It is a company that makes the fraud calls for B of A cards.  I updated my address yesterday so they were calling to verify that no one had stolen my cards or tried to change my address and intercept the new card. They didn't ask for any personal information other than the phone number they called to reach me.  They asked for an approximate balance on one bill and that was it.  NO personal info.  it's plain old card services, where you write your check to every month when paying your bill.

I just received this call, and called the number on the back of my card.  It is 100% legit.  They had a fraud alert on my card, and I had to verify some purchases.  Those crying fraud on this need to just shut up already because they have no clue what they're talking about.  If you get this call, contact your BoA.

I looked here for the same reasons after getting calls with no messages from this number.  In my case there was no problem with the account, but because of this thread I called them to ask.   It turned out BOA had called me from that number to question a charge that they suspected could be fraudulent, but it wasn't.  So yes this is a legitimate number.  Even so, in order to trust your responses they do ask you some security questions that aren't good to answer to any random caller, it's always better if you call them on a published number, then you know who's on the other end.

i got this call today and saw it might be bank of america..didn't answer but googled it....i checked my account online and saw there was a fraudulant charge on my visa so called thier fraud dept. number on the interent and had to dispute it...

Got three calls today, third call they left a message. I didn't trust it, so I called the 800 number on the back of my Bank of America Visa, and they did confirm that 302-731-1166 is the BofA fraud department. They were calling because two unusual charges were pending on my account, and it turns out $500 of fraudulent charges had been placed on my card. They had to cancel the card and send a new one. I will say that the 302 area code message and phone system seems shady; I didn't trust it, but if you get a call, you should definitely contact BofA through the 800 number on your card to make sure your account is okay.

These people called and I didn't answer, googled the number, so was curious and called back.  Just as written before, there message does not list a company.  I gave them my phone number, and she asked my name.  I wouldn't give it because , they should have it if they called me.  Said she saw three cards in question. She stated they did work for the big three Visa, MC annd Amex when I pressed why they didn't have a company name.  I called my bank, no problems, I accessed my accounts online, no problem.  This IS ASCAM!

This thread is hysterical. Bottom line is this is a real number. I don't condone ever giving personal info to a person that called you claiming to be a bank, but doing so if the person is calling from this number likely won't be an issue. I missed a call from this number and googled it immediately. I decided to check my online account since so many said it was the fraud dept. Turns out my account was locked due to unusual activity. Coincidence? I guess it's possible but it's much more likely this is a legit BOA call. My guess is that those who are being told this is a scam by BOA are speaking to customer service reps who are uninformed and just assuming that since they don't recognize the number it must not be legit. Still, it's probably best to tell the caller you will call back. It will take you more time but better safe than sorry. These people insisting that this is a scam are doing more harm than good because if you get a call from this number, you likely have a problem with your credit card and need to take action. Don't ignore because you think this is a scam.

Just got off the phone with BOA fraud and they know nothing about the # or the person the recording claims to be calling. It isn't me. New cell phone # so I thought maybe it was used by someone before I got it this past Dec. BOA says they have nothing on any of this.
Report by ShillBuster Long ago Unknown
I did not answer the 302-731-1166 call and they did not leave any message. I called the number on the back of my card and BofA verified that they did indeed try to reach me. There was a $1 pending charge from google which BofA said is often an attempt by someone to see if the card number is valid before they start running up charges. Since I never charge using google, my card number has been compromised and I will be getting a new one.

Not a scam. Legit BoA. 02/29/12 I made the charge online, and they immediately sent the email and made 2 calls from this number. I called the 800 number and cleared it up. I know scams when I see them. Although asking you for numbers is very odd, always call the 800 number to verify if you don't want to give the numbers.

***  PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE BEFORE YOU CALL BACK  ****** DO NOT GIVE ANYONE CALLING YOUR INFORMATION ***This is absolutely a classic phishing scam. All the signs are there and I have received confirmation from Bank of America that it is indeed one.What to look for: the callers left a voicemail on my phone. The call contained most of the red flags you'd expect in a scam message:1. An "ALERT" noise which sounds a bit like the Fox news broadcast or CNN broadcast alerts to create urgency.2. A reference to a card ending in 4299. None of my cards end in that code, but I'm sure many people getting this message would not check first.  3. A prerecorded message which, if you listen to carefully, seems choppy as if someone spliced it together from an official call.4. A request to call back *immediately* to a number not published on the bank's website. You'd think the bank would publish the number for verification purposes.5. A warning of a hold if the call isn't returned further creating urgency. Instructions are then given to call 866-559-0025 and enter in a pin number (to make it seem legit).6. The message then stresses to disregard any messages from Bank of America online or any text alerts received on your mobile phone. Which makes sense since the last thing the scammers want is for you to actually call the bank.7. I call the number which identifies itself as "card services". Umm hmm. Many banks do outsource service functions as posters have stated above, but due to the nature of financial information, the outsource company usually operates separate lines and identifies the financial institution they represent on a particular inbound or outbound call.8. . The first thing I hear is instructions to enter in a billing zip code without so much as an identification. I enter in a bogus code in another state and sail onto the next step. That was the clincher.I promptly hang up and call the Bank of America number on my card. The representative I get runs a quick sweep of my account and indicates no fraud alert has been issued.It's a fairly well done fake, and I feel bad for the people who posted "it's legit!" on this post, because they likely gave a scammer their card info, pin and personal info.  Hopefully this message will save you time, money and angst.

Got the call this morning.  They didn't leave the message.  Everyone says it's legit from BoA, so I simply called their customer service number on the back of the card.  Two charges were made (yesterday and today), and they thought they were funny.  Both were legit charges.The same thing happened with a different account at a different bank.  I had two online purchases they thought were suspicious, so they stopped them until they contacted me.  Again, both of those were legit, so they released the funds.I'm guessing that the person on the other end who couldn't speak English is probably working for BoA because of outsourcing.  That, or they mysteriously only staff their call centers with people of Indian or Pakistani origin.  But odd how they would steal my card number, run up plenty of suspicious charges (which were all legitimate), and then call me to get my credit card number which they already stole.  Why call to get a number that was already stolen in the first place?As for how funny it was that the call came on MLK day, when banks are closed that day - I'm pretty sure just about every bank is closed on Sunday, yet when I called the customer service number, I spoke to a person.  Could it be that, in this Internet age, banks hire people to man customer service numbers and other phones on - gasp - a Sunday or a holiday?Then again, what do I know?  Since I don't agree with Mila 100%, I must be a scam artist who is getting all sorts of kickbacks.  Bottom line, if you don't want to give the info to the number that called, then don't.  But at least contact the customer service number on the back of the card - odds are that something could potentially be wrong with the account.

If a credit card company is legitimately calling you about fraudulent charges they will always leave a message saying as much and asking you to call your card issuer to resolve. They will never just hang up & keep calling until you answer!

Dude, seriously, you are 100% wrong. The number is the automated fraud detection system calling to let her know about the fraud.If you look at the back of your credit card you'll see that there isa  number starting with 302-73X-XXXXBofA is a HUGE company with 10s of thousands of phone numbers.  When a large company has that many numbers the phone company usually gives them those numbers in blocks.  In this case they appear to have all the 73X prefix phone numbers in the 302 area code.Their automated system uses specific numbers for outbound calling only.  Their inbound phone numbers are different because they are directed to a different system.As this woman said,her account was shut down completely when she tried to view it online.  That is because their automated fraud system caught some unusual activity and shut the card down, at the same time it attempted to contact the customer in order to have the customer identify charges as correct or fraudulent.

This is a legitimate number.  I got a call from this number this morning but I did not answer the phone.  After checking on the web, I called the number.  A guy answered the phone and requested me to give him my credit card number.  He said there is a suspected fraudulent activity.  I told him I have a few cards and I need to know which.  He won't released any information.  He asked me which card I had recently used and that payment failed.  I did use my BOA card to pay my ACCA membership in sterling pound just 10 minutes ago and it failed to go through.  Being cautious, I told him I will call my bank directly.  I called BOA # at the back of my card and true enough my card was temporarily blocked due to this payment made.  After clarifying that it was indeed a payment made by me, they released the block on my card.  I think they are doing a good job in preventing fraudulent activities.  I asked BOA regarding the first phone call and they said it was legitimate.

This is in fact a fraud - not Bank of America.  Was called by some clown who could hardly speak English - they knew my name already and claimed there was a problem with my card wanted the digits on the Visa card.  In fact, there was nothing wrong with the card and the bank said there had been no legitimate attempt to call me.This is obviously a fraud, and the shill for this scam has been trying to jam up this forum with fake posts - advise anyone getting this call not to provide any information and report the call to the bank right away.

You are completely wrong, this number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. Please research your facts before giving advice that is totally wrong.

I am almost positive that this is a legit number. I got a call from this number that I missed on my cell phone. I also received an email claiming to be from BofA saying that there was potential fraudulent activity on my account, with an 800 number to call or a link to a fraud alert website. Being cautious, but not paranoid, I just went to my on-line account via the usual method, to find that it was blocked due to potential fraudulent charges, so I had to clear it. First I had to enter my account #, then there were a bunch of multiple choice questions that no one else would know the answers to, then they asked for the last 4 digits of my SSN, and finally they showed me all of my charges for the last three days and asked if they were all legit. They were, though some did seem a little odd, so I said "yes" and then the message said that my card was cleared. The odds of my getting a scam call, especially on my cell phone which has never happened before, and my account actually being blocked like that show that the call I received was from BofA.

I'm reposting this up here because these scam "artists" hired a bunch of monkeys (with terrible grammar and spelling skills if I may add...) to go on the front page and push back most of the comments indicating that this is a scam. Thus filling the front page with a bunch of BS about how it is a legitimate number....Get a call from these a-holes twice this morning. Didn't pick up because I never answer calls I don't recognize (especially if they don't leave a voicemail the first time) and I especially never answer calls from out of state I don't recognize because it's always a scam.Anyways, I looked up the number on here and confirmed my suspicions that it was a scam call. Interestingly enough, when I checked my BoA account, it had been closed because of suspicious fraudulent charges. The number for the fraudulent number ON THE ACTUAL BoA website does not match the number that called me. My guess is these jerk offs steal your card and make a lot of suspicious purchases making BoA instantly close your account because of their security settings. So just in case you are suspicious enough to check your account after they called you, you will see your account is closed and think the call is actually from Bank of America.SPOILER ALERT: IT NEVER IS. It never will be. A company will NEVER ever contact you for your personal information. DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO AN INCOMING CALL/EMAIL EVER.I also love how they called me on f***ing Martin Luther King Jr. day so all the banks are closed. It's also another red flag.Don't listen to the other posts on this site claiming the number is legit. I have nothing to gain but they have everything to lose if you listen to the people claiming it's a scam. Only ever give out information after directly calling the company's line listed on your card.Your account may most likely be closed because these scammers know what they are doing. But please, do NOT think that because your account is closed when you received the call that it is legitimately BoA. Better safe than sorry. Hell, go to BoA directly. It's not just money scam artists will take they can destroy your credit score and impersonate you to the point where your name will forever be tarnished.

Today I've got a call from (302)731-1166. Since this # is not familar to me, so I checked it online.And saw your post there saying this # is from Bank of America Credit Card Fraudulent Service". I called the # and it was busy. Then I called the 800# Customer Service showing on the back of my credit card. As always, I was asked to enter my last four digits of my account number, which I did. Then I was asked to enter my social security number, which was very unsual and has never been done before, But I also did. Then the voice in the phone said that please enter "1" at any time if I couldn't recognize or were not familiar with the charges when they read all the charges on my credit account. I immdiatelly realized that it was not right right after the first charge was read to me. Then I entered "1", and was connected right away to the real person at the Customer Service. After they verified with me for my residential address and email address, and I told them the last purchase I used my credit card to make the payment. After a short while, I was told that they would close my current account and would issue new card to me within days. Although I am upset and frustrated about this instance, I  appreciate so much for the great job that Bank of America has done. I also want to say "go to the hell" to those nasty thieves.

This is a real Bank Of America phone number.  In fact, if you look at the back of your credit card you'll see a phone number that has the same (302) 73X-XXX area code and prefix.  Bank of America is a HUGE company and probably has tens of thousands of assigned telephone numbers.  As a result they probably have the entire range of the 302 area code's 730 through 739 prefixes.  The phone number you received a call from is most likely one of their fraud detection robo callers.  If you aren't comfortable giving out your private information (which is entirely understandble) to an inbound caller you should just tell them "I'll call you guys back using the number on the back of the credit card."  It's that simple.

After going through the automated prompts to verify a charge, a computer generated voice stated a company I was not familiar with in which I was then connected to the female representative that spoke fluent English.  After verifying 3 most recent purchases, the last being of $1 charged today from Mexico which I did not make, the other 2 being charges I verified on my online Bof A access as ones I did incur or valid charges, they cancelled my card and informed me I will receive a new card.  To be safe, I called the number on the back of my credit card 5 minutes after hanging up with the representative that informed me my card would be cancelled and after following the prompts the automated system stating my account had been closed and thank you for calling.  This is a legitimate call and after reading this thread is what prompted me to call the credit card 800 number on the back of the card. I'm confident I was not victim of a fishing scam from this number but I understand in today's society why everyone needs to be hypervigilent against theives posing as legitimate business

You are sadly mistaken and obviously a 'chicken little' type.  Do your homework and you will find this 302-731-1166 number - is INDEED a legitimate number with legitimate reasons for calling you.  They just called me and I called the number on the back of my card and confirmed charges I had made the previous day.  Due to the fact that I had never used this card they (BandOfAMerica) became concerned and wanted me to verify the charges.DOING WHAT THEY SHOULD DO!!!!!! Again, this is NOT a FRAUD or SCAM!

This is not a fraud. This number is legitimate. I was in a dept store buying suits. The associate ran my card once and on the second transaction my MasterCard was declined.

You are both very wrong and clearly have some try of grudge against BoA or are an unhappy customer. This number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. This site is here to inform people about the identity of a number not to spew your views or issues with said company.

It is a company that makes the fraud calls for B of A cards.  I updated my address yesterday so they were calling to verify that no one had stolen my cards or tried to change my address and intercept the new card. They didn't ask for any personal information other than the phone number they called to reach me.  They asked for an approximate balance on one bill and that was it.  NO personal info.  it's plain old card services, where you write your check to every month when paying your bill.

I looked here for the same reasons after getting calls with no messages from this number.  In my case there was no problem with the account, but because of this thread I called them to ask.   It turned out BOA had called me from that number to question a charge that they suspected could be fraudulent, but it wasn't.  So yes this is a legitimate number.  Even so, in order to trust your responses they do ask you some security questions that aren't good to answer to any random caller, it's always better if you call them on a published number, then you know who's on the other end.

Got three calls today, third call they left a message. I didn't trust it, so I called the 800 number on the back of my Bank of America Visa, and they did confirm that 302-731-1166 is the BofA fraud department. They were calling because two unusual charges were pending on my account, and it turns out $500 of fraudulent charges had been placed on my card. They had to cancel the card and send a new one. I will say that the 302 area code message and phone system seems shady; I didn't trust it, but if you get a call, you should definitely contact BofA through the 800 number on your card to make sure your account is okay.

This thread is hysterical. Bottom line is this is a real number. I don't condone ever giving personal info to a person that called you claiming to be a bank, but doing so if the person is calling from this number likely won't be an issue. I missed a call from this number and googled it immediately. I decided to check my online account since so many said it was the fraud dept. Turns out my account was locked due to unusual activity. Coincidence? I guess it's possible but it's much more likely this is a legit BOA call. My guess is that those who are being told this is a scam by BOA are speaking to customer service reps who are uninformed and just assuming that since they don't recognize the number it must not be legit. Still, it's probably best to tell the caller you will call back. It will take you more time but better safe than sorry. These people insisting that this is a scam are doing more harm than good because if you get a call from this number, you likely have a problem with your credit card and need to take action. Don't ignore because you think this is a scam.

I did not answer the 302-731-1166 call and they did not leave any message. I called the number on the back of my card and BofA verified that they did indeed try to reach me. There was a $1 pending charge from google which BofA said is often an attempt by someone to see if the card number is valid before they start running up charges. Since I never charge using google, my card number has been compromised and I will be getting a new one.

***  PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE BEFORE YOU CALL BACK  ****** DO NOT GIVE ANYONE CALLING YOUR INFORMATION ***This is absolutely a classic phishing scam. All the signs are there and I have received confirmation from Bank of America that it is indeed one.What to look for: the callers left a voicemail on my phone. The call contained most of the red flags you'd expect in a scam message:1. An "ALERT" noise which sounds a bit like the Fox news broadcast or CNN broadcast alerts to create urgency.2. A reference to a card ending in 4299. None of my cards end in that code, but I'm sure many people getting this message would not check first.  3. A prerecorded message which, if you listen to carefully, seems choppy as if someone spliced it together from an official call.4. A request to call back *immediately* to a number not published on the bank's website. You'd think the bank would publish the number for verification purposes.5. A warning of a hold if the call isn't returned further creating urgency. Instructions are then given to call 866-559-0025 and enter in a pin number (to make it seem legit).6. The message then stresses to disregard any messages from Bank of America online or any text alerts received on your mobile phone. Which makes sense since the last thing the scammers want is for you to actually call the bank.7. I call the number which identifies itself as "card services". Umm hmm. Many banks do outsource service functions as posters have stated above, but due to the nature of financial information, the outsource company usually operates separate lines and identifies the financial institution they represent on a particular inbound or outbound call.8. . The first thing I hear is instructions to enter in a billing zip code without so much as an identification. I enter in a bogus code in another state and sail onto the next step. That was the clincher.I promptly hang up and call the Bank of America number on my card. The representative I get runs a quick sweep of my account and indicates no fraud alert has been issued.It's a fairly well done fake, and I feel bad for the people who posted "it's legit!" on this post, because they likely gave a scammer their card info, pin and personal info.  Hopefully this message will save you time, money and angst.

Got the call this morning.  They didn't leave the message.  Everyone says it's legit from BoA, so I simply called their customer service number on the back of the card.  Two charges were made (yesterday and today), and they thought they were funny.  Both were legit charges.The same thing happened with a different account at a different bank.  I had two online purchases they thought were suspicious, so they stopped them until they contacted me.  Again, both of those were legit, so they released the funds.I'm guessing that the person on the other end who couldn't speak English is probably working for BoA because of outsourcing.  That, or they mysteriously only staff their call centers with people of Indian or Pakistani origin.  But odd how they would steal my card number, run up plenty of suspicious charges (which were all legitimate), and then call me to get my credit card number which they already stole.  Why call to get a number that was already stolen in the first place?As for how funny it was that the call came on MLK day, when banks are closed that day - I'm pretty sure just about every bank is closed on Sunday, yet when I called the customer service number, I spoke to a person.  Could it be that, in this Internet age, banks hire people to man customer service numbers and other phones on - gasp - a Sunday or a holiday?Then again, what do I know?  Since I don't agree with Mila 100%, I must be a scam artist who is getting all sorts of kickbacks.  Bottom line, if you don't want to give the info to the number that called, then don't.  But at least contact the customer service number on the back of the card - odds are that something could potentially be wrong with the account.

I am almost positive that this is a legit number. I got a call from this number that I missed on my cell phone. I also received an email claiming to be from BofA saying that there was potential fraudulent activity on my account, with an 800 number to call or a link to a fraud alert website. Being cautious, but not paranoid, I just went to my on-line account via the usual method, to find that it was blocked due to potential fraudulent charges, so I had to clear it. First I had to enter my account #, then there were a bunch of multiple choice questions that no one else would know the answers to, then they asked for the last 4 digits of my SSN, and finally they showed me all of my charges for the last three days and asked if they were all legit. They were, though some did seem a little odd, so I said "yes" and then the message said that my card was cleared. The odds of my getting a scam call, especially on my cell phone which has never happened before, and my account actually being blocked like that show that the call I received was from BofA.

I'm reposting this up here because these scam "artists" hired a bunch of monkeys (with terrible grammar and spelling skills if I may add...) to go on the front page and push back most of the comments indicating that this is a scam. Thus filling the front page with a bunch of BS about how it is a legitimate number....Get a call from these a-holes twice this morning. Didn't pick up because I never answer calls I don't recognize (especially if they don't leave a voicemail the first time) and I especially never answer calls from out of state I don't recognize because it's always a scam.Anyways, I looked up the number on here and confirmed my suspicions that it was a scam call. Interestingly enough, when I checked my BoA account, it had been closed because of suspicious fraudulent charges. The number for the fraudulent number ON THE ACTUAL BoA website does not match the number that called me. My guess is these jerk offs steal your card and make a lot of suspicious purchases making BoA instantly close your account because of their security settings. So just in case you are suspicious enough to check your account after they called you, you will see your account is closed and think the call is actually from Bank of America.SPOILER ALERT: IT NEVER IS. It never will be. A company will NEVER ever contact you for your personal information. DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO AN INCOMING CALL/EMAIL EVER.I also love how they called me on f***ing Martin Luther King Jr. day so all the banks are closed. It's also another red flag.Don't listen to the other posts on this site claiming the number is legit. I have nothing to gain but they have everything to lose if you listen to the people claiming it's a scam. Only ever give out information after directly calling the company's line listed on your card.Your account may most likely be closed because these scammers know what they are doing. But please, do NOT think that because your account is closed when you received the call that it is legitimately BoA. Better safe than sorry. Hell, go to BoA directly. It's not just money scam artists will take they can destroy your credit score and impersonate you to the point where your name will forever be tarnished.

I called the # and it was busy. Then I called the 800# Customer Service showing on the back of my credit card. As always, I was asked to enter my last four digits of my account number, which I did. Then I was asked to enter my social security number, which was very unsual and has never been done before, But I also did. Then the voice in the phone said that please enter "1" at any time if I couldn't recognize or were not familiar with the charges when they read all the charges on my credit account. I immdiatelly realized that it was not right right after the first charge was read to me. Then I entered "1", and was connected right away to the real person at the Customer Service. After they verified with me for my residential address and email address, and I told them the last purchase I used my credit card to make the payment. After a short while, I was told that they would close my current account and would issue new card to me within days. Although I am upset and frustrated about this instance, I  appreciate so much for the great job that Bank of America has done. I also want to say "go to the hell" to those nasty thieves.

Your are an idiot - Just got a call from them. Pressed 1 - put in my zip code (nothing private about that) - automated voice naming off various transactions that were ALL legit. Pressed 1 again to say "All valid trans" - then got a goodbye... never even got an operator and this is exactly how it happened about a year ago.

You are exactly right.  I got a call this morning.  I would not talk to them.  Then I called Bank of America and they confirmed that it was they who called.  If this happens to you again, just call your credit card number andcheck it out.  It is better to be safe instead of sorry and it is better to call your credit card immediately to make sure everything is okay.

I just got a call from BOA from this number about fraud charges...they took over FIA...so even though I stll have and use my old FIA card...they now belong to BOA
Report by sweetess12 Long ago Unknown
If i don't have BoA why would they be calling me from this number? I agree that it is potentially a fraud, seeing as I have never opened or tried to open an account with this company. I don't understand why i would get a call from them...
Report by ASDASD Long ago Unknown
You're retarded, this number is legitimate. The only thing they ask for is your zip code (my zip code?!?! oh no, i'm going to get phished for sure!), and they have MAGICAL information such as your last 3 purchases, company of purchase and amount of purchase. If these "scammers" already have that info you've already been had. Hint: they have that info because it's Bank of America. You're so dumb, the cops should arrest you for being legally handicapped but not registered as such.
Report by SK Long ago Unknown
Are you part of this scam Dexter? It is most certainly cons trying to get fools to disclose their CC#'s and personal info. Why would BoA call and ask for that stuff when they already have it. You suck Dexter, and I hope the cops have tracked down and arrested you by now.

This is a real Bank Of America phone number.  In fact, if you look at the back of your credit card you'll see a phone number that has the same (302) 73X-XXX area code and prefix.  Bank of America is a HUGE company and probably has tens of thousands of assigned telephone numbers.  As a result they probably have the entire range of the 302 area code's 730 through 739 prefixes.  The phone number you received a call from is most likely one of their fraud detection robo callers.  If you aren't comfortable giving out your private information (which is entirely understandble) to an inbound caller you should just tell them "I'll call you guys back using the number on the back of the credit card."  It's that simple.

Report by Jennifer Long ago Unknown
This is in fact B of A calling. I was called by the number and picked up about fraudulent charge on my BofA account. After going through the automated prompts to verify a charge, a computer generated voice stated a company I was not familiar with in which I was then connected to the female representative that spoke fluent English.  After verifying 3 most recent purchases, the last being of $1 charged today from Mexico which I did not make, the other 2 being charges I verified on my online Bof A access as ones I did incur or valid charges, they cancelled my card and informed me I will receive a new card.  To be safe, I called the number on the back of my credit card 5 minutes after hanging up with the representative that informed me my card would be cancelled and after following the prompts the automated system stating my account had been closed and thank you for calling.  This is a legitimate call and after reading this thread is what prompted me to call the credit card 800 number on the back of the card. I'm confident I was not victim of a fishing scam from this number but I understand in today's society why everyone needs to be hypervigilent against theives posing as legitimate business

You are both very wrong and clearly have some try of grudge against BoA or are an unhappy customer. This number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. This site is here to inform people about the identity of a number not to spew your views or issues with said company.

Yesterday I got a call from Bank of America. "Card Service" was on my caller ID. They asked my personal information: SS number and card number. I didn’t give them this information.  I told I will call their main phone number to speak to their customer service and hung up. I then tried to access my online account but could not due to a "fraud alert". Have to call BOA to find out what happened.

Wierd, mine was totally different. Someone told me that I had won a vacation package from a form I filled out in a city close to where I used to live. I told him I lived several states away now. He said that it wasn't a time share they were trying to sell, it was a free package and all I had to pay for was the taxes. The scary thing was that he knew I was married. He said he just had to get some info from me to see if it was correct. That is where I cut him off and said I wasn't interested. He said if I could get back to the town within a week they would still have it for me. I tried to call the number back later on to see if I could get a company voice mail, the phone just rang and then the call ended. He was really vague when I asked about details.

Phone rang and caller ID read "H C COM" It was a recorded voice message. You know that type you really hate to get when your a busy person and have children who are also needing you. Well, the voice said "This is regarding your mortgage and foreclosure" then the dang message clicked off and the line was dropped. This really ticks me off.  I pay my bills and trying to scare people into thinking they are in foreclosure could cause someone to harm themselves or maybe others. I HATE telemarketers. I pay to keep them away and they just keep calling. Sure put yourself on a do not call list as others will say, what good does this do really? I've done it like five times.

I got a call from this number awhile back. Note that they will block their caller id info to you, but in their cheerful voice, they try to instill fear in you about a file sharing activity they claim you did. They will accuse you of copyright infringement. They leave this number to call them back, ostensibly to extort money from you to save you the "embarrasment" of being accused of downloading a porn film. DON'T ANSWER BLOCKED CALL NUMBERS, AND DON'T EVER TALK TO THEM. I did a little research on this company. They have ZERO INTEREST in taking you to court, although they will TELL YOU they will. They have CONSISTENTLY LOST THEIR CASES IN FEDERAL COURTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. Porn films have a very short revenue generating "shelf life". This company tries to generate more money to the copyright holders, by trolling torrent programs, and writing down your isp. Then, they subpoena your contact info from your isp, and from that info, the phone calls begin do yourself a favor and Google the case number they give you, and you'll see why these people are DESPERATE to talk you into settling, BECAUSE THEY CONSISTANTLY LOSE THEIR CASES DUE TO LACK OF PROOF. JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE YOUR ISP, THEY CONVENIENTLY "forget" that most homes have a wireless internet connection in their homes, and someone parked in front of your house could have used your isp to download these alleged copyrighted files. Don't talk to them. Keep your mouth shut. Don't fall for this scam. Really, Google the case number they give you. Do not cooperate. Do not talk. Do not answer calls from 818 area code unless you live in southern California. They have your phone number, but NO proof.
