GE Capital Bank called to confirm a purchase I made after opening a new account with them. Everything was legit.
Called at 830pm 10/21/2013 There was no one there but my normal way of answering was until today "Paul ********* speaking". Picked up second call 20 minutes later and there was an automated message played in female computer voice. " This message is for (using my name) and is regarding recent activity on my GE national card. Please call that number back." won't answer the phone with my name anymore..
6:32 pm: "This is GE Capital Retail Bank calling about recent activity on your credit card account". I don't have any credit cards. Will report them to FTC email@example.com, as well.
The call came 19:10 PST. A favorite time for telemarketing scum. Voice mail msg: "GE Capital calling about your recent card purchase". Reported them to FTC firstname.lastname@example.org.
Called to explain 0% interest terms on a recent purchase on my new credit card.
