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.

760-242-8473 From Name: California called. Said NOTHING & Hung up. Days before I received calls from 999-910-0207 also 999029999100 & 202-688-0778. I think ALL of these are connected because they called within 4-days.

A real credit card company will identify that they are calling on behalf of that company and not ask you to call them back. Also, a real credit card company probably would not call you to offer lower interest rates. Why would they call you to get less of your money? Unlikely.

I just got a the same automated message when I answered this call. Don't call back. Don't give them any info.

TOTAL SCAM!! Automated message stating that my credit card interest could be lowered to 6.9% if I pressed 1. I pressed 1 and a male with a very thick accent (possibly middle eastern) started talking about lowering a Chase credit card rate. I told them I was at work but give me their # and I would call back tonight. Line went dead. I called the # back immediately to see who would answer and got the recording that the # has been disconnected or is no longer in service.

Knew it was a scam b/c - drum roll - my interest rate is lower than 6% - smh.

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 to talk with a representative or 2 to request "do not call". I was just about to hit 2 but the phone disconnected. Must have been a long enough pause to let them know I wasn't interested. The fact that they don't tell you which "credit card" company they're calling from should be enough evidence that it's a telemarketer or scammer.

I received a call on 12/3/12 from this number. Female represented herself as Oregon Health Care survey, asking about people/gender/age living in my household. After a few questions about my residence and phone numbers, she hung up. She knew I was growing suspicious of her questions, none of which had to do with health care. When I tried to call the number back, it rang 40 plus times, then disconnected.

Why would anyone answer an unknown long distance number? If you do you are doomed to repeated calls. NEVER engage in conversation!

VOIP phone service allows scammers all over the world to call us and they use a "spoofed" fake caller I.D. Just stay away. And don't use your name on answering machinge or voicemail. Just use your phone number, if anything.

I just received a phone call (9/11, 8:36 AM EST) from "Heather." It was a recorded message about how to lower the interest rate on my credit card (no credit card was named). She said the offer was expiring, etc. The number came from Napa Valley, California.

It is spam. I've received these before, but I do not push any numbers. I have a call blocker on my phone and I'll just block their numbers.

If you get this, I suggest reporting it to the FCC.

I received a call just now on my cell phone; it, like my landline, is on the Do Not Call Registry which seems to be absolutely nothing. I immediately hung up when I heard something about credit card account. I have not had ANY credit cards for several years. I also get these same calls on my landline. I tried a few times to call the number back to speak to someone but it is always busy. I have better ways to spend my time; doubtful if anyone can get thru - their lines probably tied up making other robo calls.

Recieved a call from this number but didn't lift for good.I tried calling from a different number and it's always busy.

I feel very bad to say that this type of fraud happening from India and Iam from India too living in United States.When I recived a call from a different number of same sort,I can notice the Indian accent but I didn't provide any information and reported to fraud department with US government.

Please beware of these cunning fellows and cheap tricks.

i just received a call from "Mr. Apple Valley, CA" and did not answer it. After googling the number and reading the comments posted here, I wish I had - I'd LOVE to lay into them - I HAVE NO CREDIT CARDS! People like this deserve a good scare. If they are from a credit card I do not have, I can pretend FBI agent recording the call.
