After reading several blogs on various websites, the suspicious numbers use variations of:
855 - 560 - 14xx
Be vigalent and never give personal information out to anyone. If you are not sure, then contact your bank through a known number and check.to see if the number is legitimate. If you talk to a live person on the other end then try to get as much information as possible such as full name (get them to spell it out), a return contact number, employee number, where they are calling from (city, province/state, country, street address, email information, etc.) Tell them you will call back, then check with your bank. If information does not match up, contact the authorities.
SCAM's come in all types, check out what happened with yahoo when the email system got hacked.
I have pursued this further.
I contacted Telus, my service provider. They said there is nothing they can do to prevent incoming calls.
The only way to charge the "Fraudster" is if the "SCAMMER" lives in Canada. Most often the calls are generated from overseas and there is no way to charge and prosecute.
Telus suggested searching "Phonebusters RCMP" on google which brings you to the government website as posted in my previous message. I have already sent a message to this department.
After reading posts on this and other forums, the SCAM is to badger people into paying a "False Debt". Some people have paid this "False Debt"
This number has called me three times within a 3 hour time period on my cell phone and my home phone! I know they are not RBC because I never gave them my cell phone number. Calling me that many times is harassment plain and simply!
