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.
After about 10 calls from this number over the last few months, I finally stayed on the line for a few seconds instead of hanging up when there is no one there. It IS apparently , the NDP fundraising and/ or soliciting memberships.I told him how annoying it Has been .. since I do support NDP and have been hanging up on them.
What I guess it that some telemarketing calls are dialed by computer and only respond with a live voice if someone does NOT hang up.. Pretty inefficient way to contact people I'd say. I wonder how many people HAVE reported them.
Well i guess we are all nice people but like many others i'm fed up with calls all day long that sometimes continue up until 9.30pm. Strategic Communications are well known for this..I'd suggest engaging with them & belittle them....you can be aggressive and unload with a string of profanities.
You can ask who they represent...ask for their name,... ask for their supervisor's name & post this information on here. I'd recommend answering, be aggressive and tell them that the next time that they call you will report them....make a log...post the log.
If you're in B.C. & are with Telus look at the front of the book & there is a section that explains how to deal with harrassment. Yes these calls are harrassment. A few years ago i followed up. Yes, believe it or not you are instructed to call 911....Within an hour I had a call from the police & they dealt with it.
I also have another line for a fax machine....an unlisted #. I kept getting faxes for paint ball nights and my favourite one from Global Training Services...Courses for Computer training, Anger Management, Behavioral Interviewing techniques, etc etc etc. After calling several times to unsubcribe i got thru and left a threating call that i'd take further action.....Its no different to the flyers at your door in triplicate. A waste of MY PAPER & MY TONER.......If you can get their fax # you can tape together 3 sheets of paper (end to end), paint black on outside & fax......Do this for 20 minutes & it will possibly use up most of their toner. Call them in the morning & ask for management and let them know how you feel.
Unfortunately i need my fax machine as i do business with Canada Revenue and Border Services.
Some of you may recall that someone was fined recently......somewhere around 30 or was it 300 grand
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. Getting 4 or 5 calls a day for the past 3 days. On the few times that I answer there's nobody on the line. They have been calling daily for quite some time. I usually just hang up when there is no-one there within four seconds but his time I hung on and hung on and finally just got a busy signal. Most annoying! 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.
