I received a phone call repeatedly from 1-877-216-5027 saying it was Royal Bank with an important message for my about my banking. It asked for me by name and then asked for my birthday or Access ID. I never spoke with a human, just an automated machine. I hung up, and called RBC from a number I had on my banking card. There was nothing urgent that RBC was calling me about. I'm assuming it is a fraud call but am not positive.

I am getting repeated taped phone calls in both English and French from 1-877-216-5027 saying they are the Royal Bank and they are calling me about a personal banking issue (they specifically use my name). Then they start asking me to press numbers to confirm personal information (postal code, date of birth). I did not confirm anything and they just keep calling back. Obviously Royal Bank would never do this...so how do we stop these kinds of calls???

I just spoke with a representative of RBC by calling their collections department's number (1-866-893-3295) which was supplied by an operator contacted through the main number (1-800-769-2511) listed on their site. Both were able to confirm that it is a collections number. The person in collections was regrettably rather dull-witted and unable to see why (1) having the call prompt clients for personal information without an option to talk with an operator and (2) having their number listed as a phishing scam all over the internet are bad things. I did manage to get transferred with someone at customer care who at least made note of the situation.

To all those who are being contacted, yes it is laughably incompetent on the part of the Royal Bank to model their contact with clients in such a way that it seems so transparently like a fishing scam, but it is just their collections department trying to give you a courtesy call. (In my case, they were letting me know that, in switching Visa cards, I had forgotten to transfer funds to my old Visa to cover a cell phone bill that arrived in the middle of the card switch.)

My advice is not to take my word, or the word of anyone else on an internet forum for this (after all, any scammer could post here anonymously, claiming that the number is legit), but to look up their contact number on Google and get back to them. Make sure to provide them feedback and let them know that modeling their client interaction on phishing and subsequently getting their collections number listed all over the internet as a scam is probably a bad idea.

I started getting calls yesterday (Nov 4/2013) and more today... Same thing... Saying from Royal Bank with "important message regarding banking" confirming my Name and press 1... Followed by asking for personal info... Seems REALLY sketchy so I hung up followed by repeated calls... I called RBC at their Royal 1-1 number and they confirmed it was an RBC Robo-Caller and the "important messages" were in regards to product & service offers. I was really annoyed and demanded that this "feature" as they call it be turned off. They said they did. We'll see if the telemarketing continues. VERY DISSAPOINTED IN RBC SALES TACTICS right now. Booooo.

Caller wants information and says "Important Message from RBC". It is computer operated so I hang up but this is constant and must stop.

Harrassment is definitely the name for these people, it is definitely not the Royal Bank of Canada.

When I reluctantly answered the call it was a Robo caller on the other end. (Don't worry I wasn't going to give them any additional info they may already have on me!) The robo caller identified themselves as Royal Bank of Canada and asked for me by name (I am indeed a customer) but when I pressed any key to talk to a live person per instruction, it was dead silence. I thought I should press again but this only ended the call. I treated this as a serious fraudulent call because they know my name, phone number and maybe a whole lot of other banking info! After reading this blog, I was confused and even more alarmed. Went to my account online and discovered my account has bounced three auto payment charges since Sept 23, four weeks ago!! NOT all robo calls are bad, just wish Royal Bank had put together a better alert system.

It is actually Royal Bank. They don't have the man power to call everyone for different issues, so they use this automated system to get in touch with their clients. Sometimes it is because your bank account is over drawn (when you don't have overdraft), sometimes it is because you have an old account that is about to be closed off, and you may get a charge for doing so. Best thing to do is answer the call or call them back. You never know what the issue may be. It is NOT fraud or phishing. I know this because I called them back several months ago to find out what it was about (as I was also sceptical). It is legitimate.

claimed to be Royal Bank and automated message prompted personal information out of me using my name...I did hung up and called my bank (Which is Royal Bank) and the person I spoke to checked my account and said there was nothing urgent that anyone would need to call me about. Definitely scam - do not give out information. Hang up - call your bank to let them know this happened.

WE RECEIVED A CALL THIS MORNING, BUT MANAGED TO GET MY HUSBAND TO HANG UP ON THEM.. IT SAID IT WAS TO DO WITH MY ROYAL BANK ACCOUNT. IF I HADN`T BEEN HERE IT COULD HAVE BEEN DISASTOROUS AS MY HUSBAND HAS ALZHEIMERS AND LIKELY WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM THE INFORMATION THEY WANTED,. CAN YOU NOT STOP THESE PEOPLE.. OTHERWISE MY ACCOUNT AT RB. WILL BE SHUT DOWN PERMANENTLY. THANK YOU.

I've been getting these calls too.
Not sure if RBC has a security flaw, but at least some information seems to be linked to them...
Bought pro call blocker from amazon $60 CDN.
Poor instructions, but seems to work (may be blocking answering machine though).
From what I've read, this little device works better on panasonic LAN phones, like thru Shaw. (not DSL!!)
If you can tolerate poorly scripted instructions more than these irritating phone calls, this may be an option.

I get this call too. I thought it was strange that the message still played while my answering machine was still playing my greeting, then hung up. As far as I can tell, if it's an urgent message from RBC, they will call me in person.
