I got the call today but didnt answer it. its the first time they are calling me everytime they call i am use not going to answer

May 26th, 2009 pissed off ON Canada

Calling our cell phones...won't waste our money picking up. Everyone should start calling SMT Direct with annoying questions like "Why can't you get a real job...McDonalds is hiring" or "Can I have your home phone number so I can call you at all times of the day and night with more annoying questions?". Better yet, call all the companies that outsource with them like Fido, Rogers, Primus etc...ask them for their home numbers too.

May 21st, 2009 scott BC Canada

I get woken up every fucking day by these assholes 9:30Am. I grab the cell thinking its employers calling (looking for a job right now) then I see the 800 number again, same time everyday, 2-3 times daily, non stop, wasting my god damn time

April 8th, 2009 ML AB Canada

I save the number in my contact list and assign it a silent ring tone, so now I don't even notice when they call. They can call all they want.

February 12th, 2009 MMM ON Canada

I have been receiving the calls from 800-336-1352 twice a day, it is Fido calling to ask if you are satisfied with your service, answer the call, tell him you are happy and they will leave you alone once and for all. I just reamed the guy a new hole and he assured me that the call will stop.

Otherwise if the calls do not stop, answer the phone and ensure they answer, place the phone mic up against your fire alarm in your home and press the button... and presto!

January 16th, 2009 Garry ON Canada

whoever calls 800-336-1352 number is BULL SHIT!!!!I dont have more words.

January 9th, 2009 ymic ON Canada

December 30th, 2008 tomas BC Canada

December 15th, 2008 who 02 Mexico

Been getting dailing calls from this # 18003361652 on my cell and don't know who it is and no messages left. annoying and good thing my phone is never tuirned on at all. Who is this and who is calling me?

December 9th, 2008 Annie QC Canada

They have been calling every day around the same time....on my cell. Called Rogers for help, totally not helpfull...charging me 5$ per month to block number... Refused their suggestion. I put my number on the no call list. To follow!!!!!

September 25th, 2008 A ON Canada

I called the number and took the option of asking to be removed from their call list within 24 hours--I had to give my name and phone number. They have been calling two times, everyday for a few days!!

September 18th, 2008 JHM ON Canada

I've started receiving calls from this (800) 336-1352 number a few times a day during this past week. I called Fido Customer Service and they said that this number belongs to a telemarketing company affiliated to them. They want to offer you up grades or stuff like that. I asked the girl at Fido Customer Service to remove my name from their telemarketing list and it only took me a couple of minutes to do that. I told her I have never had phone calls from telemarketers on my cell before I switched to Fido 2 weeks ago. I'm not impressed. I suggested if you want to keep customers you better not upset them. We'll see if the calls stop.

August 28th, 2008 Lee CA

Called (416) 485-6500 for SMT Marketing. Pressed 0 for receptionist (Michelle) and she took down my first and last name, and phone number. She said she will *make a note* of it for future call.

August 21st, 2008 ac BC Canada

Anyone know a way to get rid of these people? I want them to stop calling me 4x a day while I'm at work. It's annoying!

June 11th, 2008 Info 1 ON Canada

Simpro Solutions is not a sister company and Tony,Lou and Andy have nothing to do with SMT Direct. Tony used to be the President of SMT Direct but now the company is owned and run by A Pakistan based group and Farooq Bajwa.

Simpro Solutions deals with other outsourcing tasks. Get your information right .

April 28th, 2008 info ON Canada

They just have a sister company called SIMPRO SOLUTIONS.
Located at 905 King St. West, Toronto.
Also lead by Andy Jasuja, Tony Nadra and Lou Forget. Mar-Apr 2008, they're in the process
of hiring new employees to do tele-marketing or something like that.
You can also call their operation manager, Josh, (416) 627-4201.

March 25th, 2008 Julia ON Canada

How to stop it? I have to switch off my phone, because I have to pay for 1 min time, even if I don't take call. It is incredible discomfort

March 7th, 2008 Shelley BC Canada

Just keeps calling never leaves message

March 6th, 2008 Joanie ON Canada

I just called these jerks back and they have an answering service that allows to to have your name removed within 24 hours. So call the 800 number and leave them the direction to remove you from list

March 4th, 2008 Marv Canada

Some times I get as many as 4-5 call/day from that number. I went with Primus VoIP and it has a Consierge function. Now (800)336-13* is in my "virtual ring" list, ie. the phone ignores those calls completely.

received a vulgar message from this number on my answering machine. They called three times and left one short message.

January 29th, 2008 Dan ON Canada

Call me frequently- I don't pick up 800 number dials, but this is getting ridiculous.

January 26th, 2008 Kathy Campbell NC

I am being harassed by a private call number and need to find it

January 26th, 2008 david ON Canada

Very frustrating they keep calling me agai and again and i don't appricate what means no.

January 25th, 2008 Mel ON Canada

I called SMT direct (The number is listed below - Thank you for posting the number, Mad as Hell) and spoke to someone at the front desk who told me that they would delete my number withing the next 48 hours. The calls came to me on my cell phone. The charges were really adding up as I travel for work.

January 16th, 2008 Brian ON Canada

I, like many other people, receive these bloddy nusiance calls from this number,several times a week, and it's thoroughly pissed me and my wife off. Called company, spoke to person, said my number would be removed within 24 - 48 hrs. I'll believe when I see it!!!

December 22nd, 2007 Dennis BC Canada

Check out www.smtdirect.com and take note of their business "partners". These companies will use SMT Direct to sell you crap. Don't sign up with any of those cell phone carriers, don't sign up for an HBC card, and don't open a bank account at CIBC. Case in point: my phone carrier is Fido. I called them and told them I had been receiving unwanted 1-800 calls. I was put on hold and two minutes later I was told that I was removed from Fido's marketing lists and that if I'm still receiving calls 30 (THIRTY!) days later, then it's from a telemarketing company not affiliated with Fido and I will have to change my phone # because Fido doesn't block specific numbers. Very nice of the Fido rep to do that, but I called them wanting to block the number and they jumped the gun and removed me from their marketing lists without my asking. I didn't even suspect it was Fido but their actions proved that they're in part responsible for these relentless calls. Thanks Fido, you sure know how to retain customers. (Fido is owned by Rogers, which is also an SMT Direct Marketing affiliate.)

December 22nd, 2007 Dennis BC Canada

Hey, telemarketing, fine. Call me once. Don't call me 20 times in the space of a week, multiple times per day. And don't create such a shoddy system that when someone answers, your software is too insipid to even connect a call centre worker to the customer, leaving creepy dead air and wasting the user's cell phone air time.

December 22nd, 2007 Dennis BC Canada

I'm getting multiple calls a day from this SMT Direct. Only ever answered twice (out of about 20 calls now) and never got anyone on the line. I've called their main number (1-888-489-6856) and have never been redirected to a real person or to any information about removing my name and number from them. Their president and CEO Tony Nadra also wrote an asinine article defending his despicable business practices (http://www.dmn.ca/Articles/Articles/2005/december/cndnc.htm).

December 19th, 2007 Mike ON Canada

Check this out:


If anyone lives around the SMT Direct office on Yonge Street,I think you should find Tony Nadra's office (President), knock on his door and run away...everyday at 10:30am.

December 13th, 2007 sean ON Canada

if I find out this is indeed rogers calling me I'll cancel every service I have with them. so fucking annoying all they do is call and hang up at bizarre times of day.

December 12th, 2007 cc Canada

Got this call a few times recently which is annoying.

November 28th, 2007 Vic ON Canada

I got about 3 to 4 calls a days from this number. 1 in the morning, 1 at noon time and about 1-2 calls in the afternoon. It is so annoying. I did call the number back and left the message but it doesn't seem to have people to take care of it.

November 28th, 2007 ali ON Canada

they call and they don't answer for like 15 secs and then they hang up

November 16th, 2007 Prisca AB Canada

We are now up to 26 calls!!!!! I finally answered today. Said hello about 8 times and stayed on the line for about 2 minutes hoping someone would finally come on. Nope! Nothing!! From the information on this thread I am now emailing tony@smtdirect.com, the president of SMT Direct Marketing Inc. I want off this list now! I hope he gets hundreds of emails and phone calls daily from fed up people. I do not want to see this number on my call display again!!

November 8th, 2007 Prisca AB Canada

21 times in the past month. Very annoying :(

November 6th, 2007 not to call ON Canada

They had called me and I didn't want to write in so I just called their office and asked to be removed. They removed me from all their lists. They are a Canadian company that is operated in Toronto (and they are not spies for Primus and the American Government like some door knob mentioned above) All you have to do is pick up and say is DO NOT CALL ME and they have to take you off their list.

November 6th, 2007 Adrian Canada

keep calling my cell and then right after i get a text message i am calling with my dad and i am going to tell them if they dont stop i will sue for harassment cause its 2-3 times a day and i am getting quite sick of it

October 19th, 2007 Jen Johnston AB Canada

I looked this company up on the better business bureau and they have at least two complaints on them and are not a member.

If you call the number back, they say you can leave your number and it will be removed within one business day.

October 12th, 2007 PAUL W KINCAID Canada

If you do a whois search of their domain name smtdirect.com it declares that their server is on primus.ca (Primus is US owned). Ask the people you usually call and they too will have reported calls from them using your telephone number. They have access to your phone records and they are calling everyone on your phone bill and they display your number because most people will only answer a phone call if they recognize the number. Verizon, AT&T, Yahoo and Bell South are being sued for providing their phone records to the unlawful US spy program. Primus is obvious another company involved. Probably a trade off for helping the US spy on you.

October 4th, 2007 Benoit QC Canada

Same thing here, they called me once a day for 4 days now.

October 4th, 2007 Maureen AB Canada

Just rec'd acall from this Number

September 6th, 2007 Jay ON Canada

Having been calling every day this week; on caller ID, 800-336-1352 then my home number shows. They wanted to sell long-distance services.

September 6th, 2007 Tanya ON Canada

I have had them calling me and no response when I pick up. Their phone number is in the place of the caller name and my phone number is in the # spot. There is got to be something that we can do....

September 5th, 2007 kaiser MO

today i got 7 calls.. didnt pick up one.. cause i know this is a spam number... but it cant go like that.. its a harrasment for sure... any suggestions??

September 5th, 2007 mike BC Canada

called 3 times so far. caller id was as follows: 800-336-1352 then my home number. i believe in canada if you tell them to stop calling 3 times and they continue it is HARRASMENT!! i have yet to pick up the phone when they call. put a 1 infront of the # and do a search and lots of porno results, HMM.

August 23rd, 2007 Fran ON Canada

My caller ID showed my own home phone number - caller was Primus Long Distance telemarketer

August 15th, 2007 Susan Canada

Not only do they call almost every day, but they use my own phone number to show up on call display. It makes you think that there is someone else in your else, and it is ticking me off. Why can't bell stop it?????

August 2nd, 2007 Meagan NS Canada

These people have been calling me three times a day, every day, for the last three months. I never realized it as I was at work through the day, but now that I am not working for the summer they harrass me all the time! I keep asking them to take me off the list but I eventually end up hanging up on them because they are not helpful.

I asked them why they are never there when I answer and why it takes them 15-20 seconds to answer me when I pick up and they started explaining about their stupid computer program. I got pissed off at the guy and told him not to call back, then the same guy called me back 3 hours later. I was not impressed.

August 2nd, 2007 Jamie ON Canada

Been getting calls from this number constantly, always hang ups, to my home phone. never use FIDO so it must be something else. I'm going to send complaints to CRTC, Bell...and every company listed as a client on the SMT website. Would urge others to do the same.

July 23rd, 2007 nick Canada

non-stop. they keep calling from my house number and at the top instead of identification, it's their number. THEY WONT STOP.

July 22nd, 2007 Bob BC Canada

I called them back, got a voicemail from some strange lady....I don't know who she is, except she says her name is 'Pam' somebody.

July 19th, 2007 Alexx Canada

They keep calling my cellphone (for 4 days now) Im at work so i cant pick up...

July 18th, 2007 Jon Tan BC Canada

Yup i receive calls from these guys 4 times! And it is really annoying!

July 17th, 2007 Will Canada

Yes, I got it too. They are so annoying! I think it was after I started signing up online for various making money projects. Before that, Microsoft Midphase called me a lot which I didn't pick up. Must be similar company, but why would Microsoft be doing this too?

July 3rd, 2007 Pasha BC Canada

stupid guy calls me everyday. wasting my min's.
I trying to file a law suite, if any one interested , come forward , e-mail me at pasha_bc@yahoo.com

June 29th, 2007 Antoine Canada

I've been receiving calls from this number at least twice a day during this week. It annoys the sh** out of me. I called Fido Customer Service, and they said that this number refers to a telemarketing company affiliated to - and be prepared to hear that - FIDO themselves! I kindly asked the guy to remove my name from their telemarketing list and that's what he did...took me 2 minutes to do it.

June 27th, 2007 Konrad Canada

Called it and got a voicemail for "SMT Direct - Do not call line" thier mail box is full.

May 7th, 2007 Pavel QC Canada

I live in Montreal Canada and use FIDO as my phone provider.
Fido rep said that they did not give my phone number for any marketing purpose to anyone and suggested to contact and confront the company directly. Also said if that does not work - open a case with the police, then they (FIDO) can act on it,

Anyhow... I left a voice message to a number suggested here:

Mr. Tony Nadra, President and CEO
Phone: (416) 485-6500 x50
Fax: (416) 485-5635
E-Mail: tony@smtdirect.com

3 days later I received a call again. I call this number above one more time and finally got a person. Told him that I will open case with the police if the phonecalls don't stop and provided hime a number to remove from the call list.

Person on the phone assured me that the number will be removed....

wait and see now....

1. Call Centre Helper - SMT Direct partners with Zensar Technologies to provide BPO services in Pune, India
Published on: 6/29/2006 Last Visited: 7/31/2006

"Zensar Technologies, a part of the Fujitsu Group, brings a roster of blue chip clients, a wealth of information technology experience supported by highly scaleable offshore centers in India to the table while we provide our inbound/outbound expertise in voice contact services," says SMT Direct's president and CEO Tony Nadra. "It's clearly a win-win for both organizations as we build on the best of breed model."

The success of the Indian offshore outsourcing market over the past five years has proven that regardless of location, Voice and BPO services providers can match and exceed customer expectations by providing world-class services to major companies across the globe. As a result, there has been a boom in offshore and near-shore outsourcing delivery.

"We believe the telephone is still the best channel for companies to promote their products and services, whether it's an inbound customer call or an outbound marketing call," adds Nadra.

March 14th, 2007 Alison Reid

SMT Direct has called me at least twice today (morning and afternoon) and I know they've tried before. Only just now did I waste my money with *69 to find out who it was. Go to the Canadian Marketing Association (www.the-cma.org) and there's a Do Not Contact Service... SMT Marketing is a member of theirs, and this organization regulates their calls. It might take 6 weeks to work, but this hopefully will make it stop.

February 27th, 2007 anon. Canada

called my cell offering reduced price and some other improvements on cellphone package for Fido if i signed up a friend or family member with a new cellphone package. I basically said "no don't know anyone who needs a cellphone" they said "i'll call next week" ... am now ignoring the calls (saved # to address book and set ringer for that # to "silent")

This is someone calling on behalf of Fido. When you answer there is no one there.

January 9th, 2007 Andrew DC PA

Keep calling my cell while I'm at work the last 2 days, leaves a few second blank message.

January 4th, 2007 Gen QC Canada

They call me at least 3 times a day since last week! I don't answer anymore and they don't live any message on my voice mail.

January 3rd, 2007 Joy Canada

I am getting this as well. But more alarming, I had to contact the CRTC who regulate this crap, and complained about Teleperformance Canada - so now they aren't calling 3x a day as they were but a million other 1-800 numbers are, so they have obviously sold/traded them. I was told by one marketer that they "got" my # from Telus, because as she said, I don't own my phone # I just rent it. AAAHHH, and now I have to "write" to these people to have them stop. Who are they? Consumers need to do something these 1-800 numbers are the new lice or something. Lets all email them, I googled them and they are info@smtdirect.com - lets all email them 100x a day. This is getting beyond annoying.

January 3rd, 2007 Gen Canada

When I answer the phone there's no one there. After 10-15 seconds, the call is disconnected. This is a waste of my airtime (they're calling my cell phone)

December 21st, 2006 Tanna BC Canada

Received 6 calls from Dec 11th to Dec 14 and have received a call nearly every day since. Became suspicious because few times there was an answer on the other end. When making verbal contact they stated they were associated with a local Canadian phone company (Fido). Offering me a $300 phone.. etc.. I asked them for a number to call them back at and they stated that they could only schedule a call.

Very unprofessional, loud people. They're still calling.

December 14th, 2006 Jean-Philippe QC Canada

Call last 3 evenings at 21h and now at 16h.
Twice msg left as not hanging-off fast enough (or their robot though I was picking up)

December 9th, 2006 John M TX

Are these companies allowed to call us on our cell phones? We do pay for our services after all and some of us are on minutes.

December 6th, 2006 Lisa BC Canada

Yes, I called the number back and they are a firm called "SMT Marketing" who call on behalf of their clients. So they are probably an outbound call center flogging stuff from various companies. If you want to be removed from their "call list' you have to send them a letter, which they leave instructions on how to do so. Who made that rule up? Why do I have to waste my stamp?

I called the number back and they are some marketing firm located in Toronto. They want requests for removable from call list to be submitted to them by mail.
