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.

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. I got the same call, the young girl asked for my husband. I told her that he was not home and she hung up!! Then, the next day they called again. I asked what it was about and they said they wanted to only speak to my husband about our finances... I told that finances in my household involves me too and I my number is privately listed, so therefore you need to id yourself or remove me from you call list. She said it was customer service. I told them I don't want solliciting calls and remove me from your list. got call from this number too, no one there...unable to look it up in 411. My RBC Account Manager told me that I would be receiving a call from the survey company mentioned and sure enough the number that appeared on the phone matches the other post's comments. Multiple calls in a week, when I picked up the phone nobody answered.
