I wanted to pass this on to everyone since so many people read DU, not just post.

I've had several calls from this number since Thanksgiving. It's the old "This is Credit Card Services. Please press 9 now to lower your interest rate.." It's a phishing scam. Don't answer it.

I answered once to tell them not to call my land line since I'm on the Do Not Call list. That was back in the spring and they haven't pestered me since then. But it seems they've started up again. Lots of posts from this October and now December. I did some digging and for free, I was able to find out this number originates in Berks County, PA, specifically Birdsboro. but I don't know the name of the business. My Caller ID log reads "FreeSWITCH" If they keep pestering me, you bet your sweet swindling ass I will be finding out who you are!

Messages left at say that it could possibly be used for porn calls charged to you for for a third party to use your long distance service.

I just filed a complaint with the FCC.

If you get any of these calls from "card services" please report them so the FCC can investigate. I now have a file open and I intend to report that scummy outfit every time they call.

File a complaint with the FCC:
