The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
B C | b.c. | BC | BC 640-484-8064 |
bc calls from 15 phone numbers:
You don't grow what people are now.,
This number has called me about 4 times, they never leave a message and they call at random times.
Got the same call.
If you want to remove yourself from all SQM surveys, simply remove yourself from their list. Easy as 1, 2, 3
I did not answer the phone and looks like I will not going for forward unless I decide I want to know who gave them my number so I can get upset with that supplier of mine.
who are these jokers? if they are going to call, the least they could do is leave something other than a "hmmph" on my line - which, by the way, is an unlisted number... so how did they get it?
I've read the other comments here - I know not to answer the phone. Thanks!
Number 604 606 7888 called us they sell the rhino printers head office number 203 ) 355- 9000 if u keep getting bothed like us by telemarketers phone this number.
For all the rhinos out there stop bothering people.
Actually, the REAL person is not at fault here. The real owner of this number, Which is provided by Telus, has been receiving calls due to some scammers duplicating his number and faking calls from it.
I have talked to the real owner of the REAL number and it's really sad. He has been bombarded by calls from people like me, who have been getting calls from HIS number. He has tried to explaining that HE is not the one doing this, but he has fallen victim to these ASSHOLES who are seriously going over board!!!
THIS is a good example how these F'ing idiots are abusing real people and their real phone numbers. They do now have the ability to put any phone number they wish as their outgoig CALLER ID number... yes... EVEN YOURS!!!
Oh and just so you all know... our amazing Canadian Gov. is not only NOT trying to put an end to this BS! but is actually going to make it LEGAL for these same assholes to be able to LEGALLY push their BS to your CELL phones!!!!!!!! I WONDER IF IT'S BECAUSE OF THE EXTRA TAXES!!????
Seriously, I for one am F'ING sick of this BS!!!!
I now use CallClerk to block these F'ing F'heads!!!!
calls come in at least every 2nd week sounds like voice mail no idi keep hanging the phone
After I received 50 yes 50 fucking call from this number I was choked.. I called the number back only thing I got was a busy signal.. I googled sqm and called the office where the calls were coming from ina town call Vernon B.C . I then spoke with the office manager 'Laura Pow' and asked her why they kept calling and I was shocked by hey answer the stund cunt tells me that it is none of my concern.. I was shocked what a fucking Cunt..
Non stop calls fron this number avarage 10 to 30 tims a day for the past year. Each thime the I would answer the phone theese assholes would just hang up. I found out who there are. SQM group in Vernon B.C Canada. Cell phone providers Rogers and Fido hire SQM group to do 'Surveys' about the custmer service.. After doing some research I have found out that it is a violation of the contract and Violation of your privacy for any cell phone company to give out your personal number for any reason.. Take a stand people and contact the office of the presadent of your cell phone providers and ask why the give out your personal number and info.. Its against the law here in canada.. Thank you I hope this info has helped..
we had a good talk, he was a bit lonely but so am i, i hope he is cute when he comes to flashme.
I spoke with this firm...
I am in Montreal and they called me on the 5th of October, 2012.
I selected the option #1 after listening to their pre-recorded message and was then transfered to an obviously confused telemarketer located in India.
The company goes by the name MAPEL .
BEWARE: THIS FIRM IS NOTHING BUT A SCAM!
They claim to lower credit card rates (yet they hope that you will disclose your credit card number and personal information).
I spoke with an Idian female agent who provided me with the name of a French Canadian Female. (yeah right).
I am going to once again alert the Canadian Do Not Call registry however I feel that the DNC list is once again unable to curb the behaviour and tactics global scam artists!
Who is this and why are they calling
Hi young women of Montreal
There is a handsome technician in communication (the one who installs your new telephone line at home). He is ~6 foot tall. He is a rapist and a serial killer. His mother is French Canadian and his father is Greek. If you receive calls without any speaking, be careful, you are his next victim. The day, he will ring at your door, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. Do not use your phone; you will not have the line because he might disconnect it. Use your cell.
P.S. Those calls have nothing to do with your credit or telemarketing. He stands in communications room, connects his phone and uses the line 250-453-2289 or others lines in Montreal, one in Toronto or one in Florida etc. No policeman can catch him.
Called the no. and it is not in use !!! someone is using this number for call display... do not answer it must be a scam
The message :Last call to offer to offer something concerning credit card and request to press 1 for more details
The number appearing is 1-250-453-2289
Call received 2012-08-27 at 19h39
My postal code G1H 4H2
This kind of message In English should not be permitted in French speaking area like Québec City
Caller ID says Ashcroft BC. On many other sites this number is reported as a credit card scam.
Case and desist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
unknown area #
Collection agency on behalf of the City of Manteca. When I would not give Nicole my mailing address on a disputed account (I had moved 3 months prior to what they were trying to collect on) she told me to have a great day and hung up on me. Nice customer service.
I am sick and tired of these daily, intrusive calls well into the evening. Stop this calling!
If you go to sqmgroup.com there is a contact page to have your number removed from their calling list. We will see if they respect the request. Never have anything to do with Rogers Communications they are outright crooks impossible to deal with and are forever changing your contract to keep you on the hook for as long as they can paying their overly high fees for no service.
I cancelled my Rogers services 6 months ago and now they are calling to get my business back.......I swore I will never deal with these a-holes again....and I won't.
Recorded message that mentioned Amerihealth.
Did not recognize and did not answer.
I don't know anyone from Vernon, BC and where did they get my unlisted number from? I didn't answer it because I figured it was a scam call.
I've received calls from this number before and have never answered them thanks to info from this site. If I am close enough to my fax machine, I press the on-hook or answer key and let the call go through the fax machine. They usually stop calling my house after they get the fax sometimes they try a second time and if I do the same thing I do not hear from them for at least one year. Good Luck.
I got a call from same number,yestoday and today, what is happen?
I got a call from this number today, but I don't recognize it.
SQM Group - Survey Call Center
If you don't want them to call again:
I just got a call from this number on my cell, didn't answer because I didn't recognize it. Glad I checked here~ thanks for the info everyone, i'll be sure to add this # to my contact list titled 'solicitation;do not answer';
Yeah, got a call from this number too and didn't answer it. Called back got busy signal. I am on a do not call list.
They just don't get it - But Washington says its OK for them to call you on behalf of someone you spoke with on the phone (maybe 10 years ago) enev if you are on the DNCR.
WRite your Senator and Congressman and the Prez and the FCC and the FTC - not that I believe it will do any good because they don't give a hoot about what you or I say anyway...
This is an automated customer satisfaction survey from Rogers after you have called their call centre. It took about 30 seconds before the automated program kicked in and the response times after entering numbers was very very very slow. Eventually, the automation hung up on me after I pressed a bunch of keys. Overall, a crappy system that is a waste of Rogers money and your time.
Received a call on my cell phone this morning at 9:45am. I did not answer because I did not recognize the number. They did not leave a message as is usual with telemarketers.
It was Jesus
CALLED MY CELL - NO MESSAGE LEFT - CALLED BACK - GOT A YOUTH ON THE PHONE - HE HAD JUST TURNED ON HIS CELL AND
HAD NOT MADE ANY CALLS.
Nobody said anything when I answered and said hello.
Jais eux lappelle le 2 juin 2009 4 foix qui on appelle jais pas repondut tres bizzar il on appeller sur mon autre cell jais repondut il mon dis mon nom pis il on racrocher ??????
Here is the website with all the names of "key personal" that work at this annoying place, seems how they all have there names there I think I will look a few names up and give them a call around 2 or 3am and ask them why they keep calling when I am on a DNC List ....www.sqmgroup.com luck everyone! :)
Have been getting calls from this number every day for the past 4 days, it does not show up on reverse look up. I never answer unsolicited calls from out of province or 1-800, 1-888 or any of those, most often it is a telemarketer wasting my minutes and time, oh wait those are the same hahaha. PAIN IN THE ***
didn't leave a message. i called it back and it gave me a recording. the recording gave me a website to go to so i did and this is what i got and it also says its not a telemarketer and the number is just doing a survey of some sort.
I just received a call from this number on my mobile phone, no message left. I live in Richland, WA, USA.
Info seem to be available on Intelius but I don't want to pay their price. For all I know they may be up to no good to get people to find the answer on their site and they make money off of it.
I received a call but no message was left.
who are they?
This number 250-260-3907 has called me twice over the past few months, and second time today Saturday April 3rd 2010 @ 5:19PM.
Did'nt answer cause of everyone's comment's.
NO message left
Some information for new people to this thread
Are you wondering why you received a call from SQM Group from phone number 250-260-3907?
It is because we are calling you to conduct a short customer satisfaction survey about a recent call center experience that either you had or someone else had using your phone number.
SQM Group is not a telemarketing organization. We are a customer satisfaction research organization that conducts customer surveys on behalf of major organizations' call centers.
Visit www.sqmgroup.com to have your name put on the Do Not Survey List
Thank you to the person who researched BCPF to find that it is a "non-profit" which raised $3.8 Million in 2008 but only made grants in 2008 to 5 nonprofits totaling $550,000.
Even better to learn that in 2008 BCPF also paid $2.3 MILLION to Legacy Marketing for "outreach services."
And you truly became my hero when you wrote: "Where are the books and records of BCPF? At 2401 Hewitt Ave in Everett, WA. What is the address of Legacy Telemarketing? 2401 Hewitt Ave, Everett WA. Oh, and who is "partial owner" of Legacy Telemarketing? Why, surprise, it's Jim Paton the Executive Director of Breast Cancer Prevention Fund!"
Next time they call, I'll be sure to pick up. Not to donate to good ol' Jim Paton the scam artist, but to tell them I'll be reporting them to my state's Attorney General. Does the BBB investigate "non-profit" businesses?
they didnt say a word, when I said Hello.
The caller was a survey group calling me on behalf of Xplornet, my satellite internet provider, to ask questions about my degree of satisfaction with Xplornet customer service, whom I had called the day before on a technical issue. Nothing sinister here.
This number called me several times? I don't know anyone in Vernon, BC. Stop calling me!!!
Answered phone. No one there, just a click.
I have a call from this # and no one talk. It been a few call. Stop calling and not talking.
calls everyday. when I answer, the caller hangs up without responding.
Forgive the length of message. I would like these calls to stop!

In reading the plethora of "rings, no message and hangs up" comments from this site and another with Notes on 800 numbers] -- here's information needing reconfirmation of below research (619#):
2009-07-16 05:49:56 UTC Maria
Breast Cancer Prevention Fund is a non-profit in Everett, WA whose Executive Director is Jim Paton. BC Prevention Fund raised $3.8 Million in 2008 and made grants in 2008 to 5 nonprofits totaling $550,000. In 2008 BC Prevention Fund also paid $2.3 Million to Legacy Marketing for "outreach services". Where are the books and records of BC Prevention Fund? At 2401 Hewitt Ave in Everett, WA. What is the address of Legacy Telemarketing? 2401 Hewitt Ave, Everett WA. Oh, and who is "partial owner" of Legacy Telemarketing? Why, surprise, it's Jim Paton the Executive Director of Breast Cancer Prevention Fund! Don't believe me? Read BC Prevention Fund's 2008 Tax return posted on its website, breastcancerpreventionfund.org.
Ok it happens Every Day! BUT WHY?
calls every night. no message left and just a click if answered.
No one there when call was answered. CID showed BCPF
i usually say I don't have time right now but if they could leave me their home number i would be glad to return the call at a time most convenient for me. (i.e. 3:00 am)
Caller hung up without leaving a message.
Call 1-800-446-2095 to be added to "Do Not call", lady was very polite and they were not talking chinese.
It is not the call centre's fault, they get hired by other companies to do a survey and they usually hire vunarable people with minimum salaries to do their dirty work. be polite to them
I got a call from 250-260-3907. I did not answer and they left a message in Chinese. It is the second time they have called me and I clearly speak English only and they keep speaking in Chinese. My answering message is in English and they leave messages in Chinese. Getting REALLY annoyed!!
This number did call me today> I called back, stayed on the phone listened to their message, and at the end of the message it does ask if you want to be removed from their call list. you can do this right on the phone, if you do not have a computer to go online to take your number off their list.
what is this and why do they call my house everyday when we answer they hang up they call 2 times a day for over 2 weeks getting fed up
called cell phone, no msg left.
This was an unknown caller. I hung up prior to listening to anyone speak. It was a long distance call from BC. It mostly likely, due to the below comments, had to do with Fido as I subscribe to them and in the last week contacted their customer service dept 3 times.
I have one relative that lives in BC so what Im gettin calls about is crap....This I think is the 4th day in a row I have received a call now and have not answered. If this is a political phone call, first, its too late, second, Im Canadian, from Ontario....so it doesnt familly or legally have anything to do with me.....Again, this stuipid csll came from 250 260 3907.If i receive one more call I will report you.
A lady from their billing department have called me on my AT&T Cell Phone and left a voicemail about payments overdue for Long Distance services.
However, I am in Texas and I never dealt with a Canadian Cie in BC ... so we will see if they call back.
Got a call today... second day in a row! I try to call back and it's busy!
this is a company called CVB Collections out of Vancouver, BC
And as a funny aside, I just googled their information and went to their so-called DNC list, and I got a page that said my number was removed from the site, without putting any info in. Must be that new fangled telepathy technology!
Call and hang up. Why call if you are not going to talk?
Just called, asked for me specifically, hung up when my wife asked if they wanted to leave a message.
This, over a year after the last comment...
Called 250 260-3907 then 321 753-9690 (survey crap) after talking with Rogers, lets all hook or computer to the phone line use the program termial and redial 99 times 1-800-446-2095 and bug the crap out of them, and for a follow-up do Rogers just for good measure.
Rogers get a grip.
Had a call today showing this number. Researched - it is a company called Service Quality Measurement based in BC. They are not telemarketers and here is how they describe themselves on their site:
"Are you wondering why you received a call from SQM Group from phone number 250-260-3907? It is because we are calling you to conduct a short customer satisfaction survey about a recent call center experience that either you had or someone else had using your phone number. SQM Group is not a telemarketing organization. We are a customer satisfaction research organization that conducts customer surveys on behalf of major organizations' call centers."
You can put yourself on their Do Not Call list and they say they will remove you within 24 hours. Here is the link to the DNC page on their site = www.sqmgroup.com I am probably on the list as I told Bank of Nova Scotia to take a flying ### because their calls to solicit bank business were driving us nuts. The telemarketing legilslation in Canada has no teeth whatsoever.
I input our number today, guess we will see what happens!
The company is SQM Group in Vernon, B.C. Use this web address to put your number on their DO NOT CALL list.
I answered in French, and they hang up! Is there someone that could tell us how to overload their network just in calling a certain number. It would be great for all of us!
From (250) 260-3907 - don't answer calls from that and many other sales / surveys / etc numbers.
They get paid to call us - if they pay me I will talk - not interested in making them money if I don't get 1/2
Using my airtime minutes for nothing...
Try to research if it is cellphone or landline....
unknown call from BC, Canada.
Unknown number from 250-260-3907 dialed my cell, but didn't leave a message. Called the 1-800-446-2095 to get off their call list. Didn't ask how the unknown company got my "cell" number which is unlisted. Isn't the DNC list supposed to stop these unsolicited calls? Takes 24 hrs to get off of the list.
I phoned them back to see who it was -- an automated voice answered "something QM.. "We take surveys for companies that have been called your number or have been called from your number" basically that's what it said... I didn't stay on to pursue it - just added them to the dnc list.
was called by this number and when i answered there was no one there.. if you read all the comments someone has a link copy and paste this and enter their do not call list..
Im sure my name was entered by GOOGLE.. i was looking at working from home on line and got a call from them and then all the calls started after my number is unlisted and the ASSHOLES at GOOGLE sold my name becaues I didnt want to join their scam and pay 80$$ a month to work for them ..
just incase google reads this "GOOGLE HAS BEEN DELETED FROM MY COMPUTER IT USED TO BE THE ONLY SEARCH I USED, I TELL EVERYONE I KNOW AND WOULD LIKE TO TELL THEM TO GO f**K THEMSELVES"
Extremely rude and ruthless collection agency. The man called me a liar and tried to intimidate me.
Thx for the info called the 1-800-446-2095 number and will be taken off all list with in 24 hrs
CALL 1-800-446-2095 and ask to get off the calling list ffs...
i got call too from 250.260.3907
i hate those people.
I get these calls too. They are from SQM (Service Quality Measurement Group).
Check out their website. They are supposed to represent a bunch of companies.
To get off the calling list call 1-800-446-2095.
Remember to ask that you be put on the Do Not Call List for ALL companies that they are AFFILIATED with
I get a call from this number every day at around 12:20 - 12:30. I never answer, but when I tried calling back I got a busy signal.
When I answered the phone, no one on the other end responded.
This number calls me all the time without fail at 12:30 pm. I registered my number on the do not call list, we'll see if it works. Going through their website its hard to believe this company is as great as they say they are, due to all the technical problems they are having. Its like getting prank hang up calls everyday - totally annoying!!! Telemarketing for any reason should be not allowed!!!!! If a company wants to rate their service the company themselves should do it... at least then you can trust where your information is going to some extent!!!!!!
The company is SQM Group in Vernon, B.C. Use this web address to put your number on their DO NOT CALL list.
someone called me from this number and when i received,it was hanged up.
Picked up the call and just heard a clicking noise.
Called it back - it is (allegedly) a service re. "customer satisfaction" and offers a removal option, just follow the menu
Please stop calling me. I suspect this is a salesperson - ?? Verizon/????
Caller from Vernon to Ontario home number on May 21/09 didn't leave message. No reverse phone lookup. I view it as suspicious.
This call was another in response to the issues I have been having with Rogers/Fido -- This is a very poor way of overseeing that customer service personnel are doing their job.
these bastards are calling claiming wanting to do a survey for my recent call center customer service contacts, the only one I have called is shitty Capital One for a credit limit increase and they have not given me one in 4 years and i paid every month on time and never got a increase they still refuse to. Do not accept anything from capital one they report on your credit only what you owe not your on time payments or credits available. Capital one sold my number now it appears to these survey fucks out of vernon british columbia. PERSONALLY I DO NOT TALK OTHER COUNTRIES ABOUT MY REALTIONS WITH US BASED COMPANIES ITS SIMPLY NONE OF THERE BUSINESS BUT SHOWS THE EXTENT SHITTY capital one goes to extort your information to others. Never asked me if its ok either. I closed the card out today and wont pay them a red cent ever again. CAPITAL ONE SUCKS
I wondered who called... Well if it is Rogers/Fido they are calling because of long term customer service issues that began because I assumed or took over the service (and contract) from someone leaving the country. All I ever got was unfulfilled promises of resolution to the problems and once again they are compounding. Yesterday I terminated all of my services with Rogers and Fido. It appears that now they want an independent body to evaluate and report on their shenanigans. OK next time they call I might answer.
If you are a T-Mobile customer, there is an excellent solution. The Samsung T-109 has a blocking feature where you can block an unlimited amount of specific #s. Legal Debt Assistance is the name of the company that is harassing people with their calls, and they call from multiple #s. I plan on getting this phone since I am a T-Mobile customer and blocking every call from the scum company.
I wish these calls would stop
They perform follow ups for Rogers and other companies after you have called that company's call centre/tech support
They company is NuHavens, LLC and they are registered in Nevada. Their website is www.NuHavens.com - I spoke with a guy named Daniel. They hire attorneys to solve debt problems yet they contract with marketing firms that violate countless telemarketing laws. They have knowledge of the violations by their insistence that you waive your rights to not be called before they speak to you.
Their online data is here, esos.state.nv.us
This number has called me over 40 times in three days!!! Every time there is dead air.
...and here's the one everyone knows already:
This database doesn't do as much as reporting directly to the government (ftc, fcc, fbi). donotcall.gov is good but they don't do much other than just take notes, although better than here also. :) Here is how to report so do it to all of these gov't organizations if you want this to stop:

>604-621-9731 / 6046219731 Phone Number Details
(According To 21 People)
(According To 118 People)
Spoofed Numbers: Caution, 604-621-9731 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain, but they failed... you can still file a complaint here to fight back against unethical telemarketers.
These people called me on my cell phone which I NEVER give to businesses, only family and friends, so I'm sure they're using an auto-dialer. The person on the recording claimed to be "Chris" with "Debt Reduction Service" and said to press "2" to be removed from their list. I did so which, in retrospect, was probably a bad idea. Now they know that my cell number is a valid number. Reported them to the Do Not Call Registry at: www.donotcall.gov
Yea...these douchbags have been calling my cell every week day night between 6:00-7:00 wasting my cell phone minutes! I have talked to 4 people 3 out of the 4 hang up on me right away. 1 person said she would forward my number to be taking off...nothing..these mother fo's keep calling...i filed a complaint with the do not call list & encourage everyone else to.
I agree WILL IT EVER STOP!!! -i have an idea...next time they call ...which will be tomorrow fucking night i am going to start talking to them pretending i have debt and try to get info out of them...they suck ass!!!
Somehow these scum sucking Bastar _ 's keep calling between 6:25 pm and 7:25 pm. I have tried the stern direct approach (hung up on !!) The "Hi - how are you approach (hung up on again !!) They just called again and I was near my computer and had to check them out. Always from British Columbia and the number 604 621 9731. Will it ever STOP !! And yes it is to my Cell phone.
Stop Callig my phone.. Im not interested in ur telemarkter!
I received an unwanted, unsolicited, pre-recorded call from 604-621-9731 purporting to be debt reduction service. This was on my cell phone and I am going to have to pay for this? I am not pleased.
They claim to be offering legal and debt reduction programs per their voicemail. Interesting as I have no debts....furthermore I am on the National Do Not Call List and have had no business with their company for the past 18 months, which puts them in violation of the law in contacting me. Being alleged attorneys, they should that. (Perhaps they will need debt services should they be heavily fined for breaking US DNC laws) I also filed a complaint with donotcall.gov.
this bastards call me every day - pressing 2 does nothing - pressing 1 gets you a person who says its a problem with the marketing company, and their sorry yeah RIGHT. IM SO PISSED - this is my cell they are calling!
It is a client survey firm - see www.sqmgroup.com
Recorded message offering credit card debit relief with their lawyer. Filed a complaint with donotcall.gov
These people "Legal Debt Assistance" have been calling my home EVERY DAY for the last 5 weeks!!! Sometimes twice a day too!! I press "2" to be removed from the list and they keep calling. I speak to a person and they still call! My wife even yelled at them a couple of weeks ago and they still call!!!!!!
We get this call at least once a day sometimes twice. I press #2 to be removed from the calling list but they continue to call. I finally pressed 1 to speak with someone and as soon as I asked to be removed they hung up on me. My husband did the same and theyt hung up on him too!
Didn't pick up. No message left.
You can report to FCC, "Do Not Call" lists, your Senator, heck, even tell Mr. Obama, but these kooks are breaking the law and don't care and they are getting away with it. What does that say about society in general and attorneys specifically?
left message about securing financial future
Just called tonight as we were eating dinner. left a phone message, part of which said we could press 2 to be removed from there call list. However the message being left was already in mid message once our answering machine started recording. MY really big problem is WHY do I have to press 2 to be REMOVED from there call list. I did not ask them to call.
good point, "nothing they can do about it". in other words they're control freaks.
This is probably a number for which "I" will get charged if it was accidentally picked up. Seriously, there should be greater penalty for such companies who are soliciting unwanted "anything"! I signed up for the DNC-list so that I wouldn't be hounded by these "Animals". The calls are now 2 to 3 times more than before I signed up. Make this illegal and have a hefty fine with "Jail" time to make this a more serious offence. They must think it's funny to get away with "Harrasment".
They just called me on my cellphone.. which is not given OUT ..YES..It was a recorded message.." we can help with Debt" I am glad I read this before I called back to request take off list.
Thank you to everyone, The info you wrote 'HELPED"
OK...a couple of things.
1)If they're using an automatic dialer (which I'm guessing they are), then they don't really know your number. The computer just starts at (for example: 630-000-0000 and goes to 630-999-9999). If you respond, then they have a "live" one.
2) They could be "stealing" the phone number that shows up on caller ID. That's not their number and they are probably in the US or India. But, with technology, they can take a number and have it show up on your caller ID. Many zombie debt collection companies do this.
3) Send letters to your state attorney general; your senators and your congress person; make copies for the BBB and FCC and why not send this info to news agencies. It might be an interesting story and would bring more attention to the problem.
4) Zombie debt collectors buy phone numbers of old debtors for pennies on the dollar. Wouldn't surprize me that they then, in turn, resell these numbers to other questionable people and companies. Nasty. And, with the economy getting worse, we're going to have more of these calls.
Called twice from this number. It' annoying!
This is the SQM group calling they perform satisfactions surveys for major company's
Unsolicited call on my cell phone, this has to be illegal.
Have received a call from them around the same time every day for the last week. I pressed 2 to be removed from their list and got a call the next day. That time I pressed 1 to speak with an agent. when I told her that I tried to get off the list she said it was a database problem and there was nothing they could do about it. Then she hung up on me. I tried speaking to an agent again today and was hung up on as soon as I told him I tried getting off the list.
didnt answer because i didnt reconized the number. They left recorded message that cut off mentioning help for debt using mortage.Never had this call before. 1/21/09 @ 1:54 pm central.
YOU CAN GET THEM TO STOP CALLING! Go to: www.sqmgroup.com
Be aware that there are various ways out there to GET your phone number so companies in the US can all you, over which CRTC has no jurisdiction. This may be one of them. Going on to the Do Not Call List, gives your working phone number to a great number of undesirable companies who may ask for it; controls are inadequate in Canada.
FYI companies call and hang up just to get confirmation that it is a working number, then target yo for later, or sell the information to other unscrupulous telemarketers in the USA. God Bless America!

This is a SURVEY company. If you've EVER bought a product from ANYWHERE and given your number to the company for any reason, incl for warranty purposes, you may get a call from this number. Many big name companies will contract out to these companies to do their surveys, evaluate the surveys and provide feedback to the company for improvement. My number is also an unlisted cell. I recently bought a washer/dryer. The company called to see how my experience was but I hung up.
called and hung up after i did answer
Called back and got the Breast Cancer Prevention Fund
Attached to BS survey that keeps coming up 000-0000, they say you will get a free cruise if you do the survey but don't tell you who they are. If this is legitimate then they should stop operating like a identity theft boiler room and the companies behind it should shut it down. I get calls every day and I am on the do not call list.
no idea didn't leave a voicemail
no one spoke and my number is on a do not call list!
This is a serious nuisance caller .... Complain! Perhaps they will quit this practice.
did not answer. why am i getting call from vernon, bc?
RE: Lee--British Columbia was shown as the caller. I will report them to the FCC. Reporting to do not call is a waste of time. FCC actually does something.
What exactly do you expect either the FTC's or your state's DNC program to do? The calls appear to be VOIP (internet) calls from a phone company in British Columbia. Would you like the DNC programs to stop ALL calls from British Columbia, or even all of Canada? Even IF they ignored that Canada is another country and not subject to the US DNC laws, would you have them electronically jam all electronic transmissions coming across the border? Good luck explaining that to all the legitimate companies that do business across the border! Don't get me wrong, I think that the scum that discuise themselves as people that do this stuff should go to the deepest part of h*ll.
Regardless of who they are, they are still in another country and neither the FTC's DNC program nor the FCC has jurisdiction outside the US.If youy come up with a LEGAL way to stop them, I'm sure that DNC programs all over the US would like to hear about it. Until then, try a little reality.
Recorded message: "You have been kicked from this conference" ????
Calls me anywhere from one to three times a day. Answered once but never again, in regards to an "urgent business matter".
If you really want to get to the bottom of this (and vent to a live person), I found these by googling the company in question:
Mike Desmarais, President, SQM Group
(250) 260 3920
Sarah Kennedy, Partner, SQM Group
(519) 426 3454
(800) 446 2095
Call them frequently....payback is hell!!!
debt assistance "punch 2 to be removed from this list"
They keep calling
is it a scam, do they use your telephone bill to steal?
CALLER STATED TO PRESS "2" IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO RECEIVE THIS CALL AGAIN. I PRESSED 2 AND HUNG UP.
This is the company's info:
Service Quality Measurement Group Inc.
101, 4609 23rd Street
Vernon, BC V1T 4K7
Caller ID: "BR Columbia Cal" 604-621-9731 @ 7:19 pm on 11/06/08.
No idea who this is.
Called with respect to an urgent business matter. Recording played three times asking me to hold for an agent, then disconnected.
My neighbor received a recorded call from this number. The caller identified himself using my name which immediately raised red flags to my neighbor. The caller said something like, "Do you want to be debt free? If you do, press 1". My neighbor hung up and called me immediately. I called the telephone company customer service person for long distance, who, other than being generally aware of a lot of this illegal activity, was unable to do anything other than verify that the 604-621-9731 number was invalid. The good news is that my neighbor did not touch 1. Who knows what have happened if she did??
i will record all in coming call from this number and file charges for harrasment. i will chase the origin of this call and start a court action
How do these people get our cell phone numbers. Definately need to be reported to the FCC. The will take care of it. They will at least investigate it.
report all calls like this to the FCC web site. they will follow up, do not call will do nothing
Just received the second call from this number.
British Columbia was shown as the caller. I will report them to the FCC. Reporting to do not call is a waste of time. FCC actually does something.
Would you believe: I am in Sweden, have a new phone number here that I obtained just a few weeks ago, and today I too received this "spam" phone-call-recording trying to sell me a debt-reduction service! How the heck did they get my number? What a nuisance.
I get this call every 5 days! I don't need help so STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and DIE!!!!!
They just called me on my cellphone which is on do not call :/
Collection co. regarding gym membership.

It was a customer satisfaction survey from Blue Cross Blue Shield.
They even called my Cell Phone. Reported them to National Do Not Call Registry. I suggest you do the same.
I pressed 2 amd hung up. I do not need help for my debt
Called at 5:47 pm PST. I didn't pick up and the caller left no message.
Got a call from this number today 604-621-9731
I got a call from this number on the same date 8/26 at 6:40 eastern standard time. I would love to know who they are, i missed the call
I answered. They hung up on me. If they are telemarketers they're not very good at it!
I answered. No one there! If they are telemarketers they're not very good at it!
Called today-didn't answer-no message. Will block with Caller ID Manager
Vancouver BC, here. Nobody on the line and no message. I'm not a happy camper cause I had to climb down a ladder and spilled paint in the process, all to answer this bogus caller. I just registered at the new "Do Not Contact" service offered by the Canadian Marketing Association at www.the-cma.org but note that this association represents the interests of telemarketers, not poor schmucks like us - so it seems a bit like having the foxes guard the henhouse. I filled out their registration anyhow and put a check "yes" in the "Is registrant deceased?" box. Hopefully that may douse their member telemarketers enthusiasm for awhile at least.
I get 2 calls a day. says unknown from 250-260-3907. no voice message- dead sileance when i answer. Telemarketers WANT To Talk.. so I dont think it is that. I figure, either its a malfunction in some market research programmed computer... Or we are being Flagged. Marked. because we have common triats of some sort: Dont ask me.. Ive seen too much of the Empires and 99% you likely wouldnt believe.
Don't know who it is and I am not answering it.
Blank message left on my voicemail for about 2 seconds.
Hang up call. Caller-ID said UNAS. No idea what UNAS is.
Just 3 minutes after leaving my comment on here, they called again.
Called fax line. No message left.
So, after receiving calls from this number several times a week and nobody answers, I came here to see what they wanted. Thank you ChrisMur for posting the sqmgroup.com link on your comment, I went there and found the do not call list, which actually tells you at the top of the page why you got a call from the 250-260-3907 number. I entered my number to be removed today, it says it will be removed w/in 24 hours, we'll see if it works. For anybody else here is the direct link to the do not call page for this company: www.sqmgroup.com
Y N'A TU QUI NON RIEN A FOUTRE DE LEUR TEMPS STIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII...
Got a call, missed it, and tried calling back, all I get back is a disconnected number sound. Tried reverse number and they have no listing of this number.
Picked up phone on first ring, no one answered. Caller I.D. shows it was from S Q M Group.
I found this about this company on the web:
Phoned at218pm on june 03/08 I live in toronto ON. left no mess.and just diplayed # caller unknown
Got a mysterious call from 250-260-3907 - called the number back ... only got a busy signal. I scan my calls and have no idea who this could be. Seeing that this number is on this website, I take it that the source is a mystery. Fido Phone. BC Can.
no message left... really annoying
I saw this number calling me so I picked up - the hung up on me when I said hello- then I tried calling back to find out who they are - steady busy tone
they came to my door, asked for me (i was not home) and left their number with my neighbour. i can't believe how intrusive this is! does anyone know who this is?
Christine from SQM Group, an independent survey firm. I hung up after that.
