Account Services / Telephone calls
Beware of "Account Services" calls. I have recently been getting phone calls on my home line. An automessage claims to be from Heather at Account Services about credit card / interest rates.
When asked they refuse to say who they work for other than "Account Services". When I ask to be removed from their call listings they simply hang up. The caller id number is not a valid number (last call shown on caller id as [protected] Sebastian, FL. I believe that the previous two calls came from an invalid listing in Miami FL) Given the "false" caller ID information provided it is impossible to call them back to find out who they really are or to speak with a supervisor / manager to get removed.
I am not sure how legitimate they are (they could be real, or just be complete scam artists and thieves for all I know) It is difficult to tell as they refuse to answer any direct questions, but the evidence from their behavior in consistently diguising who they really are and simply hanging up in such a manner suggests that they are some form of organized scam.
