Possible scam. Posing as credit card co
This "Unknown" number above, 1-604-251-1333 keeps calling us in Quebec & telling us we should call them to reduce our credit card rates. It's a girl's voice on the tape but says to press 1 to speak to someone else. I just hang up or don't answer when I see the number.
STOP calls like this by porting the abused number (yours) to a voip provider *with*
there are TWO parts to caller ID as this form suggestions: number & name. CNAM is the name portion.
most voip providers can filter on the number part of caller ID, very few can filter CNAM
I have used nearly a dozen pay as you go voip providers but I like
for it's graphical call flow user design
anveo DOES SUCK for: "requiring" you to pay [another] e911 fee. This is NOT part of the e911 law. If you already pay another voip provider for e911 you do NOT have to pay an e911 fee at every voip provider.
anveo DOES SUCK for only accepting paypal and google wallet, which in turn require you to either connect your bank account (bad idea) or send them a scan of your drivers license or passport (bad idea: http://419eater.com for examples why)
anveo is otherwise awesome: SIP TCP (necessary for smart phone voip)
with voip you can even re-route calls to places that'll get the caller (scammer) in trouble like:
* your state's attorney general office
* a federal department of law enforcement (fbi) or phone stuff (fcc)
those organizations will see the scammers callerid not yours
Your number in that situation is the OCN (Originally Called Number) but enforcement agencies will be quick to jump down the throats of the abuser/scammer/telemarketer
For debt collectors to whom you OWE play an automated announcement (taking NO message) informing them they may not contact you but only your lawyer (you'll need a lawyer)
voip is the power
for slightly less awesome voip WITHOUT CNAM filtering: voip.ms, vitelity, callwith.us, future nine

Got called saying they will reduce my Master Card or Visa interest rate. Got the name of the company ... Credit Card Services from Victoria, BC. I asked him since they called and wanted to do this to tell me what card I have. Of course ... got it wrong. Called him a liar and to never call this number again. Dude disconnected.

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 (or with a false indian accent), 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 604-251-1333 or others lines in Montreal, one in Toronto or one in FloridaYou
604-251-1333 THIEF ASS HOLE STOP LOOSING MY TIME OR I WIL COME AND GET YOU

received a call from this number, said they were going to help me lower my credit card interest rates. I asked for which card and he said CIBC. I've never banked there, so I told him that he was a piece of s*** scammer, and he proceeded to spew out filthy language and make comments that were too inappropriate to post here. These people are dirt bags, hang up on them, or better yet block this number completely. The Do Not Call Registry is a joke, and anyone who is in another country doesn't bother to follow the laws anyway.

I don't answer my phone anymore (unless I know the caller)...
Thank god for 'caller I.D'
Always report fraud to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org or by dialing 1-888-495-8501
This is the link:
I just called the CRTC and the Government employee told me that the phone call is made from the Philippines but they are using a Canadian phone number. Typical filipino scam. In the Philippines it`s like any other 3th world countries. There`s no laws so there`s not much we can do about those assholes. Do never share any private informations to those bums or you will get scammed.
Those fucking assholes called me like 20 times with the exact same message. I pressed one to talk with one of their super agent and recognized the filipino accent. Those assholes are calling from the Philipines for credit card scam. I`m calling the CRTC right fucking now to make a complain. I `m too fed up: 1-866-580-3625
Telemarketer warning that this is my second and final chance to lower my credit card rate. It is a scam to get your credit info. Do not press 1 simply hang up.
This is a scam number, used to either get credit card information, or to case houses for robberies.
I called Telus and reported this issue. The guy took a full report, with my name and number. I gave him the information I found here, and he told me that Telus has a department for this. So if this number calls you, REPORT IT. It's obviously some scumbag criminal organisation.
How to beat & stop these telemarketing scams...credit card scammers. The way to stop them is to make it unprofitable for them....talk to them for awhile. ask lots of questions...prolong it then give them a bogus credit card #.... when they say they can't pull that # up (they're testing it) have them repeat it back to you several times like you can't understand them(often quite true!) then say no that's not right give it to them again with one number different....go through the process again..... when that all doesn't work....tell them well...I have another card try it...go through the whole process again and again if you have to ....make it really frustrating for them and waste THEIR time.... if everyone does this they'll stop calling cause it will be unprofitable for them to pay these idiots to call us and spend unprofitable time on the phone with us. When we just hang up...they move on untill they find a "scamable Sucker" that "pays" Lets all waste Their time! it can be fun!!! why let them win! They can't pay these idots wages forever!
Another handy service for getting information on questionable numbers is White Pages. You can at least get a definite area from which they are calling, and information about the phone service carrying them. White Pages is now soliciting comments about numbers, and is posting the results as things like "heavy scam source" or "not a known scam source". Of course, you may have to sign up with White Pages to be able to post; I don't think they charge a fee to post. Isn't it amazing that in the last several months, the number of complaint sites for spam communications has expanded? It seems that way to me. -- We are in a war against these telemarketers for our privacy.

The name that came up on the callscreen was McGee #.....of which neither of this pair were Scottish or Irish!
The two people I spoke with when this number called wanted my VISA number on my card so they could offer a 6% interest on my credit card for the balance of my life. They told me that my credit was good and that the company (?) was prepared to lower my interest currently at 11% to 6%. I inquired why the bank itself was not calling and what country were they calling me from..they told me Vancouver in the state of British Columbia. I knew it was a scam and I played along for a well until they hung on me. The pair could barely speak English and were quite insistant that I get my visa card which I did not and had no intentions of giving them.
bills debt.net wanting all card info ...AS IF
Left dead air on the answering machine. However, a Google search reveals that this number is associated with a credit card debt scam.
