Received a call from this # this morning. No Caller Id was on the display only the number. When I answered the women on the line asked if she was talking to "and she referenced the name on a bank account". I asked who she was and why she was calling she said she was doing a survey for the RBC. Told her never to call again and hung up. Contacted RBC to report and they indicated that there should be no survey calls on their behalf unless its to follow-up on something related to the account. Just a heads up this is probably a scam how they got the account name (it's very unique) is beyond me. I too received a call from this number (416) 233-0047. The person was just breathing through the phone which sounded very scary and I said “hello!” two times and I hang up. I went online to reverse the number to see who it is; I see that a lot of other people also have received strange phone call from this number.
The best thing to do is to call the police and report his/her sorry ass. Which I did, I wrote an email and report it through phone. If everyone here to do what I did, I am sure he will put back in jail where he belongs.

I got the call saying it was some company (the same didn't sound right) conducting a survey on behalf of RBC. It was a young lady on the line.... Someone called RBC about this? What have they done so far? We are Friday Dec 7 / 12 . It is 13: 58 hrs. Just got a call from (416) 233-0047. Didn't answer... they didn't leave any message. Sorry for the bold language but it pisses me off since it is not a first. I have worked for RBC and know that they only use 800 numbers when calling people. Don't believe them if they say it's RBC, just report it to your local branch or go on their website and you'll find an 800 number for fraud marketing calls.I got this call too but didn't pick it up. If they call again I'm going to answer and tell them I am reporting them. this number just called my home phone and no one was there. creeepy Just called the market probe number, and told them not to call me again and to talk to their operators who hang up with rude comments. (416) 233-1555 is their number, call them and annoy them like I did. Call rbc and [***] them [***] out! Problem solved
