Got a call from this number several minites ago - I never answer calls from numbers I don't recognize, but I suspect it's the same scammers as mentioned above. How many times will they call your number before the give up?
It starts with a recording, telling you that you just won a vacation. Then in prompts you yo press nine. Then a man with a strong East Indian Accent asks how you are feelking today.
I very politely asked him to me to please remove our number from their call list. No less than twelve times the he shouted at me to "F*** YOU" and when I would not hang up, he told me to hang up and then go f*** myself. Thank you Bell Canada for protecting our privacy.
I offer anyone $1,000 cash who can give me the physical location of these animals!!!
This 'Vancouver" (yeah, right) number called me in Toronto a few minutes ago. Did not answer and no msg left. Another crap call.
Apparently Bell has received so many complaints about this number both their fraud department is working on it.
Was just called from this number claiming they were from VISA and I had won a trip, when I said I wasn't interested the guy told me suck his c*ck and called me a stupid bi***.
Just got the call. When I answered I heard the beginning of a recorded message congratulating me for....I don't know what because I hanged up right away. Why is it that phone companies and our governments can't do anything about those scammers?
Got the call today, asking to press 9 for my all expense caribbean vacation.. I pressed 9, took me to some South Asian sounding woman giving me congratuations and asked who she was speaking to. I told her I wanted to be taken off the calling list, she said i have to be put on hold to be deleted.. She hung up. What a bi*tch.
me myself and I
I dont the fool to remove my #, he said only way i would is if i would like HIS p**sy
Folks, you have to go to https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/index-eng and file a complaint against these idiots (I just did). Maybe if enough people complain someone will do something about it.
This is the most amusing to me - I never bother with these sites, but when the person said "F*ck you! F*ck you! after I asked to be removed, I thought I'd do some googlin'
Now I'm kinda wondering who the hell these c*nts are... :)

these guys just called me...took the call...listened to the pitch...hung up
trying to understand what's in it for the company making the calls if their "agents" keep swearing at "potential" clients...doesn't make any sense to me
No need to beg for mercy form these people.
If you want to block unwanted calls, buy a Uniden/Panasonic DECT 6.0 cordless phone.
Both have a "Call Blocking" feature build-in. Very useful and can get your dignity back.
Why don't you try calling it, Josh? It rings and rings and rings and nothing happens. I would LOVE to find a solution to this, hence I googled it to see what other people have done. It's unfortunate that there is no solution.
Damn so many people complaining about getting calls from this number. Getting annoyed and all but does anyone ever try to spend a dollar to find out who actually owns this number. If you are really annoyed I would imagine you would not mind to spend the money and find out who it is that wants to suck your d**k.
Or are we just being Canadians again....
Just had the same experience. Pressed 9. Rang for a solid 3 minutes, finally a guy answered the phone, said his name was Josh. When I asked him what company he worked for he said, "What did you say?" I said, "I would like to know what company you work for" and he said, "I work for 'Suck My d**k and I'm going to squeeze your t*ts' that's the name of my company" I told him I would be reporting the number and hung up on him.
I feel like I'm being assaulted in my own home with these calls.
To clarify, Canadian companies also aren't allowed to use American call centres to call back to Canada. So just because they're calling from the US doesn't mean they are automatically exempt from the law. Not sure if this applies in this case, but an important distinction in general.
This person called my house Indian man offering a vacation to all kinds of places i asked to be taken off the list and he told me to s*** his***** i said what? and he said s*** my **** you f****ng bi***!
We called the police but they say there is nothing they can do to find the number.
Same as the above got call decide to press 9 just to play the game. They wanted my credit card number. I told her i wouldn't be providing a number and she directed me to a site where i could check out what i won. I said but that still doesn't prove to me that this is real. And that i still would not provide a credit card number and didn't need to if it was for something I won. She told me to f*** off. When i said pardon me she said it again and hung up. I can't believe these people can do this kind of stuff and continue to do it over and over again!!!!
Just go to your telephone company web site and BLOCK the offending number, so it will not be able to come thru.
But that's nothing permanent, because those Caller ID spoofers use a number for one day or so, then start to use some other number. The numbers they use are abandoned numbers, not yet reassigned by the telephone companies.
Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to display a number on the recipient's Caller ID display which is not that of the actual originating station. The term is commonly used to describe situations in which the motivation is considered malicious by the speaker or writer. Just as e-mail spoofing can make it appear that a message came from any e-mail address the sender chooses, Caller ID spoofing can make a call appear to have come from any phone number the caller wishes. Because of the high trust people tend to have in the Caller ID system, spoofing can call the system's value into question.
It is amazing that such a crooked practice is allowed to go on!
Where are the feds when I need them????? I wrote to my US Rep...no response!
Bottom line: IGNORE IT and never give the other side ANY information. PERIOD!
sick of it in Bolton
Just got a call from this number answered it nobody on line & no reply then the line went dead. I called back and it won't disconnect, so now I'm paying long distance charges. Not happy. I had to disconnect my phone to cut the line . SCAM SCAM SCAM. Crazy.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!sick of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
here's the scam, they are driving people to this site or other sites that have this number, two scams in one.
I got the same message, the guy on the phone was calling me a c%^k sucker, and and said he was in India call centre.
It was a trip or cruise they said I won the when this guy got on the phone, he said I qualify for holiday.
Crazy to think some people are still not aware of scams.
Called tonight saying I had won a cruise, press 9, asked him to put me on do not call list, then the sexually explicit comments started, said his name was Brad?? My husband was listening on the other phone, didn't phase this guy. Thank god my kids didnt answer the phone. Something has to be done about these idiots!!! Obviously calling from a call centre you can hear all the phones ringing, nice employee to have, good luck to this losers wife!!!!
Recording saying I've won a cruise.
I hung up before it went too far.
Thanks for the info, just got the call and thought it was a local call from B.C. answered it and realized it was cruise offer (also realized it was advertising hype). Select 9 as instructed to get a live person so that I could asked to be removed from the dialer (I am on the DNCL). The person that answered said "what the F**K did you say" when I asked politely to be removed from the company's dialer. He then suggested a few obscenities that I could perform and he would removed me from the dialer...I hung up. I did call to make a complaint with the DNCL registry BUT I am pretty sure that the guy was calling from abroad - these calls drive me crazy!
I just saw this on my call display, never seen it before, didn't pick up and I pay for an unlisted number. Then I did a search. I hate scumbag companies, this is obviously one.
Thanks to everyone who posted the information here, to help others keep informed. Thanks!
