Telemarketing call?

Hi,

I've been receiving calls daily from the same number 1-844-277-6920. Sometimes 2-3 times a day for a week straight! When I answer, the caller hangs up. When I don't answer they leave voicemail where someone says hello? Then hangs up after. I have seen some posts saying this number is a scam pretending to be "Fido"? Is it Fido? How do I get it to stop?

Hey @A_Tang

 

Welcome to the Community! 

That number is our telemarketing team! Once you answer the call, you are redirected to a live rep!

If it triggers your voicemail, the automated system will kick-in and you might hear an incomplete message.

Welcome to the community @kimberlyhou! Smiley

 

The number is indeed from us. It's odd the call disconnects afterwards however. If it happens again, let us know so we can send you a PM and see what's going on.

This is happening to me too. They either leave a "hello" voice message or leave no voice message at all.

My son has been getting these calls several times a week on his prepaid Fido cell. If he answers, is he charged for the incoming voice minutes?

Hello Wgm777,

 

  Yes, the calls will likely count as airtime for both prepaid and postpaid customers, if answered. In addition, listening to any voicemail messages left will also count as airtime for both.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: Telemarketing call?

How do I get FIDO telemarketing to STOP calling me?   Or to get airtime credit for them wasting both my time and my air time?

We can definitely remove you from our marketing list. This is something that needs to be taken care of through customer service. 

 

There are lot of ways to get in touch with customer service. Check them out here

 

Or, if you would prefer we send you a PM here, let us know and we'll shoot one over your way. Smiley
