reported them to Attorney General office of Atlanta, Georgia and BBB last year. I just received mail from United States Postal Service. They are under investigation. This is no surprise to me. Had a very bad experience with them last year.
Not sure if the call I just got was from the number listed, but it was an unsolicited call, stating how they can help with credit card things (Visa, Mastercard, etc). It stated "Press 1 to speak with rep" or "2 to remove #". I typed 1.
The guy sounded like the others people report. I curtly asked who this was, he replied "Account Services". I asked him his company name, he replied "You pressed 1, how can I help you today?". I repeated my question, he ignored it and asked what I could be helped with.
Very shady character. I told him I had not called, and how he got my number (it was my work one, which I give to almost nobody). No response. After a third time of asking for his company name and where he got my number, he hung up.
What a bunch of jerks!
It also looks like VersaDebt is now going by the name "Clear Breeze Solutions" per posts at 678-741-5400.

Caller Type: Telemarketer
Phone Number Owner: auto dialer
Phone Number Report: many people are having this problem the last few weeks, the company uses automated dialers - Here is some information that some guy named Ralph posted on the company that is doing this, complaints are being spread on a number of their fake call back numbers... Caller Type: Unknown Phone Number Owner: Auto Solutions warranty division Phone Number Report: Jack - 22 Jun 2008 Important message to all those that have received a call from this number: The company making this call with an auto dialer is a known scam outfit. They spoofed a phone number of some victim in Vermont. The phone number 802-763-2141 is just another victim of these scumbags. I've don a lot of research of this company. Actually, there are several affiliated companies, owned by the same people, that try to scam innocent victims. One scam is about auto warranties. The other is about credit card debt relief. Their MO is the same. The use an auto dialer, and call thousands of random numbers. They have no regard to the do not call lists. Your demands or complaints are worthless. They will continue to call you. If they call about a car warranty, the message says something as "This is the second notice on your extended vehicle warranty. Press one now to speak to a representative..." The message about credit debt mentions "This is Account Services. We are calling to lower your credit card debt. Press one now to speak to a representative..." Here are the details of these do***ebags: Car Warranty Scam: VP Marketing 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite #A-1225 Atlanta GA 30339 Credit Card Scam: Versadebt Corp. 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite #A-1225 Atlanta GA 30339 To the best of my knowledge, their phone number is 678-238-1300 or 678-238-1351. Both companies are listed with the Georgia Department of State. Here is how you can lookup their information: http://corp.sos.state.ga.us/corp/soskb/CSearch.asp You will find that the "Registered Agent" for VP Marketing is Kelly Lonas, 224 Ripple Creek Drive, Marietta GA 30060. The listed "Member/Manager" is James A. Schoenholz at the 4501 Circle 75 Parkway address. Versadebt's Registered Agent is the same James A. Schoenholz at the 4501 Circle 75 Parkway address. There is one additional name listed for Versadebt. The listed CEO, CFO, and Secretary is named Marvin Cox, Jr. at the same address. Here are some links to prove my research: Job listings for VP Marketing: http://www.careerbuilder.com/JobSeeker/Jobs/J ... NG6X1YG4MTQKT9V http://www.careerbuilder.com/JobSeeker/Jobs/J ... marketing%22_at_ Here are some details from RipOff Report: http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/312/RipOff0312307.htm http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/301/ripoff0301144.htm And some additional details from whocalled.us: http://whocalled.us/profile/ChristineS Now, what can we do about this? YOU MUST REPORT THEM TO THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION! Here is the link to file a complaint: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm I filed a complaint against Versadebt last year, and received a letter from the FCC telling me that they are investigating! I am about to do the same for VP Marketing. If everyone that received a call from these low-life scumbags does the same, then the combined action of thousands of us can stop these crooks from scamming innocent people out of money. You may also try to write your congress person.
I can't believe that they are still in business. They have been reported numerous times.
Negative. Experian is not providing them with information. They use automatic dialers that will randomly call phone number using a recording. They once claimed to me that they are owned by Experian. This is a lie. They are owned by a low-life piece of sh** do***ebag named Marvin Cox Jr.

I got a call from this company, but using a different number. Caller ID showed it came from F. Lauderdale 954-424-9037. The told me he is based in Georgia, but the headquarters are in Ft. Lauderdale. We got disconnected and he called me back from a Gerogia number - caller ID said Versa Debt 678-741-5400. During this second call, he made a reference to HQ's being in Orlando. I questioned this as he said earlier they were in Ft. Lauderdale and he insisted he didn't say that - headquartes are in Orlando and the nearest phone towers must be in Ft. Lauderdale. You mean to tell me in all of Orlando, there are no phone towers? I asked him for a call back number, but he said the only way for me to get one is to sign up with him. I asked him for a company website, but again he said I have to sign up first before getting that. Wouldn't any reputable company want me to have all the info so I can do my homework and feel comfortable with them? I also asked him for the name of the company (even though I knew it already from my called ID but I just wanted to see what he said) and he told me the name of the company was called Financial Services. I hung up and tried calling both numbers back, but both have a recorded message that they are not in service.
You know what, f*** you. I don't even have a credit card, so you can piss right off!
hopefully someone mafia kills these f****.. cut their dicks off, stuff their dick and ball in their mouths and watches them either choke or bleed to death betting on which one. before if they are feeling merciful, they shoot them or beat them to death with baseball bat..as they laugh..
Calls are to a cell phone in Texas. Hangup immediately upon answering.
This number is on the national no call list.
Are they just trying to verify a working number or what?
I also got a call from this number. I've had at least 15 attempted scams from phone calls to letters of employment to inheriting 5 million dollars. Give me a break. I can't go to the bathroom in peace for all these junk callers.
Have "pressed 2" for the past 3 months, which, according to their instructions, means that I've been taken off the list. I just got another call. I thought there was a rule about continuing to call after the person asks to be taken off the list?
I'm on a national no call list, got an automated call from Heather, asking me to press 1, which I did to find out who was violating the no call listings. When the operator answered he asked me if I had more than $3000 in credit card debt. I asked who he was and what company he was representing, he said I'm going to hang up on you now sir, I asked him to wait and pointed out that they called me, he then hung up on me. Rude & sleazy. Not a reputable company by any streach of the imagination.
I also worked for "Debt Safe" in Marietta for about 2 days before I quit (under fear the police were going to walk in any moment and haul everyone off to jail). They dont use computers to track calls or any of your infromation during atleast the "Qualifying Stage" its just people sitting in lil cubials with pieces of paper, pens, and scripts. You have to keep a call log that your suppost to put in a little box for them to track what you actually did. I accidentally mixed this up with the small amount of paper work i had with me.So I got about halfway home before i realised i had about 10 peoples credit card numbers in my passenger seat. I turned around and went back. When I returned it and said what happened, I was told not to worry it happens all the time just dont let it happen again.
All this company does .. or well says it does.. is after they qualify you (which is short for seeing if you have $990 of open credit on your credit cards so they can charge there fee and atleast $2500 of debt) is that they will "negotiate with your current creditors to lower your intrest rate. This you can do yourself. Its not hard. And your information is alot safer.
The above information is correct.. well when i worked there about the names of the managers and the descriptions of said parties.
If you have lost money to Versa Debt or one of their telemarketers, please report it immediately to the Marietta Georgia police department.
Jeremy from Orinda, CA
repeated phone calls, early in the morning, late at night to home phone in Orinda, CA. Caller ID shows "out of area." robot message is that since I pay my bills, I've been selected for "credit card reduction rate." Obvious ploy to obtain credit card info. This morning, awakened, I hold for "Account Services." Lady finally comes on, tells me she works for "Financial Services." I tell her I am on the no-call list, ask if she can take me off their robotic phone-dialing machine. She says many people say that, and she just doesn't understand why... but she cannot give business name, phone no., or address. Says, "I do not have that information available for you at this time." She hangs up on me. I phone Operator, who says she will connect me to "nuisance calls." I then get another robotic voice (AT&T), which repeats for 15 minutes off & on, telling me to hold & making various announcements about using the AT&T website. Finally I get a lady who is absolutely contemptuous that I could ask the phone company to "protect myself," says this is a "police matter." I make strenuous objections... & suddenly am transferred to a line where another robot announces "nuisance call department." I am then instructed to press various buttons, and to await a return phone call. *This is not how I like to wake up in the morning.*
Britney Dunphy (she uses the last name "stone" over the phone) was the former 'sales floor manager" for their so-called "debt elimination package? She is now the manager of their warranty program. Kara Adams and Jason Eyer are the true owners of both companies.
They get young people with good credit to get merchant accounts (accounts used to charge credit cards) and to use as a front for the corporation due to problems they had with the Florida Attorney General (search Fyitech Financial.)
If you Google "Georgia corporation search" you will see that debt safe is registered to Jonathan Blake Curtis and Versa Debt is registered to Marvin G Cox. They are both naive young people who were paid monthly to provide the merchant account. If the money was traced, it would all go to Kara Adams? bank accounts. They also unofficially own Ride Assured Warranty/Safe Ride Warranty; you will find at least one of those companies registered to James Erich. (I believe one is a Florida corp. go to www.sunbiz.org to search FL corps.)
Kara Adams business number is 407-902-7571 Jason Eyers business number is 407-902-1950 (these are direct lines, give them a buz and chat with them if you?d like) (the 678-569-0621 numbers are not longer active) She is the person with all the control in the company. It is her decision to not pay employees, not purchase supplies to fulfill their product, (the product itself isn?t what is bad, it is the scumbags efforts to actually fulfill the service)?to sum it up, every negative thing about that company is pretty much her decision.
The sales center address for both the debt package and auto warranty package is 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite A1225 Atlanta, GA 30339. The administrative office is 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite A1270 Atlanta, GA 30339.
Scott Broomfield is the person who owns the third party company who is actually placing the calls to your phones. I do not have much information on him; unfortunately he is a little more careful than Kara Adams or Jason Eyer. He is based out of Central Florida. He owns a few cell phone stores in the Oviedo/Winter Springs FL area.
Here is a list of their acting managers to the best of my knowledge.
James Schoenholz General Manager
Kelly Lonas Admin Assistant/HR Director
Geraldine Williams Customer Service Manager
Melody Richardson Financial Planning Manager
Sean Myers Sales Floor Manager (debt)
Britney Dunphy (stone) Sales Floor Manager (warranty)
this message is for anyone who has ever worked for these scam artists. Did you ever get a W-2, if so does the it have the EIN on it. I have been in touch with the IRS and other federal agencies to shut their so-called debt relief business down. For you so=called employees still working at Versadebt, you are really as naive as the people who actually listen to that garbage you feed them to get their card numbers and money. reply to this message,
I was hired by Versadebt in October and I actually laster until Deember. I knew it was a scam and they were all crooked. That fat a hole Sean Myers was supposed to be a manager. He had the nerve to consider himself the elite among sales managers. He sucks. The whole company sucks and I want to do whatever I can to make sure no one gets caught up in that scam. If anyone who reads this reply and has the companies EIN number please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It could be most useful in shutting down the company in Georgia.
I have an interview with them so you're telling me it's horrible? Well, we'll see, i'll be back to talk s*** or i'll be calling your home phones soon.
Does anyone know if they scam people by crediting funds to their credit card?A merchant credit appeared on my statement and I stumbled upon this site while trying to research is it is another way of scamming people. I've been calling their 800 number to try to get more info, but it is ALWAYS busy.
We get this call all the time, we got it at least 15 times already in the last 3 weeks.
It's always the same message, sometimes different names:
"Hello, this is Heather from Account Services...blahblah...lower interest rate...blah"
"Hello, this is Rachel from Account Services..."
"Hello, this is John from Account Services..."
Today I pressed #1 and got a real person on the phone, who didn't answer any questions.
I asked what company this is - no answer.
I said "you call us all the time unsolicited and this is a violation of the DO-NOT-CALL-List of the FCC. Remove our number from your list".
Then he responded: "we are not selling anything, we are calling you because of your credit card".
I asked "which credit card is that"?
He answered "your VISA card".
VISA is the one card we don't have (bad guess! :-))
I told him "we dont have a VISA card".
He insisted that "there is a VISA card in your name".
Then I asked him "What is my name? Tell me my name."
He said "I will not tell you that, I am going to hang up now.".
Then I said "You don't know my name, you're calling unsolcited for a credit card we don't have. You know, what you do is illegal. Remove us from your list!"
And then he must have recognized my slight german accent and he said "You're not even from this country, I am calling INS.".
And he hung up.
