Scammed for skin care product called Image Revive (good reviews all over google). Same # called me before I filled out the on-line application. Got the product that didn't do anything. Called on day 14 as I noticed a charge pending for $161.35. They said the 14 day trial was over and I owed them for the product (1.5 mls) even though it took 3 days delivery. Credit company alerted and now you are too. Block this number! Keeps calling but never leaves a message. Clearly this number belongs to a fraudster I have had 5 phone calls so far today! I am not answering it but was curious enough to check if there were any other reports. I have the number blocked though I still see it has called after the fact. Glad I checked! It's been a day with several other numbers that aren't familiar. Must be a blitz or something because they have got to be from the same place given the close proximity time wise! Called me and told me I got in a minor accident. I just told him I never got into an accident and my car was brand new. He giggled kind of nervously and I just hung up. My father knew wright away and told me to hang up. So we put up our house for sale recently, and these people call saying they want to come see our house. Don't know if they will actually show up. But this number has been calling our number for a year now from time to time. I know it's some Indian people who can use the indian accent really well but can also use a Canadian accent. Same company called my cell with an unknown number (but could see PRA on the caller ID!) and ask for my former married name (1995!)in the USA when I was a teen back then I accumulated a few cc but paired them off. As of 1996 I was back to my middle name and had perfect credit since then. Now I move back to Canada and for some reasons they are asking for my former name. As I am curious but don't want to fall into their game I said that I was a friend of hers but she now lives abroad.
They said that they where from Revenue Canada and that they tried to send her a check of $46 but it was returned and they needed the full address of the person they where asking for (my former married name from 1995!). I said well give me your phone number and I will have her call you back but as I said she lives abroad and we only Skype once in a while so that is all the info I have. She said that they only have call out numbers! As I was on the phone I googled Revenue Canada and told her I have the number and will call her back as my cell battery was dying. She said that her number was not associated with the revenue Canada phone number on the site!!?? WHAT??!!
This viper argued with me, I played her game, I needed to know how far they would go, pretending to be a revenue Canada agent is fraud, isn't it??!!
Before hanging up she again said, remember this is very important and I am from Revenue Canada, we have a check for her, I will call you back next week to give you time to get her info!!
She gave me her name (can't remember) and I did call Revenue Canada, no one of that name, of course! I have told the RC of this situation, they toke the info down, I was told it is indeed very illegal to pretend to be a Gov agent in deceit to get money out of me no matter if we owe them money!!
I usually don't post online much but I feel people needs to know, as she sounded very convincing and now with tax time around the corner it makes people believe it could be for real!

Did not answer call from this number. Today is December 16, 2015. Told me I have PC virus.. No computer so not possible!! Lol Indian guy claiming he was a tech from whatever company and was calling me about my computer, I just hung up immediately Saturday morning, a woman with an Indian accent called me from this number. She identified herself as a Microsoft employee, then warned us that a malicious virus has infected our computer. We threatened to call the police and tell them about her fraudulence. She said "go ahead" then hung up. This man called. Kept repeating , I am like sister to him. His name Adeel Ahmond. I won $50000 from telephone co. I kept listening to him. I have to go to western union and deposit $250 payable to Citibank in Dubai. They will send $50000. I asked him to send a letter because I can not understand well enough. He kept on explaining to me. When he not give up. I hang up. He called me twice after. Didn't pick the phone. got a few calls from this number saying i won trip from canadian tire store.other day same number microsoft I get this number i say hello no answer ,i tryed calling number but no answer , or busy whats with that I tried Google Hangouts on my iPhone calling my home phone from Ottawa to Ottawa and this is the number that came up on the home phone call display. Hangouts is a very easy to use VoIP app that lets you make outgoing calls. You can't receive calls from non-Google Hangouts users though as dialling this number gets you a busy signal."?you've gotta ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"Is this a legitimate call from a techie friend who uses Hangouts, or is this from a scammer who has figured out how to hide his identity behind Hangouts? How lucky do you feel?
