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. Had the same call. Pushy. Kept asking him questions. Wanted me to turn on my computer. I am glad I did not pick it up. Called 8:52am. Thank you for this website, now I know this is a scam call. 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 i have recd the call from this no (416) 363-5905 around 5.05 p.m on 02/03/205 i recd the call they ask me your visa card is stopped but didn't reply too much because i called this no bck for inquiry it was busy so report it is a scammer received a call today from this same man mentioned in other emails. Oddly I am having trouble with my computer and because agree to send problem reports on to Apple, Microsoft, etc. I thought this call was ligit. Although the number says 416, I do believe he is calling from deepest, darkest Africa if not Pakistan and his speech is very stilted with a ton a backround noice. Anyway as I am at work and my laptop is at home, I told him thanks but no thanks. just got a call from this number -a guy with a thick Indian accent claiming to be Windows Live Support checking for viruses on computers - very sketchy. He ended up hanging up on me.
