unwanted phone calls every day

I am getting phone calls every day from phone numbers i do not know. This month alone i have received over 30 calls from these numbers listed below!

 

1-800-544-9568

(edited for security purposes)

 

is anyone else getting these calls, and what is rogers doing about them!? Until December i have never received calls from any unknown numbers. Just wondering what other people are doing to stop these calls?

Re: unwanted phone calls every day

I also get various unsolicited calls.  Most I have been able to trace to Bell Mobility and associates.  They promise not to call again but still do.  I am thinking about a serious letter to the pres when I find an address.  frmcdo

Re: unwanted phone calls every day

cool. so you are forced to pay 5 dollars per month  in order to stop unsolicited calls from harassing you and using your daytime minutes and voicemail.  sounds fair.

Re: unwanted phone calls every day

I have  been getting unsolicited calls on my cell phone as well. From unkown telemarketers. I have no idea how they get my number, but it is now costing me daytime minutes and voicemail charges. Doesn't seem like there is any reasonable way to stop it. Unless you want to pay 5 dollars a month to manage a list of numbers you want blocked. Pretty ridiculous.

Re: unwanted phone calls every day

Hi all,

 

Telling the telemarketers to remove you from their call list will do the trick while simply hanging up will not. I used to just get fed up and hang up but now that I have started telling them to remove me off their list, most calls have stopped.

 

Something else to check out is the National Do Not Call list implemented for these specific reasons:

https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/index-eng

 

If you sign up to that, no more telemarketing calls. (From my understanding all telemarketers have to check this list and cannot call any numbers on that list).
