    I just got a phone call.. it was a recording. All it said was "This is a final attempt to reach you about your credit card. If this attempt is not successfull, your credit card interest rate will not be lowered. Press 1 now."

    And the phone number is: 150622854550

    12 digits. Obviously a scam of some sort.. I imagine the next step would be to enter your credit card information. I hate people.

    But I was trying to figure out what country the call came from.. there's no + at the beginning.. so..? A web site to break it down would be kinda neat.

    nah, it's the wrong number of digits. that's why I'm confused.

    15-062-285-4550 ?

    if it's country code 15.. well that doesn't exist. if it's 1 1-506.. it's the wrong number of digits to be Canada, and if it's Costa Rica (code 506), it should have had more digits in front of it (or a plus sign)

    so I guess it's Costa Rica.. 1-506-2285-4550

    but it should have had a + or something
