Glad I never answer these calls. Get about a dozen a day.
Hang up call...
Complete B.S. They want to "verify" your card number to "lower your interest rate". Sounded like someone in India.
Visa was on the caller ID. Robocall about lowering interest rates on a credit card. Fourth call this month. Did not give an opportunity to opt out as some other of these calls have done.
By the way, I tried to call back the number that showed on the caller ID, which said "Nextiva", but the number, which was 213-814-0685, just reached a phone company message that said the number was disconnected. I looked the number up and discovered it was for the actual phone company from Scotland called Nextiva. Definitely a scam, and I almost got caught!
They called and had part of one of my card numbers. They knew how much my balance was and my most recent payment. I tried to pin them down on their information and location (no accent at all) and the male caller said Florida. The initial discussion seemed honest enough, with them providing me with information that made it seem like they were legit. They told me how much credit I had left on the card in question. But when I asked how much the fee was and the new interest rate was going to be, the response was "no interest rate change", but coincidentally, the fee would be just under what I had as available credit left on the card in question. How convenient! In the meantime my wife looked up the number the new kid had given me (said he just started today, so he couldn't really answer a lot of my questions) and my wife yelled from the other room "SCAMMER, HANG UP, Don't tell them anything more!!!" We called our card company and had the card cancelled within 10 minutes.
I answered with a very slow "hello". They hung up on me!
Spam - Visa card. I' ashamed of them.
"Cardmember Services" is back in business folks. Same scam as before. Same robo-calls. I keep blocking the numbers, so they can only call me once. Don't say anything, just hang up. Pressing any number 'to stop receiving calls' simply confirms that a live person answered, and they WILL keep calling you.
I called the 800-847-2911 and got through to VISA. The woman I spoke to claimed that they had received many complaints about the calls and were working with the phone companies.
BS or not your guess is as good as mine.
CHECK OUT THE CALLER ID SPELLING
Bad news credit phishers
How do we get rid of them????
DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFO. Got a call from 8008472911 lady said Hello Miss I am a senior reduction specialist and we may owe you a refund. I said no name. She said Jennifer. I said company name? She said UNITED CREDIT FOUNDATION. I told her I guarantee if I look it up it is a scam. She hung up. I called back, got an Asian woman who asked if last 3 of phone # was 911 and I said yes. She said they don't make outgoing calls. I said that is the only way I would have the number. I asked where they were located and she kept saying, we are visa. I told her to stop and finally asked her when you go to work where is the building you walk into? She finally said Phillipines. I told her I do not deal with Indians and Asians, too many scam artists. THIS IS NOT VISA. THE NUMBER FOR VISA GLOBAL ASSISTANCE IS 1-303-967-1090. THEY ARE AWARE OF THIS SCAM AND ARE WORKING WITH THE FTC AND LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Scam/spam involving Visa cards. This is NOT the lost/stolen/fraud dept. of a real card issuer.
id comes as visa lose-stolen
call for lowering rates on credit cards....calls often with different numbers...enought they need to be stopped
the 800-847-2911 none stop callig! even told them DO NOT CALL befor check the list couple time, and report to FTC, Simply not useful!
Didn't answer; no caller identification; continuum of calling
called at 345pm on 8/2/11 to reduce credit card rate
Calling continually, I have no debts!!~!!
automated voice blast call regarding rate reduction on credit cards.
Trying to stael credit card information
A "Visa" telemarketer??? I'm on a NO CALL list how come I'm getting calls??
is there anyone who knows how to get a lawyer invalded and let us sign a partison against these crapy peaple. because as many of us know there are a lot and i mean a lot of older retired one's that believe this and get everything taken away from them. Please let me know if someone can find one.
My caller ID also said "toll-free call." The woman told me shoe worked for the Qualification Department for Visa and MasterCard (yeah, right, she works for a department that is run by two competing companies). I kept on trying to get more information from her, but eventually she hung up on me.
They called me at 12:08 in the morning, when I answered cursing, and saying that I was going to report them,they never said a word. I had no idea who they were but, NO 800 number should call at that time. Caller ID just said TOLL FREE CALL.
Caller ID shows "VISA 1-800-847-2911". Judging from this web page, this must be a phishing attempt to get my credit card or other info.
I got a recording about my credit being okay and to press 3 if I wanted to lower my rate. i punched 3 and didn't get anyone. I then hit the zero and got nobody. I hit the 9 and didn't get anyone. My caller I.D. display said unknown caller. I have already reported them to the Do Not Call Registry, because I confirmed that my two credit card companies are NOT doing this calling and they do not use a recording. So this place is a hassle and has caused my elderly mother worry so I have reported them. REPORT ALL recorded calls to the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. Even if you have not registered with them you can report a complaint about a call that comes in as a recording and there is no live person. I hope these people go to somewhere very hot when they pass away and then their punishment would be to receive phone calls of a recording every second of every day for the rest of eternity.
Called and I answered, not voice or automated attendent responed, or a person. Called twice. One right after the other.
My caller ID came through with this number: 800-847-2911. No one on the phone. This call after I had just used my VISA card to charge a magazine subscription. I called VISA company at the number. No charge had yet appeared on my account They will monitor my account for charges. I checked the phone number out on internet, found it was for the VISA Global Network. Called the number and it was for VISA Global Network. Hang up when you see this number appear on your caller ID. It is a scam.
Just received this message - automated. Came up on my caller ID as Visa Lost-Stolen. Called it and it was Visa Global Customer Care Center. The message was they would lower my credit rate, but I won't give out my number to something like this. I live in Indiana and am on a no-call list for things like this.
Visa lost scam
It is a scam, all they wanted is my card number. When I asked who was calling they hung up on me, I tried calling back and it told me the number had been disconnected.
Keeps calling and when you answer i's either a dial tone or dead air.
I was called on 10/18/2010 at 8:19 PM call came up unavailable, I did not answer the call, no message left on my answering machine.
this telephone number came thru 10/7/2010 from 800-847-2911. First part of message garbled, but it was about rate reduction, etc. I am with others, what if elderly folks feel they have to answer these bogus tripe calls, I am on a no call list, but it does't mean a thing. There are more crooks than legal folks.
We keep getting phone calls from this number telling us they're from Card Member Services, and they want to lower the interest rate on our credit card. They never mention *which* credit card they want to lower.
This number called me on my new cell #. I only give my cell out to close family, schools, etc. as we are in the middle of a genuine medical situation with my young daughter, plus this same daughter has a life-threatening condition. I was waiting on 1 of 2 surgeons to call me back at the exact time they called, so I picked the call up immediately. When I heard a recording "Do you want to reduce your credit card rates...BS...BS...BS?" I wanted to scream!!! I hung up immediately! I waited until I got home & called the # which called me to tell them (actually scream at them) to remove me from their calling list immediately!!! So, I called the # & it said it was VISA (just plain VISA). So, I dialed 0. The man was very very nice. He said that the # I was put through to was VISA's lost & stolen credit card department. He said they have many complaints. He said some fraud is using their # to place these calls & get people's CC info from them. He said they are working with the telephone companies to try to stop this. He apologized over & over for my inconvenience. He really did seem genuine. It seemed to be the truth. Bottom line...there isn't anything that can really be done. The next time they call, I'm going to ask to be removed. Although, I'm sure these AHoles won't. We'll see...I'll post if they call again!!
this caller wants your private info. i suspect it is a scam
Iuse my computer to block out all unwanted calls. these days they only get one ring and it's over for them. I pay for my phone and do not allow it to be an open door for any of the harassements coming from all over the world, they don't even get to leave a message. free program from net fixed it all for medon't put up with their invasion........block them out !!
Same number, same scam. I have not talked to them but they have left messages on my answering machine! I too am on no call but to no avail. I just worry about some older adults that can believe this type of thing.
Caller ID was
When I asked for the company name, he said "card services" I asked for a phone # to verify who they are, he gave 800-847-2911. Then when I asked him to stop calling and that I have told them that at least 6 times, he said that was a fake # and hung up.
Got a prerecorded message to press 9 to lower my interest rate. A man who called himself Shawn Williams came on and proceeded to tell me about laws changing on 1/1/10 and that this company serves as a "third party representative" for the card holder to reduce interest rates now before the laws change. They wanted to know if I had credit card debt of at least $5,000 and had I made payments on time for the past 6 months. They wanted to know what banks my cards were from. I wanted to check on this, so I told him that I was on my way out. He offered to call back, but I asked for his number to call when I was ready. I then got 18008472911. I asked for the company name and he said they were Credit Card Services (hesitation) of America.
Wanted to lower my interest rates on my cards. Call came from
I'm on the do not call list!
"Heather with Account Services"
This caller wanted credit card information to lower my rate.
They keep calling and wanting to lower my % rates and just need "the highest card I owe on, am paying on time for, and that I owe more than $4000 total. Fishy.
Say they are "Account Services" and want to lower my % rates. Lady had a foreign accent and wanted to know info about my credit cards and %. I didn't giver her anything except my name and my total debt and average %. Then she got weird.The 1st time they called today, it said "name unavailable", but the call id said "212-000-9876". The connection was bad. She called back on the 1-800-847-2911 number. It must be a scam.
phone rings, no answer on other end.
Scammer more likely, same guy that called 2 hours ago from
800-847-2911 really is a legit Visa number (http://www.visa.ca/en/personal/lostcard.cfm).
The guy at Visa told me that they are trying to document this group so they can shut them down.
The number they gave you really does go to Visa, but Visa said that is part of how they are avoiding stuff. If you can't act right now or want to talk to someone else, they give you a legit number for Visa, so when you call it you don't think anything. Then when they call back later, you think they really are a legit group.
Claims that my time is running out and must press "9" to lower my interest rates. I spoke to someone and told them I do not have any credit cards, I'm on the do not call list and they hung up on me.
Exactly same as others below - have received this call on work & home numbers, automated recording supposedly about MC/Visa cards. Asked for account numbers. When I told the representative that my number was on the do-not-call list she first gave me this number to contact. When I asked to speak with her manager she swore at me and hung up. Called and they told me they never called customers, and I was mistaken, that I should never give out my card info and they wouldn't ask for it.
Possibly these folks -- at least the reporters have found them, can the authorities catch up?

Gave Vermont zip code and Florida city and Calif. as the state!! Who are they?
On the list stop the calls
Card Services in Phoenix
We are on the "No Call" list yet we are getting calls from this number unsolicited.
There was a call offfering to reduce my intrest rate on my Mastercard or Visa card. I do not own a Visa card. Needless to say I just hung up, I figure it was just another scam.
This company called claiming they could reduce my interest rates. BEWARE! They demanded my credit card account numbers along with the security codes. I demanded to speak with a supervisor. I had to ask at least 4 times before I was transferred. The supervisor then got rude with me when I told him he was a scammer and told me he would come F*** me tomorrow. What authority can I file a real complaint with?
Visa Card offering low rates
Visa Card low rates now
Called to offer "lower rate on credit card balance".
Claims to have my personal info.
I am on do not call list.
They tried to get my credit card information. SCAMMERS!!!
mis-representation of who they were. attitude was trying to be intimidating. in these times they are using scare tactics. I found them offensive and hung-up on them.

rate reduction call - I have no CREDIT CARDS.
Automated call, press 9 to lower my credit card rate. Some guy, "Jeff Mills," claiming to represent VISA and MasterCard picked up, offering to lower my credit card interest rates. Of course, I wanted to play this through to see how much they knew. I confirmed my name, zip code (they were close on this one, but not right on) and card bank name and the toll-free number on the back of the card, which I gave. I stopped at the expiration date: I did not give the date. He said he couldn't help me. I asked for his name and number in case we got disconnected: "800 VISA 911" (800 847-2911). Smelled like a scam. I immediately called my credit card company and they said they sometimes make these offers, but never through a third party, only through their own marketing department. Phew! Hang up! Complaint to FCC filed.
Account Services -- for Visa/master card -
Get a call almost every hour
Computerized calls from Card Services states press 1 for CC rate reductions, press 2 to terminate your eligibility. These calls occur at least once daily. Pressing 1 puts you in touch with person who states your CC issuer has nominated you for a rate reduction. However, they cannot state which CC issuer did the nominating. Operator states that to be removed one should press #2. Pressing #2 does not get one removed from telemarketing list. They further state that a person agrees to such phone contact via the small print in CC contract and that consumer would know this if they in fact, read the fine print. Repeated requests to be removed from Card Services list goes unheeded.
Calls to reduce interest rates and claims to be Visa and Master Card service center
Similar style of call as reported by many people already. These are today's, so far...
Wed Apr 1 09 12:17pm - robocall left msg on answering machine. 1:43pm - same robocall - pushing 1 got to a person.
I asked what company he is calling for. He told me Visa and Mastercard. I asked the caller's name. He said his name was Michael Samuels (he would not spell it for me, saying it was the regular spelling). I asked for his phone number. He told me his phone number was 800-847-2911 (that is Visa corporate's #, but obviously he is not from Visa).
Refused to put me on their do-not-call list. He said they do not have a do-not-call list because there is only a federal do-not-call list. I told him I was already on it and that they should not be calling me... I asked for a supervisor and he said he is the supervisor. Tried over and over to get the name of the company he's working for and could only get from him that he's working for THE Visa and Mastercard company. He would not tell me what specific bank he was calling me about in regard to my account, etc. You've all heard the garbage over and over and over... He was argumentative, aggressive, etc.
A few days ago I actually got a woman on one of these repeat calls who apologized profusely (after I told her about their previous rep. who kept calling and hanging up on me), and said she would put me on their do-not-call list.
It does seem (probably an illusion) that if I actually answer the call instead of just letting it go to the machine, that I don't get as many of these for a few days.
have called my cell phone 4 times and will not stop. don't know my name or # what a load of crap

The recorded msg said to say on line and someone would be with me regarding my warranty. I asked for the caller's name and number, she said Whitney 800-847-2911. I then told her I would be reporting this because I was on the "do not call list"
"credit card services" - says press 1 to speak to someone and press 3? to stop receiving calls. i've pressed 3 several times b4 and they still call. thank you teddy (below) i reported them.
Received a call just now (03/09/09) at 11:48am Central Time. A message said that I was being called regarding "my current credit card account" and to push 1. When I did so, I was connect to a male who asked me whether I had $3,000.00 or more owing on my credit card. I asked him who he was and what the name of his company was, and he said "You have failed to answer the simplest question on my list. You're an idiot. Get off my phone".
I get three or four calls a week from these people.
When I tell them to stop calling me, they hang up.
I finally led one of them along and she gave me the 800-847-2911 number.
How do we put a stop to these people? She said the name of the company was Card Services and she was in Florida.
Visa Mastercard Rate Reduction
name given was Eric and he hung up when I did not answer if I was on hold for rate reduction
Claimed to be the Customer care Center for Visa and Mastercard and a representative authorized to give lower rates from the banks. It surely seems a scam and i am on the do not call list but keep getting the calls.
This is a SCAM!!!!! They do not represent Visa or MC.
THIS IS A SCAM don’t fall for it there is no way Visa or MC will Call you to lower your rate Your bank may lower your rate But not Visa or MC.they don’t set the rate that you pay they Only charge the merchants for the service
DO NOT GIVE THESE
THIEVES ANY OF YOU INFO THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY
I keep getting calls from a company that claims to be called Card Services. This is the phone number the telemarketer gave me, but this number seems to be a legit Visa number, not the telemarketer's number! Each time they call, I ask to be placed on their do not call list. They have hung up on me several times. Today they told me that they cannot by law stop calling me! I know that's not true, but the telemarketers believe what they are told.
Another scam, the same number, the same urgent' If you don;t do it now, you last chance to lower your interest rate. Same number 1 800 847 2911. Block them out.
Visa Mastercard selling.. said it was Visa Mastercard International
Told me that I had a credit card with VISA and that it had been opened 9.5 months ago. Stated that her name ws Barbara Lewis and gave me an extension of 261 to return call. I asked for the last four digist of my SS# and she gave me a number that was only one off. Also an address. The phone call was at 10:19 a.m. and it was to one of my landlines which is used was previously my fax number which is unpublished.
If you are called by this company, please fill out the simple online complaint at the FCC website here.
Unlike the wortheless DoNotCall website which relies on your lazy State Attornety General do something (which they won't), the FCC does take enforcement action. The FCC acts quickly and you will even get an acknowledgement letter in the postal mail in about a week or two.
I was called by a local business for over two years and my DoNotCall website complaints did nothing. I even sent a postal letter to my State Attorney General asking why they weren't enforcing it. Their office replied telling me to file a complaint at DoNotCall.gov. Gee, that's what I did for over two years and it did nothing.
When I filled out the FCC online complaint form, the calls stopped and have for more than two years. The company was warned first by the FCC but they kept calling so I kept complaining to the FCC. After a few months I got a letter from the FCC saying they took enforcement action and I haven't heard from the company since.
If you want, keep a log of the calls so when they call in the future you can show this on the online complaint form. I just email myself the quick details with the date, time, and number of the telemarketer and keep it in a Do Not Call folder in my Yahoo mail box.
Super Rude! Claims to be Mastercard Visa card services. SHOCKINGLY rude-- especially Angel, agent # 5101.
after reading several sites about this phone number which is actually a visa number they are just giving out, i think these people are phishing the US for cc numbers and info. maybe if we all just give them made up info and waste their time they will get a clue... the problem is that there are too many people that believe they are trying to help them and are giving them cc and ss info. if people would quit buying things over the phone and thru spam then we wouldn't get stupid phone calls and full inboxes.
these people have no concept of what breaking the law by calling me means. i am apparently the one that does not understand what being on the do not call list means. they are trying to tell me that it means they can call once and i have to ask nicely to be removed! the last person i confronted was probably from this company too he had the gall to tell me that I CALLED HIM! this is just nuts... glad my daughter wasn't home to hear me cussing at this lady, "be nice" my a$$. if she wants people to be nice to her she should get a real effing job.
Recording offers final chance to reduce credit card interest rate or removal from offer. This final offer has been going on for over a year and continues almost daily, night and day. Attempts to stop the calls have failed. Message offers press 1 to speak to customer service but that person hangs up on you as soon as you request they stop calling.
they have been calling me for a month and hang up when i don't give out information. They will not stop calling. They have told me they are with consumer services and also they have said cardmember services. They gave this number: 800-847-2911.
Said she was with Card Member Services with rate reduction offer. When I got callback number I informed her that I was on the do not call list and that I was going to report her. The response was "you go right ahead." She got 0 information from me as I know that Visa & MC do not do cold calling because they cannot affect individuals' rates. She used an IP phone because the fake number was "062 269 3193" which is a miss-type of an "appropriate" phone number for my area code. I called the 800 number and informed them of the scam. The 800 number tried to retrieve my account number and bank/branch which I did not give. Only after several "invalid entries" did the automated system default me to a person. There was no option to speak to a representative.
Caller ID said "Credit Services" said she was a rep for Visa and Mastercard and was able to lower my interest rates to a fixed 6.99 on as many cards as I had as long as they were in good standing with credit amounts available. She wanted the 16 digit account numbers and the phone number to the credit card company that carried the card. I told them that I was skeptical about giving my cc information over the phone and asked for her number to call her back once I checked them out. While i was talking to her i googled the phone number and saw that there were approx 500 Federal Trade Commission complaints on file and many consumer complaints. In a time where people are worried about high interest rates, people are most vulnerable. Someone should put a stop to this fraud.

"Seth" called from Rate Reduction Company. Approximately a dozen calls have come from this source. The number is on the federal do not call list. Doesn't matter.
These folks have been calling me for maybe a year about credit card rate reductions. Pressing 2 to be removed doesn't work for me, either. Today was a nice young lady, but usually they hang up when I ask who they are. Like some of you, I carry no balance on my card but played along anyway. Thanks to those who recommend contacting local DA - will do!
I have received perhaps a dozen recorded voice messages from this company. The last few times I called back to get info on the company making the calls and to ask them to take my name off the list.
Twice, they hung up when I asked.
The last time, I managed to get through to a manager. Her name was Rhianna (last name I think was Lewis). She identified the company as United Financial Services and gave me the business number 1-800-847-2911.
Then I told her I had received many calls from her company, that I had asked to be removed from the list, and that I was on the Do Not Call Registry.
She hung up on me.
I am on the Federal Do Not Call list and these dolts are calling me.
1-800-847-2911 is their number.
What does the FTC (F**king Telephone Chumps?) even do when complaints are filed?
Unsolicited mobile phone call
This 800 # was given by tele-marketers. It appears to be a legitimate VISA service center that was given by unscrupulous tele-marketers.
The phone had caller id
No matter how many times I've pressed "2" to be removed, they keep calling!! This has been going on for over a year!
Operator claimed ignorance of Do-Not-Call and claimed that I (as the call recipient) am being monitored for security purposes via recording of the call.
Has anyone got anything that can be used in court?
I ready to take them!
'nadia' was the name she used, wanted last 4 digits of my soc, card number of at least one card with at least $800 still on it ("not too close to limit"), & the cards 1-800 #. When I said it sounded like a scam ( i am also on the dnc list) she claimed nothing fraudulent could be done with the info anyway, & yes, even though they have called repeatedly for a while now, it was "the last day for this offer". The phone # she gave me belongs to visa at several diff locations around the country. I told her to call back later, but I knew it was a scam, googled the number while I was talking to her. Usually when we answer the 'unknown name', it hangs up. My husbands cell sometimes says unknown, or I wouldn't have answered at all! STEER CLEAR OF THEM!!!
Received an automated call, and entered 1. Talked to "Christy Rowland"? and she told me she could reduce my credit card interest rate. So I her number and address; Card Services, P O Box 594, Chuluota, FL. She wanted my credit card numbers. I told her I would call back. I lied, this is a scam.
Call constantly with last time to reduce your interest rate on all your credit cards.
got an email from visa stating possible fraudulent activity. they gave an case id number and then gave me a website to go to. the website gave the above phone number and a lady with a hispanic accent asked what bank it was from. i didn't give bank info but told her my case id number and she gave me phone numbers for equifax and another credit bureau but didn't help me. the site looks real so watch out.
Automated message told me they were a rate reduction company(Suspicious from the start) and could reduce my credit card interest rate to 6% fixed.So I pushed number to talk to someone about lowering my rate so I could find out who they were. I spoke with Muriel from 800-847-2911 I asked the name of the company she sated Visa/MC cardmember services baltimore, MD. She wanted my credit card number(s) and other details. I told her I was uncomfortable giving out my information and I would call back at a better time.
This is a scam. My phone number is unpublished and unlisted.
Automated message told me they were a rate reduction company(Suspicious from the start) and could reduce my credit card interest rate to 6% fixed. Yeah, whatever. So I pushed 6 to talk to someone about lowering my rate so I could find out who they were. A man with a faint accent I am not familiar with got on the line and asked me if I was on hold to speak to someone about lowering my rate. I said ,"NO, I want to know who you are. Who is this?" and they hung up immediately.
Susie called me from this number 800-847-2911, or at least that's the one she gave me. She wanted to reduce my interest rate on my credit card from 14% to 6%. She wanted my credit card number and other details. when i hesitated, she told me not to worry about anything, since i will not be liable for any fraud even if it happens, and this is my golden opportunity to reduce my rate in these days of faltering economy. I asked her the name of the company, which she said is cardmemberservices. she did not know if they had a web site or not. i went to the website and found it was First USA bank in delaware. When i asked her if she was with that bank, she got upset with me, and cursed me that i deserve no help from them and should be stuck with high interest. Then she said she did not want to waste her time with me and hung up.
In my opinion based in what they have told me, i think they are harvesting credit card numbers and using for some fraud, do not ever give credit card number to anyone who calls you.

First a prerecorder message just like the others. I am on the do not call list. The live person hung up on me when I started to ask where there company is located.
Unknown Name/Unknown Number calls repeatedly (often once per day and even at night) and either says that they want to lower my interest rates on my credit cards, lower my auto loan rates, or extend my automobile warranty ("Just press 1 to speak to someone about..."). I always press 1 and ask for company information or to be removed from their call list, and they always just hang up on me. Today I pressed 1 to talk to somebody about lowering my credit card interest rate, and pretended I was interested. I spoke to an operator who said her name was Whitney. She told me their number (800-847-2911) and said their address was Suite 300 W Peachtree, Ft Meyeres FL 23906. She said they just needed my credit card account information and they would lower my rates. She said that they are affiliated with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express and with all banks. I asked to talk to her manager. He said his name was Mike. When I asked how they found out about me, he said they got my number from Visa and Mastercard because we have a very high credit score and good payment history. When I asked him why his system often called us at night, he became agitated, asking what that had to do with me getting a better interest rate. I asked him if they used the Do Not Call list, and he became very upset, speaking to me in a rude tone, and insulted me for having "nothing better to do with my time." Then he hung up on me.
They have called me several times. I said to stop.I asked to be removed from their list. They said they would.*69 failed to give me the return number.-----This number is for Visa lost cards. I called it. Visa does NOT haveany personal information - only the bank does. So "Consumer services" in Florida is a bogus operation. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION!!!Visa is aware of this scam. Try to get their actual phone number!
Telemarketers name: Joann Paige
Am getting 3 to 4 calls a week for me to upgrade my credit card the calls are recordings.
Automated message begins, "Do not be alarmed! Press 1 to lower your interest rates.." Connected with a live agent, but she refused to provide details on their company. Asked to talk to a supervisor and she forgot to put me on mute, so I overheard her asking around if anyone wanted to play being the supervisor!
I spoke to the "supervisor" who said they don't give out addresses. He provided a call back number (800-847-2911), which appears to be a number for VISA. This company is sketchy.
I am writing this second post to put more information about
I called this number talked to someone, and from what I can tell, it seems that this is a legitimate VISA number for reporting lost/stolen credit cards, at least according to
Readers, please verify for yourselves. The problem is some other telemarketing company in Costa Rica and elsewhere that is giving out 800-847-2911 when one starts inquiring deeper about the business.
The VISA people appreciated my call and took down the Costa Rica number 506-2297-9244. --SSS
Recorded message came on my cell phone, and I clicked "1" to find out who was calling. Upon inquiring, the real person answering said he was with "Card Services" based in Wash DC and gave the 800. The call originated from Costa Rica with the number 506-2297-9244
Two phone calls. They are very rude harassing and hang up on me. I am on the do not call and they will not take me off the list. I cannot get info to sue them.
Exact same call other complainers have mentioned. Even though my phone number is on the Do Not Call Registry, AND I have no Visa/Mastercard, "Val" from "Visa" was calling to lower my interest rates, she just needed my account numbers.
It appears that they are calling from Costa Rica. The number that called me was 506-2208-4283. I aksed them to give me a number to call them back, and they gave me 800-847-2911.
I pressed one and asked to be put on a do not call list. I was told they cannot do not do this, but I can call customer service at 800/847-2911 and ask to be put on the do not call list. I was told that I ahve to mail in my request.
Rep claimed company name was "Client Services" out of Raleigh NC.
When I noted the fine for calling a DNC number, rep stated "YOU are the one who pressed 1 on the automated call to connect with me; you REQUESTED this call." He hung up on me when I asked his name.
Yep same as SomaCat. But when I pressed I was told to write to an address in Framington, MA to request removal from their list.
Final notice acct manager
Asked me about my credit cards.
Said they send letter from "Consumer Services."
I asked for, and he gave me the number 800-847-2911 to call.
I get about 4 such calls per month on my DNC listed number.
Caller tries to get your name, credit card number, amount of debt, credit card number, and last 4 digit of social security.
I too think this is a scam to get your credit card number.
The only enjoyable part was I played along, pressed 1, told them I had $5000. in debt, etc etc (I don't carry a balance on any card) and wasted 15 minutes of HIS time before I blasted him for being a scammer!
He was pretty upset. I figure if I keep doing this, they'll quit calling me.
Same as all of the rest of you. Rate reduction, press 1 to speak to operator, press 2 to remove number from list. Pressing 2 never works. Pressed 1 - got hung up on a couple of times, was reassured my number would be removed, warned them I was on the Do Not Call and was actually told I probably wasn't and should check and make sure. Spoke with a supervisor "Maria" who said that they work with over 500 Visa and Mastercard agencies and that each of those agencies have their own call centers with their own "lists", which is why we get repeat calls. Yeah, right!! I don't have caller ID, so all I could get was the 800 number, which is a customer service number. Found an online article from North Carolina that this appeared as a common identity theft scan there. Also a answers.yahoo post that the number on their caller ID was 442074898133, which may not even be a US number, or a falsely generated number somehow to hide THEIR identity.
the call says 'press 2' to be removed from our call list, I have received many calls from this number and I 'press 2' for each call,,,, I continue to receive calls from this recorded message.
This is a real phone number to call VISA to report a stolen card. Pretty clever identity theft scam to give the REAL phone number of VISA. If you have called ID, please get the real phone number and call your local police and report that phone number to the FCC, FTC and your state attorney general.
Prerecorded message asking if you want your interest rate reduced on your Visa or Mastercard. Press 9. Argumentative lady answered the phone "Rate REduction Company". I asked her if that was the name of the busines and she said "Yes" and gave me this phone number to call back. I agree with Adrian that this seems like an identity theft scam. REported to FCC and FTC and CA State Attorney General.
This is the number that I was given to call back if I had questions regarding an interest reduction scam which originated from
this company keeps calling even after I have told them I am on the national do not call list. I was able to get his name and call back number. they want to lower my intrest on my credit cards. I have received about eighteen or twenty calls from these people.
