had 2 calls today and just googled right away and luckily found this since I had my phone muted at the time of calls... This number called my cell but I didn't see it at the time & no msg left. I called it back later - it's NRG research group which is a perfectly legitimate market research company in Winnipeg that conducts opinion polls, focus groups etc. You don't have to be afraid of them. This is how businesses collect info about their products or services & helps them better it by getting feedback from the public. Focus groups even pay for your time! Received a call from (204) 989-8235. Did not answer as I was busy They did not leave a voice mail so I did not call back. First time I got called from this number. Will see if it comes through again Caller: 1-(204) 989-8235
Have called numerous times and always at weird hours or on Saturdays and Sundays. Again, at weird or late hours. Just got another call from them at 8:30 pm! Don't know who they are, just googled the number and found there have been lots of complaints. Starting to get on my nerves. I've received so many scam calls lately that I don't answer my phone unless I KNOW the number. They leave no voice mail as well.
I got a call from the same number on a Friday night, I didn't pick up the call and they didn't leave a voicemail. After reading these comments and looking online, it seems suspicious to me. Blocked! wont stop phoning . asking me about if i drive which i dont and proceed to ask driving related questions this number calls on my cell which i do not give the number out to anyone, so likely sold by Bell or Virgin Mobile. I did not answer - they keep calling at night: 8:13, 8:20. . . they called my cell phone and my number has not ever been given out to anyone for any advertising purposes. Don't know who they are, but they should go f*ck themselves instead of calling us. Caller: (204) 989-8235
call, they don't leave messages - and since I don't recognize the phone number, I don't answer..they are annoying - whomever 'they' are!!!
MTS tellamarking of all people to bug bug me my family (STOP) This report was send too RCMP did not answer ... This number called my phone around 430 and again around 830, I answered the call, she said she was calling from energy research, on behalf of Manitoba public insurance. Told her I could not talk ATM, said she will call me back tomorrow, asked me my name and I said well how did you get my phone number ! ? She said it's randomly picked. More of a nuisance if anything Called and said they were doing research on Union Gas customers and we hung up. I hate being bugged. Just called me. No one on other end when answered. Then no voicemail. Seems to be a phone scam number or survey crap judging by the previous posts. I just received a phone call from this number (9PM local time). They said they were doing a survey for Canada Post, so I said maybe. First question: the number I just called is it a landline or a cell phone; and I said how did you get this number? She said it was randomly selected. OK, so I said you pick what you want... She said I can't, you have to tell me which one it is. I said, sorry but I would not answer that question expecting to continue on the survey but she said, sorry I can't continue. OK, i said and Bye... Why would Canada Post cared if you are on a landline or a cell phone? They call about research on Manitoba Hydro and telling something that i dont understand , i was suspicious so i told him to call back . Google it and seems one of those scams. They should not phone cell phones. They are jerks. All i want to say is that when you see this phone number, don't pick up. It was charged to my bill. Why got a call from that number twice this weekend this time no one was on the line. they just called me. i thought it said energy research. asked me if i had a safe place to talk. i said ya and thought she was guna tell me some secret s*** about some energy research they were doin. then they asked if i was 21 to 25? i was like no. then shes like nevermind thats all i have to ask you. i was like am i in danger or something? but she hung up. i was like what the f*** the government is after me or something. then i googled the number and found this. now i realise she was asking if i had a safe place to talk as in im not driving or anything. and i also realise i smoke too much weed its making me paranoid. It is ILLEGAL for a survey company to leave a voice message on an answering machine! If a Survey Company calls a number and reaches an answering machine, they MUST hang up, and then they keep retrying until they reach a human, if they do not reach a human after 8+/- times, they have to stop, and that number is thrown back into their system for another survey. I know this, as I and my friendF have worked for a Survey Company/s in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Who is this really then? ICBC uses nrg to do surveys Called, no message was left. These [***] keep calling my cell phone NOBODY but my work and my family have this number so that leave good old TELUS selling my number. This is utter [***] that a marketing company or what ever or whoever they are calling my cell phone phone minutes cost money so they can go to hell
