This is a fraud campaign currently active in Canada using a series of VOIP numbers. The objective is to obtain your credit card number and drain your account.
If you attempt to "opt out" your number will be confirmed as live and added to a suckers list for repeated future calls.
"Hello, you have been selected by Westjet to receive 2000 travel points"
I'd like to knock out whoever is in charge of these things.
Just got a call from this #.. did NOT answer, no message
Called my cell but left no message.
got one to didnt pik up as I dont know anyone from 604 758 8000
I got the same call from 780 859-2323 to my BC cell phone. Recording said to hit 1 if I wanted $2000 towards Expedia travel.... I didn't hit the #1 but from experience what they will do is attempt to extract your credit card information from you. Out of curiosity I phoned the number back from my landline and it is of course, "out of service". They are out of country routing the number to be untraceable.
funny cause I called the number back and got that it wasn't in service
Got these consecutive calls on my cell last night at 5. They just kept hanging up and redialing. And coincidentally on the same day, I also got a expedia scam call on my cell too stating I won $2000.00. This one was from a Malaysia phone #? Don't know how they get my cell # ?

got a call from this number. If I don't recognize the number, I don't answer. Who keeps giving these people my number?
How do you type te number into Googl, I would love to know, thanks thanks thanks
Got three consecutive phone calls from this number. The last one they tried to mask their number. I answered a grand total of none of them, but I imagine they were promising me unimaginable wealth. Too bad I missed out.
got a call didnt answer because i didnt know the #
This number has called on my work phone line 20+ times in the next 2 weeks. It is always the same man with a slight Asian accent. They say they are Expedia and when I ask to speak to a manager, they immediately hung up. No goodbye, just a hang up.
I called Expedia and they confirmed that this is not Expedia. It is someone using their name to scam people. I got a call on my personal phone today too: same number.
I too got a call from this # and I jointed that curling.ca contest during the scotties
not interested in call
This number showed up on my phone. I have no idea who the person is, only that it's coming from Burnaby BC
I have been called almost daily from this number. Any chance they got my number from a curling contest I entered online during the Scotties?
Received a call on my Cell from this number 604-758-8000. Did not answer knowing it is telemarketer.
I have a number of these missed calls on my phone. I do not answer numbers that I do not recognize and they do not leave a number. Upon further investigation I found that many people are having this same issue in Edmonton, Alberta.
person who does not want calls like this
Got a call from this number and when I tried to call back, the operator came on and said that it was not in service. What kind of a joke is this. Do not answer or try to call back as this is a fraud call.
12:14PM, Mountain Time, received a called, did not pick up.
I got two consecutive calls @ 530pm from this number. But lucky that I never answer anyway. Thank you all for documenting this.
