So annoying - literally received a phone call from these Hard Tanks people trying to update information, which I have given out, three times this week!!
unknowen number 2009-1-13
Call came at 5:30PM on a Saturday to my direct line. Called earlier in the day also but hung up when I answered. Vanessa asked about our address, what floor we were on, our suite number. Then she asked if we shared the floor with anyone else and corrected me when I said we didn't. I told her to call the office manager on Monday.

THis is Dell, they get your number when you call them regarding orders or such and then they harrasse you. THey call over and over pretending to be other people, asking for personal information, saying inappropriate stuff on the phone. Don't ever give out your number, this can happen.
Sounds like overseas's call center person calling from Hard Tanks??? Can't really tell from accent. Has called business where I work 4 or 5 times this week. Starts asking to verify things like company name, address, phone, etc, also list of current VP's of Marketing, Operations, HR, etc. This "Hard Tanks" company calls every year at this time to "update records". Finally fed up with them, I came to this website to research what others had to say. Lots of useful info here, including crossreferencing "Lawfirm's" comments below about "Harte-Hanks", which turns out to be a global marketing firm. Called them, spoke with nice person about removing our company from their call list. (Don't know if it works, but takes up to 72 hrs.) Also read "Andy's" comment about company Primus, who sells ID masking phone numbers. Makes sense since the number on our caller ID is same but results in many different stories here.
DELL COMPUTERS - I got a call from this number when i was disconnected from a DELL Computer Sales Specialist. I was just her wanting to follow up and continue designing my system.
Number in Display was 604-550-7000
. Said there were doing a verification survey...
It was a call from the same dude with the thick, thick Indian accent saying he was from Bell Mobility and that I was chosen for a promotion of a new cellphone under a new plan. It really struck me wrong since I just got a new phone through Bell and he didn't know any of my details and was trying to get information from me. Very suspicious and the call cut out before I could even hang up on him.
i just want to know who is the owner for this number
since last week i noticed i got missed call in tha midnight at this number
I simply do not answer when name does not shows. No message left
Now, before the conspiracy theories take overhand:
Calls from 604-550-7000 are from any private/unlisted subscriber at Primus TalkBroadband VoIP in Canada.
More info at: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/12260.
OK, found this site by accident since I've received tons of calls from Hardtanks (or some spelling) claiming they're just verifying info from last year or previously provided. Googled and seems related to what others have gotten here but not sure if the calls came from the number of this thread. Was nice to them when first received these calls 2yrs ago but now I was told to say we're not allowed to provide titles and finally I've had it today. Jack asked if he could put the same info from last year. I said ok but I'm not coroborating anything lol -that nipped it ! I think I may hang up next time.
this number calls daily , when I put them to voicemail (at work) they zero out and ask for another person
I too have had problems with Harte Hanks - but I'm going to do try to do something about it.
If you want to report your problems with this company, please contact us. Future litigation may follow.
called ID says VARIOUS CO. but I tried calling the number back and it says the number is out of service or d/c...British Coumbia..
I live in Canada, and once I received a call from this number :
and it turned to be that it belongs to:
Patrick Inyang Etim
430 Audubon ave.suite2
Manhattan, NY 10033
and this is as i think is not the real name....it's a scam
03/13/2008 This 604-550-7000 number keeps calling my company non stop, so any info leading to the company or person would be GREAT! I would LOVE to start a law suit!!! These bones heads call about 8 times per day/night all hours and I want them, and want them BAD!
any info that can be posted would be great! And if your the person calling and reading this, I hope you have a HUGE BUDGET! Your gonna need it when I'm done SEWING YOUR ASS!

I also live in Belgium and today we had 2 calls from this number - definately sounded international and like a voip connection.
I live Belgium and it is at least the fifth time that this number calls and when I take down, nothing.
There has enough!
I inform my supplier and the police force as of this morning.
this guy call me thinking i would not figure what he is ( nigerian idiots ) concerning a loan on the internet for sure and in all evidence he's a scammer ( loan shark scam) so please if you belong to a phone company report this user a fraud artist well not much of an artist he was not convincing \

BEWARE OF THIS CALLER. I STARTED GETTING CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER AFTER I NEARLY BECAME A FRAUD VICTIM: SELLING A BOOK FOR $50 ON A STUDENT EXCHANGE, WAS SENT $1700 TO PAY OFF A PRIVATE SHIPPER, DIDNT HAVE A CLUE TIL I WAS STOPPED BY POLICE AT A WESTERN UNION. WHEN I TRY CALLING THIS NUMBER BACK, ALONG WITH ANOTHER NUMBER I KEPT GETTING CALLS FROM AFTER THIS INCIDENT: 604-550-7000
IT ALWAYS SAYS IT'S AN "UNASSIGNED NUMBER". LIKELY, IF YOU'VE STARTED GETTING CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER, YOU'VE STARTED GETTING CALLS FROM THE 604 NUMBER. DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION TO THEM, SIMPLY HANG UP OR CHANGE YOUR PHONE NUMBER OR REPORT IT IF THERE'S BEEN A PATTERN.
TORONTOGAL Feb 06th, 2008
EVERYONE SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A SCAMMER. I STARTED RECEIVING THESE CALLS ON MY CELLPHONE AFTER I NEARLY BECAME A FRAUD VICTIM - I WAS SELLING A BOOK ON A STUDENT EXCHANGE AND WAS NEARLY CONNED INTO CASHING IN A CHEQUE FOR $1700 WITH THEIR CLAIM THAT I NEEDED TO FORWARD THE REMAINING BALANCE TO A PRIVATE SHIPPER WHO WOULD LATER PICK UP MY BOOK FROM MY HOME. I BELIEVE IT'S EITHER THE SAME SCAM PPL WHO TRIED TO SCAM ME OR ELSE THEY SOLD MY NUMBER TO A CALL COMPANY. I NEVER PICK UP THO. I BELIEVE THERE'S ANOTHER DUMMY NUMBER THEY'RE USING: 3-317-070-6399
. BEWARE. DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION TO THEM. KEEP HANGING UP.

We have the VOIP and I guess this number is a "router" number. My call was from Premium Recovery. The person's name is Daniel Edwards. This call was coming from Switzerland. They work and try to collect on behalf of a fraudulent company called Construct Data aka "Fair Guide" from Austria. Daniel Edward's phoned me back after I hung up on him and proceeded to leave me a message (directed at myself but trying to collect from the company I work for) that was quote "this is for the rude Bi*%ch who just hung up on me - go F*%k yourself!" and hung up.
I had a call too came in as brit. columbia who is this? I called the number but it cannot be connected
un known name Jan 12th, 2008
Computer message saying I won a price. To press 1 to reclaimed. In Spanish I'm from Costa Rica. Just hang up the phone. Its a scam.
Happy new year to all.
I received a call from them this afternoon 2:00 PM GMT
I live in Belgium so.... what the hell is it?
Called me on NEW YEARS DAY! HELL NO! They sounded like a rep for TELUS Mobility. Tried to sell me a phone package, they hung up when I said I was currently under contract with another provider and before I could be asked to be removed from their list. ARGH!

At 6:25 A.M., a phone call came from 604 550 7000. How uncivilized !
GOT A CALL FROM THEM TODAY. I ASKED WHO THEY WERE AND WHAT COMPANY THEY WERE CALLING FROM. WOMAN STATED KATIE GARCIA FROM HARTE HANKS. THEY CALL AT LEAST TWICE A DAY.
I am living in tokyo and this number just popped up on my phone this morning, tried to call back but no dice.
just recieved call from +6045507000 - didnt answer. guy left message - Thomas from Avance on behalf of FedEx calling for unpaid toll bill..
Received 2 calls from this number, when I tried to call it back it was unable to go threw, It woke us at very early in the am and now 2 hours later call again. No one leaves a messange, Just lets answering machine pick and then they hang up, WHAT asses
I received a call for few seconds and hang up, who is this idiot
I DON'T KNOW WHOS NO IS THIS HOW CAN I KNOW
they called 5 times in a row and guess what? no message, they hung up on me and one of those times they played music in the back ground.
Went to voicemail, but didn't leave message. Wasn't a call directly to my extension, but transferred from main switchboard
Won't answer if pick up, and no voicemail if I don't.
This is a VOIP exchange number used by a variety of services.
i got called from this number in toronto land phone.... when my husband pick up the phone no 1 answered and hung up
This idiot called me twice after hours 22:27 & 22:28 p.m. When I find out who this company or person is I'll see the m in court.
This person has called me in Denmark Nov.7th 2007 but I did not answer the phone.
Someone claiming to be from Dell told me that because I bought a computer 6 months ago (I didn't) that I was eligible for a free trial of Rogers DSL service (not available in my area). I think he wanted some info but I hung up on him. I started getting repeat calls from the same number. Telus call block has filtered it out.
Received a call from a woman who spoke with an Indian accent, asking for all these details about our office (address, what floor we're on, how many suites, etc.). I hung up on her. Caller ID said British Columbia.
This number is sometimes displayed when relatives from overseas call through a long-distance plan.
this number belongs to Dell Customer service
This person keeps calling, interferring our work, called 3 times in 10 mins. Asking for another company who's in our complex. Made sexual advances towards us. If don't stop calling, we'll be pressing charges.
Called and left no message... Could this # be affiliated with Dell?
These people keep calling saying they are from Harte Hanks, I have asked NUMEROUS times to be removed from their calling list. They keep calling I finally asked for a phone number I could call back and speak to someone, he gave me a bogus phone number 1-800-854-8049
. I am sick of speaking to these people and I want to report them. I have put the number on the do not call list and reported them that way. Now they are not UNKNOWN, take action somebody, I cant understand them and both numbers were crap. I tried the 604 number and the 1800 number saying that it was not working. I think it is BS!
Heather J. Nov 02nd, 2007

First I got 3 calls from 832-726-4814
on my fax line all 2 minutes apart, then the 4th call from 604-550-7000 2 minutes after that.
Saw this incoming number when I was calling using TruPhone to my own number.
Toronto Guy Oct 22nd, 2007
My boyfriend calls me from the states and instead of his number displaying, for the past 2 days it's been 604-550-7000. Totally baffeled.

This number is simply a number from British Columbia through which some international numbers are rerouted to Canadian numbers and elsewhere.. it is not necessarily a telemarketer, as my friend from egypt just called and that was the number it showed on caller ID, though it could very well be a telemarketer from another country.
These people royally suck. No matter how many times we screw with them (using soundboards and such) they continue to call. Oh well, at least we get a joke out of it when we use the soundboards.
Called ask to verify information on company. Caller speaks in India voice! Will not stop calling!!!
They've called me twice so far, and all we've gotten is static, even in the message they left on our answering machine.
Call came at 12:45 am ... no message left
Toronto guy Oct 09th, 2007
no message left....
Could that coming out of a bipolar crazy person, who has nothing better to do?
They phoned my at 6:30 in the morning and when I answered they were speaking french so I hung up.
Got a call from this number, he is mumbling, i cant hear his voice properly, he ask me to call back, I treid but message come that this phone is out of order !!
I got a call from this number on my cell phone. After 9:00 pm. Rang once and hung up.
2 voicemails left:
dell incorporated. return department.
This number is just a routing number when someone makes a VoIP call with certain providers. The caller can be anyone using this service. It can also be your friend in a foreign country who has purchased an IP card to make cheaper calls.
This is a Telus sales person trying to sell their new high speed internet service.
Dell calling to confirm a refund
This number called and i didn't even get a chance to pick up the phone before they hung up.
I have tried for five years to stop Hart Hanks from calling me. I get an average of two calls per week.
a friend of mine from belgium phoned me last night and this is the number that showed up
This is a gateway which lands IP phones to local switch phones.
I had got many calls from telemarketing out side BC, however yesterday I got a long distant call thru this number from my friend who uses indirect dial long distant service, or long distance calling card.
This is a SCAM number...they end up charging high fees when you return the call. Once they confirm it is a working number they then pass your cell phone number to other scammers!
DO NOT ANSWER IT OR CALL THEM BACK!!
I got a call from them today, it was some guy with a high voice claiming to be from my bank. He just started asking for my credit information, needless to say I hung up on him and dont plan to answer that call again.
If it's Hart Hankes you can call and ask to be on their do not call list: 1-800-456-9748
. That's what I did. We'll see if it works.
How did they get my number? I didn't get to my phone in time and they didn't leave a message. I have tried to call back and the number is apparently invalid, then told that "all lines are busy, try again later" . . . oh yeah I'll be sure to do that!
He wanted to know information about our computers. I told him to call back later.
Don't worry people!!! This number comes from anyone who calls internationally with a prepaid calling card! My friend from France calls me a few times a week and that's the number I get.
I have received 5 calls a day for the last 5 days - usually at 3am. Only happened when I was visiting Canada and got on the Rogers network.
If this person calls again. I'll call the police.
This person kepts calling me. What the hell does he want?!
I live in Denmark and get several calls from 001-604-550-7000. Often 5 am in the morning. Usually noone at the other end. Very annoying.
Asshole keeps calling my phone and hanging up, 6 times in a row @ 2:49pm

I had won a travel from Astar Holidays. A "manager" from Astar wanted information about my credit card for reservation what I wouldn't give him.

Call came on my private office line and then a minute later on my cell phone they asked for me by name. Said his name was Eric and he was doing "research on other people in the building" Said he worked for "Amercrombie" (sp) Eric had a heavy accent maybe East Indian. Who are these folks and why do they have personal information about me?
Nikki Parker Jul 18th, 2007
They keep calling and claiming they are verifying information and do that yearly. I asked why do you call daily then and requested to be scrubbed off their list and they hung up.
This seems to be a faxnumber. All I heard were bleeps.
I frequently recieved a call from this number; however I've never answered it, and they never leave a msg.
These dudes fucking suck. After repeat calls and me telling them to go away, they continue to call back. Luckily this time I had my Family Guy soundboard ready... they hung up on me this time! hahaha
I didnt answer, no message left...
