Manitoba, Canada. Missed a call from them, no message left. So irritating getting these.
I just got a call saying I won a Trip to Florida. This is the fourth time they have called and I have asked them to stop but they obviously do not take no for an answer!!!! I am going to find out who owns this phone.
Let me know if you know who it is.
called / no msg
My Telezapper got them! Yah!
got a call in N.S. canada from this number. wasn't home was sleeping as i was sick never even heard it ring! no mssg left either
This number calls and a recording states you have won some kind of trip...I didn't stay on the line to hear wether there was a number to call back...I assume it is a 900 scam.
just got a call.
I want to know which person Name is behind this number?
Which person is behind this number? Family Name?
Man with a very thick accent, perhaps India or Pakistani, claimed his name was John Smith and was calling from Visa or MasterCard company about a $700 charge on my card from California. I asked which card as I have both, he couldn't tell me. I asked which bank, he couldn't tell me. I hung up. He called back asking why I hung up and I told him because I don't know why he is calling he again repeated that he was John Smith and he was calling about my Visa or MasterCard and to tell me about the $700 charge..... I asked again, which card and he couldn't tell me. I asked which bank and he said "Uhh, Chase?"
He wanted me to approve the charge, I said no. He wanted to verify my statement information and last payment and asked if I had my card, I said I didn't. He said go get it. I said I would need to go find it and asked for his phone number, he said he didn't have that information. I said goodbye and hung up.
I have pretty much the same story. Phone rings, I answer, blah blah blah about lowering my interest rate. When he asked me to "verify" my cc number, I told him I wouldn't give it to him &, if he was calling from Card Services, he should already have my number (I knew he didn't). He continued to pressure me so I said politely "No thank you" and hung up. He IMMEDIATELY called me back and said "why did you hang up on me". So I asked him if he would give me a lower rate if I did not give him my cc number. He continued his sales speech, I asked him 4 more times and he wouldn't answer and was getting ticked off at me. I kept saying this is a yes or no answer question and repeated my question. He continued to talk about the deal but wouldn't answer the question so I finally hung up. I am also on the do not call registry. This company apparently doesn't have to abide by it.
I received a call - automated, saying to press 9 if I wanted to lower my APR. An Indian man answered and was very polite, until I refused to give him my credit card number. I said I'm not comfortable giving that over the phone, and said goodbye and hung up. They immediately called back, asking why I hung up. I said I was not giving them any personal information. He said he wasn't going to ask for it, just needed my account information to give me a lower percentage rate. I then asked "Yes or No, you want me to give you my credit card number." He answered no, then yes. I again, said I wasn't giving him my numbers and told him I was on the National Do Not Call Registry. He then became argumentative, saying, just give me your information. I again said I wasn't giving him anything and I was hanging up. He said, "If you hang up, I will call you back, and keep calling you back". Then we got into a heated discussion, and he ended telling me to "[***] off, you [***] [***]". This is absolutely out of control. Will someone please catch these people??????
So, I get these calls from Financial Services all the time. This time was a little different. Same Financial Services bs. I hit the button to speak to a rep and requested to be removed from their call list (yeh, i know it's useless). He (in an Indian accent) asked me to hold while he transfered me to that department. After a bit on hold, he came back on the phone asking if I wanted to lower my interest rate. My lunch was still cooking, so I had a few minutes to play. So, I said, "Sure!" Then he asked how much I owed. I made up $1800. Then he asked if it was visa or mastercard. I claimed Visa. He asked if I had it handy, and I said, 'No...Can you wait?. " He said, "Sure!" So I put the phone down and went to finish making lunch. After about 5 minutes or so, I went back to the phone and he was still waiting. I admitted I was just kidding and would not give a credit card # over the phone. I know he's a scammer and I've kindly asked many times for them to quit calling me. Then I hung up. He called right back and used my name and asked me how old I was. I refused to give any personal information to him but he pressed for my age. So, I hung up.
I report this to the FTC and my state's attorney general, but I have yet to hear of anyone who has gotten an iota of assistance. Wish we could put the kabosh on these yahoos.
My parents got that wonderful call, from a guy who said he is with Visa/Mastercard wanting to lower their interest. I live next door and luck would have it I happened to go over at the right time. However when my father gave me the phone to speak to them, I asked what is the name of the company all he would say is V/M - no bank name. Finally he said Bank of America - and I told him they did not have a BOA cc- he said ATT and then the guy verbally screamed at me - cursing - calling me a F****ng B**** Wh*** Sl** and so on, I just want to lower their rate for a one time fee of $600+. Of course being the hot blooded Italian that I am, I gave it it right back to him and he hung up. I immediatley called the CC company - they did not authorize such a call and we cancelled their CC. So, since they are not the first to receive such a phone call - what can be done about this?
SCAMMERS! Someone calling to verify credit card information, (that the company should already have) and says they want to take about "lowering interest rates." Called credit card company to double check and no surprise, it was not them. DO NOT give out your info to these scammers. They are targeting the elderly as well. They call every hour and do not seem to get the message.
same as all the above. First call was from 567-248-4400. After asking my wife for our acct number I took the phone and started asking them questions. Looong story short I told them I wouldn't be interested, thanked them and hung up. Two return call hang ups 321-999-0000 and 176-753-9440, then the 176 again and they almost demanded to know why I didn't want their deal. I hung up. My wife as we speak is on the phone with Chase. Run screaming!!!!
Got a call from this number and a woman asked me for my age, I would not give the infromation because the person they were asking for was not me. They would not take my number off the list although I'm on the do not call list. After repeatedly asking her to please take me off the list and refusing to provide an age she said "Just give me your age what does it f**king matter" I asked to speak to a supervisor and got a guy named David who "promised" to take my name off the list and handle the matter. Yea sure... I'll get another call tomorrow. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE ANY INFORMATION!!
The same person called today(Nov.11,2010).Had the same story about lowering my interest.He ask for info on my card.Just remember this ,if a call comes from a credit card company they already have the info the need! I hang up on him he got "T"off after three hang ups. Call your card company and report this caller ASAP.
I too received a call about the same thing as Mosey. However, the first call was from 408-490-2920, and led me to believe at first they were from Chase. After a few questions of my own I realized that this was a gimick and they were really not from Chase. I told the man on the other end that I was all set and was not interested but thank you anyway and goodbye. Then they called back two more times from various numbers ie: 321-999-0000 and another one that came up unknown name and number....BEWARE this is not right.
The guy just called me back , unknown caller and I hung up. A few seconds Sanyo Braun called and left a message on my recorder calling me a stupid mfer. He was right about one thing I was stupid.
