Phone Number Report: Complaint About 240-210-7016
Saturday morning at 11:00 AM Eastern Time, on October 4, 2008, I received recorded call that said they were calling from "Card Services" to lower my interest rates on my credit card, and this offer would be expiring so I better act now. The call said to press "1" to speak with a representative. Intuitively sensing this was a scam, I wanted to find out all the details. So I pressed "1" and was immediately connected to a female representative. I asked what bank she represented and she said "We're Card Services and we represent all 777 insured FDIC insured banks." She asked me if I want to lower my interest rate to 6% on my credit cards. I said yes, and said I only do business when I receive the offer in writing and asked her to send me the details. Expectedly, she hung up - because this was probably some rip off trying to steal social security card numbers credit card numbers.
