These scammers are very professional in what they do to get personal information of your banking procedures so do not be taken in by these automated telephone calls as you will be nailed financially with their scamming. This number is legitimate (as mars 2016), being new Credit Card Automated Alerts service. However beware: others may fraudulent fake their ID to be the same as RBC number! RBC NOT asks you for personal info!
I receive more calls from this number and I always hang-up. Make some research, the call is legitimate automatic call from RBC visa, as it figure in their official site RBC.COM (here http://www.rbc.com/privacysecurity/ca/alert-automated-call-faq.html#b1)
There are many numbers: for credit cards:
"Our number will be displayed as
for debit cards:
"Our number will be displayed as
It is a new way to reduce RBC personnel, but also to speed-up fixing account problems, as all process is automatic. The machine just wants to deliver a message, sometimes important. If any doubt, hang-up and call RBC yourself at your usual RBC number. The only problem is, if you don't listen the message, that you don't know if it is urgent to contact RBC or not, as, for example, a blocked card may bounce some of your payments (that was happen to me). You may always identify the department using the caller ID (for instant the current number 1-877-214-5948 is for VISA department), so call them at your well-known number.
I just dealt with this as well. I was four days late on my credit card payment. it's eASY to fake an outgoing call display but the echo/router of the phone companiy isn't accessible so.....when I get these calls it says it's coming from the USA........the scammers can copy and paste a legitimate rbc number to fake a call display but lose the game when the echo pattern says its from the usa....i call rbc in canada they wont use a usa originating phone service. RBC-NOT!!!! I do not have a RBC acc or a cr.card and they are calling 3x a day! No bank will ask for your pers.info over the phone and NOT by voice mail! SCAM! IF THE BANK CALLS FOR ANY REASON, THE NAME WILL SHOW WHO IS CALLING.EX COLLECTOR My friend knew I had picked up the phone when stocker cameron hewett called the wrong number anyomiously and using a fake name Kevin . By the way cameron hewett never changes or stops being a complete creep. Thanks to my friend for all your help with getting cameron hewett dani hewett christain hewett back as always. My friend heard the whole thing while recording your stupid [***] cameron hewet.Happy early halloween and I am the closet person to do the most damange .Hahahah to you cameron hewett for allowing me to prank you back and for you being your preddictable ugly self. Warned you all cameron hewett dani hewett. Christiain hewett everytime and you dumbas never learn or listen very good. You all really [***] up majorly jerks go back to your mother ship.You are stupid and nuts and not in a good ... You better keep tabs on your bank statement. A bank will never ask for personal information over the phone. It is actually RBC's new way of doing business. Scary its super legit. Make sure you give them all your information. I received the same call and was unsure. So I called the Royal Bank, 1-800-769-2555, told the lady about my phone call I had received and that I was to call 1-877-214-5948 back, and she told me the number was legit! So why, when one person calls RBC are they told the numer is legit, the next person calls and they are told its a scam?
