I keep getting calls from this number, 2 or 3 times a day, on my cell phone. I would like them to stop.
I have received 8 calls from this number in the last 3 days. The display show they are from ScotiaBank, "Long Distance", "unknown caller" and "blank".
So if it is Scotia BAnk, they are trying different displays to try and get you to answer.
Got a call from this #, called it back and spoke with a Scotiabank Rep and he looked up what the call was, it was from their marketing dept wanting to see if i'd be interested in applying for a credit card.
+1 (888) 882-3811call my phone today June 17, 2014 at 8:24pm I was told that they where calling from Scotia Bank when I asked hiw you get my number the man said from my Scotia Bank scenic card (movie card).
I was told I was preapproved for $7500 credit card, he confirmed some information I lision to a 2 min voice recording about this credit card. Then he took the time to answer questions.
I was told I would see a credit card in the nail or get a phone call from the back to pick
It up in 7/10 days...
This is no way collection company I was I called this one 800-number back and got Scotia Bank's credit card department Directly..
NOW I WAIT AND SEE IF THIS CARD ARRIVES.
I don't want anymore calls from this caller.
who is this?
calls quite regularly no response and no message so why would I answer it!
I have been gettting called EVERY night!!! I am on a do not call list so this is very aNNOYING
i get calls from this number frequently
please stop spam calls!!!
Was getting a call from this number 2-4 times a day. When I would answer, it would be nothing but silence. I even let my phone run for 12 minutes one time to see if someone would eventually come on the line. Nothing.
I called this number this evening and it was for Scotiabank. Makes sense, I finance my car through them.
Waited on hold and spoke to Nicolas who then transferred me to their "Service Department" when I asked to be taken off of their do not call list. Alif then took my name and address to try and find my account but had troubles because I don't have a debit card with them to pull my account up with. He then took my number and said this should stop any solititation calls from their sales department. Both agents were very nice and professional. I work in a call centre, so please remember to not be rude to these individuals. They are simply relaying information for you. It is NOT THEIR FAULT that you are getting spam calls.
TL;DR Number is legit. It's from Scotiabank. Easy fix, call and ask to be taken off of their calling list.
Just so happened to be watching the fifth estate on CBC about a fraud/murder and money laundering in Mexico dealing with of all companies, Scotiabank. I'm guessing they got my number from the Cineplex Scene Card I have, as they are marketing partners. I have a "Reject caller" option on my phone, so within seconds they are out of my life, the only way I know if they call is checking the call logs.
I just googled the same damn number, and was brought to you. I have been getting these calls as well, but you should know that I do not believe it is Scotia Bank, as I asked some of my family members who work for Scotia, they told me that Scotia does not call regarding such matters. Most importantly, I do not even use Scotia Bank. I'm terribly sorry that you had to go through this headache, and that it even affected who you banked with.
Call the number back. It is Scotiabank. Talk nicely to a service representative and tell them to stop calling. They MUST comply. A note will be added to their database to tell them not to call you.
Everyone else should complain in that same way, nicely, but firmly. Make your views on telemarketing calls known. Maybe, given enough complaints, they will finally STOP using phone calls to push crap we do not want or need, especially at times when we are sitting down to dinner.
The service rep may be able to tell you why they were calling. I was told it was to offer me another credit card. Dammit, I have been with Scotiabank over three decades, and I do NOT need another credit card! I ALREADY HAVE A CREDIT CARD WITH SCOTIA. I would know enough to go into a branch somewhere and get one, without being constantly harassed with useless phone calls, if I thought for some unknown reason I would need ANOTHER card. It seems that their marketing is being misdirected, to people that will not take the bait, and instead will be repelled. Great job you're doing, Mr. Marketing VP!
All these calls are forcing me to divert from whatever else I am doing, and that is irritating and totally unnecessary. Why the execs at any bank, or business owners in general that seem to employ telemarketing, CAN'T UNDERSTAND THAT SIMPLE FACT, is beyond me. Is there not enough anger out there already, as expressed on this website and others like it?? Does SCOTIABANK really care? Or should I take my chances and move my considerable assets and accounts out to some other bank, ending an otherwise good service I have used for over three decades. HELLOOOOOOO SCOTIA...ARE YOU LISTENING????
Scotia bank stop! When I needed you you weren't interested. Now I am not interested.
Pissed off part 2
Scotia bank on my Facebook because I tweeted them: We appreciate you getting back to us and we're sorry for your frustration. We'd like to ensure that this has been done for you. Please provide us with your full name, the first three characters of your postal code and the phone number being called. Please note that if you request to be placed on our Do Not Call list, you may still receive some calls for up to 60 days from your request. This is because your number may already be included in a current campaign. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and assure you that we will make sure that this has been applied correctly for you. You mentioned that you've completed this process with Scene as well. Please note that they have an option to change marketing preferences using their website. We suggest that you ensure that has been done as well.
I have already opt out for any correspondence by going on scene and changing the options. (Provided my info) Wow 60 days that is a long time for a number to be deleted. No offense but how would you feel if you were in my shoes had no dealing with Scotiabank and someone was to tell you it would take 2 months for your number to be deleted. When my number is already on the National Do Not Call Registry
Scotiabank response: We understand your frustration and we truly do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We'll ensure that it's been correctly applied for you right away. Please let us know if we can help with anything else.
My response Thank you, I will message you back if I should get any other phone calls after today.
We appreciate your understanding. As we mentioned before, you may still receive some calls over the next little while. We can guarantee that you will not receive calls 30 days from today at the phone number you provided to us.
Funny how it went from 60 days to 30 days
get a real job. have some pride and quit. go earn real money. if you dont have the job then at least we can blame the voice recording. go work at timmy's...sell mcdonalds...at least your working.
stop calling me
It is from a third party company that Scotiabank HIRES to telemarket for them. Very annoying. They Lie and claim not to be a telemarketing company when asked, but claim to actually be Scotiabank employees.
Scotiabank doesn't give a crap because they still get thousands of gullible people willing to give personal information, apply for credit cards, buy unneeded insurance, etc from an incoming blocked caller ID name.
Complain to Scotiabank. 1800-4SCOTIA Tell them to get a legitimate company to market their products. One that will honor the do not call requests and not LIE to people in an attempt to make a phone sale.
At least ATB takes these liers seriously, after all they are hired to represent the company's products and services.
Attention all smartphone users, your device has a reject call list. Add this number to your list and even if they attempt to call it will be rejected therefor not interrupting your day.
Actually, if you have an account with a financial institution, you can still ask them to remove your phone number so you don't receive marketing calls. Otherwise, buy a call blocker and block them. :)
They are calling me EVERY DAY. I haven't received a call when I've actually been able to answer, so can't say if there's even anyone on the other end of the line. I have registered on the National Do Not Call List, but please note the disclaimer they give you before you confirm. Apparently if you have an account with ScotiaBank, then it is NOT illegal for them to continue to call you. However, it is stupid. Oh, and I don't have an account with them, or have ever had any dealings with them. Not sure how they got my number.
From the National Do Not Call List:
"Registering on the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) will not eliminate all telemarketing calls. There are exemptions within the Rules that may allow calls from organizations such as charities, those with whom you have existing business relationships, political parties and newspapers."
I kept getting a call from Scotiabank telemarkters a couple times a day on my cell phone. Finally fed up, I sent a tweet to @scotiabankhelps and was able to put myself on their DNC list. I hope this fixes the issue.
this phone number call me everyday sometime I answer but nobody answer or say anything how can I get it to stop calling me
I have asked them not to call me and they still do. They call on Saturdays and when you call them back its closed?. I have already complained to the DNC. My next step of action is to call them on Monday and speak to a Manager and tell them to stop all calls or formal action will be taken place for harassment. They have no nature to be calling me. I have no business with them.
Scotiabank is not even my bank! I have never used them! I too would appreciate the Do Not Call lists to work. :/
I disagree that ScotiaBank doesn't have control. If they have hired these third-party marketers, they are allowed to tell them to not call back people who say they don't want to be called. It would be in their standard privacy policies for customers and in their agreements with third-party vendors. And if the vendors keep calling people back when they're not supposed to, then ScotiaBank can fire them and even sue them. These guys have called me for weeks and it's really annoying, never leaving a message.
Even though the caller says their Scotia Bank when you call back, it isn't really Scotia Bank. If you ask the bank to never call you, you will still get the calls.
The marketers are a third party and Scotia Bank can't do anything about it. There is more than one company that makes these calls. I've asked the bank and these people to never call again, but I still get the calls.
I've gotten calls on my cell for people that I've never heard of and when I say they got the wrong number and never call again, they still do.
I get calls from people saying they are Scotia Bank offering me insurance (different type for each call) on my credit card - I already have insurance on my card that I got through the bank directly when I signed up for the card.
Before getting mad and angry at Scotia Bank for something that is out of their control, put the number on your phones reject list if it has one or download an app that puts the number on a blacklist so you don't have to deal with the phone calls.
For those who say they don't have an account with Scotia Bank, I say to you, random number generator.
And don't forget the chances of them guess you have a credit card are high - the only people I know who don't have a credit card aren't old enough to get one.
Dont want call from this number 8888823811
Thanks for this great tip. I have a Scene card & it turns out I was subscribed to the telemarketing option. I've unsubscribed, & here's hoping those annoying calls will end.
