    Scam
    Calgary, Canada
    Claims to be 411 wanting to update our 411 listing at a charge. Asks for the CEO or Manager of the company. Pro-tip, sales people, the CEO is never going to have enough time on their hands to make decisions about the 411 listing of the company. They are too busy making ACTUAL business decisions for the company. HAHAHAHA! Classic tell of a scam.

    Called asked if I was the person authorized to confirm updated information about the company. I have heard of companies that will ask a question that will get a "yes" answer than take that answer and apply it to a different question and you're on the hook for a contract you wanted no part of. I replied that I was not doing any upgrades and he hung up. Be careful.

    Someone called our A/P from ph#866-482-7474 and asked from our A/P where they can send the invoice. I talked with them and they said there is service done on 411 Website. and she was not lessening me and just talking. she took our company name. she transferred called to quail insurance service. seems like they were sitting together. Next, a guy talked with me and asked if I am the person who has authorization to purchase stuff. I said No, i will transfer ur call to our controller who can talk with you. Fortunately she didn't pick call and they didn't call back to us. We are Safe!

    Had the same thing with this number as several others - they call and when i answer they hang up. How is it possible that they can still operate with so many complaints over so many years.

    1-866-482-7474 called and asked to speak to the owner. I said he wasn't available and he just hung up in my ear. I called the number back to find out it is the 411 Directory. 411 can expect to never get through to the owner.

    I called their office and asked them to stop. We kept getting these auto-calls and then no one would be on the other end. They said they would put us (business) on their DO NOT CALL LIST. They do ask for the number being called.

    I just got a call on my phone from this number and I've had calls from this number before. It's a scam looking for suckers according to research. I didn't answer the calls because I rarely answer numbers that I haven't called. I do however, always research to find out who is calling and they go on my list of do not answer numbers, which I report. Yup! It really isn't an advantage to call my phone unless you're legitimate.

    It's not the yellow pages that we all know. This is a scam They list you online and then phone to tell you that you owe them for the listing. What they are hoping for is to talk to accounting thinking that they might not question as to who in your company asked for the listing. I've had a fight with them for 5 years now

    Don't just come here and whine, send a report to these guys http://www.occq-qcco.com/main.cfm?p=231&l=en&succes=1 it's the Quebec Commercial Certification Office, I'm guessing the local government run version of the BBB. Flood them with complaints and see how long they are listed there!!!!!!

    Get the phone number and keep calling them back.  Don't say anything, just hang up AFTER someone says hello.  Do this over and over and over.......

    This was a company purported to be 411.ca, asking me to verify my company information for our 411 listing.  They were quick to end the call when I said I could not authorize payment.

    This number called my business line.  I do service calls for local residential customers so, when I see an 866 number, I just say "Hello" (no business name nor my own name).  Woman on the other end just said it was a wrong number.  I'm wondering if I had identified it as a business that they were calling if my response would have been the same.

    Did a reverse phone number search at 411.ca, results:We did not find a phone number matching 866-482-7474Suggestions: ?Please make sure that the phone number has been entered correctlyStill having trouble finding the business? It might not be on 411.ca. Add it.Caller identified herself as calling from 411.ca, said she wanted to check our online listing at 411.ca, I said we didn';t have an online listing. I checked 411.ca for our legal business name and the short form usually used. Both times the response was "Hmmm, we don't have any listing for this firm within 100 Km of "Our Town, Sask.".Did a reverse phone number search of our business number that "their" staff member had just called at 411.ca, results: "We did not find a phone number matching 306-123-4567".Methinks this is a scam outfit plishing the 411.ca phone number.
