got several calls from this number, not answered the call as i do not answer 1-800 type numbers i figured this was a telemarketer type call, looks like i was right . they can kiss my a@% They don't call to tell you that you've gone over your data. They either text or you just get charged... I just got the call and I am not even close to going over my data 20Mb out of 2500 used.... It is Telus... advising that you have gone over your data. Called and spoke to someone named Vasa. She claims she is with the Telus Sales Team. She also informed me it would take 14 days to have this number put on the do not call list. She tried to tell me she could not put my cell number on their do not call list, I told her, if I ask to have it put on, you have to do it, please connect me to someone with authority, surprise....my number is now on the do not call list....I HOPE! Hello from India! I am pleased to speak to you today and thank you for your time.
This number is listed in India as a "Telephone Game Phone Number". This is a prank/joke/scam and can vary from people wasting your time to bad situations like identity requests to use for crimes.
Telephone Game is not a game - I dont know why India's TeleRegister calls it such. This is how "Telephone Game" works: A person loses thwir simcard with the callwr information. Someone finds the phone and insyead of returning it to officials, they call to make joke, or uae for crime. Finally once thia process occurs 1 more time, from this 2nd time lost forward, it is now a "Telephone Game". We never know who has the access to the number and the message/purpose is always changing.
Once I was manager at rhe call center for a support team. I peraonally can see that the common motivational/physical activity we do here is probably a way this occurs. "Musical Chairs" when we play bolluwood music and we get out of our chairs to promote ergonomic workplace - we run around the office and sit down fast upon the music going off. Its fun but when soneone is sutting at ur workstation they can steal ur terminal information. This is not good.
These a**holes called my phone number and asked for my husband, my husband is on his death bed as of this morning and I'm pissed that I have to deal with this right now. They never called before today. Not happy at all. This 866-369-9826 its a call center in India f*ck Telus those outsourcing a**holes They call randomly and leave no mssg. Just figured it's a "everybody wants something that will take ur $$$$$$". Lol Don't call me please and thanks call your mama and mother her lolol 866-369-9826 has called daily for some time, never leaves a message, and is just dead-air when answered.
When calling it back a "welcome to Telus" message is played, but when calling Telus customer service they deny that 866-369-9826 belongs to them... "It is definitely not Telus" according to their investigations team. It's either a scam or a 3rd party telemarketer (possibly hired by Telus) looking for renewals, personal info...
I have been receiving these calls for about 6 months only answered once, no one there. It's a minor annoyance :( Wouldn't miss them if they choose to stop calling me. KILL THE BASTARD, HE NCALLED ME 3 TIMES IN 3 DAYS
LEFT A MESSAGE TODAY , JUST sh*tY MUSIC.
This number is indeed Telus Mobility, I called it back from a land line and requested that they remove my number from that list and they did, without fuss or anything. Unfortunately, I must inform those who think the do not call list is good...it was hacked recently and they got everyone's number that was on that list... 866-369-9826
why not all file a complaint at the local police station , reporting it like it's a stalker.
that 'll learn them...
every report helps!!!!
I'm getting calls from this number to MY HOME, not my cell phone (which is Virgin, anyway, so...)
Every time I answer, I get silence. I say "Hello???" 3 times, then say, "Goodbye." and hang up. Every time.
They've called every day for over a week now.
i have no idea who it is so i don't pick up I recieved a call from this number today. I called telus ony tobe told that it may or may not have been telus calling and that I shouldn't worry.
The telus agent read some of the above comments and advised me to go this website to check and make sure the number was not a scam.
I asked her to make a note on the account because we are concerned the number maybe used to make long distance calls from our cell phone.
Regardless Telus should know they give telephone numbers to.
This is also the second call in 2 days from the same #.
Since the person who called also claimed to be from telus maybe they should look into this.
Also.. I am not a telus customer i get the call too ,12/8/2010 it is from a nursing site,it goes under comp. title Alphasearch Group Inc. P.O. Box 160 |dorr MI 49323 Mi is michagan i think its the u.s. anyway. here's what i am going to do BOYCOTT TELUS WHEN MY CONTRACT IS UP GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. on your voice mail your introduction tell people to boycott telus either have them leave a message or not if enuff of us do this maybe telus will get it. i am on the privacy list what good is it if telussells the number. if your with another provider leave a message on the voice mail boycott telus. from lifes experience its the sqeaky wheel that gets oiledhope this works They claim to be Telus, but this is some other telemarketing company. Not in Canada - they are ignoring the do not call list, or maybe got a copy of it so they have numbers to call. They are calling me several times a day. It is driving me crazy.
Telus doesn't need to call me & find out about my long distance and calling habits, they already know. Scam
