When I received this call few minutes ago, i found out my cell phone couldn't work when I answered it because calling function was dead... Just received a call - they didn't say anything. All I heard was someone breathing lol. I just got a call from (416) 363-5905, knew it was a scam the second i picked it up . Wish these Scammers would stick to a known range of numbers .
Just put another phone # for the Blacklist.
GUELPH— Police are warning residents to beware of a recent phone scam where the caller claims to be from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
The number typically shows up on a caller ID as (416) 363-5905, officers said, and the caller identifies themselves as working with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. In the scam, the caller describes an outstanding debt in India that must be settled before an immigration or citizenship hearing. If the debt is not paid, the recipient will be deported the fraudster warns.
The caller will then advise that the debt can be settled but a legal fee in excess of $5,000 must be paid. They may request multiple installments through Money Gram.
Guelph Police are advising residents not to respond to these communications because Citizenship and Immigration Canada does not request payment of debts in other countries through Money Gram.
To verify the authenticity of a call from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, people can contact the organization directly at 1-+1 888-242-2100 from Monday and Friday between 8 a.m., until 4 p.m.
Officers said if anyone has responded to a fraudulent communication and become a victim of fraud, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre can be contacted at 1-+1 888-495-8501.
Just got a missed called from this number . Called back just to get a busy signal . I'd love for this guy to piss me off .. I'll have him sh*tting his pants in no time . 1:30 in the morning. No answer! Look at time before u ring. People with families sleeping . These f*ckers called my house phone at 1:00am Got a call from the same guy described in all these emails, background noise, accent. Stated he was from Windows and my computer had been hacked. As soon as I said I would have my husband look into it, he hung up. Not rude but obviously sketchy and a scam. Keep calling me for insurance, they do not give up. What should I do to stop them calling me almost everyday? These people are incredibly scary. They call all the time and they are VERY aggressive. They get forceful and angry. And it's always something about my computer, they're calling from the IT department. It's an obvious scam. I just get scared by how forceful and aggressive and rude they get. Are there not government regulations on this stuff?? It's one thing to get an email scam but to have a real voice on the other end start yelling at you for not giving them information is scary. got a call from this number at 10:10 last night. a guy claiming that i hit his car and left a note with my number on it...when i tried saying that it was impossible he got very aggressive, so i said to him, send me a picture of the note and I will have my police friends see if it matches my hand writing. he hung up quickly. Was agreesive and told me to confirm my IP address to amend security issues on my computer. I asked him if you are from Microsoft when did I install 8.1? didn't know, funny thing is don't have a computer right now. He started yelling, telling me to listen, listen!! A little worried the phone number is located in Toronto. Got a call from 1 (416) 363-5905All cirquits are busy when I called back rang 3 times stopped ( was in process of rejecting the call anyway) thenmy logg showed one missed from "anonymous" and one from this number ... oh the humanity ... They tryied to be a travel agency. Quite rude, even threaten police if we did not that their offer. this guy is still making calls......thank goodness I checked this site as soon as my phone started ringing........I didn't pick up just got a call from this number (416) 363-5905 a guy with a thick Indian accent claiming to be Windows Live Support checking for viruses on computers....what was strange was he had my personal information already and he knew my windows serial number. He wanted me to give him access to my computer and I told him I wasn't going to that and he got upset Missed a call, never actually rang. Tried to call back and the number was dead. Seems very suspect.
