Caller Type: Debt Collector
Phone Number Report: The 778-328-9992 number is a fraud operation, starting August 10th 2010 they have began calling people again, and they began targeting more people on September 16th. They will not leave a message or voicemail regarding the call due to the fact that it could be used as evidence against them. They will first call a group of numbers using an automated dialer, and once the dialer suspects someone has picked up, they are notified and they get on the line to begin their scam (this is why people are receiving messages of music then someone saying hello). If you waste their time (pick up the phone and put it up to a radio or television), it fools the automated dialer and wastes most of their valuable time for their operation--and if everyone does this, their scam will no longer be profitable.
DO NOT give them any information under any circumstances, and do not answer yes or no to anything. If you do accidentally pick up the phone, your best bet is to waste their time by speaking incoherently or keeping them on the line as long as possible to ultimately lead them into nowhere.
Beware that this company has also began targeting message boards such as this, they will pose as an everyday person and pretend to have been called by this number and try to make you scared by claiming the company ruined their credit or took them to court for not paying, the purpose of this is to ultimately scare you into giving them money, don't fall for it. Lastly, the company will also use tricks to break you down, they will scream at you, make you feel guilty for not paying an imaginary bill, use phrases such as "see you in court". What is happening is the original company (CBV Collections) is attempting to make additional profits by creating an additional branch for scamming people by persuading them to voluntarily pay for imaginary bills under the phrasing of a "business operation".
Call the RCMP, contact your local police, and contact Bell Canada. If you get caught in this mess, make sure you record the phonecalls, especially when they are mysteriously unable to provide you with any details about the imaginary bill, unable to reference the account number and unable to tell you the original billing address.
**Most importantly: Waste their time!!

they will also post with the same name as me after I post this asking to take it down because I made a mistake in my post or some other nonsense, they don't want people to figure out their scam, re-post this message everywhere you can, we can beat them at their own game.
