I have received repeated calls from this number, 206-397-1895. It is always a recording about offering a lower interest rate and something to do with the financial stimulus. Neither of which interest me. Today I pressed the number one on my keypad and received a live person. I asked to be removed from their call list and was met with a hang up in my ear.
In call back I receive an option to be removed from their list by pressing #1, which I have done several times, but the calls continue.
I wish to report this harassing call to the authorities.
They say the company is "CMA", a processor for credit card companies and want to give us a lower interest rate. In the past I have assumed they are generating leads for actual companies to later contact us. By using a marketing company, they may be able to avoid violating DNC and robo caller laws. If you provide information and are later contacted by a company, you should report THAT call to the FTC / DNC list as being connected with the original abuse.
But I am now wondering if they other message posters here are not correct about them scamming us out of our credit card information. I played along with the lady that answered and said I was interested. She wanted to make sure I had a valid credit card and asked me to read information from my card and statement. When I said I didn't have them with me she offered to call back. When I said she could give me her number, since I don't give out credit card information to people that CALL ME, she didn't say anything and hung up.
I think the scammers ARE getting more tricky, but we all need to keep reporting the abuse and scams to the Do-Not-Call list at 1-888-382-1222. It seems to take some time, but for the most part it does lessen or stop the junk calls.
And for those of you that want to mess with these people, you can try this: When you get an automated call, and have to hit a key to be connected, it works something like as if you called them. What that means is that the system that calls you then connects you to the scammer. And even if they hang up on you, your phone often stays connected and ties up one of their phone lines. Yes, you will hear a beep-beep-beep, but that is from their phone system trying to trick you into hanging up so they can free the line to make more calls. I left my phone on speaker for over an hour while working on my computer. I was able to tie up their line for that long. Finally I hung up, got their number with *69 and reported the call to the FTC.
I have had my phone number one week today and already getting spam calls! This came in at 10:40 in the morning. As I have not even given the number out I knew immediately it was not something I want to answer. This is crazy. Who falls for their c**p anyway??
They keep calling and the automated message says this is your second and final chance to lower your credit card interest. They have called and least 5 times a month. Twice today. I answer every once in awhile and get someone on the phone...as soon as I say I want them to quit calling they hang up. Sick of this.
I have received repeated calls from this number, 206-397-1895. It is always a recording about offering a lower interest rate. Today I pressed the number nine on my keypad and received a live person. I asked to be removed from their call list and was met with a hang up in my ear. I call back I receive an option to be removed from their list by pressing #1, which I have done several times, but the calls continue.
I keep getting these calls and have asked to be put on don't call list, they've said they are not telemarketers and so the don't call list doesn't apply to them. They said I have $4000, worth of credit card debt, which I don't. Then said maybe my identity has been stolen. That was this time, last time they told me to f**k off! and that's not the only time they've cursed me off and then hung up. These guys are out of control and something should be done about them!!! They are so rude and nasty and still are calling here a few times a week!!!
Please consider it your CIVIC DUTY to waste these basturds' time. Keeping them on the line as long as possible runs interference for your fellow Americans and helps minimize those who get scammed. PLUS you can have FUN in the process!
Rachel of Credit Card Services (CCS) is the FTC's enemy number one: 200,000 fricken complaints each month. Probably costs us taxpayers millions per month to process. CCS has scammed your fellow citizens out of $30 million dollars. UNCLE SAME WANTS YOU to help slow down these harassing crooks.
Here's a protocal to get you started. (NOTE: four months of not ever answering calls from numbers I didn't recognize didn't stop this nuisance. If you're getting these calls, you have been DRAFTED.) So PLEASE DO YOUR PART:
1. Play along, acting like an interested prospect. Give them fictitious data, including perhaps a combination of two different credit card numbers.
2. Be patient and respectful to reel them in. Speaking fairly slowly and clearly since these scammers will hang up on you for whatever reason (if you're chewing food, if you put them on speaker phone, if there's a slightly bad connection, etc.).
3. Upon request, I give them my credit card company's real telephone number so that they can waste their time calling while I hold.
Once they've put you on hold, YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES: a) Put them on hold to keep the line open and go on with your day or, what I love ... b) Wait to deploy the protocal's second phase.
Typically they come back on the line and want to review the info I've given them.
4. Sometimes I give them the same credit card info with two of the numbers transposed, thus causing them to call my credit card company yet a second time. They often hang up right after calling the credit card company again. HowEVER, if they're dumb enough to come back on the line (tee hee) ...
5. Then I let 'em have it (and this is the FUN part). When they say that my info didn't work, I respond, "Well maybe that's because H-O-O-O-O-N-N-N-K-K-K [from my air horn; the best $6 I ever spent] maybe you've been PRANKED! So please (now in my Cookie Monster voice) call back tomorrow if you want more bullshot. Eat shot and die, you predatory human garbage!"
The purpose of this abrupt Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde transition is to enrage and demoralize the enemy, and boy does it ever work. Oh, how it pesses them off to realize you were laying in wait, setting a trap. And NOW, hardy-har, they're the butt of your joke rather than you being the victim of their harassment. Make it apparent that pranking them is your Number One idea of an uprorious good time, which is exactly why you're inviting them to call again (which they will regardless). This actually DOES become fun; trust me. In fact, I try NOT to miss their calls. : )
Incidentally, if you get really lucky you might even persuade them to give you a REAL number at which to call them back. Then please post it here so that the rest of us harassees can call them ad naseum. I was able to shut down their operation for a whole afternoon by calling from both lines of two cell phones and three lines from each of two office telephone stations. Ten calls at once, baby, for HOURS. Then they changed that number; boo hoo. So please try to get us a new number, SOLDIER!
I bookmark them so I can sue them.After we had to get lifelock when our Id was compromised in S.C. We started getting all these calls. So we presume that even lifelock gives out info???I think any id scammers should be killed. Then after awhile the ones doing these problems will be too scared to even go HERE!
Save the earth~Death to these BAD PEOPLE!They make our lives miserable!Take away our pursueit of happyness!Our ID is our life so an eye for an eye would be like them taking our life away.Just like MURDER!Did I make my point?
I am so SICK and TIRED of these jerks calling my d**n number and as soon (if the option allows) you hit the button to take your number off their list they call relentlessly under a different number. If I had one of them in front of my face they'd be knocked flat on their rear ends. Just how many second notices are there anyway hmmm? We've been on "second notices" for 3 effn years now!
