IF THEY ARE SO INNOCENT, WHY ARE THEY CALLING A NOBODY IN AUSTRALIA. THAT WOULD BE ME & I DISTRUST PEOPLE SO MUCH I BARELY HAVE ANY BUSINESS WITH ANYONE IN THIS COUNTRY - BUT CANADA? I DONT THINK SO
but i live in Brisbane QLD Australia and im getting these calls
My phone picked up the register as Cogeco yet 'WhoCalled' picks up a different number (1-866-427-7451). Didn't even ring long enough for me to pick up nor did they leave a message.
I missed a call from 905-323-3900 at 5:11 am EST this morning. I don't care if it's a real, fake or scammers. Really who calls someone at 5:11 am in the morning for anything. No real company calls anyone that time of morning. They are suppose to check what time zone they are calling before they dial. In my eyes something is not right with this picture. They better be glad I didn't hear the phone. Today is 4/4/2014.
905 is an area code in the Niagara/St. Catharines region in Ontario, Canada. It's not a "900" number. The phone number would have to be 900-323-3900 for those rates to apply. I phone 905 numbers everyday because I have numerous clients in this region. You would be charged regular long distance (or international long distance fees if you weren't in Canada) to your own phone company if you were to call this particular number.
With that said, I still wish they'd leave a damn message as to why they're calling me, seeing how this call centre represents so many companies (and I have no services with the ones they list when you call the number back either). Annoying
Received calls and returned call before looking up this site. Said it was from Asia and something about a customer survey. I will contact the phone company and police department. What about any charges I am responsible for? No one mentioned anything about that.
Called and hung up twice.
The people on this blog saying It is not a scam are the scammers.
I called it back and it said it's Transcomm
Keeeep calling than no answer! NO MORE fucxxxxing call....
I just received a call from this number... Turns out it was Parmalat, responding to an email I had sent about yogurt... So not sure why everyone's getting different info??
I live in Australia & got a call from this number.. I don't have a credit card. Why would an Australian get an American to chase up money?
The rep did not state he/she works for Nucomm/Transcom (as required), rather stated that he/she is calling from Canadian Tire.
I'm going to complain to Canadian Tire and going to cancel their card for using this company.
I found this with an internet search on the number calling me daily and not leaving a message. I do not answer long distance calls on my cell unless I recognize the number. If it is important and relevant to me the caller will leave a message. I guess after reading the following that is a policy everyone with a cell should follow:
This number called and after doing some googling I found this: SCARY:
"Wahpeton Police Chief Scott Thorsteinson said Thursday a Wahpeton woman reported receiving a phone call from someone who claimed to be from the Qwest telephone company. That person told her to call a 900 phone number to respond to a survey.
Instead of dialing that phone number, she made another call, an action that may have saved her a huge charge on her telephone bill.Thorsteinson said the woman contacted Qwest, who told her this was a scam and to report it to her local police department. "If she would have called that number, it could have ended up costing her $100 a minute."
The number in question was 905-323-3900. He said the fact that it's a 900 number "should cause people to get their eyebrows up" because these are toll calls with varying per-minute charges. "We'd like to get the word out (on calls such as this) so our citizens don't wind up with $2,000 phone bills."
It's common for scams such as this to have phone numbers with an unfamiliar area code like that one. "A lot of these scams originate out of the West Indies or different points in the Caribbean," Thorsteinson said. "I don't know why, that's just the way it is."
call from telemarketer who tried to sell me insurance
they got my name from a list that they may have bought from Canadian Tire Corp because i have a Canadian Tire credit card
I will now refuse to shop at Canadian Tire and will cancel my credit card with them.
Haven't we had enough of this type of nonsense?
its time to fight back
caller wanted to sell me overpriced insurance. she said that because I have a Canadian Tire Credit card it's a great deal, blah, blah, blah
if you need insurance, contact an insurance professional, it is my experience that these insurance products are absolute garbage and provide little value to the end user.
But it's only 20$ a month, they say? You are better off burning it than buying insurance from a telemarketer.
They obviously got my name from a list they bought from Canadian Tire Corp. Well, I won't be shopping there anymore and will be canceling my credit card.
Lets fight back, aren't we all sick of this crap!
then leave a message instead of hanging up when a machine answers the call-company's like yours are very annoying
I didn't answer good thing
I always get calls from this number wirh unknown name on my caller ID. A legit company shown their name or leave a message with their name & number. Instead if calling 3x a day. That's shady.
these effers should all get corpol tunnel and i hope they get leprosy
Caller ID shows Micro Marketing. Called on behalf of Bright House Network, Florida
ERMAGHERD DER TERLERMERKETER
Stop calling me.I have no idea who you are,
I have a girlfriend in the Philippines, she works at Comcast,she calls me from this number on her breaks
Some of these posts are pretty funny, anyway, that's the real deal:)
Same here. They started calling me yesterday.
They call and say that they represent Canadian Tire Mastercard. No one knows what they are talking about when you ask questions. Different people phone and it is always the same. We phoned the credit card company and they said that no one from the company phoned us.
Got a call from this number and they told me I won a trip to Disney Land and to Mexico.
The prize was over $3000.00 but I had to pay 574.00. The scary thing was, he had my Visa Credit card.
This is correct, it was a survey for a recent Comcast service that I had.
These people get your # from Canadian Tire and try to sell you insurance .... accident insurance
