I have been perennially cursed for years with repeated calls with this scam of Rachel at Cardholder Services. I would be interested to know how many other of the local citizenry is cursed with this repeated aggravation, for which there is no cure.

Block the number on your phone. I've got that one blocked and the ship horn that starts the scam about winning a free cruise. My wife doesn't block anyone but she only answers calls from peoples names she knows on caller ID. That works pretty good to because if they get no answer after 8 or 9 calls they take your name and number off their list as a "dead" number.

The number cannot be blocked. Cardholder Services is the most prolific of the telemarketing scammers. Google up "Rachel at Cardholder Services". You will see that this is the most impossible to locate of all scams. They have a way to continually generate new numbers of origin. And NOTHING can be done to stop them.

I see what you are saying. I didn't know that. I know that the "Do not call" list is bogus. We have registered 3 times on there and we still get calls from every kind of scam business.

Here lately it's been a "free" security alarm. Yes, it's free but you have to pay them $100 to install it and then they charge you every month.

The Ship Horn. They call and say you have won a free cruise. What they don't tell you is that you have to pay jacked up portage fees and other costs amounting to about $300 for a 3 day cruise on a cruiseline no one has ever heard of. You also have to get to Miami because that is the only port in the United States that cruiseline uses. You can get a 3 day first class cruise on Carnival out of Cape Canaveral for $300 including everything.
Others:
Auto repair Insurance SCAM.
Roof/house inspections SCAM

If it sounds too good to be true it is dangerous
Never trust anyone who calls you out of the blue on the phone or the internet.

"Do Not Call" lists are only for bothersome but "legitimate" telemarketers. Non-profits and political organizations are exempt from complying. So you can't stop the damned calls from Mitt Romey, who's going to save us all, out of the goodness of his heart, or from the Deputy Sheriff's or Widows of State Police or some other bunk organization that will take your dough and send you a windshield sticker that you think will keep you from getting tickets when stopped by cops. If legitimate groups are cravenly willing to give out the use of their names, they probably get a nickel on the dollar from the donations to the supposedly good cause solicited from the "boiler rooms."

There’s one thing you can do: waste their time. Ask questions. Where are you calling from? Ask where Rachel went. Chat. The longer they’re on the line, the more they lose. The sharp ones will hang up on you. But they lost time and money. And that feels good. Just don’t give them any real personal info!
