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'd researched this number online to see if was a telemarketing call....Glad I did!They keep calling my cell phone. And they never leave a message when I don't answer. It is from Market Probe.
The guy responsible for all the telemarketers is:
Senior Vice President, Research and Operations: Mr. Tim McCutcheon, M. A. home address and phone: 416-439-3872. 733 Scarborough Golf Club Rd. Toronto
He is also on Linketh
He just called back and cursed at me. I've gotten this call a few times this week and I picked up this morning around 9:30ish.. and she had a creppy "shakey" like voice and was like "Hello is Jessica _____ there" and I replied with "Yes, this is her" and then she hungup on me. ?!? You guys crack me up... I have an unlisted #... where did they get it?? for real? a, it prob is a survey company, and if you call the bank, no, they won't know about it, it's their corporate office that sponsors them, not the branch. This also means they got your number FROM THE BANK! 2nd, if it is a scam or any other type of general survey and they happen to call you, it's cuz they use a computer dialer... it just goes thru a series of numbers, over and over.... 1111...1112....1113....1114.... get it? so your unlisted number means nothing when it comes to that. get a clue. all an unlisted number means is if they attempt to call 411 and ask for your phone number by name, it's not found. nothing more. Thanks for the contact info in the above post. I got the call from 416-233-0047 same thing as others I called and demanded to be removed from their list -we will see.Thanks Got a call said nothing 625pm Wed 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?
