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.

Call rbc and bi*** them a**** out! Problem solved hi paul just wondering whatever happened with rbc when you warned them? 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. Constant, constant calling from this number. Have answered a few times, but get dead air, indicating that multiple calls are being placed at the same time, and the one who picks up first gets the caller on the other end. Extremely annoying. Please STOP!I am registered on the Do-Not-Call list. Someone from 416-233-0047 called my house. The person they asked for was not home. I asked who was calling and they told me they could not give me that information. Really!!! Ever since I opened a bank account with RBC I have been getting calls from strange numbers including 416-233-0047. I have been very careful to never give out my phone number for exactly thisd purpose. It is very obvious to me that RBC are selling there clients phone numbers or at trhe very least passing them on. I woould suggest that anyone being bothered by these calls look back and they will likely be able to trace a connection to RBC. Personally I think it is appauling for a persdonal bank to be acting in this manner. Thye just lost one new customer send them the same message.
