A woman claiming to be from BC Cancer Foundation, wanting my banking information to update my donation. I asked for a number so I could call back with the information but she said she would call back. She gave some legitimate information which alarmed me but I did not give my banking info - she was quite persistent. Claiming she is calling from St Paul Hospital, I told her I’m very busy and asked her to send me all the information, then she said will call me back, should be a scam and blocked the number! I didn't answer Caller: (604) 755-7118
Claimed to be from BC Children's Hospital asking for a donation.
I keep getting a call from this # and theres never anybody on the other end. Icalled the # back and it`s from a fund raising firm. I left a message to tell them to take me off there list as they directed but the calls keep coming. When I stopped what I was doing and got to the phone they had already hung up after 4 rings. annoying.Reply ! Look at your phone bills and make sure that they are not charging you when you answer the phone. There are scams out there that you only have to answer your phone and there is no one there and then the next thing you know your phone bill has been charged an outrageous amount of money. I say, don't pick up the phone if you don't know the number, if it's an important they will leave a message. Tell all your friends and family that if you don't recognize a number you don't answer the phone and if they have an emergency tell them to leave a message and you will get right back to them. Contrary to what another person posted PLEASE DO NOT EVER CALL 911 to report telemarketing calls. You are tying up a line dedicated for life threatening emergencies only!!! Report them to the Do not Call Registry or speak with them and ask them to put you on their do not call list and they have to comply.
Telemarketing calls are annoying but not life threatening.
Strategic Communications is a very nice company that raises funds for many non-profits. They have many clients, so they could be calling about any one of them. They id themselves as the NDP.. Probably fundraising.

They don’t leave a message, but continue to call. Guaranteed this is spam.
