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 keep getting this call as well. I am on the telus network, however this call is NOT from Telus.They are calling to get information from you to scam you. I've looked into it through Telus and they swear it is not them.Do not give them any information, and everyone is right your best bet is to just ignore the call. But whatever you do please do not give them any information. hey you all,
its July 10th today,2008
866-369-9826 just called.
im from Ottawa/Ont region.
I called back its "TELUS" well....its not, i called REal telus from my mobile (*611) asked them if they have any Telus provider with the phone number of 1866-369-9826. she did a quick search for me, couldnt find it.
she said Sometimes Telus does call and sometimes they do hang up just to see if you cell phone works...which makes sense, but God...calling once a week is stupid. She said that you shouldnt tell them anything. At all. just hang up. or dont answer. i put it in my contact lest as "a*sholes pretend their telus" that way ill know next time they call just dont bother. hang up.
everytime they call they ask for my dad(and they know his name) because my phone is under his name(im not old enough)
i say hes not here and they say they will call back, they do...after a week or two.
-If it was the Real Telus(i say real i mean your provider.)
so they would email you if you have an online acount with them, or atleast send you a letter because they do know your adress.
-if it was the real telus they would call back after a few days or atleast ask When your dad will be home.(when they ask for him)
This is OBVIOUSLY a scam of some sort.
not sure what they do, what they want, or who it is.
But what i do know is that its not Telus, and they dont even know who or what it is.
you can try call telus(*611 from your mobile) and ask them, but they dont know.
i guess what we or one of us can all do is get a complain to your city?
that there is some scam going on...because calling Telus and complaing wont work.
The number that calls us all, is not even updated Telus.
If you call (*611) they will tell you about the new plan going on about the texting that is 15 cent...
but the fake telus thing wont even say it it goes straight to the menu.
Seriously...its understandable, it is not telus.
Yup, totally not Telus. I just spoke with them, and first he asked me whether I had given the person calling any information (which i didn't) and he said they have no numbers that would a) call at 7:30pm, and b) call from a 1-866-396 number.He said they were going to get their security team on it, and find out where the calls were coming from.So it is indeed some kind of scam. Crazy! 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.
This is my email id [email protected] Since this summer they call me minimum one time a week!!!

I believe they now call from their home phones which is why we don't see any name on caller display
