    I am in need of a working phone number for First Equity Card. Here is the catch: I need to speak to a human (GetHuman was no help).

    I am receiving (on average) one credit card application a week from them and I am tired of it. On the application (back side of course) they list a phone number that is for information only; it leads no where no matter what I press.

    I looked the company up BBB, Wiki, About Us, etc. and any listed phone number (if any) is either disconnected or leads straight to voicemail.

    Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Also, does anyone remember where to go to submit yourself (or your company) to the list of do not send me credit card applications for five years?

    I forgot to mention that these invites were coming addressed to me/my company.

    Boo.

    However, that was the site I was thinking about and I submitted the opt-out again with the business address. Hopefully it's kick in and work. Thanks AZ =]

    Where did you obtain that number from? If you don't mind sharing?

    the wonders of google and finding creative quries. I found their corporate address and googled a reverse lookup off their address.

    edit: I called it just to confirm and it did prompt me to hit 0 for an operator..

    I tried Google, BBB, Wiki, GetHuman, etc. I guess I wasn't doing something right. Thanks Fitzy.

    Getting identity theft insurance will get rid of those pre-approved credit card offers. It's $5 to $10 a month and part of the service is to stop that junk mail. Of course that's not primarily what you're paying for -- they take care of everything if your identity gets stolen, and protect you up to $1M.

    Lots of insurance companies offer it, but not all of them offer the service I mentioned. The company that offers the above advertises on the radio station I listen to often, so I'll have to make note of the company name the next time I hear it. I'd like to research it a bit more to find out exactly what you do and don't get, but it sounds like a great thing.
