This company called today claiming to be calling on behalf of United Technology. This number originates in Canada. Block the number as I am concerned this is a scam to find out your personal information.

I constantly get calls from this and other companies similar. I NEVER EVER PICK UP! In fact I have had the cable out of the wall,for the phone. The only time they even get through is while i am on the phone and call waiting. I then look up on computer and read ALL posts folks provide. Just as there are SO many posts here,most folks share the same dreadful experience! BY NO MEANS IS THIS LEGIT! If you read the web sight associated,it appears legit. However,apparently it is a TOTAL FRAUDULENT SCAM! I am convinced,now after a year,and extensive numbers..all web postings on an array of numbers folks say the same experience. The numbers and identities altered,but THE GAME IS THE SAME! HARASSMENT! I HONEST TO GOD BELIEVE THAT AN AN ILL ORIENTED DEVIENT INDIVIDUAL WHO SETS OUT TO HARASS YOU CAN! There actually must be phone numbers that you can purchase the actual service! THE SERVICE IS..HARASS ANOTHER! PEOPLE SELL THE SERVICE OF HARRASMENT! May sound paranoid? However,after a year,100,s of numbers..and a Devient individual who has been stalking me for the year..I FINALLY CONNECTED IT! Professional Stalking! Companies actually are paid to do this by the stalker! Why else in Gods Green Earth..would 75% of the folks say..they hang up! And NEVER leave voice mails!? A Authentic organization,paid on commision for "Surveys"..would NOT hang up! Gee..if that is how they earn a living..why hang up..and why NEVER leave a voice email! If this is happening to you,ask yourself,Is there somebody out there that is angry with me? Or ill oriented,family or "Friends"? This is my opinion and conclusion. Logical..why would any normal soul spend ALL day just calling numbers and hanging up? Proffer bogus excuses? I suppose changing your phone number,unlisting it,may protect you..? Possibly? For myself,unplugging the phone at all times is my only solution until my stalker is behind bars! Best Of Luck to ANY innocent folks out there with this scenario! God Bless!

It's a market research company called Ipsos. I used to work for them. We don't sell anything. The surveys we do are strictly voluntary, and you have to ask to be put on the Do Not Call list. All the numbers are randomly computer generated, unless the company we are doing the survey for gives us a list of numbers. We do not know ANY of your personal information, except your name (if given), and phone number. All of the information you give us is kept confidential, and your name is not linked to your info in any way. It's not company policy to leave a message. Many of the companies that use Ipsos do the surveys to gauge how well their products and services are doing, and to see if there are any complaints. They are designed to help people. One of the best companies I have worked for. The only reason I quit was because my wife got a job offering in another state, and Ipsos did not have a call center based in that state.

I live in Northern Ca(lifornia).
Recently, I called my Gramma and Aunt in Ontario.
There is no extra charges with my AT&T iPhone plan with calls to Canada.
I believe this a SCAM operation- not necessarily within the AT&T company, but working within their USA-Canada network- like a calling "cookie" that the scammer picks up.
This is my theory.
I BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NEVER ANSWER THIS- a caller-bot will recognize/register you as a potential "ear marker"- and potentially put you on other scammer bot lists.
IF PEOPLE, OR COMPANIES ARE LEGITIMATE AND WANT TO CONTACT YOU, THEY WILL LEAVE A MESSAGE.
Copy and google the number that tried to contact you- chances are... they are a scammer bot.

I received a few calls from this number and had never answered until today. As it turns out it was a survey taker to see how my recent inquiry to customer service at GM had gone and if I was happy with the treatment I received. Now if they had left a message the first time, then I would have picked up when they called and I heard the message being left on my machine. We have been getting so many of these "Credit Card Services" calls, that have nothing to do with our credit accounts, that we have stopped answering calls from unknown numbers.

Ipsos-Reid with a Survey on Behalf of Change Canada, doing a survey on Extended Healthcare facilities. Caller ID says "Unknown Name". Asked for Callback from Supervisor re call Process. Confirmed Company, and location. Location is 185 Carleton Street in Winnipeg MB, but they use the 514 number (or they claim) so that returned calls get either a live operator or a Recording saying who they are. Still a bad practice, not to have the name IPSOS-REID on the CALLER-NAME, Supervisor claimed that due to changing clients was difficult to change the name, again a BAD Practice, as the Nmae of the Survey co will not change too often. Preamble of agent was to long , asked to shorten.

This person did not leave a message. Keep a video camera by your phone. Record everything useing a speakerphone on your phone. Let them do the talking. They have to identiy themselves and the company they represent.Now you can tell them to place you on a DNC and if they call again you have proof to take them to court. Send this video to the Atterney General office for your state. If enough people complain action will be taken, but you need to provide proof. If you contact the police department they will charge you 10.00 a phone call to be traced.

As mentioned in my previous comments from October 2009 and January 2010, this was Ipsos Reid's Loyalty Research division calling with a survey (this time about grocery buying habits). See for more info: http://www.ipsos.ca/en/research/loyalty/

I cut the agent off and asked to be removed from their calling database. She thanked me for my time, then ended the call.

Although everyone finds these kind of calls annoying, survey companies don't care and will keep calling as long as they can get useful answers for the businesses who hire them to ask the questions. So why not turn the tables on them for a change and have some fun while you are at it?? Give them fake answers! Keep them on the phone! Make them waste their time and money!
How much income does my family make? Why we have millions, we just won the lottery! Is there someone over 18 we can speak with? You hand the phone to one of your kids. Do you prefer Brand A or Brand B? Neither-I buy Brand C because those others are horrible!
The point is, use your imagination and have fun with these companies who waste your time. Think of them as the monkeys who dance for the organ grinder instead of the nuisance that interrupts your family dinner time. If enough people give these companies bad or useless answers they will stop calling!

Call was sent to a special extension set up for telemarketers and solicitors. Our corporation policy does not allow us to participate in Surveys. Caller identified himself as Jason Boss from Ipsos Reid and gave us a phone number to call with a reference number if we wanted to participate in the research/survey. He was very professional (unlike many others who leave messages). We will not be calling back!

This Number 514-904-3190 called my home Jan7/10. A male voice claiming to be from the Federal Government of Canada was calling and that someone in the house-hold over 18 MUST answer a 15 min-20 min survey. Verbalizing in a very aggressively demanding manor and repeatedly insisting that someone in the household MUST answer his questions. I asked several time for him to clarify who was calling and he would only answer” It was the Federal Government of Canadian phoning on official business”. I asked him respectively if it was the Harper Conservatives organization calling. he would only answer that it was the Government of Canada calling and said that, if I thought that they (conservatives) was the Federal Government of Canada, then it was but at no time would he admit that it wasn’t and would state, it was the Federal Government of Canada phoning on official business. He would not identify what area of the Federal Canadian Government was calling. I told him that I wasn’t interested in talking to the Federal Government of Canada. He then insisted that I give him a time for when the Federal Government of Canada would call back. I said again that I was not interested in talking to him. He then insisted that someone other than me that was over the age of 18 would have to talk to the Federal Government of Canada if I refused. At this time I told him that I was not interested in any one in my house hold speaking with him and then politely hung up the phone.
The heavy handiest of this phone call was left me traumatized and fearful that our current ruling conservative government will somehow jeopardize me and my family with and possible future repercussions.

Got this call the other night, the woman was very pleasant, talking about a survey and if the man or lady of the house was in. For some strange reason I felt like being silly, so I told her that I was the butler and I would take a message. When she asked when the man and lady of the house would be back, I answered "They're in Paris for six months." The lady sounded surprised, but still pleasant, thanked me and hung up. LOL. I live in Texas, by the way, so was surprised when my caller ID said "Quebec".

These calls appear to be from the "Loyalty Marketing Research" division of Ipsos Reid. Apparently, they want to know if I'm satisfied with the service that I've received from my bank.

Like the others who've posted here, I don't discuss my banking habits with strangers, so I declined to participate in their survey. However, their questions did seem kind of innocuous. Telling someone that I'm happy/unhappy with my bank doesn't seem to be the kind of thing that a scammer would be interested in. :-)
