And the list goes on....all scams. Do not press any number or give any of them any info. There must be a dozen or so more numbers. You are not alone in this stupidity.
I'm curious how many of you who got a call from this number have ever used the sites teambuy,dealfind,groupon,cakedeals or similar sites that offer a special reduced price offer for restaurants, trips, and other items for your city, or certain online women's clothing sites?
I ask this because I only received a call from this number only after recently making a purchase online from one of those sites, Maybe there's no connection and they really just call anyone. Just a thought though.
I was called in Montreal,Quebec, I said hello, got no answer, so I hung up my phone but I was curious as to who the long distance caller was. It does say Kimberly,Vancouver, when looking it up, but now I see it could be from anywhere.
I live in southern Ontario and have recieved several calls from this number in the past couple of weeks. I didn't answer and they left no message.
If this is a credit card scam like some have mentioned I'm hoping that some of the Government screwups like information on the 500,000 student loans that went missing hasn't fallen into the wrong hands.
I always get lots of telemarketing type calls even though I'm on the DNC list but the past few weeks has been outrageous as far as the number of calls I'm getting is concerned. As of today, Thursday, 52 different calls from different numbers since Saturday. No messages left from any of them.
dont call me ,im not interest stop this im tire of your call
Got a call from this number recorded voice mail do you have a credit card press one for good credit
PETER. U R my hero!!!!!
I live in St-Hyacinthe QC. I recently discovered that I could use the *60 service from my phone company (Maskatel). It enables me to block directly at my phone company the number that is calling. I'm up to 3 numbers now and will keep going until I have peace at home :)
I'm pretty sure this service is available from other telephone company. If everyone does this, these scams won't be able to do much. I suppose the phone companies get a report of what numbers we block. If not, they should.
this number has called a LOT lately both for credit card number and environnemental survey's
this number is DANGEROUS for sure. The very first time they called was 1 year ago : message telling you you're late for credit card payment , then the INDIAN MEN'S voice asking me for my info , persistant , transfer me to a woman after that, after unable to answer my questions they hang up...
for the last mont now it is starting again , this time with the survey (the only time I answer and hang up)
I'm already on the nationnal do not call list (so telemarketers can't call you, except company your doing businness with and donation call) so I know these calls are dangerous as I say before...
I called the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (aka PhoneBusters) and they told me this number is already know by them, and they cannot CUT this line so... I have a complaint file for this number at least...
Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre # is: 1 888-495-8501 or check out their website
Nationnal Do Not Call List # is: 1 866-580-3625
To day at 1.48 pm they called me ; I saw the number in the caller i d and took the phone and hung it back.I get this call quite often.Don't answer them
They are abusing the phone system and make life miserable for other people
Bell Canada (since they are calling me and I use Bell) or the RCMP should do some thing to stop these guys
This party called my land line last evening but i was out. The party failed to leave a message. This number has called my home in the past but i never answer it. I don't need the grief and i don't have the time to play their scam game

Reçu appel le 20 fév 11h46. Quand j'ai répondu message enregistré après 5 sec en anglais. J'ai raccroché immédiatement. TRÈS DOUTEUX
these calls have to stop! I think bell canada needs to be held accountable for who is illegally using Their phone lines!
I received a call from this number today. We live mid island area. A couple of weeks ago, we received a call from a woman with a strong undetermined accent demanding quite rudely, our credit card number. We apparently purchased a microwave oven and hadn't paid yet. We have not purchased a microwave nor anything else that required payment. (I"m not certain these two calls are related, but I certainly have my suspicions)
They called my number and when I called back I got the NOT IN SERVICE recording. What do I do to report this. Is this a safe site.
This number calls every night between 5pm-8pm. I never pick up and always look up numbers I don't know on here first. This type of thing makes me so angry. I wish there was something I could do! Yelling at them won't do a darned thing. Too bad we don't know their home phone number. I would hit redial continuously from 11pm-7am. I'm in the GTA area.
I received a call from 250 427 2494 at 3:53 today, February 19, 2013.
I followed the lead and pressed 2 which led to a person. When asked, he said he was calling from Vancouver. I told him I have asked before that they not call me again, and I was going to report them. He then hung up on me.
These calls are being made on Telus phone lines, but Telus tells me there is nothing they can do. They checked on this number and found it was coming from Kimberly, not Vancouver, but I think it was on a trunk line like previous callers, and originated in the USA. I am going to contact the no-call list again, which I have done several times, then my MP and ask him to put pressure on the CRTC and shut them down.
I Collect numbers now & check them on 800notes...don't answer...they're India Scammers. now using BCarea codes.
The exact thing happened to me today. Indian women then i was transfer to and indian guy when i refused to give my master-card number
250 is not only from BC, but also a number in Rwanda, that is why you get a not in service when you only put a 1` in front, and also why putting it on the do-not call list will not stop these calls. Have had several today so decided to check what other countries use it. Interesting !
just received a call from this number (2:50 pm, Feb 19, 2013, Kelowna BC). checked the caller id and decided not to pick up as I`m working and didn`t recognize the number. no message left. thanks, everyone, for all the info and insight
Putting this # on the do-not-call list won't work. Just because it comes up as 250 doesn't mean it comes from BC. It could be an International code so putting a 1 in front does not work. Have had several calls and never answer.
Call wanting to lower my credit interest - pushed 1 for operator - when I was only half way thru saying "Please take me of your list and do not call agsin" they disconnected without saying thanks or anything. If I receive another call where can we get of the list - these call were rampant in the UK this time last year sometimes up to 6 calls a day. I hope we in Canadain will not allow this.
Just recieved a call from this #, didn't give them any info, hung up. Scammers
Banks do not have strangers call on their behalf don't give any info.
did not know the number so i did not answer did not leave any messages when you call back the number is invalide

They keep calling with the hope you will fall for their scam, and they will be able to cheat you out of hundreds, if not thousands of dollars after getting your credit card number. The only way I was successful in completely ending the annoying calls was to answer the call and waste their time.The ''card services" scammers soon learn there is no money to be made at your number, and it will be removed from their robodialer list. If you're interested in the method I used, simply Google my name.
tired and fed up with that call coming on regular basis; what do we have to do to get rid of these calls once and for all?
no message at all left on my A.M.
