my boyfriend was being harassed by theses "jacob brown"s and "michael sinclair"s for a $500 payment and paniced when he heard that they would be at his job to arrest him if he did not pay. i guess they agreed that he could do payments and said his first would be a "good faith" payment of $100 to keep the police from his job, but not to keep him out of debt with them. he asked for the information to pay the money, but the guy told him "no", that he would only give him the information step by step when my boyfriend arrived at a local moneygram site to ensure they would receive the money. he ended up sending $100 to a "rory jenson" in california. im so ticked off cause im aure theres norhing to be done to get our money back.

Get a phone that blocks insects. Why did you let that insect threaten you? Ignore it and go on with your life. He'll call you with other numbers. Just block it call and you should report all their numbers to the FTC. Here you go www.ftc.gov. You should know that he's trying to extort money out of you by playing around with your emotions. Don't answer them. They can't do a damn thing to you other than call you with multiple numbers.

Phantom Debt Collectors From India Harass Americans, Demand MoneyBy BRIAN ROSS (@brianross) , CINDY GALLI and MATTHEW MOSK (@mattmosk) June 7, 2012 Hundreds of thousands of cash-strapped Americans have been targeted by abusive debt collectors operating out of overseas call centers suspected of links to organized crime in India, law enforcement officials told ABC News.The calls are part of a massive scam, one that appears to target struggling Americans -- especially those who have gone online to apply for payday loans. Armed with personal information from those pilfered applications, the threatening callers, who claim to be debt collectors poised to initiate legal action, have managed to pry loose millions of dollars from their victims -- even when the victims never owed money in the first place."This is what we call a phantom debt collection scam," said Jon Leibowitz, the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission. "It's a very pernicious and innovative new fraud."Working through call centers in India, the commission estimates that the criminals have dialed at least 2.5 million calls, persuading already cash-strapped victims to send them more than $5 million. Some have reported receiving dozens of calls per hour. They are victims like Cindy Gervais, of New Orleans, who went online for a quick loan when her husband's car was hit by a driver who didn't have insurance.Even though she paid the loan off, the so-called "phantom" debt collectors with Indian accents began calling to say she still owed money.He more or less told me that if I didn't pay, they were going to have someone on my doorstep to arrest me," she told ABC News. "And that they were going to contact my place of business, and tell them what kind of person I am."At first, she said she resisted. Then the calls became more frequent, and started to ring on her cell phone, and at the grocery distribution company where she had worked for 27 years."I was more or less was in panic mode because he told me there would be someone before noon at my place of business to arrest me and take me to jail," she said tearfully. "So I agreed to pay him."After receiving scores of complaints, investigators with the FTC said they began tracking the calls, and following the payments. They alleged the payments led them to a California company run by an Indian-American named Kirit Patel, and that such scams would not be possible without American front men."I would say that all roads of this scam, or many of the roads of this scam, lead back to Mr. Patel," said the FTC's Leibowitz.ABC News tracked Patel for weeks, from the suburbs of San Francisco to Austin, Texas.Patel refused to talk. But his lawyer, Mark Ellis, said he believes it is far too early to pass judgment on his client. Ellis, a Sacramento-based attorney, told ABC News that Patel was hired for a nominal fee to set up an American shell company, and had no idea what the call centers in India were doing."I can tell you, he was as snookered by the people in India as anybody," Ellis said. "He's a 69-year-old man who is nearing his retirement who thought all he had to do was set up some corporations and everything was on the up and up. He's completely dismayed that he has become the lightning rod of this entire problem."A close friend of Patel's also defended him in a brief interview at his home, saying Patel was not trying to defraud anyone -- he was just an unwitting, bit player in a larger scheme."If Mr. Patel was just a cog in the wheel he seems to have been a pretty big cog," Leibowitz said. "It is clear that Patel was integrally involved with this scam." Leibowitz points to thousands of pages of financial and phone records gathered by the FTC and filed as part of a civil case brought against him in the U.S. District Court in Sacramento last month. When FTC lawyers sought to freeze his assets and prevent his business from continuing to operate, Patel responded by invoking his rights against self-incrimination. His lawyer told ABC News he has had to be careful in how he responds to the allegations in civil court "because there is a potential criminal action," but that Patel maintains the allegations against him are false. Federal investigators said the phantom debt collection operation that allegedly benefitted from Patel's assistance was one of several that all trace back to the same small town in Western India called Ahmedabad. Callers use technology to make it appear that the calls originate inside the U.S. Victims provided ABC News with recordings of dozens of the calls, and many of the thickly accented callers appear to be reading off a script. "Subpoenas have been readied, and Monday morning you're going to be picked up from your home," one caller says on a victim's voicemail. "And you have children. Don't worry about your children. We have a childcare department to take care of the children." "You will be behind bars for six months," said another caller. "And once you go behind bars, you will lose your job. Once you are behind the bars, you won't get a single drop of water." William Peerce Howard, a Tampa attorney who represents victims of harassment from debt collectors, said it takes an especially twisted criminal to use threats and coercion to pry money from someone who is already struggling financially "These guys really are the most visible villains in America today," he said. "They make a living scaring people."Mark Merola, of Florida, said he just panicked when the caller told him he might be arrested at the deli where he works in a Florida retirement community. "I was nervous. I didn't want to embarrass myself, my family," he said. He used his debit card to pay the collector $576. Afterwards, he says he realized "how stupid I was." "It just happened so fast," he said. "I got scared." Leibowitz said he hopes with more attention, future potential targets of the scam will recognize red flags before they turn over any money. If callers say they are from the police, consumers should know that law enforcement officers do not collect debt for private parties. If the caller is speaking with a thick Indian accent, but calls themselves by a names such as Officer Mike Johnson, that should be a tip off. And if they're calling 40 times in two hours, that's another red flag. "Legitimate debt collectors, legitimate pay day lenders don't do those sorts of things," he said. Merola said he would like to see anyone involved in the scam prosecuted aggressively. "There's no place in society for these people," he said. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/phantom-debt-co ... 16512428&page=2

Had the same number calling me ..... here's how to fix:  Change your number don't hand it out to anyone including family.  Get a Google voice number and use that as your NEW phone number.  Give that out to everyone.  With GV#, you can customize your incoming calls, make a call ring a different number .... BLOCK unlimited numbers, my favorite feature.  You can get GV for your Android now too.  Google keeps making this thing better and better.  And no, I don't work for them although my post seems like an ad.  This concept is the same at getting your own dot com just for the email control.  You don't hand out your main email address, you hand out aliases.  Create an alias for everything you do online i.e. newsletters / subscriptions / online job sites / Youtube etc.  You'll have a string of aliases a mile long after awhile.  But it works, my inbox is spam free now.  If an alias is sold (a regular occurrence for me) I simply delete that alias and take note to never subscribe to that whatever again.  easy squeezy.  So ... take control of your home phone with GV or continue getting junk phone calls ...... zup to you :)

This phone number belongs to the Pisa Group of St. Charles MO.  I called them on the direct line (314) 845-2825 and talked to a manager.  He wanted my phone number "in order to remove me from their list" did not want to give my number (for privacy reason and to avoid confirming my phone number) but told him I was on the national do-not-call list and he would find me there.He then told me that they were exempted from the do-not call list since they were not selling anything, only offering something for free.  This would be a coupon booklet containing "free" or discounted subscription to a local newspaper.They thus believe they have found a loophole around the national do-not-call registry.Maybee if we all start calling the company directly and repeatedly and bombard the Pisa group with complains, they will get the message?

The National Do Not Call List- Is only a list of people that wish telemarketers not to call them. It is not a list that will stop all unwanted callers. The only way to stop companies that ignore the list is to report them. I have told a lot of companies that I am on the national do not call list and if they ever call again I will report them. It is a $16,000 fine. The only groups that can ignore the list are Charities and political campaigns. One other thing can be done about any and all calls, If you have repeatedly recieved calls after telling the group you do not wish to be contacted anymore. Telemarketers, charities and political campaigns. Just inform them that you feel you are being harrassed and are being forced to seek legal council.If it is a foreign company, good luck! I found the harder you mess with them the less chance of them calling you back again. The longer you keep them on the phone wasting their time the funnier they get. ;O) I even got an Indonesian Supervisor cussing at me trying to sell me Dish Network.

you are absolutely right it is thepisagroup.com that uses 314-963-8895 and 636-935-7146.  They are telemarketers, and if you ask them how they got your telephone number they say your local paper. I called the local paper and they say that is how you got your newspaper from us . . they are our telemarketers. Then he said the 314 area code was PISA and the 636 number is actually the local newspaper so in effect they were doubling up on us. thank you for your help . . "ask the question" where did you get the phone number?  We are on the laughable DO NOT CALL feds list, and receive political survey calls; and we changed our phone number to a non-pub which is a landline/home phone.

OK, So I used to work the "The Pisa Group", that is who this company is. They handle newspaper accounts accross the country, they aren't a scam, but they are annoying. They are hired by different newspapers, ie, Oklahoma, Texas, Californina, Virginia, all over, including right here in St. Louis, to offer special promotions, and lower rates. I quit quite sometime ago, after over a year, but I recently signed up for the local paper here, and NOW I am getting calls every day myself from them, with some bigger and better deal. They have 6 locations throughout St. Louis, so although you may have told one to quit, the other office will probably continue to call. If you go to, www.thepisagroup.com , it will give you all the branches, phone numbers, and manager numbers, pitch a big enough fit, and they will take your number directly in and put you on the DNC list. If we got an irrate customer, we would hand write the number, give it to the boss on duty, and they would update the list immediately. Hope this helps some!

-   A post by “Vicky” on page 4 =I did a lot of work on The Pisa Group. The Pisa Group is a telemarketing company that violates the do-not-call registry. I also called them to have my name removed and like with all other people, they were friendly and gave me the standard answer that my number was provided by my local newspaper in Austin. Well, the Acquisition Sales & Retention Manager from the Austin American Statesman did do a thorough investigation and confirmed this is incorrect. She contacted the Pisa group and found out that this company practices "prefix dialing" and never received my information from the newspaper. Obviously, the Pisa Group is using the good name of a lot of newspapers to cover up their illegal do-not-call practices. I would encourage everybody that has been harassed by the Pisa Group to file an online complaint through the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) and also file a complaint with the government.-   My Post = I also **NOT** be calling that number  to "take my number off the list" because the REASON THEY ARE SO NICE WHEN YOU CALL TO GET IT REMOVED IS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, WHILE THEY SELL YOUR (NOW VALID) NUMBER TO SOME OTHER FOOL THAT WILL CALL YOU 100 TIMES A DAY!!!

The number is owned by the Pisa Group. They are a hardcore telemarketing company. They sell newspapers all over the country, Fla., KS, OK, Tex, Calif., NY, NJ. All their calls are computerized and each caller can make 50 - 100 calls per hour. They are located in St. Louis, Missouri and are very underhanded. They cheat their employees. They call former subscribers to the paper and hide behind the fact that you were a customer of the paper. Best thing to do is to tell them, "Put me on your do not call list and don't call again." Once you do that, if they call, it is a $5000.00 fine.

Best thing you can do is not subscrribe to newspapers or magazines. Helluva thing to say but most of these things somehow go back to your newspaper and magazines. You have extablished a business relationship with them and the DNC rules allow them to contact you. Sorry, but that is how it goes. When you cancel your subscription, do it by calling you paper and telling them why you are to cancel your subscription. Enough people do it and maybe they will think twice about using this type of firm to contact their customers. I know I contacted my newspaper and they immediaely put me on their DNC list. Since they put my number out with these people though, it may not do a lot of good.

Well, considering the fact that people have reported that they are calling about a TX newspaper and I just now received a call about it being for a local paper here in AZ and that number is from Missouri??? A little questionable. Why would a company from Missouri call folks representing multiple newspapers? I get that outsourcing is one thing but that is going to serve as a disincentive nonetheless that a representative from my local paper doesn't even live locally, let alone in the state.

OK for those of you that think the government is looking out for you, think again.  There are sooooo many loopholes in the DNC (as with every other bill that is put out by the losers in DC) that it is guaranteed not to work.  As he said if a company has any relationship whatsoever with a company you have done business with (even requesting information) then they can legally harass you.  The government will only take a company to court if they have a case that has been proven.  Who provides the evidence; why you the public, people that have been harrassed until they are about to come unglued.  Only then will the government take the company to court and of course when they win who gets the money?  Is it the people that have been harassed?  No it is our greedy, I mean needy government.I registered several years ago and my telephone did not changeduring that time but as I added to the list it seemed I got more calls.   I have since changed my number and do not answer the phone unless I know who it is.  I only get a couple of calles a day now.  Remember if you answer they know they have a live person.

Anytime you sign up for ANYTHING that you put your number on, magazine subscription forms anything that you are buying and any contest you enter that involves putting your phone number on means that company and ANY of it's affiliates can contact you, legally, this is why you have to continuously update you information on the do not call list. Every time you give you number out anywhere from 1-100 companies get to legally put you back on their list of number they are allowed to call. This is the loophole. This list has devastated the telemarketing industry resulting in lost jobs and can be linked to the economic recession. Think about letting people call you, some of the products and services are worth it and you will be helping all of America with recovering from this horrific economic downturn.

State do not call registries mostly expire periodically.I have been getting calls from "news". I recently stopped my subscription to the Dallas News. I suspect this is a service for newspapers to obtain subscribers or resubscribers and that, in  my case, the Dallas News has commissioned them to solicit me. If you have  had any relationship with a newspaper, it is possible that they avoid the Do Not Call requirements by this means, by claiming a business relationship with you. Even if you are already taking a paper (or have an online subscription), this service may be trying to sell you additional services or an additional paper. Call blocking is of course best, but many phone carriers do not offer this option (e.g. Verizon, at least in Texas). The best I have been able to do is note that caller ID says "news", so I do not answer. It is a nuisance, but less a nuisance than if I actually answer, which  is certainly not guaranteed to stop future nuisance calls from them.

I got a call from this number at 9:10 PM MST on March 3. I answered it and got a recorded message that said "your auto warranty is about to expire, we have sent you several written notifications and it is important that you speak to one of our representatives" It then gives the option to press 1 to speak to a representative or 2 to disconnect. I pressed 1, a woman answered and asked for the make and model of my car and I told her that I don't have one, please take my number... that's as far as I got before she hung up on me.

I got the same calls and I am a newspaper carrier.  My number is unlisted, and I get the automated dialer thing, but they knew my name.  I believe the paper I deliver for gave the info to them.  The problem is this: They don't care about the Do Not Call Registry because the fines are so low that it doesn't make a dent in their earnings.  You can choose to just not answer, but they will keep calling until you do.  And even after you tell them not to, they will continue.  It seems we have no recourse at all.

Had the same number calling me ..... here's how to fix:  Change your number don't hand it out to anyone including family.  Get a Google voice number and use that as your NEW phone number.  Give that out to everyone.  With GV#, you can customize your incoming calls, make a call ring a different number .... BLOCK unlimited numbers, my favorite feature.  You can get GV for your Android now too.  Google keeps making this thing better and better.  And no, I don't work for them although my post seems like an ad.  This concept is the same at getting your own dot com just for the email control.  You don't hand out your main email address, you hand out aliases.  Create an alias for everything you do online i.e. newsletters / subscriptions / online job sites / Youtube etc.  You'll have a string of aliases a mile long after awhile.  But it works, my inbox is spam free now.  If an alias is sold (a regular occurrence for me) I simply delete that alias and take note to never subscribe to that whatever again.  easy squeezy.  So ... take control of your home phone with GV or continue getting junk phone calls ...... zup to you :)

This phone number belongs to the Pisa Group of St. Charles MO.  I called them on the direct line (314) 845-2825 and talked to a manager.  He wanted my phone number "in order to remove me from their list" did not want to give my number (for privacy reason and to avoid confirming my phone number) but told him I was on the national do-not-call list and he would find me there.He then told me that they were exempted from the do-not call list since they were not selling anything, only offering something for free.  This would be a coupon booklet containing "free" or discounted subscription to a local newspaper.They thus believe they have found a loophole around the national do-not-call registry.Maybee if we all start calling the company directly and repeatedly and bombard the Pisa group with complains, they will get the message?

The National Do Not Call List- Is only a list of people that wish telemarketers not to call them. It is not a list that will stop all unwanted callers. The only way to stop companies that ignore the list is to report them. I have told a lot of companies that I am on the national do not call list and if they ever call again I will report them. It is a $16,000 fine. The only groups that can ignore the list are Charities and political campaigns. One other thing can be done about any and all calls, If you have repeatedly recieved calls after telling the group you do not wish to be contacted anymore. Telemarketers, charities and political campaigns. Just inform them that you feel you are being harrassed and are being forced to seek legal council.If it is a foreign company, good luck! I found the harder you mess with them the less chance of them calling you back again. The longer you keep them on the phone wasting their time the funnier they get. ;O) I even got an Indonesian Supervisor cussing at me trying to sell me Dish Network.

OK, So I used to work the "The Pisa Group", that is who this company is. They handle newspaper accounts accross the country, they aren't a scam, but they are annoying. They are hired by different newspapers, ie, Oklahoma, Texas, Californina, Virginia, all over, including right here in St. Louis, to offer special promotions, and lower rates. I quit quite sometime ago, after over a year, but I recently signed up for the local paper here, and NOW I am getting calls every day myself from them, with some bigger and better deal. They have 6 locations throughout St. Louis, so although you may have told one to quit, the other office will probably continue to call. If you go to, www.thepisagroup.com , it will give you all the branches, phone numbers, and manager numbers, pitch a big enough fit, and they will take your number directly in and put you on the DNC list. If we got an irrate customer, we would hand write the number, give it to the boss on duty, and they would update the list immediately. Hope this helps some!

-   A post by “Vicky” on page 4 =I did a lot of work on The Pisa Group. The Pisa Group is a telemarketing company that violates the do-not-call registry. I also called them to have my name removed and like with all other people, they were friendly and gave me the standard answer that my number was provided by my local newspaper in Austin. Well, the Acquisition Sales & Retention Manager from the Austin American Statesman did do a thorough investigation and confirmed this is incorrect. She contacted the Pisa group and found out that this company practices "prefix dialing" and never received my information from the newspaper. Obviously, the Pisa Group is using the good name of a lot of newspapers to cover up their illegal do-not-call practices. I would encourage everybody that has been harassed by the Pisa Group to file an online complaint through the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) and also file a complaint with the government.-   My Post = I also **NOT** be calling that number  to "take my number off the list" because the REASON THEY ARE SO NICE WHEN YOU CALL TO GET IT REMOVED IS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, WHILE THEY SELL YOUR (NOW VALID) NUMBER TO SOME OTHER FOOL THAT WILL CALL YOU 100 TIMES A DAY!!!

The number is owned by the Pisa Group. They are a hardcore telemarketing company. They sell newspapers all over the country, Fla., KS, OK, Tex, Calif., NY, NJ. All their calls are computerized and each caller can make 50 - 100 calls per hour. They are located in St. Louis, Missouri and are very underhanded. They cheat their employees. They call former subscribers to the paper and hide behind the fact that you were a customer of the paper. Best thing to do is to tell them, "Put me on your do not call list and don't call again." Once you do that, if they call, it is a $5000.00 fine.

Best thing you can do is not subscrribe to newspapers or magazines. Helluva thing to say but most of these things somehow go back to your newspaper and magazines. You have extablished a business relationship with them and the DNC rules allow them to contact you. Sorry, but that is how it goes. When you cancel your subscription, do it by calling you paper and telling them why you are to cancel your subscription. Enough people do it and maybe they will think twice about using this type of firm to contact their customers. I know I contacted my newspaper and they immediaely put me on their DNC list. Since they put my number out with these people though, it may not do a lot of good.

Well, considering the fact that people have reported that they are calling about a TX newspaper and I just now received a call about it being for a local paper here in AZ and that number is from Missouri??? A little questionable. Why would a company from Missouri call folks representing multiple newspapers? I get that outsourcing is one thing but that is going to serve as a disincentive nonetheless that a representative from my local paper doesn't even live locally, let alone in the state.

OK for those of you that think the government is looking out for you, think again.  There are sooooo many loopholes in the DNC (as with every other bill that is put out by the losers in DC) that it is guaranteed not to work.  As he said if a company has any relationship whatsoever with a company you have done business with (even requesting information) then they can legally harass you.  The government will only take a company to court if they have a case that has been proven.  Who provides the evidence; why you the public, people that have been harrassed until they are about to come unglued.  Only then will the government take the company to court and of course when they win who gets the money?  Is it the people that have been harassed?  No it is our greedy, I mean needy government.I registered several years ago and my telephone did not changeduring that time but as I added to the list it seemed I got more calls.   I have since changed my number and do not answer the phone unless I know who it is.  I only get a couple of calles a day now.  Remember if you answer they know they have a live person.

Anytime you sign up for ANYTHING that you put your number on, magazine subscription forms anything that you are buying and any contest you enter that involves putting your phone number on means that company and ANY of it's affiliates can contact you, legally, this is why you have to continuously update you information on the do not call list. Every time you give you number out anywhere from 1-100 companies get to legally put you back on their list of number they are allowed to call. This is the loophole. This list has devastated the telemarketing industry resulting in lost jobs and can be linked to the economic recession. Think about letting people call you, some of the products and services are worth it and you will be helping all of America with recovering from this horrific economic downturn.

State do not call registries mostly expire periodically.I have been getting calls from "news". I recently stopped my subscription to the Dallas News. I suspect this is a service for newspapers to obtain subscribers or resubscribers and that, in  my case, the Dallas News has commissioned them to solicit me. If you have  had any relationship with a newspaper, it is possible that they avoid the Do Not Call requirements by this means, by claiming a business relationship with you. Even if you are already taking a paper (or have an online subscription), this service may be trying to sell you additional services or an additional paper. Call blocking is of course best, but many phone carriers do not offer this option (e.g. Verizon, at least in Texas). The best I have been able to do is note that caller ID says "news", so I do not answer. It is a nuisance, but less a nuisance than if I actually answer, which  is certainly not guaranteed to stop future nuisance calls from them.

Just received a call on my cell phone from (289) 204-1534. Initially no one there, could have been a VOIP system where there iis a usual 5 second delay. Then a woman's voice came on and mentioned a special offer by pressing 1, and then entering my PIN number. I immediately hung up.I hope this is not a new scam where they use VOIP to bypass the "800" numbers.With caller ID, we no longer answer any "800" series area codes. The only exception we would ever consider if there was a known ID name.I am seriously thinking of installing a BLOCKER to block all "800" numbers, where the caller will get a recorded message to say the line has been disconnected.

Answered the call at work.  As soon as I heard the words, "It's Credit Services Calling.." I simply hang up thinking that it is either marketing or scam calls.

answered the call but no one spoke.  Probably because I answered in french!  Turned off my phone after but they didn't call  back.

I got a call from them before, and one just today actually. They didn't leave a message but I called the number back from another phone. It's "Credit Services" calling, saying that due to recent legislation they can now offer interest rates as low as 0% on my credit cards. Press 1 for more info or press 2 to be removed from the list. Kept pressing 2 but it just repeated the message, possibly because I wasn't calling from the number they called me at. In fact, pressing any other button just repeats the message. I never did press 1. I spent a couple of minutes rapidly pressing buttons. Made me feel better.

Got a call - nobody left a message. Probably same jerks trying to get me to have duct cleaning done. Phoned a local reputable duct cleaning company to get their organization's number to complain.  He told me that they were a bane on reputable local companies and that the calls were usually from the USA by 'fly-by-nighters'.In the past I've put the phone down and walked away for minutes at at time until they got the 'message' from me about my displeasure about such endless a calls. I've also asked them where in my area they are working and they just hung up without a by your leave. The duct man I spoke to told me I might want to make a reservation but then just  cancel at the door when they show up due to a 'serious medical situation'.

I got calls from this number too.. the thing is that if I am not familiar with the number I do not answer them.My motto is if you do not leave me a message on my mail box it means it is not important... Just an advise, it will save you from all telemarketers or possible scams.

Received a call from this number today, offering identity theft protection if I provided all my identification information on behalf of RBC. Was told that I could not receive information via my online account messaging center, only over the phone.Clearly a scam.

Non of the numbers below belong to us, and are more than likely a telemarketer company of some form or another.

Just received a call from (204) 289-0964. A lady asked "Is this First Lastname?" I said yes, the lady replied with a thank you and hung up. WTF ? Are they probing me for personal details and building a profile on me so they sound more legit on the next call ?Next time I'm asked from an unknown number if this is so and so I'll make sure to first ask who they are.

Part of a fraud campaign targeting numerous financial institutions.  Note the pattern of shill postings all claiming the number is real - an obvious giveaway.The large number of phony posts claiming the call is real come from some con artists spamming the site to try to fool people.  There is a similar pattern to other fake calls claiming to be from Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, US Bank, Wells Fargo, RBC, PayPal, etc. all with the same shill postings:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-866-750-9107/12http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-302-731-1166/2http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-555-0433http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-454-9078http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-302-731-1166http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-669-0102http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-866-255-3409/3http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-904-954-7500http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-402-935-7733/2http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-830-8574http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-824-9289/10http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-800-5234http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-602-766-6484/3http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-800-824-9289/10http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-800-5234

I had a missed call on my cell from this number.  They left a message saying it was from RBC Visa security department.  They gave me a reference number and instructed me to call the number on the back of my Visa card.  When I called, they asked about three recent charges on my account, totalling about $1300 in authorizations.  None of these charges were by me.  They told me I had no liability for fraud on my account, then closed my account down and mailed me a new card.  The legitimate balance from my card will be transferred to the new card, while the fraud transactions won't.So it turns out that 204-289-0964 is actually a legitimate outbound number for RBC Visa.That being said, if you get a call from an unrecognized number regarding your Visa, do not discuss your account with them.  Simply ask for a reference number, politely hang up, and call the number on the back of your card.  It may take a few minutes to connect you to the right person/department, but at least that way you can be sure you are in contact with your real credit card provider.The only incoming calls you should treat as secure are from numbers that appear on official documents/websites of your credit card provider.

Dude, I totally had the same experience, except I definitely heard the "machine"get garbled. The whole call  was too suspicious, the caller was so at ease and her voice sounded far too professional to be working in an outbound call centre. It blew my mind. I'm so happy to have read your post and know I'm not alone! I hope others can come forward, too.

Received a call today, July 15, 2011, at around 8:40 pm. Woman supposedly from RBC went on and on about trying to sell me insurance for my Visa (for my family and myself) and even my Blackberry! Either these people are getting creative or they are very privy to the things we own. Asked for me by name. She sounded like she was reading something scripted and often made me think that I was listening to a recorded message. When I FINALLY got a word in ("No") she said, "I understand how it feels to give so much information over the phone," (gives me a forced laugh to, I'm sure, calm my suspecting nerves). Whenever I receive phone calls from RBC, it always says RBC on the Caller I.D. and this was some weird number. She insisted twice for me to relax, which isn't right. Don't be fooled. Hang up, or don't answer at all. Do not fall for these scams. I can't do much to warn anyone, but I can at least do this.
