I just got a call from this number and they did not leave a message. I also live in Edmonton. Judging by the previous posts, looks like they are working their way through Alberta this month.

This is a scam call. If you go along with it you will find they will ask for credit card info. Best to hang up.

These type of calls is "Voice Broadcasting", you can google it....cost as low as 1¢ per call.
Different company use different name, like "Heather" is from company A, and "Rachel" is from company B.
First, I think the solution is to have a phone with "Call Blocking" feature build-in. So you don't have to pay montly fees for blocking individual numbers. Second, they want to get their message across to you by a breif message left on your answering machine. So, I think turn the AM off, they can only call you once but not twice because you use your phone to block that number. Third, If both option is not available to you, then check with your phone provider, add CALL FORWARDING into your current package. Forward it to a "not in service" number.
Also you must file complaints to Do-Not-Call.....
Someone from another thread had discover the person who run these type of calls...worth to take a look....or call him and ask, see what he know....may be this number is run by his associate, friends or family member.

This number has called my office TWICE. Both times I was not around. It leaves a message that gets cut off at the beginning and results in the brief message 'o accept press one'. It picks up in the middle of a word. It's a SCAM. I have never given my office number to WestJet, Airmiles, or anything like that. Sometimes I don't mind picking up calls from these places so I can tear a strip into them and give a good verbal berating.

I got some random call on my cell which not many people know saying I have won 100,000 points [for nothing] so I hung up. I thought it was scam. I don't need any points and I was under 18.

Got a call on my cell from 780 947-8989. I'm in Thunder Bay. I didn't recognize the number, so ignored it. From what I read here, it's a good thing I refused to answer it. Can't imagine what they win by making these calls.

Got called from this number on July 30, 2011 at 10:42 am. Did'nt pick it up - no message left either. My policy - unless I know the number, or else I don't pick it up - if it's impt enough, the caller will leave a message. No message=not so impt! Thanks for this site :)

Received a call from this number earlier today.  Yesterday received one from Trinidad and tobago.  Will report both to the phone company. I have to wonder how serious the phone companies take this since this blog along is over a year old.
