Appears to be iQOR, a fly-by-night collection agency. Many, many complaints about these turkeys all over the Internet. I owe them nothing. I just picked up a "new" +1-416-548-XXXX number a couple of days ago (which I've given out to nobody) and it's suddenly receiving multiple unsolicited calls daily. I'd return the number to my provider for another, but all the numbers they have left are +1-647.
This is a collections company. Just ask them to remove your number. They called me looking for the woman who had my number last year, and they had her name correct. They did not ask me for my name at all, only asked if I was this other woman. I know they're legit, as I get loads of calls from several different places looking for this woman, apparently she owes a lot of money and is not repaying her debts. I was pleasant and cordial to the lady who answered at Icor, and she reciprocated. I know I can get hissy with telemarketers calling me, but these folks are not and I'm sure if you 'kill them with kindness' it will go a little further.
I called the number back, and they asked if I was a specific person. I said no, I just moved into this house and they removed me from their calling list. I was friendly towards them, which may have helped, not sure. I do know that even though they're irritating as hell, they're still real people getting paid crap wages, so if you're decent to them, they're much more likely to want to help.
in the same boat
Thanks ..... now I have all there numbers
I have been getting up to 8 calls a day from 1-866-294-1752 every day. they never leave a message or does anyone reply when i answer. I have even paid 3 times to have my phone number changed this has gone on for 2 years. How do I stop them from calling?

.....um, has any of you considered simply not answering your phone???
This caller has been calling for months and not once a day -- up to 6times a day. Now, this number has found out my land line and my partner receives the calls but we do not answer and we have never answered. I do not answer 800 line numbers. When is it going to stop? How do I get them taken off my phone, blocked? I do not know.

whats His Number Lets call HIM all Hours The president of shi* house.
the so-called president of this company name is Rod Hodinot from Newfoundland and now this in Pickering.
keep calling - up to 10x in one day!!
Ok this number keeps calling my phone like ten times a day abd they don't leave messages, I tried calling them back and the girl who answered the phone wasn't helpful at all. Who are these people? I have no debt and even if they were collectors they would probably leave a message. How do I get them to leave me alone?
18662941752. This number calls me EVERYDAY atleast 4 or 5 times starting around 8AM until about 6PM. What do they want? I never answer I just reject/ignore the call as I never answer 1800 numbers.
I've been getting calls from this number for over three months constantly in the morning when I'm at school all the time and today I answered to tell the buggers off and before I could say anything a young man with a strong accent demanded to talk to Matthew. when he confirmed the name it was that of my boyfriend! I'm extremely creeped out and if I get one more call I will not be happy.
I continue to get the calls from this same number as well...
Hello I get phone number that I do not know can I get that number off please
It is getting tiring...they call and nobody is there to talk to.
I just got a new phone number and have not given it out yet. They have no business calling me
Directed towards those fine sphincters at IQOR currently hiding behind 1-866-294-1752 or whatever other dead corporate name they call themselves and changed phone numbers.

Someone stop these criminals!
I am getting 3 calls a day on average from this illegitimate organization. The best advise I can give to everyone is to block this number if you have a phone that supports this feature. When everyone ignores their calls, this might hopefully give them less means of further pursuing their criminal deeds.
There is a book called "The Wolf at the Door" by Mark Siverthorn, who was a lawyer for collection agencies. In his book, he says that you don't have to give them any information, or answer the call. These people are paid on commission for how many accounts they can collect on. That is why they try to intimidate you.
If you do have accounts in collections, ask them for WRITTEN proof that you owe the money and that they have the right to collect it. If you do owe money, it is in your best interest to contact the company you owe the money to and try to make some sort of deal or payment arrangement with them instead. Each province has a different time period where the debt is no longer collectible. This book costs $22 at Chapters, but it is worth it for the peace of mind it gives you and the information it contains.
mee too it wont let me
Tell them to stop it if they dont ask provider to change for free due to herassing calls I did before
they keep damb calling me every day more then once I am fed up with it also BBB has been given letter they refused to reply to BBB anyhow I hang up on them when I am home
These people are calling every morning. It is pretty annoying and I wish I could block them...
This pnone number is calling on my Cell phone a several times a day
We have receiving calls for about a year. We let any 800 or similar call numbers ring through to our answering machine. This number never leaves a message. I've re4ad that it a credit company calling from the U.S.A.. We do not owe anyone any money but our paperboy. Lately, because we are on the"do not call list" we have reporting every call to the C.R.T.C.. We tried to get our local M.P. involved, but he just ignored us. How do these people get our number in the first place?
