they called my bosses cell and I answered on his behalf. Tried to press 1 to talk to someone but the line went busy. I figured I'd send a text that did go through, so 701-264-5001 is a cell phone.. Maybe we should all sign up for nonsense stuff and use their phone numbers so these spammers get harassed...:)

hate these people. they will hang up in your face I'f you ask to be taking off their scam list.
lower your credit intrest%
They call from multiple numbers
credit card rate scam
(Aware of the scam, I pressed 1 to 'lower my interest rate') Me: Hi, I feel really proud to be selected for this service, what makes me eligible? Him: Being a fucking faggot. I always find it funny to mess around with these type of calls, but that response was jarring. I didn't expect it.
OH yea that was the same one 701-264-5001 he called me and I played along with his game then when he realized I was on to him he called me every nasty name in the book really bad He's and they have got to be stoped
If you want to stop it at the source: http://telemarketerspam.wordpress.com/ How it works: http://onthespotblog.com/on-the-spot-blog-stirs-up-rachel-at-cardholder-services/ ... http://onthespotblog.com/tag/cardholder-services/ We need CRIMINAL penalties against the companies that are profiting from these calls. Follow the money, slap them in jail, no one left to outsource to overseas boiler rooms, problem solved. Since they are operating across borders it should become a federal felony and should be handled by the FBI under the RICO Act. These calls are coming from call centers in Costa Rica and India and they are using spoofed (false) numbers, which in itself is illegal. They do cold calling for or sell the leads to numerous companies in this country and they know that what they are doing is illegal. Tomorrow this same number may be selling Cruises, Timeshares or Security Systems but if you follow the money it usually ends up in the hands of an American LLC. Keep complaining to the FTC and FCC, and start bugging our politicians to pass laws to make it punishable in criminal court instead of handing out fines that they don't pay. Another course of action is to contact phone companies to find out why they won't block spoofed numbers. With today's technology that should be an easy thing to do, unless they are somehow profiting from the use of their systems. Robocalls are illegal unless you have given them prior permission in writing (not worded into some small print contract from a 3rd party) and are absolutely illegal to a cell phone. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act permits individuals who have received certain unlawful telemarketing, such as junk faxes or telemarketing calls, to sue the violator in state courts where they may be awarded up to $1500 for each violation. http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/robocalls/ http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2012/07/robocall.shtm http://transition.fcc.gov/cgb/policy/TCPA-Rules.pdf http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/donotcall/mediacenter.html People should continually file complaints with their Attorney Generals office and also file with: http://www.fcc.gov/complaints https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov If enough people keep complaining then maybe something will get done. The FTC has already taken action against some of them however they just pay a small fine and are back at the same scam the next day: http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2012/02/afl_financial.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2012/02/voiceblaze.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2011/12/roycox.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/03/voicetouch.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/05/robocalls.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/12/robocall.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/09/twi.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2011/02/robocall.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/05/robocalls2.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/12/jpm.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/06/asiapacific.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/donotcall/mediacenter.html http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2012/03/asiapacific.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/08/voicetouch.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2011/11/sonkei.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/05/ams.shtm http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2011/01/khalilian.shtm I will say it again, we need CRIMINAL penalties against the companies that are profiting from these calls.

I agree with anomous. These Robocalls have to stop and our Government centainly doesn't seem to care about enforcing the DO NOT CALL LIST and protecting our right to privacy. As pointed out, these outfits are posting false caller ID's and I cannot believe those Bozo in Washington supposedly can't do a thing to prevent it. That is bull!!! If we could find Osama or the FCC could fine a TV network for a minor "wardrobe malfunction" at the Super Bowl; you can't tell me that they can't trace & stop these kinds of calls to the innocent general public here in the USA that are being bombarded with these unsolicited calls. If anyone knows the names, addresses & phone numbers of these scammers; please share it with everyone. That we will have some specific information to pass along to our Congressmen. Otherwise just reporting this number to them or the US AG will only get you a nice form letter.
as far as having "phone companys" block phishing scammers #s that is a joke at least with my cell T-Mobile, I called them and told them my problem, they misunderstood me and charged me an extra 5 bucks saying something about family plan, no no, I said I just wanted to block the #s I gave them. It's bad enough they are charging me more and more, but any way I finally got that charge dropped but still didn't get phishers blocked.
Here is something that might work for smartphones. http://mrnumber.com/ There’s no charge to use Mr. Number as your app for texting, calling and blocking calls. Mr. Number Caller ID is also free if you agree to share contact information. If you choose not to share contact information with them, you can purchase Caller ID for $9.99/year or $1.99/month.
leave me alone
leave me alone or I will file charges
keeps calling and when i call back to put my number on the do not call list it says the number has been disconnected.
how do they keep getting away with this bull**** scam. the Missouri atty general sent out a letter outing this as a scam.
Received numerous calls about lowering credit card interest rates from an unidentified "company". When I got through to a person and asked to be removed from their call list, the phone was slammed down in my ear. The person didn't give me his name or tell me where he was calling from. SCAM!
I wish they would give up!
