“Clearly a scam. My wife got the call today, the caller presented himself as Amazon Customer Service representative and started to ask the name of the person he was talking to. My wife figured that Amazon would rather ask for me, the account owner. The call got dropped. I have called Amazon about 15 minutes later, explained them what happened and asked if they could confirm that Amazon tried to contact me today. I was assured that they keep track of all contact attempts (calls, emails…) and they did NOT try to contact me. So, 100% scam, as suspected.”

“I keep getting calls from this number, I block it and still they cover their tracks by using cell numbers that are local. I was told that I could lower my interest rate, but if I didn’t they would cancel my card, I then said to cancel my card, and I was talked to in a unknown language and I demanded he speak English and he again, said more and hung up on me.”
Chatt commented on 8008232318:
“Called for galpal who has stage 4 cancer, and is on Social Security with Medicare and Medicaid benefits and does not owe anything to anyone. She only has one doctor and all bills are paid for by funding from cancer society. I told them off, and they said they were sorry for bothering. I also informed I’d be blocking their number for calling continuously and at 8:51PM at night.”
As in general the tellows score of the top 10 numbers, with the information shared by our users ranged between 6- 8, which highly suggested that they are not trustworthy.
