I believe this is a scam. On Sat.9/1 at 1:24 I got a phone call with an automated woman's voice representing "credit card services" saying "your credit card" has "a time-limited offer of reducing your interest rate to 6%", then asking to press 1. I did out of curiosity and got a man with a very thick Asian accent, who wanted my name and my bank info. He would not tell me which bank or credit card company he was calling from, and got angry that I would not give him any info. He threatened that I would not get his great offer of 6% unless I gave him information that he should know if he were really calling from my bank or credit card. When confronted with these facts and asked what he was doing and if he was he a scamer, he hung up. When I tried to call back several times to speak to a supervisor, all I got were busy signals. I reported them to FCC.gov and suggest anyone receiving this call to do the same. No doubt these are either foreign scamers or a company engaged in shady business practices.
Same thing here....leads you to believe they are calling from your credit card company and puts you on the phone with someone with a thick Indian accent. Immediately knew it was not my bank, started asking who they were and said they were Financial Advising Services out of Orlando Florida. Noticing a California area code I tried to pry info out of them but they hung up. The CA number of course is a switching station. Don't be lazy and file a FCC report to help stop this activity. Phone numbers from switching stations should be disclosed as that on caller IDs. Pass a law.
First it was an automated call and then a person picked up who hung up on me when I challenged him as he implied he knew the interest rates on my card and I asked which cards?...When I called back I got a busy signal. I would like to know where to report this as someone needs to be held accountable. Where can this be reported??
I just got the same call from that CA number and I answered and spoke to a woman who said they had low interest rate offers. They asked me for some info, and tried to say that they had to "qualify me" before transferring me to the financial specialist- to lower my rate they asked me my credit limit, expiration date, credit card type and then asked for my cc #. when i told them that i wouldnt give them my info- the supervisor got on the call and he seriously told me that it was safe to give them my cc# and that they couldn't actually use my credit card- but they needed the info. to proceed wiht the offer. that's when i todl them they must take me for an idiot and that there was no way in **** i was giving them my info- then i hung up. criminal.
