Got my first call from "Plant Test PQ" from # 514-958-0000 today. Got a fax tone when I picked up. I tried calling 3 different number removal phone numbers as well as Eva K's and all come back saying the number is not valid. This seems to be a growing trend all through Canada. These days with the economy crashing in countries all aroung the world, more and more business owners are signing contracts with unscrupulous "Mass" faxing/advertising agencies and don't care who is being called just as long as there getting the cheapest price possible.

For the past 3+ years my office has also been getting faxes to our rollover business talk line from advertisers using a company called BroadFax aka BroadFX.com aka Rainbow Software Inc. in Vancouver Brittish Columbia with numbers such as 604-630-9786, 604-637-8439 and 604-637-4703. I have called this company as well on numerous occasions and talked to Randy, Alon and Amy in an effort to have the calls stopped and thus have proven futile. Steps with the BBB and FCC have been taken but still I am recieving these "War-Dialing" fax calls.

Please, money concious business owners and sales people, be aware that any advertising agency you do business with will forever be associated with your business. Do a background check always before signing up with these kinds of people. If your from and/or live in the United States please only buy products and services from legitimate American businesses.

I have been getting calls from this number 514-958-0000 for the past three days. They call my mobile number back to back and it is a fax line that is calling. This is costing me money. Today so far, they have called 3 times and it is not noon yet.

6 calls between 8:51 and 9:15. All with long beeps. Caller ID sometimes read "Quebec 514-958-0001 and sometimes unavailable. I assume the beeps were for a fax. I do not have a fax machine.

I occasionally receive 2 junk faxes 2 days in a row at the same time of day from various numbers identified as Domain Registry Support regarding "Urgent Notice of Domain Extension" and "Final Notice of Domain Extension" for a website domain similar but not identical to one I own. They want me to register the new domain name with them to "avoid conflicting domain name registrations."

The Caller ID is always some random strange number (such 416-364-9999 and 514-958-0001) but the fax itself always says it's from some toll free number (changes for each set of faxes I get every few months, the last 2 sets claimed to be from 888-248-9510 and 866-340-1839).

This is clearly junk and they're trying to scare people into registering domains with them. Don't do it! I assume they obtained my fax number by looking up the WHOIS info for my domain name. I receive many similar junk faxes and mailings like these at the fax number and mailing address I use only for domain registration purposes.

THE NUMBER TWO PERSON AT THE FCC TOLD ME THAT THE REMOVAL NUMBERS ON THE JUNK FAXES ARE A RUSE. IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN YOU USE THEM, YOU ARE ACTUALLY VERIFYING A GOOD NUMBER AND THEY HAVE NO INTENTION OF REMOVING YOU. SO DON'T DO IT. ACTUALLY, MY BROTHER FAX USES PASSCODES, SO I SET IT UP TO ONLY RECEIVE AND PRINT OUT FAXES THAT HAVE THE CODE I SET. I SIMPY GIVE PEOPLE MY FAX CODE AND THEY CAN GET THROUGH. NO MORE JUNK FAXES FOR ME BUT DO NOT USE THE FAX REMOVAL NUMBERS AT THE BOTTOMS OF JUNK FAXES.

All I get are beeps and these calls usually come in the morning after I've left for work - between about 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., Pacific Standard Time. Very annoying. When I call back the number (which only is obtainable for certain of these calls), it says "Your call cannot be completed as dialed." Verizon says they can't do anything but they were sympathetic. The calls are annoying (duh)!!!

Don't be deceived by the phone number and other information at the top of the fax. The fax machine owner can put any number they want to in their fax machine which will be printed at the top of each fax they send and they can change it any time they want to.

Calling the tollfree number just reassures them that the number is valid and increases the frequency of calls. Returning a fax lets them know you really do have a fax machine and encourages them to send more faxes. Responding to faxes by using the contact information on the faxed letter lets them know you both receive and read these faxes and creates a frenzy of repeat fax attempts. I have received these faxes so often on my cell phone that I have entered them in my cell phonebook as "do not answer-harrassing fax".

If anyone is receiving calls from 514-958-0000 or 514-958-0001 you should know that these calls are coming from a company selling the Dish Network. If you the phone and get a sales person, you can play along with them to find out on whose behalf they are calling. I finally figured out that my last 10 calls have been for Marrik Dish Co. Seeking to sell me Dish Network. The guy gave me the number to a gay sex line to get removed from their list. (no offense but that is really not my preference)

Their number is 866-WITHDISH. Let them know how you feel. You can even email them from their website at www.withdish.com.

You can also contact the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). These agencies seek to curb organized telemarketing crime in Canada through the joint operation of the PhoneBusters National Call Centre (PNCC) which is supported by members of the Deceptive Telemarketing Prevention Forum.

It collects consumer complaint information through its 1-888-495-8501 toll-free number.

Hi, I have been getting calls from these stupid people for 6 months now! Its crazy!
I've reported them, guess I'll have to wait and see.
I tried calling 800-958-1804 as recommended...I waited 20 mins, a lady came on with a french accent. She asked for my info but I got to the point about the calls, she tried redirecting me which led to three pre recorded choices, all about your credit card. Which is no help. Eventually it tried redirecting me back to a sales rep/help desk whoever it was in the first place. Waited another 30 mins...and then gave up.
Someone needs to make a petition with a database of all the numbers that are connected. Instead of spreading it out over all these different sites. I'm not sure who to go to about this, I contacted the DMA about it and sent them this site. I hope something is done!!!!!!!!

Called North American Bancard at 866-694-5333 to have my phone number removed from their marketing list. All my numbers are on the Do Not Call list but they were calling anyway. They also use 514-958-0000 to call from. I've received fax calls from these numbers for over a year. Thanks for the post about NAB. We'll see if this works to stop the annoying calls, day and night, many times a day.

todays fax call is for 48red (www.48red.com or 1-877-879-7872). If you are being harrassed by these people, they already have your number. Why not call them back and let them know how insensitive they are being? Of course, the representatives who answer the phone are not sincere or apologetic, but if more of us make an effort to let them know that they are using a shady scam of a marketing scheme, then maybe they will start to listen. This company is also directly related to www.48longstems.com.

However, I received another call from them 3/20307. I called the number again, went through the automated system again, and received a message that said my number is already on their do not call list!!!!!!

This morning I got three calls. Two were unavailable and one was from 514-958-0001. I went online to do some research about this and found that people were recommending that I call 800-958-1804. I did this and was put on hold for about 20 minutes. Apparently, the company that uses this number is Bank of America. A woman finally answered and asked for my credit card number. I immediately told her about the automated faxes and she put me on hold again. After she got back on she told me to give her my contact info so that she could put me on their do not contact list. What I find interesting is how shady she was acting once I brought up the faxes and that she didn't deny it.

I am receiving calls from "Unknown" then from 514-958-0001 showing up as "PLANT TEST PQ". They sound like fax calls (series of long beeps), but I've tried to get my fax to answer them and they always result in an error. This has been going on every day for a week now. The Unknown number calls with the beeps, then the Plant Test number calls right after, with the beeps. I'd like to *beep* them (or should that be BLEEP!).
