I googled 1 800 695 6950.
EveryCall identifies the number as coming from HBSC. So does Mr.Number.
Here are a few comments on 800 Notes
- HSBC CREDIT DEPT
- It's HSBC credit... "Best Buy"
There real good at harassing people!
DHCalled my cell phone before 8:00 AM. Didn't answer since there was no caller ID other than the number and it was too early in the morning to deal with another telemarketer. Bad enough you get called by some of these clowns at all, much less at 7:30 AM!it is against the law for any creditors to call before 8 am and after 8 pm... you can tell them that you will report them . and to stop harrassing you.
- Debt collector can call between the hours of 8am and 9pm. they get 13 hours to try to get ppl to answer their phones.
I don't have an HBSC credit card. I don't owe Best Buy any money.
Callcenter has this comment:
From what I can tell, these websites don't tell you the owner of the number, but they take complaints about phone numbers and people commenting tend to identify the offender.These guys call me 12 to 13 times a day. If you answer there is a machine telling you to wait for someone to answer, if it goes to voice mail you get 2 minutes of the computer telling you to wait. Please tell me where these guys are at so I can go visit them. I called HSBC and they say this is a phishing site. When I call the number back directly and fight through the system I get somebody in the Phillipines who wants all my personal information.......Yeah right
So I looked up Do Not Call List. We registered there a long time ago. I wasn't sure about the website. To check if I was registered they wanted my phone number and an email address to send back a confirmation. But it was a .gov address which is good. Nevertheless, I checked further and found an FCC website that talked about the Do Not Call List and confirmed the website address.
When I filled in the information (phone number and email) to check if I was registered, I got an email thanking me for registering and I could complain after 31 days. Whoa. I didn't intend to register, I wanted to make sure I was still registered from before.
I looked back on the FCC website and it had a phone number to call. You had to call from the phone you were checking about. That said I'd registered sometime in 2007 or 2008. It happened fast and I wasn't thinking and didn't write it down.
I went back to the Do Not Call List website and filed a complaint. I meant to mention that their website link for checking if you are already registered didn't work right, but I forgot. When I clicked the file a complaint link, it said it was already received, so I couldn't add anything.
I can't verify that any of the information I found on any of the websites is accurate, I can just tell you what I did and what I found. I'm not sure what I want to do next time the number calls. Probably just let it ring. They never leave a message.
[UPDATE 10:30pm - they called again this afternoon after I posted this as I was about to walk out the door. I answered and this time there was a person on the other end. It turns out these people now do Costco credit. Last month I didn't get my Costco bill on line and when I emailed them, they wrote back and apologized that none of the online bills had gone out. (Because HBSC took over?) I called back yesterday to find out what the story was and settled the bill. There was no way I should have had these jackals calling me at this point. Now I have to figure out to whom I should complain about this at Costco.]
