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 a call from this number and a woman that talked to me wanted to do a survey. The survey was for RBC She indicatd that no personal info would be asked.I discontinued the call without any info being relayed. I then called RBC.with this persons phone number and particulars of conversation.The number was not in RBC's list of associates.The number is now being elevated to RBC. SECURITY as this call might have had the intent for fraud. Got call from this number several times in the past week. Always around the same time in the evening. I didn't answer and they never left voicemails. I called the number always occupied. I also have recieved 3 calls from this number. I don,t answer it and don't get any messages. When I try to call back, no one answers.I am reffring this number to the police, here in Sherbrooke, Qc.

I got this call and they asked for my boyfriend. When i said "no he's not here, who is calling" the man on the phone only said "Chris". I was put off and said "sorry who?" He again just said "Chris". I then asked "Chris from where? What company are you calling from?" And he he just said "oh" and hung up on me.
