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
I am on the National do not call list and they still call. The male caller knew my name and unlisted number. When I asked who was calling, he said it was about a market survey. When I asked what the survey was about, he sighed and hung up. I called back and no answer. I called a few minutes later and the line was busy. I have filed a complaint with CRTC. (Just google National Do not call list and follow the links to file a complaint). Everyone should complain as they are relentless. Have called several times in the past few days. No message. MOST annoying. I've blocked the caller. looks like this last reply may work for one of these outbound call centers, well lady, or man, get a f *en life, we very busy people have more to do with our time than sit around doing some survey that will take an hour to complete, listening to some stupied [***] on the phone ramble on. Loss our numbers, get a real job, and get a life, stop bothering us people.so you think you are the only people who put theirself through school, i did all by myself, and while i was doing it i didn't have to bother anyone.Don't you people just get the f*** hint.GO AWAY! i got to many times from thic ph (416) 233-0047 they jest askd form my name and they stop the phon i tryd to call them is busy all day i have edmonton nomber
