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.

Got a call said nothing 625pm Wed I did not give my permission for my cell number to be releasedto anyone. This was for RBC.Would like my number removed. 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. a girl call for my husband she ask for his correct name, when i ask if she want to leave a message she hang up the phone, It is legitimate. It is a market research company hired by RBC to follow up with customers who have had appointments with their branches. They knew when, who, which branch etc of my recent meeting. Relax, not everything is a scam and surveys never leave a message. FYI. Just called them back and it's market prob...i recently made a purchase through them they want feedback from the parts i ordered for my scooter
