Credit Activation Hotline / Scam and cheating!

1 United States Review updated:

I received an unsolicited voicemail from them and returned the phone call. The computer generated message began by asking for my banking information and social security number. The system would not allow you to speak with a live representative. I became leary and disconnected the call as it seemed odd that you couldn't speak with a person, and only could enter your information. I am definitely checking my bank account over the next couple of days to make sure that nothing is taken out.

    Just checked my home voice messages and found a message from this company--Credit Activation Hotline--saying that I had been awarded a $10, 000 auto loan/cash advance. It was an automated call and when I called back found it impossible to speak with a live person. The option was given to continue the call however I hung up.

    I have 3 adult kids living at home; one has told me he did not make the call--have not asked the others. Don't know if they generated the call but will be warning them against this company.

    Received 3 messages in past week from Credit Application Hotline. Responded to 3rd message by calling 877 number provided and got recordings. However, when touching either of the 2 choices the responses were "thank you" followed by disconnect.

    My next action is to report to FCC, including fact that they ignored the "Do Not Call" list. I suggest everyone do the same as FCC needs a number of complaints before they initiate an investigation.

    My number is on the National Do Not Call list. Everyday for the past month, I have been receiving calls from them. Even though I have tried using their "remove my number from your calling list" option, the calls continue. Is there any way to stop this? I thought companies were supposed to incur fines/penalties for not checking call lists against the Do Not Call List. I just want this to stop!
