    Caller: Scotiabank

    Had a FREE gift for me. A $5,000 insurance policy. Ya right. Nothing's free.

    BTW, sounde like a call centre. Hear all kinds of workers talking in background. IF, - Scotiabank, shame on them. A call centre in operation during the pandemic. Disgusting...

    Just read through all the comments. They just called. I never pick up if I don't recognize the number. I'm registered on the DNC (do not call) list in Canada and still they call. I will be looking to report them to the Canadian DNC agency with is Government and enforces FCC regulations. Maybe they'll be able to shut them up for good.

    They call every day for weeks now, usually between 8 and 9 pm. Most annoying that they call after my son is in bed, causing him to awaken sometimes, asking "who's calling?".
    I have registered with the Canadian Marketing Association on a do-not-call list, and that has stopped Bell Canada from incessantly calling me. Now if only everyone would refer to the CMA's do-not-call list.
    To register with the CMA's do-not-call list, go to http://www.the-cma.org/?WCE=C=47|K=224217

    If you search the internet you will find a ton  of complaints and blogs on Optima and Call-Net. (416) 581-1076 and (416) 915-7933)I responded by emailing both companies and copying the DO NOT CALL folks and ScotiaBank  info @ the-cma.org and  mail.president @ scotiabank.com. I did give them my name, town, and phone number but obviously will not post that info here. Anonymous probably won't leave you with much credibility so best to own your response! Think of other cool numbers to give the bank instead of your own..Prison...Another telemarketing Company...Chat lines..I made my changes online and it took literally  afew seconds. Have fun! (FYI-The banks don't NEED your home number. They can call you at work during business hours if it's a legitimate concern. Your home number is used primarily to hussle you for other services.)Here is my solution....."You have called my home repeatedly and I understand from a little internet research that you Optima Marketing and the equally annoying Call-Net Communications say that you are making courtesy calls for ScotiaBank.I so appreciate Scotiabank's interest in wasting my time this way that I have contacted Scotiabank's service centre to let them know my home phone number has changed and I have given them my ScotiaBank manager's direct line. I'm sure they will appreciate the courtesy hang-ups just as much as I do.The phone number you are currently calling is now on the CMA Do Not Contact list and you might want to start thinking about honouring it.Cheers!Rachel XXXP.S. I have posted my method of dealing with the likes of you on a number of blogs and reaction seems to be favourable.  I really can't understand why ScotiaBank would employ such a seedy marketing technique but I hope they enjoy the feedback if the internet picks up on the potential for fun times by giving out your employers' direct lines."

    Repeated calls.  No one there when I answer.  No voice messages.
  • Screw Them
    Why I hate having a cell, reason #1. People who I dont want to talk to calling me, or numbers I dont recognize. Like, dammit, Im not PAYING to talk to someone I dont know. Im not PAYING to be bitched at or whatever they are calling for. Damn, and they call me like twice a day. Can we kill someone, is it legal, if they keep annoying us like this? If this was like Survivor, theyd be voted off the island by now.
  • Do not call
    Although telemarketing calls annoy me too, I'm still a bit of an advocate of call centres.  My personal experience as a phone rep introduced me to the business world and launched my career.  Not to mention, the industry employs thousands, many of which are students who rely on these jobs to pay for school.In my previous experience in call centres, I routinely added people to the Do Not Call list.  Telesolicitors are required display a contact # in order to provide you the option.Simply call the number back, (416) 581-1076, and leave your name and the number where they contacted you and request your number to be added to the do not call list.If they are routinely calling and hanging up, it might be worthwhile mentioning what happened and when the call occured.  Clearly, it's not in their interest to be more of a nuissance than is inherent to their business.The challenge I found was getting an irate message from someone who we were calling on a regular basis but they failed to leave the number and therefor could not be removed from our list.Hope this helps.

    Got a similar call again today on my unlisted cell#. They left no message.  No Caller ID either.  Such attention is UNwanted!
