If they called you and you didn't call them, and they indicate they are from a collections agency should they not identify who they're calling on behalf?
I don't want to give out critical personal info with all the identity theft scams you hear about to someone I didn't contact and don't know.
If they truly are collecting on behalf of a client they should be able to indicate the name of the business they are collecting for. If it's a debt owed to "ABCDEF" company and you've never heard or dealt with "ABCDEF" company, you should recognize if it's a scam or not right away.
If they called you they should have more than just your phone number. Just have them send a letter outlining their request to your address. If it's a scam you'll get nothing, but if it is an actual collection agency there is no reason you should not receive something in the mail.
They will probably just aggressively say you need to verify certain information first, and in cases like this I would just hang up and block that number.

Dumb robotic voice said the wrong name as well as saying I'm in debt with some fake claim number. Have called me consistently for months now. Definitely a scam.

Was called twice in same day, did not answer as I was working and do not have voice mail on my phone.
I called the number at 10 pm at night to see what it was. It was a recording saying they were the Credit bureau of canada.
Yet the number showing is not the same when u look up the credit bureau of canada.
Has anyone else been called by this number ?- 1-866-817-1294
Is this a scam ???

They called using my full name, including middle. I waited on the line as instructed but was disconnected before I reached a human. I called them several times and was disconnected when I became first in the Que. I owe nothing that has gone to or will go to collections. Taxes are current I even received a rebate. This has got to be a scam but I am not sure of the angle since they never actually speak to you or request personal information. This has bee going on for over a year with a call every couple weeks.

I have no idea who they are... But they knew my FULL name and middle initial , but I am well aware of everywhere that I owe money and i have a great credit rating... So I'm not really sure whats going on with this. I left a message and haven't heard back but I'm super sketched out right now.

I just received a call saying that this is credit collections canada and to call them with a file number. I have tried 3 times and no answer. So I guess they don't want me that bad

I got a call from 1-866-817-1294. The caller id just indicated Credit bureau of Canada as the name! I did took the call, but half message was robotic recording, and then half a message was a human speaking. They mentioned some file-number, and then a name of a person they want to reach - which is not even myself, and mentioned some random number to call them back. This seems a random BS. I have seen this number doesn't even belong to Credit Bureau of Canada first of.

Call me with wrong name and when I call back. The guy answered and did not connect me to any real person for anything, simply bothering me for no reason. It is most likely a scam. Do not understand how we can allow this to continue like this.

By law in Ontario they are required to write to you and tell you: whom they are: for whom they are collecting & the amount of the ALLEGED.
Always use ALLEGED. you are never required to admit the debt.

I am now bankrupt and this scum keeps calling me. They are in violation of the Bankruptcy Act but they know & don't give a d**n: there is not a court in this country that will take or allow concrete action against them. You CANNOT ask for or be given punitive damages.

This is a legit 3rd party collections agency and they are using an automated dialer, this is why it sounds like a robot. If they are calling you its for a reason and you should at least find out why.

They are real and not a scam.

To stop the calls just obtain the mailing address of the company and write them a letter indicating you only wish for correspondence in writing (send it with tracking #) If they call you again after this they will be fined.

This number keeps calling my business line and leaving a message that sounds part 'person' and part 'recording'. The message asks for a person who is no way connected with my business or my personal life to contact them.

It's very frustrating as it ties up my business line and I can't get them to stop harassing me for a person I can't give them!

Call from 011 86 681-71294, which "might" mean the originating number is 1-866-817-1294. The caller id just indicated United States as the name! I receive them almost every day. Four or five days ago a rep from the same number asked if I was this person I'd never heard of; I said I'm not them and they said they'd take the name off the file but I still get calls. I took the call yesterday and an automated message said to call 1-866-817-1294 referencing a file number but I couldn't recall the number. The other option was to press 1 to be connected to an agent. They wanted credit card info and confirm my date of birth and phone number. I said I don't truly know who this is so can't give out personal information. I don't know why they a "collection company" would call as I have no outstanding debts. They said in a harsh manner "I'll note you as being uncooperative"! Wtf? I hung up.

I just had this number call me. It was automated at first and it called out some long number really fast (No time to write it down). I got transferred to some guy who explains that I'm being recorded and that he wanted to talk to me (Acting really aggressive). He knew my full name and my number - Obviously.

I have record on my phone as well and I let him know that I was also recording.... Okay, so then he says that he wants me to give him my date of birth. So I replied, "Why should I tell you that" "You should already know since you are calling me".

He gets really angry and say something that he needed it for confirmation. And if I was not going to comply.... Hangup !

They even go so far as have their recorded parts in French and English. I just called them back and they put me through to an answering machine... These people are sketchy. I don't know if they are real or not but they can send me a letter first !!
