Got this number calling on my cel with Virgin. Hung up when it took 3 seconds to connect.
You're paying too much per call!
now they are using a "you won a free vacation with Expedia"
I received this call on my cell phone, Feb. 11 at 8:59 am, BC time. I was away from my phone so I didn't hear it ring when the call first came in, they left no message. I called back and recording said number not in service. I checked online, the listing for it is a land line through Shaw Cable in Fulford Harbour, BC. I have no idea who these folks are or how they got my number. Judging from the other people's comments, I guess it's a telemarketer, or some other type of scam. I would recommend not answering it if you can help it.
recieved unwated call from this number, just a hang up on voice mail 2 days after activating a new phone on the telus network
I just got a call from that number & had the good sense not to answer. It is from a BC area code (250) but I don't recognize the originating exchange. I let it go to see if a message would be left. No message. Looking it up online it comes up associated with a scam. They're now running through the Shaw Cable phone numbers from the looks of it. Thank everyone for the heads up.
Was expecting a call from a new client. Knew if wasn't them when I head the familiar pause...then a computer voice stating that"
blah blah Expedia. blah blah chosen to win over 2000 Expedia points.
press 0 to blah blah blah.
Love this site - should have checked before answering. Wonder how many new calls I will earn because I answered instead of letting it go to voicemail...
Called at 3:31 pm, didn't answer. Thanks for info.
Just got a call a couple days ago from this numbe.. however im orignally from Nova Scotia and am home visiting so to save myself from a long distance charge i never answered.. but being curious, i looked into it thinking i had possibly missed a job interview or something. Glad i never answered afterall! :)
Just had 3 separate calls on my house phone. The middle call was one continuous ring so of course I didn't answer.
But, I'm curious because I just bought a new cell phone and haven't decided on a provider yet.
Telus, Shaw or someone has sold my number, prob Telus cause they're on my case about not having to stick to my original contract.
I mean, my bill this month was over $500, and when I signed the contract the total amount (I was told)
would not exceed $104 with tax monthly.
So, I'm telling them if they want to up my bill, they've broken the contract and so there's no more 3 yr deal.
Did not answer as I did not recognize number.
They just called me. Right as I hit my talk button, they hung up. Weird. Tried to call back, says number is out of service.

Was just reading over the comments as myself as well as a lot of my friends have been receiving this # calling us lately. I wanted you to know that there is a way as I know my daughter and her friends do this sometimes (only to me and my family) but you can actually a way that people can go on the computer (some program) and dial anyone and make it look like it is coming from any # they choose, Example: My daughter sitting right next to me, she was on the computer as my phone rang and I assumed it was my dad because that is the # that showed up on my call display and when I answered "Hey Dad" it was my daughter giggling on the other end sitting at the computer. Really beware...Take care.
Got a call from them this morning.
Was strange because it was listed as 011-250-etc. instead of just 1-250 like a normal person.
Makes me think it's an international calling scam run by some machine.
All i heard was "Attention"... and I hung up.
Only googled it in case it was some government thing I should actually care about - obviously... irrelevant.
Glad this site is here - scammers be gone!
When dialed 250-930-4268 it says "number you have dialed is not in service".
I got a call from 2509304268 its like this phone number doesnt exist??

Got a call from this number and they said something about 2000 airmiles points on the message it left, and we don't even have airmiles card
I'm on the DO NOT CALL registry and this number is showing up on my phone almost daily!
I received a call from this number (250)930-4268 on my other line. i didnt answer it because i was in a very important call. I dialed this number immediately after the call i was on and recieved the message "This number is not in service. Check the number and try again". Must be a scam, but i have a question. How can one call from a phone number NOT in service???? O.O

Called my Telus cell, did not pick up, no message left.

This was a robocall offering me $2000 for Aeroplan. I recorded the number and hung up without responding
A prerecorded message in Spanish. Don't know what it was. I don't speak the language.
Usually have cell phone OFF, turned it on to call someone, got 3 beeps as soon as I dialed his number. Hung up, tried again, 3 beeps again, and then immediately got incoming call from this 250 area code number, which I answered. No voice response, but I saw something about 3 cents/minute on my screen and immediately hung up. If the scammer is just dialing numbers in sequence, how did they happen to dial my number in the 2 minutes out of a week that my phone was turned on?
Got similar message concerning air miles. I pressed 1 and some fake voice answer saying "who do I have the pleasure to talk to?". I told them I need my phone # removed from their calling list. He said "Disconnect your phone line if you don't want any phone calls from us" and he hung up.
Just called my phone. I didn't pick up. Caller did not leave a voicemail.
Just got a call from this number and it was entirely in Spanish. It's apparently from Victoria, BC.
do not want these calls no
You have been selected by Air Miles Canada to receive 2000 free air miles press 1 to accept this offer.
I also received this call today at 2:03 pm but didn't answer and called back but
A recording said the # is out of service an hr later when I called back, figd I'd google the number
Thanks for the info to u all
Just got a call from 250-930-4268. You will receive 2600 Air Miles - press 1. I did. Seems to be a telemarketer trying to promote Azul Five resort. Tried to get me to purchase a discounted 6 day vacation in the Maya Riviera for 999.99 total for up to 4 people. That was his pitch. I was patient listened for a while he passed me onto a "supervisor". I said I wasn't comfortable being phoned out of the blue and being offered this "great deal". Supervisor then offered me a student price for 799.99 for the same deal. He was persistent but there was no way I was going to give any credit card information. He tried to assure me by saying he would pass me onto a security representative and everything would be recorded for my safety and protection (I'm not sure how that works - haha). After about 15 minutes I think he finally gave up.
