This time, the number is used by an "independent" group to see if you are eligible for a government energy-saving program (if you spend a certain amount per year on heating). They offer to send a technician to evaluate your current system and make recommendations. Of course, you are not obligated to buy anything. After 15 minutes of discussion, I told the women that we are not interested. She remained polite. When I tried to call back at this number, it said the number is no longer in service. I received 1 call today from (613) 737-2889.I called back and the # is not in service. How can this be? about visa Same thing here. CRTC should make call display - phone AND name - mandatory for all, including cell phones. Those people hide behind untraceable cell phones. Just criminal. Viens tout juste de recevoir un appel du meme numero et on dit que cest pour habitation Quebec. Ca existe meme pas! J'ai reçu un appel de (613) 737-2889 en mon absence. La personne n'a pas laissé de message et lorsque j'ai fait la recomposition du numéro, le système dit "Le numéro composé n'est pas en service". C'est bizarre ! Merci de vos commentaires. I just got a call from (613) 737-2889. I didn't answer. Thanks for the advice about this phone number. I won't call back. I am really fed up with this energy solicitation, told many times that I was renting to get rid of them, try to get my number removed, enough added to my blocked number list. Yep same thing, Propose to send technician for an evaluation...
When I call back I got a message saying this number is not available
I called Bell canada and they told me that could be a number use by telemarketing and that is why I can call back
She told me to file a complain to the CRTC anyway (they can track the number)
Apparently it is true (see this new about it)
So go ahead and file a complain....I just did ...
Got a call in french, a woman asked questions about the right time to send a technician for an evaluation about solar energy for an Hydro Quebec program. I searched for the number and never could call back. So fraud... 3 days in a row...getting called from supposibly a solar energy company call is in french...Every time I say I am NOT interested and that I am on the CRTC exception list and should'nt be bothered by anyone selling stuff like this
Yesterday I asked if they knew about CRTC and they hung up....Today I really gor fed up (Was napping) told them Gees 3rd day in a row that you are calling here, i am on exception list and they hung up...really harassing...
This number calls here regarding income tax. Seems these people are quite versatile in the businesses they chose to represent. The man at the end of the line seems quite convincing
Same thing happened to me today. No matter how many times I asked for a website address so I could check it out for myself, she wouldn't give me one. I eventually hung up. same thing for energy rebate.. sounds like scam.. asking too many questions. I told them i wanted to check their website and they hung up. How is it not possible to track and destroy these people with todays technology... thank you for your information. I also got calls form this phone number. When I don't know the caller, I don't answer. They called stating they were from microsoft and that my computer could not receive messages. Microsoft does not make house calls. scam Missed call, no message. Two call this morning, not answered but got the messages. No sound then "Good bye" and hang up. Caller had an Indian accent and identified themselves as "Windows Support Center". Caller id was "unknown", but it was a 613 number so appeared to be local. I'm on the Do Not Call list, but clearly they don't respect that. He offered to fix my computer -- an obvious phishing attempt. I told him there no such company as "Windows Support Center" and to go away.Really bugs me to think that these guys may snag some computer neophyte and con them into thinking they are from Microsoft by calling themselves "Windows" whatever. I've heard "Windows Technical Support" and other variations.Too bad the Call Type on this site doesn't include "Scammer". Calling them a Telemarketer feels like legitimizing what they do. there just ppl trying to steal info off your computer same thing, i said sorry . i dont have any computer, he said : " u can go kill urself mo..f..er " :( Called saying I had a computer problem that would cause my computer to slow overtime and that I would lose all documents and anything saved on it. I played along, and said I prefer to do thing myself rather than give you control of my computer, so walk me thru what you would be doing to show me this problem exist. He did, in the root registry it said my certificate could not be authenticated and may be invalid...the validity date said from 1996 to 2039..Not know if this was the way it was when I bought it i said thank you now how do I correct the problem. He said he'd have to take control and charge 125$. I said what program are you using for remote control, he stated the name that pops up when you search scams...I said forget it and hung up. he said I could verify his authenticity through feedbackwc @ live.com..I did do a complete scan of my computer afterwards..as he got me paranoid..but found nothing.
