This number (786-385-5638- Florida FOP) keeps calling my father in law which is 84 years old and is not well. I’d appreciate it if they would stop calling. My mother in law does not speak English very well and they both are getting very tired of the harassing calls. Please put a stop to it. Thank you in advance.

I got a call from 786-358-5638 this morning at 8:10 AM.  I did not answer the phone but later dialed the number and listened to their message.  It was from the FL Police Memorial Fund and I requested to be put on the "do not call" list.  The message said it would take effect within 72 hrs.  I hope so because I've had many calls from this number in the past.

They called and unfortunately my 90 year old mother answered and they told her that they were a hospital and the doctor was busy and would call her back.  She thought one of my brothers or sisters was in the hospital.  When I tried to call back this number, the number was not valid.  The called ID said Florida FOP (which from a distance looks like HOP (hospital)).  How can a company use an invalid number but I can't find anything to block these stupid calls?

I just started getting these calls and what I did was create a contact in my phone with their number and named the contact DO NOT ANSWER.  I then downloaded a special ringtone for this contact that says "DO NOT ANSWER THE PHONE".  This way I just ignore them and they will give up in no time.  Just a suggestion.

I got the same calls and I am a newspaper carrier.  My number is unlisted, and I get the automated dialer thing, but they knew my name.  I believe the paper I deliver for gave the info to them.  The problem is this: They don't care about the Do Not Call Registry because the fines are so low that it doesn't make a dent in their earnings.  You can choose to just not answer, but they will keep calling until you do.  And even after you tell them not to, they will continue.  It seems we have no recourse at all.

Had the same number calling me ..... here's how to fix:  Change your number don't hand it out to anyone including family.  Get a Google voice number and use that as your NEW phone number.  Give that out to everyone.  With GV#, you can customize your incoming calls, make a call ring a different number .... BLOCK unlimited numbers, my favorite feature.  You can get GV for your Android now too.  Google keeps making this thing better and better.  And no, I don't work for them although my post seems like an ad.  This concept is the same at getting your own dot com just for the email control.  You don't hand out your main email address, you hand out aliases.  Create an alias for everything you do online i.e. newsletters / subscriptions / online job sites / Youtube etc.  You'll have a string of aliases a mile long after awhile.  But it works, my inbox is spam free now.  If an alias is sold (a regular occurrence for me) I simply delete that alias and take note to never subscribe to that whatever again.  easy squeezy.  So ... take control of your home phone with GV or continue getting junk phone calls ...... zup to you :)

This phone number belongs to the Pisa Group of St. Charles MO.  I called them on the direct line (314) 845-2825 and talked to a manager.  He wanted my phone number "in order to remove me from their list" did not want to give my number (for privacy reason and to avoid confirming my phone number) but told him I was on the national do-not-call list and he would find me there.He then told me that they were exempted from the do-not call list since they were not selling anything, only offering something for free.  This would be a coupon booklet containing "free" or discounted subscription to a local newspaper.They thus believe they have found a loophole around the national do-not-call registry.Maybee if we all start calling the company directly and repeatedly and bombard the Pisa group with complains, they will get the message?

The National Do Not Call List- Is only a list of people that wish telemarketers not to call them. It is not a list that will stop all unwanted callers. The only way to stop companies that ignore the list is to report them. I have told a lot of companies that I am on the national do not call list and if they ever call again I will report them. It is a $16,000 fine. The only groups that can ignore the list are Charities and political campaigns. One other thing can be done about any and all calls, If you have repeatedly recieved calls after telling the group you do not wish to be contacted anymore. Telemarketers, charities and political campaigns. Just inform them that you feel you are being harrassed and are being forced to seek legal council.If it is a foreign company, good luck! I found the harder you mess with them the less chance of them calling you back again. The longer you keep them on the phone wasting their time the funnier they get. ;O) I even got an Indonesian Supervisor cussing at me trying to sell me Dish Network.

you are absolutely right it is thepisagroup.com that uses 314-963-8895 and 636-935-7146.  They are telemarketers, and if you ask them how they got your telephone number they say your local paper. I called the local paper and they say that is how you got your newspaper from us . . they are our telemarketers. Then he said the 314 area code was PISA and the 636 number is actually the local newspaper so in effect they were doubling up on us. thank you for your help . . "ask the question" where did you get the phone number?  We are on the laughable DO NOT CALL feds list, and receive political survey calls; and we changed our phone number to a non-pub which is a landline/home phone.

OK, So I used to work the "The Pisa Group", that is who this company is. They handle newspaper accounts accross the country, they aren't a scam, but they are annoying. They are hired by different newspapers, ie, Oklahoma, Texas, Californina, Virginia, all over, including right here in St. Louis, to offer special promotions, and lower rates. I quit quite sometime ago, after over a year, but I recently signed up for the local paper here, and NOW I am getting calls every day myself from them, with some bigger and better deal. They have 6 locations throughout St. Louis, so although you may have told one to quit, the other office will probably continue to call. If you go to, www.thepisagroup.com , it will give you all the branches, phone numbers, and manager numbers, pitch a big enough fit, and they will take your number directly in and put you on the DNC list. If we got an irrate customer, we would hand write the number, give it to the boss on duty, and they would update the list immediately. Hope this helps some!

-   A post by “Vicky” on page 4 =I did a lot of work on The Pisa Group. The Pisa Group is a telemarketing company that violates the do-not-call registry. I also called them to have my name removed and like with all other people, they were friendly and gave me the standard answer that my number was provided by my local newspaper in Austin. Well, the Acquisition Sales & Retention Manager from the Austin American Statesman did do a thorough investigation and confirmed this is incorrect. She contacted the Pisa group and found out that this company practices "prefix dialing" and never received my information from the newspaper. Obviously, the Pisa Group is using the good name of a lot of newspapers to cover up their illegal do-not-call practices. I would encourage everybody that has been harassed by the Pisa Group to file an online complaint through the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) and also file a complaint with the government.-   My Post = I also **NOT** be calling that number  to "take my number off the list" because the REASON THEY ARE SO NICE WHEN YOU CALL TO GET IT REMOVED IS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, WHILE THEY SELL YOUR (NOW VALID) NUMBER TO SOME OTHER FOOL THAT WILL CALL YOU 100 TIMES A DAY!!!

The number is owned by the Pisa Group. They are a hardcore telemarketing company. They sell newspapers all over the country, Fla., KS, OK, Tex, Calif., NY, NJ. All their calls are computerized and each caller can make 50 - 100 calls per hour. They are located in St. Louis, Missouri and are very underhanded. They cheat their employees. They call former subscribers to the paper and hide behind the fact that you were a customer of the paper. Best thing to do is to tell them, "Put me on your do not call list and don't call again." Once you do that, if they call, it is a $5000.00 fine.

Best thing you can do is not subscrribe to newspapers or magazines. Helluva thing to say but most of these things somehow go back to your newspaper and magazines. You have extablished a business relationship with them and the DNC rules allow them to contact you. Sorry, but that is how it goes. When you cancel your subscription, do it by calling you paper and telling them why you are to cancel your subscription. Enough people do it and maybe they will think twice about using this type of firm to contact their customers. I know I contacted my newspaper and they immediaely put me on their DNC list. Since they put my number out with these people though, it may not do a lot of good.

Well, considering the fact that people have reported that they are calling about a TX newspaper and I just now received a call about it being for a local paper here in AZ and that number is from Missouri??? A little questionable. Why would a company from Missouri call folks representing multiple newspapers? I get that outsourcing is one thing but that is going to serve as a disincentive nonetheless that a representative from my local paper doesn't even live locally, let alone in the state.

OK for those of you that think the government is looking out for you, think again.  There are sooooo many loopholes in the DNC (as with every other bill that is put out by the losers in DC) that it is guaranteed not to work.  As he said if a company has any relationship whatsoever with a company you have done business with (even requesting information) then they can legally harass you.  The government will only take a company to court if they have a case that has been proven.  Who provides the evidence; why you the public, people that have been harrassed until they are about to come unglued.  Only then will the government take the company to court and of course when they win who gets the money?  Is it the people that have been harassed?  No it is our greedy, I mean needy government.I registered several years ago and my telephone did not changeduring that time but as I added to the list it seemed I got more calls.   I have since changed my number and do not answer the phone unless I know who it is.  I only get a couple of calles a day now.  Remember if you answer they know they have a live person.

Anytime you sign up for ANYTHING that you put your number on, magazine subscription forms anything that you are buying and any contest you enter that involves putting your phone number on means that company and ANY of it's affiliates can contact you, legally, this is why you have to continuously update you information on the do not call list. Every time you give you number out anywhere from 1-100 companies get to legally put you back on their list of number they are allowed to call. This is the loophole. This list has devastated the telemarketing industry resulting in lost jobs and can be linked to the economic recession. Think about letting people call you, some of the products and services are worth it and you will be helping all of America with recovering from this horrific economic downturn.

State do not call registries mostly expire periodically.I have been getting calls from "news". I recently stopped my subscription to the Dallas News. I suspect this is a service for newspapers to obtain subscribers or resubscribers and that, in  my case, the Dallas News has commissioned them to solicit me. If you have  had any relationship with a newspaper, it is possible that they avoid the Do Not Call requirements by this means, by claiming a business relationship with you. Even if you are already taking a paper (or have an online subscription), this service may be trying to sell you additional services or an additional paper. Call blocking is of course best, but many phone carriers do not offer this option (e.g. Verizon, at least in Texas). The best I have been able to do is note that caller ID says "news", so I do not answer. It is a nuisance, but less a nuisance than if I actually answer, which  is certainly not guaranteed to stop future nuisance calls from them.

BLOCK unlimited numbers, my favorite feature.  You can get GV for your Android now too.  Google keeps making this thing better and better.  And no, I don't work for them although my post seems like an ad.  This concept is the same at getting your own dot com just for the email control.  You don't hand out your main email address, you hand out aliases.  Create an alias for everything you do online i.e. newsletters / subscriptions / online job sites / Youtube etc.  You'll have a string of aliases a mile long after awhile.  But it works, my inbox is spam free now.  If an alias is sold (a regular occurrence for me) I simply delete that alias and take note to never subscribe to that whatever again.  easy squeezy.  So ... take control of your home phone with GV or continue getting junk phone calls ...... zup to you :)

I have been getting calls from this phone# 314-963-8895 and the caller ID says NEWS.  I did in fact call  314-845-2825 "The Pisa Group" and spoke to a very nice gentleman named John.  I told him I would like to be removed from a computer auto-dialer and confirmed what their company did.  Apparently they are a sales and marketing organization that solicits for some 50 odd newspapers around the country.  I gave him my phone number and he told me it may take up to 72 hrs to get the info to all the offices but I would not get further calls after that.  I did fail however to ask how they got my phone number.  Not sure he could have told me anyhow.tlc

The DO NOT CALL LIST IS ONLY FOR 1-800 #'s (877,866 etc) that is how these companies get around the DNC list.Email or call Brian Johnston at: southcounty@thepisagroup.com 314-845-2825 In the email tell them to globally remove (your #) from their list(s)Keep the email as proof of your request and if they continue to call file a complaint with the BBB and then contact the DNC Registrar to see how you can collect a fine from them.My neighbor (who is a lawyer) got $500 from them after he emailed them, kept it and they violated it. Now I hope they call so that I can collect $500 each and every time!

The National Do Not Call List- Is only a list of people that wish telemarketers not to call them. It is not a list that will stop all unwanted callers. The only way to stop companies that ignore the list is to report them. I have told a lot of companies that I am on the national do not call list and if they ever call again I will report them. It is a $16,000 fine. The only groups that can ignore the list are Charities and political campaigns. One other thing can be done about any and all calls, If you have repeatedly recieved calls after telling the group you do not wish to be contacted anymore. Telemarketers, charities and political campaigns. Just inform them that you feel you are being harrassed and are being forced to seek legal council.If it is a foreign company, good luck! I found the harder you mess with them the less chance of them calling you back again. The longer you keep them on the phone wasting their time the funnier they get. ;O) I even got an Indonesian Supervisor cussing at me trying to sell me Dish Network.

OK, So I used to work the "The Pisa Group", that is who this company is. They handle newspaper accounts accross the country, they aren't a scam, but they are annoying. They are hired by different newspapers, ie, Oklahoma, Texas, Californina, Virginia, all over, including right here in St. Louis, to offer special promotions, and lower rates. I quit quite sometime ago, after over a year, but I recently signed up for the local paper here, and NOW I am getting calls every day myself from them, with some bigger and better deal. They have 6 locations throughout St. Louis, so although you may have told one to quit, the other office will probably continue to call. If you go to, www.thepisagroup.com , it will give you all the branches, phone numbers, and manager numbers, pitch a big enough fit, and they will take your number directly in and put you on the DNC list. If we got an irrate customer, we would hand write the number, give it to the boss on duty, and they would update the list immediately. Hope this helps some!

-   A post by “Vicky” on page 4 =I did a lot of work on The Pisa Group. The Pisa Group is a telemarketing company that violates the do-not-call registry. I also called them to have my name removed and like with all other people, they were friendly and gave me the standard answer that my number was provided by my local newspaper in Austin. Well, the Acquisition Sales & Retention Manager from the Austin American Statesman did do a thorough investigation and confirmed this is incorrect. She contacted the Pisa group and found out that this company practices "prefix dialing" and never received my information from the newspaper. Obviously, the Pisa Group is using the good name of a lot of newspapers to cover up their illegal do-not-call practices. I would encourage everybody that has been harassed by the Pisa Group to file an online complaint through the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) and also file a complaint with the government.-   My Post = I also **NOT** be calling that number  to "take my number off the list" because the REASON THEY ARE SO NICE WHEN YOU CALL TO GET IT REMOVED IS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, WHILE THEY SELL YOUR (NOW VALID) NUMBER TO SOME OTHER FOOL THAT WILL CALL YOU 100 TIMES A DAY!!!

The number is owned by the Pisa Group. They are a hardcore telemarketing company. They sell newspapers all over the country, Fla., KS, OK, Tex, Calif., NY, NJ. All their calls are computerized and each caller can make 50 - 100 calls per hour. They are located in St. Louis, Missouri and are very underhanded. They cheat their employees. They call former subscribers to the paper and hide behind the fact that you were a customer of the paper. Best thing to do is to tell them, "Put me on your do not call list and don't call again." Once you do that, if they call, it is a $5000.00 fine.

Best thing you can do is not subscrribe to newspapers or magazines. Helluva thing to say but most of these things somehow go back to your newspaper and magazines. You have extablished a business relationship with them and the DNC rules allow them to contact you. Sorry, but that is how it goes. When you cancel your subscription, do it by calling you paper and telling them why you are to cancel your subscription. Enough people do it and maybe they will think twice about using this type of firm to contact their customers. I know I contacted my newspaper and they immediaely put me on their DNC list. Since they put my number out with these people though, it may not do a lot of good.

I get that outsourcing is one thing but that is going to serve as a disincentive nonetheless that a representative from my local paper doesn't even live locally, let alone in the state.

telemarketing does not automatically equate to being a "scammer" . If it is not a product you want to purchase, that is one thing. But nothing screams of scam from your description.

Your name is on a list somewhere.  Maybe from a previous newspaper subscription.  They are trying to get to subscribe to your "local" paper, not a Texas paper.

These people aren't scammers.  They are tele-marketers actually calling on behalf of your local newspaper. I know this because I actually DO subscribe to my local paper and my subscription had run out in August and they called "on behalf of the Birmingham News" to ask me to renew.  They knew the subscription that I had previously, how much I had paid for it, etc.  They aren't scammers. But they ARE telemarketers.

OK for those of you that think the government is looking out for you, think again.  There are sooooo many loopholes in the DNC (as with every other bill that is put out by the losers in DC) that it is guaranteed not to work.  As he said if a company has any relationship whatsoever with a company you have done business with (even requesting information) then they can legally harass you.  The government will only take a company to court if they have a case that has been proven.  Who provides the evidence; why you the public, people that have been harrassed until they are about to come unglued.  Only then will the government take the company to court and of course when they win who gets the money?  Is it the people that have been harassed?  No it is our greedy, I mean needy government.I registered several years ago and my telephone did not changeduring that time but as I added to the list it seemed I got more calls.   I have since changed my number and do not answer the phone unless I know who it is.  I only get a couple of calles a day now.  Remember if you answer they know they have a live person.

Come on knowstuff, telemarketers are the bane of the 21st century, why do you think the federal government got off their seats and started a list to prevent these annoying calls?  I guess people actually buy stuff from these pests, but I know of several elderly who were swindled out of money due to not knowing better and through these callers taking advantage of their naivete.Good riddance to them.  Perhaps you own a telemarketing firm, but this will cause these people, who in and of themselves are probably not bad people, to find real work.  I seriously doubt that laying off telemarketers hurts anyone other than the callers and the people making money from their actions.

Anytime you sign up for ANYTHING that you put your number on, magazine subscription forms anything that you are buying and any contest you enter that involves putting your phone number on means that company and ANY of it's affiliates can contact you, legally, this is why you have to continuously update you information on the do not call list. Every time you give you number out anywhere from 1-100 companies get to legally put you back on their list of number they are allowed to call. This is the loophole. This list has devastated the telemarketing industry resulting in lost jobs and can be linked to the economic recession. Think about letting people call you, some of the products and services are worth it and you will be helping all of America with recovering from this horrific economic downturn.

State do not call registries mostly expire periodically.I have been getting calls from "news". I recently stopped my subscription to the Dallas News. I suspect this is a service for newspapers to obtain subscribers or resubscribers and that, in  my case, the Dallas News has commissioned them to solicit me. If you have  had any relationship with a newspaper, it is possible that they avoid the Do Not Call requirements by this means, by claiming a business relationship with you. Even if you are already taking a paper (or have an online subscription), this service may be trying to sell you additional services or an additional paper. Call blocking is of course best, but many phone carriers do not offer this option (e.g. Verizon, at least in Texas). The best I have been able to do is note that caller ID says "news", so I do not answer. It is a nuisance, but less a nuisance than if I actually answer, which  is certainly not guaranteed to stop future nuisance calls from them.

This is not correct.....your registration DOES NOT expire.  Go to www.donotcall.gov and you will see this at the top of their page:  Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008.

So then she told me we can get it for coupons. Yea right what ever.. Then I told her I don't use them. She was not too happy and hung up. lolAny how, if you have call block just block the number. You don't need to have them in the caller ID to block it.

Hi Ladies,YES; these types of E-Mails are ALWAYS a scam; PLEASE don't fall into the trap--it will hurt your business!  I have been selling Avon (in New York) for many years & have come across these things before (never fell for them though).  A word of advice:  read carefully!  You will notice that the "client" never knows how to spell nor do they know correct English.  In the case with Nicole Houghton there were MANY references which raised red flags:1)  "Good to hear back from you. I'm the manager of  Houghton's sister modeling agency incorporation and photo studio ."  If this were real one would say "I am the manager of "Elle's" (Houghton's sister agency) & leave it at that.2)  "We will be coming down to your city by early April for a photo shot."  If real the person would know correct English.3)  "I would need you to get the below listed avon products for me."  If real the person would know that Avon is a nationally known company & not just a word.4)  "The quantity needed for each of the products is at the front of the item number of each "product number" and one for all the remaining items except the one in FRAGRANCE category that I need in four."  This doesn't even make sense!5)  "Get back to me with the total cost with the "sale's tax" inclusive  that I will pay for the products."  The words are sales tax, no comma.6)  A real person would not need YOUR information, would not have a sponsor to pick up the items, would not need to "continue with the order" & would never say "We would be in your city soon for a photo shoot so our crew would pick up the items themselves or meet you at a strategic point depending on your choice and preference but I only want you to have the funds in advance  so you can get the ordered product ready and secured."7)  If there really were a "sister" modeling agency there would be a name.8)  If it comes through your website the "customer" will never enter any of their information (just name & E-Mail address).I'm sure you are all aware of these things, I just hate to see anything happen.  If anyone has any questions, please send me an E-Mail (though my site); www.youravon.com/christenmann & I will get back to you.  I created a few E-Mails myself to deter scammers & have found that it works; if you are interested I'll send them to you.  All you have to do is keep kicking the E-Mails back to the scammer & eventually they will tire of the tennis match & give up!  TRUST ME & GOOD LUCK!

Got two this week, 1 from the Mitchell modeling agency in Santa Rosa Ca. and one from someone who was in United Kingdon.  Glad I checked them out and was led here.  Modeling agency rep was Deb Drake and guy in UK was Christ Walker.  Modeling agency said sponsor made mistake and put their airfare on with the money order they were sending me and that they trust that I will forward it on to them.  I told them I was not that stupid.  Same thing from the UK they wanted to add courier costs for me to pay courier.  These name were forwarded to me through Avon.

I too am a rep in Ohio who gets requests like these all the time.  The idiots don't even read the response I send them when I get the "I want to order avon" email from Avon.  I say in the email that it may take me a few days to answer emails because I work full time at the MERCER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.  The last lady I "played" with wanted my address to send the check to.  I gave her my work address & I was sent a poorly photo shopped Chase Bank check for $1,950.00 for a $195.00 order.  It was sent Fed Ex which you can't trace because it can be dropped in a box anywhere.  The person knew the check had been delivered & gave me instructions on what to do next but never pushed the issue when I didn't follow through on my end.  All they do is change their name, email address & reason for needing the products.  I just tell them that if they aren't local, they must buy from my website.

RobocallsBackground The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) places limits on unsolicited prerecorded telemarketing calls to landline home telephones, and all autodialed or prerecorded calls to wireless numbers, emergency numbers, and patient rooms at health care facilities. These calls are known as “robocalls.” The FCC recently took steps to further restrict robocalls with new rules that will go into effect after they are approved by the Office of Management and Budget (approval will be announced in the Federal Register). This Consumer Guide describes how the FCC’s rules will change, those rules that will continue unchanged that also provide consumer protections, and how you can best avoid unwanted telephone calls.The New Rules For Robocalls When the FCC’s new rules go into effect, they will impose clearer requirements for how a business must obtain your consent before it may make a telemarketing call or send a telemarketing text message to you. The new rules will require that you first give your written consent to receive such calls or messages, on paper or through electronic means, including website forms, a telephone keypress, or a recording of your oral consent.Another change is that telemarketers will no longer be able to make telemarketing robocalls or send texts to you based solely on an “established business relationship” with you. You may establish such a relationship when you contact a business to ask questions or purchase something from a business.The new rules will also require telemarketers to allow you to opt out of receiving additional telemarketing robocalls immediately during a robocall through an automated menu. This new requirement means that you will not have to hang up and make a separate call in order to stop further telemarketing robocalls.Continuing Robocall Consumer Protections There is no change to the prior consent requirement for robocalls and texts that are not telemarketing. These include messages regarding school closings or those containing flight information. You do not have to give your consent for these calls to your landline home phone. However, your oral or written consent is still required for these types of calls or texts made to your wireless number.What Can You Do to Protect Yourself? Under the TCPA, the FCC, along with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), established a national Do-Not-Call list. Placing your home or personal wireless number on the list prohibits telemarketers from calling, unless you have given them your prior expressed permission to call, they are exempt from the rules, or they have an established business relationship with you (an exception that will be changed by the new rules). To register a number, go to www.donotcall.gov. Complaint Procedures If you think there has been a violation of the robocalls rules, you can file a complaint with the FCC at https://esupport.fcc.gov/ccmsforms/form1088.action?form_type=1088C. While the FCC cannot award monetary or other damages to consumers, filing complaints allows the Commission to investigate violators. However, in some states you are allowed to file suits against telemarketers and receive monetary damages for violations of these rules.For More Information For more information about the FCC’s rules protecting you from unwanted calls and faxes, see the FCC consumer guide. For information about other communications issues, visit the FCC’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau website, or contact the FCC’s Consumer Center by calling 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322) voice or 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) TTY; faxing 1-866-418-0232; or writing to: Federal Communications CommissionConsumer and Governmental Affairs BureauConsumer Inquiries and Complaints Division445 12th Street, SWWashington, DC 20554.http://www.fcc.gov/guides/robocalls

U "kinda think" it's a scam and u don't even have a credit card account? If someone robs u but isn't wearing a bandit mask do u kinda think u got robbed? These "people" that do this aren't even "people". They're motherless scumbag thieves! Since they are able to steal with impunity people get mad. Yell at them, waste their time, insult them cuz that's the only consequence they will have.

Just got this call and they left a voicemail. It was an automated voicemail saying there were no problems with my current accounts but to press 1 to discuss lowering current interest rates or press 9 to stop receiving calls. I called them back and got this same automated message so I pressed 9. Hopefully that stops the calls but I doubt it will. I'm kind of thinking this is bogus since I don't have any credit cards at all.Some of you need to settle down. Yelling at someone just makes you seem crazy and if I was the person calling, I would hang up on you too. I know these calls are annoying but screaming at people doesn't solve anything, obviously.

Credit Card scam has been calling me for years, every week, every month.  I report them to the FTC Do Not Call List...doesn't do any good. After pressing 1 and getting an agent, I yell in their ear to tell me their whole sales pitch because I'm recording every single word of it and will use it as evidence when I file a report with their states' attorney general.  By then they've already hung up. CAN'T SOMEONE PLEASE STOP THESE ANNOYING IDIOTS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I keep getting calls from this number about twice a month.  I do not answer because I know that it is a scam.  I am on the do not call list so not sure why they keep calling.
