I just received one of those “Hi this is Sarah from card services” calls on my cellphone where the automated messages asks you to wait to be connected with an operator so they can tell you about how they can reduce your credit card rates. My call came from 386-479-7686.
The message was very similar to the one Rachel used to call with. “Hi, this is Rachel from Card Services calling about your credit card account. It appears that you are now eligible for a significantly lower interest rate on your account. However, this offer is about to expire, so please press 1 now to be transferred to a live representative who can assist you in securing your lower interest rate.”
So I thought, hell yes I’d like to be connected with an operator. Let’s find out who this company is who is making these illegal calls. When I was connected with the operator I politely asked who the company was, and the dude instantly hung up on me. LOL.
It’s a scam.
So if anyone gets one of these calls, please ask the operator what company they are with and post that information and the number they called from in the comments below. Let’s work together to catch Sarah.
