We haven’t had any credit cards in several years now, but a company called Card Holder Services (with whom we previously had an account) has been calling for aboiut a year now, telling us we can lower our rates.
It’s a robo call, so we’ve just been hanging up. Today I got tired of it, and listened to the end for the “press something to end this madness”. It said “Press 9 now to speak with someone about lowering your interest rates”.
I pressed 9 and immediately a guy came on and said “Did you press 9 to lower your interest rate?”
I said “Actually we closed our account years ago and would prefer not to be contacted again”.
I expected a hard sell, but he simply said in a rushed voice “All right enjoy your high rates goodbye” and hung up.
I appreciate the lack of a hard sell, but I think it’s pretty crazy for them to be deliberately snarky like that.
