Strange Calls

SCAM CALLERS

I’m not sure why this is increasing lately on my cell phone, but I am getting calls from a company called “card holder services”.

The automated voice says “Hello. This is Rachel from cardholder services. There are no problems currently with your credit card account but it’s important that you act fast in order to reduce your interest rates.”

And then she goes on to say, “Please consider this your final notice. Press 1 to talk to a representative about lowering your interest rates or press 2 to receive no further calls.”

I hung up. This is the 8th call in over two weeks I’ve gotten from these bozos. Because that’s what they are, scammers.

 

I did some research and found a few things.

 

  1. There’s a Facebook page called “Oh how I loathe cardholder services”
  2. These use different numbers all the time so you can never tell who’s calling you on your caller ID
  3. And finally don’t bother complaining to your phone company, they can’t do anything.

 

I did try this after the 3rd call and pressed 2 like a bunch of times to receive no further calls, except that didn’t work.

Does anyone know the company behind these calls?

Do you guys get these calls? Surely I’m not the only one!

 

MAYBE NEXT TIME WHEN THEY CALL I’M GONNA TOTALLY WASTE THEIR TIME AND PRESS 1 AND HAVE A STRANGE CONVERSATION WITH THE CALLER.
