Is this a telemarketer?
On June 10 at 3:53 P.M. MDT, a recording said Regional Cardholder Services was calling to say there was no problem with my credit card. If I wanted to more information, I should press 9 and if I wanted to be removed from their list, I should press 8. I got mad and pressed * until the phone robot hung up.
i never pick it up. if it's on your phone just install a number blocker. i certainly did.
Someone with time on their hands should start a class action law suit which should scare these pests.
someone from this number called me, picked up , asked me if i want lower interest credit card. then I hang up on them.
Just had a call on my phone at work!There may be a problem with my account!I pressed nine and when they asked if I was responding to the Visa/Mastercard message, I said "Yes, who are you?You have just called the office of the Government of Canada."They hung up on me! I was looking forward to some fun because MY caller ID on this line IS the Government of Canada!!NO CALL LISTS ONLY WORK FOR COMPANIES THAT KNOW HOW TO READ!
Am in Toronto. Call was from New Jersey. Picked it up and did not say anything. Nobody came on the line, so just hung up.
Just got a call from 201-373-8347. Nothing happened as I did not answer, as I knew it was a fake call. I usually wait & if a person picks up I then usually give them an earfull.
some one from this number is keep calling people with answer it.
It is Saturday, May 07, 2011, and I’ve just received a call from 1-201-373-8347 at1:32 pm (13:32) DST time in Quebec, Canada. On my caller ID, it comes up as "Long Distance" along with the phone number.I'm on the Canadian DNC list, but I still get these scam calls because they originate from the USA. The problem with these fraudulent call centers is that they are located outside the country, making it difficult to take action against them and the Canadian Do-Not-Call Registry is totally incapable of blocking calls originating from the USA!I didn't say a word when I answered. But as soon as I said “Hello”, the automated voice said the usual credit card message, saying it was "urgent" that I speak to them and it follows by saying something about lowering my credit card interest rates. It is said the message so fast, that even if I am 50 years old, even I can’t understand it properly!When I pressed one to speak to a rep, a woman answered and immediately asked for my credit card number from either Visa or MasterCard. Judging from the other voices in the background, I immediately understood that this was a call center so, I quickly asked that woman to give me the name of the company that she was calling from and I noticed that she was struggling as she was saying very quickly "Advance Credit Service Call Center", when I asked her to say the name slowly and spell it out, she noticed that she was no longer in control of this call and she abruptly hung up on me. I immediately I tried to call the number back it gave a busy signal.The best thing to do is either ignore them because they often switch phone numbers so that you can’t block them or, if you are really actually bored; you could try playing a little song for them with the keys on your phone! Or even better, change your voice and make it sound very old and lead them on...just to see how far they will go! These are illegal calls, because, even if I would pay the extra money to subscribe to a digital phone service that would allow me to block their numbers, it will not stop them because; they are getting more & more devious as they change their phone numbers often.As soon as they notice a younger voice that does not comply with their demands, they hang up. These Scammers want the “Crash Bang” effect, meaning they want to attack the elderly unsuspecting into getting their credit card numbers so that they can use them for illicit activities.Even though I am in Canada and I knew the number is in the US, I pulled out a reverse phone number and got this info; the number is a land line and it actually originates from, Hackensack (Bergen County) in New Jersey. Another place said was same as above but on the Verizon Network.I don't know if this will help anyone, but by the way they behave, it confirms that this is a scam!I you live in Canada just record the calls on paper and go on the RCMP’s website and report it to them.Caller: Advance Credit Service Call Center

This number called our home phone at 2:09 this afternoon, recorded message asking if you want to lower your credit card interest rates, I just wanted to get our number removed, so I played along, pressed 1, and immediately a accented man wanted our visa or master card number told him take this number off the list immediately!Sincerely doubt that'll happen.
Area code shows up as New Jersey. I never answer it, but I get this call alot.
did not leave a message.
And oh, I also wanted to mention I tried to call THEM back and they have a block on the number!! Go figure! 201- 372-8347 is a total scam!!
Got a call from 201-373-8347 for "lower credit card rates" press "1" for more info. As soon as I questioned them about the call the caller hung up.......... it's a scam, caller ID had no name, just out of New Jersey
Free Cruise: #on ID. went to Do Not Cal site and it was down: stating that it's having difficulties??????
CAlled this number back, kept getting a busy signal-scam.don't answer.
Caller-ID said "FREE CRUISE".Caller hung up without leaving a message after the answering machine answered. I'm guessing a scam since I'm on the "Do Not Call" list.
This is a scam
Free Cruise listed on caller ID. No message.Must be scam.
The caller did not leave any message.
Getting unwanted call - am on state and federal no call lists
FREE CRUISE listed on Caller ID. Left no message.
I assume it is either a scam or another attempt by a junk debt collector to try to reach a former holder of this phone number.
Left no message. If I accidently pick it up on the next call and it is sure to happen, they will get an ear full.
Didn't leave a message
