Caller name: Card Services

Caller type: Telemarketer

THE BAD NEWS: Card Services calls aren't going to stop anytime soon.

THE GOOD NEWS: You can retaliate, reduce the misery, and even have some fun.

RETALIATE:

Waste these turkeys' time. Keep them on the line by acting like an interested prospect. Give them bogus data, including a combination of two different credit card numbers, scrambled Social Security digits, and a modified ZIP Code. Important: provide a credit card company's real 800 number.

After they call the credit card company, you can give them the same credit card info as before with two of the numbers transposed, thus causing them to make a second verification call. Or you can respond, "Guess what ... H-O-O-N-N-K-K [from a $6 air horn] you've been PRANKED! Call back tomorrow for more bullshot." Now they're the butt of your joke.

REDUCE THE MISERY:

Landlines. Enroll for the free service at nomorobo.com. Simultaneous ringing, a free feature many providers offer, enables nomorobo to receive, answer and, after one ring, automatically hang up on nuisance telephone numbers.

Cell phones. Block the number, an option that becomes available on the iPhone if you click on the "i" on the right in the list of recent calls and scroll to the bottom. Unfortunately, Card Services will keep calling from new spoofed numbers, which eventually should motivate you to retaliate.

HAVE FUN:

Turning the tables on the perpetrators with mischievous deception and the news they've been duped provides instantaneous vigilante satisfaction. Plus you serve your fellow call recipients by slowing down this evil operation's efforts to defraud them.

This is a Credit Card Services scam operation. I was successful in getting the caller to call me back from a different number and thanks to some sleuthing was able to learn who is behind this scam.

Here is the information:
Futuretech Financial, Inc.
Principal: Mr. Ralph J. Brunton (President)
Customer Contact: Mr. Dave Pippin (CEO)
Ms. Barbara Niles

Consumer's Financial Institute, Inc - 121 S Orange Ave STE 1500, Orlando, FL Another number of theirs is: (877) 504-3577

The best way to get back at them is to report them to the Federal Trade Commission: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/ The more people complain the faster these criminals will be held accountable.

Noted many have posted their grief for various reasons.

208-295-6840 is listed as a "Junk Caller" for me and is transferred over to a number that is answered with a greeting saying the Number is not in service and there is no new number. It's my way of trashing the calls and working on dropping my personal number from THEIR calling lists.

Here is some information to help some people from getting "scared." IRS does not originate Law Suits, someone in the IRS merely sidesteps the judicial process and moves only the real Tax Cases to a "TAX COURT" which operates differently than criminal courts. Arrests are only made on the those who actually know they are doing Tax Fraud and have been at it for several years. Each case is identified only by the YEAR it relates to AND your signature has to have been on that document (Civil Law). Any mention of arrest has to be performed in writing and signed by a real Judge (not some attorney acting as a judge and definitely not an IRS Agent or even a "Special Agent of the IRS").

The things to ask for when you get a caller "claiming" to be the IRS is:
1) Their Full Name;
2) Their Official Title;
3) Their IRS Bond Number; and
4) Their call back phone number with direct extension number.

If they refuse to offer any or all of this required information, then you can be assured that the caller is NOT a legitimate IRS Agent. When you DO receive all of this information, call the IRS Phone Number listed for your area and verify that Agent's information. After that, call the Agent back and arrange to meet with him/her with your Tax Attorney to discuss the TAX YEARS in question.

99 percent of the time, it is a crook trying to deprive your of your personal property (such as your money, credit card information, banking info, etc.).

If they continue to call you and you know the information they have provided is manufactured to appear to be real, your answers towards them is:

(WRITE THESE DOWN to keep by your phone)
1) Sorry I cannot work with you, the information provided is not verifiable (and continue to stay on the line. Do NOT get rattled. Hold your ground.)
2) I am listening but so far, you have not stated anything that is relevant for me to act on. (Use this when they keep talking and asking you for personal information. Again, hold your ground and don't get rattled or raise your voice. You have to sound like you have no emotions at all - because evil feeds on this.)
3) The information you are asking for, is non-relevant. (Repeat #2 when being pressured for personal info.)
4) I am sorry you feel that way. (Say this when they start getting angry - it means they have lost control over you, BUT NEVER GET ANGRY WITH THE CALLER - just hold your ground by staying on the line as long as possible with them.)

The idea here it to get the Caller to GIVE UP calling you again. Even if they say things to berate you and/or threaten you - you have to sound DEAD TO THEM. This is the most effective means to waste their time because the "Level Of Difficulty" was raised much too high for them to cope with you. When THEY are frustrated with you, they are in pain and pain is uncomfortable to them. They will move on. When they hang up on you, You won that battle round.
