Calls from this number: 604-558-0501

Has anyone had calls from this number: 604-558-0501

They call me multiple times and when I call back, it goes straight to their voice mail. Not sure how to deal with this since my phone service doesn't have a number block feature.

It's somebody from CDC :P

I've gotten calls like that though. Pick up and hang up...

It seems they have two phone numbers. I called 604 558 0502 to let them know that I want my number off their calling list. Hopefully it works and I don't get any more annoying calls from them.

It would be nice if we had a "Red Flag phone number list" thread. I know this isn't really a red flag number, but it would be nice to have one.

The DNCL works - sometimes...at least once a month I get the famous automated computer message "Congratulations, you have been selected for an Air Miles Reward - press 1 to speak to a representative..." It has nothing to do with Air Miles - it's a scam. Report the number, it shuts down, and they come back with a new one. So now I just resort to my own way of dealing with them. I press 1, then turn the music up really loud until they hang up. Yeah, I know, not solving anything - but It makes me feel good! :lol:

I sometimes play along. I act really panicked and ask if it is dangerous. Then I ask what can I do and of course they want me to log on to a website and I tell them wait a minute i have to turn on my computer... I can sometimes keep them hanging on 15 minutes or more as i feed them fake updates of boot problems my computer seems to be experiencing and I thank them for alerting me and ask if this is the sort of result.

Then once I claim to have the computer booted up I continually mangle their instructions.

Finally after stringing it out for as long as possible I then ask if it makes difference as I am using a Mac.

One time I even got to go through he whole performance a second time when I told them that my wife used a Windows and maybe that was the problem computer.

Good times.

If you know it is an automated number dialer, pick up and immediately press the "#" key repeatedly .. apparently it scrambles their auto dialer and renders it useless for awhile .. it feels good too .. :rolleyes:

That is hilarious. Its too bad they have all the time in the world to annoy people with their scams and we value our time. Sometimes it does make for good entertainment.
