Phone Number Report: Richard, who identified himself as a representative from Financial Protection Center, in Georgia, called on 22 Jan 2008 about lowering my credit card payments. He said they would negotiate with the CC companies on my behalf. After I said I was interested in hearing more, I was transfered to Artie who told me he needed my information to discuss how much they could save. Like an idiot I gave it to them. Artie told me that it would cost $1600 to work on my behalf and I told him I needed to think about it. I was then transferred to the manager (I didn't get his name, but he was very rude). The manager told me that if I declined, I was not eligible to negotiate a lower rate for a year. They were very pushy. I told him that I was interested, but wanted to look up the reputation and reliability of the company. He said I had to decide now and if I hung up without saying yes, I was declining. I told him that I couldn't say yes without looking into his company and he said "enjoy your debt" and hung up on me. I now have to call all my cards to ensure that no charges are made. Someone needs to put a stop to these people! I too am on the Do Not Call List. How are they getting our numbers?!!
