This number called me to on 1/21/13 it came up as 1 (616) 613-2220
Zeeland, MI. I got some info in the mail from a credit card company I wonder if they are one and the same. I am tired of getting these type of calls every other day. What a waste!
Caller name: none given
Robo Call: this is your 2nd and final call to lower your interest rate. The problem is, it isn't the final call. I have been getting these for months. I pushed 1, which is how you speak to a person. But they will not identify themselves, nor will they give the name of the company they work for. Only tell you to call your credit card company because they do business with the credit card company. I am on the national no call list; which apparently doesn't work against robo calls. Really fed up.
Getting this call all the time also...call the number back and they have a prompt to get your number removed.....will it work?...don't know...just did it 5 Min. ago....I'm onThe Do Not Call list.....obviously that doesn't concern them.....keep reporting these jerks

This scam is to drive traffic to web sites. Google the number and there are several other scammers who will charge to 'look' up the owner. Also, they drive so much traffic to their web sites that companies like Subaru will place ads on their pages. It is like the glass installer that can drum up business by breaking a few windows. Notice that no one has bought anything from 616 or even know what the product is.
I'm guessing on the fraudster part. I never answer any calls that I don't recognize the number and rely on a message if it is something that requires my attention. I am regestered on The National no-call list as well as my State no-call list and I always report the call to them. If they can discover who they are then they face fines upwards of $10,000.00. Anyone reading this should register your phones (Cell included) with these agencies and report all unsolicited calls including the robo calls. Over time we will see a halt to these stupid greedy callers.

CID said Card Services. I never answer any call that I don't know who is on the other end. This is yet another number for Rachel and her gang. They never get an answer here but they keep on calling.
Caller name: Robo Call
I never answer numbers I don't know especially from a city I've never heard of, Zeeland, MI?
They left me a recording on the voicemail offering to help me claim my share of the stimulus credit. Whatever that means.

Probably a scammer. Robo call warning me it was their 2nd and final offer for lower credit card interest rate. I pressed 1 and spoke to an operator. When I asked what company it was, she said it was the "qualifying department for VISA and Mastercard" and quickly threw in "ballpark, what are you paying every month on your credit card?". I asked again what the name of the company was and she said "I already told you, didn't you hear me?" When I said there was no such thing, she argued with me. When I told her I had asked several times to be removed from their call list, she informed me I could NOT be removed. What a crock. These people are insufferable and don't care a bit about the DNC list.
I received a call from 616-613-2220 on 2/04/2013. Since the number was long distance and had no business calling me on my cell phone, I did not answer. These people have no right calling and using up my minutes. If I choose to seek out their product or any other product, then I shall do so. I don't need scam sales people calling me any time.
Robocall: "This is your 2nd and final call about your credit card. To lower your interest rate..."
I live about 30 minutes from this place. I'm strongly considering a visit because I've been getting these calls at work, home, and on my cell phone. If it wasn't illegal, I'd consider a flaming bag of dog c**p on the doorstep of this guy's place!
Seriously, I wouldn't mind seeing this place busted for calling me - I'm also on the Do Not Call Registry.
The FCC has temporarily halted 7 minor unprofitable boiler rooms who will receive a slap on the wrist and be back at it within a few days. In the meantime the calls will continue since they are making money with what is called a CNAM revenue-sharing program through companies like http://www.telephonemanagement.net and http://www.CallerID4U.com
In their own words: 'Every day your company makes thousands of outbound phone calls. Every one of those calls generates revenue for many companies, why not yours? Our CNAM revenue-sharing program helps you make money every time a Caller ID request is made by a phone carrier. A high-traffic call center can lose hundreds to thousands of dollars a day to phone carriers by allowing them to charge for access to your own data.'
You can now see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. They are making money even if you don't answer the phone. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them.
