18886762269 Scam or Suspicious BMO Calls

I keep getting automated calls or robocalls from telephone number 18886762269 where the caller claims to be from Bank of Montreal Business Centre. But, when I called BMO customer service they said do not have a record of the number. I have been dealing with this for months. They continuously leave a voicemail saying there is an issue with my account and to contact BMO. I have accounts with BMO and have spoken to multiple people at my bank about this and they have no idea why I'm receiving these calls, as there are no issues with my accounts. I have blocked the number but continue to get voicemails, it just never ends.

18886762269 Scam or Suspicious BMO Calls

I googled 1-888-676-2269 and found out people online have been experiencing this problem as far back as 2008. There are some who said it is BMO's number and a system error is what is causing them to auto dial customers.

    Just had this happen although when I called BMO with the number on the back of the card the lady said “we just do random checks to make sure everyone is aware of their accounts”

    They also asked me to sign up for the voice verification which I thought was actually the ploy of the first automated call.

    that number is a scam if you get a call from a bank call your bank directly

    Both my spouse and I have been getting calls at least 2x per day for the last month.. they just leave a message saying to call them back regarding an important business matter lol

    I have gotten these calls, today I called the number but was suspicious when they said it was for some who hasn't lived here for a few years, so I called BMO fraud line. They say it's for their credit card dept .

    I received a call from 1-888-676-2268, but because I had previously blocked the number, they were able to leave a message anyway. The robot voice said they were calling from BMO and that there was an issue with my account. I believe it's a scam.

    • April 2, 2022 at 9:57 AM by an anonymous user from: North St James Town, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

      Same here. I have received this call twice so far. But I have BMO account manager. If there was any issue the manager will call me to discuss specifically, not this kind of general warning. What confused me, is that the message didn't ask me to press 1 or anything.

    I've been receiving calls from this number for weeks. Very annoying!I checked with BMO and was told that they have no reason to call me in that way. Please let the ECMP know and ask the police use their technical expertise to catch the callers behind this number.

  • December 30, 2021 at 5:30 PM by an anonymous user from: Laval, Quebec, Canada

    I received their call 2 days in a row -

    1.I DID NOT CALL the 1-666-676-2269 they provided incase if its a scam they would have confirmation that my telephone number is valid in their data base and sell my number to other scammers to call me with the same modus operandi.

    2.Instead I called directly my bank and had them confirm that they did not call me and everything is in order with my account.

    3.I then googled online the number provided and validated that I am not the only to whom this has happened. I proceeded with the advice of many here and blocked the number.

    4.Furthermore, my voicemail does not provide my full name - so the scammers can not connect my number to a real name.

    for me it was not a robot

  • August 26, 2021 at 5:12 PM by an anonymous user from: Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

    I am getting these robocalls. Two nights in a row, exact same time. I do have BMO account but no loans or credit cards. I sent BMO a note about it and requested any information. The call is quick and they don't give you much time to copy down number etc but I am ready for them tonight. How do you block calls?

    • February 16, 2022 at 12:23 AM by an anonymous user from: South Surrey, Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

      I blocked on my cell phone and I no longer hear them call but they can still leave voice messgaes. Very annoying!

  • February 23, 2021 at 8:14 AM by an anonymous user from: Central London, London, Ontario, Canada

    I got calls from this number every 2 days, and there is a lady named Nitten (similar) said my name correctly and ask me call her back regarding my account issues. I block this number, so it come to my voice mail directly. Always calls me around 9:00 am to 11:00am.

    • June 27, 2021 at 3:32 PM by an anonymous user from: Creekside Park, Tomball, Texas, United States

      I have been getting these calls for about a year now, I have also called BMO and there is nothing wrong with my accounts. I have blocked them but still shows up in my callers list. They call me EVERY day, sometimes more than once and at all hours of the day and night

    • March 9, 2021 at 9:12 PM by an anonymous user from: Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, Canada

      I do work for Bmo and this is the collection’s number, it means that your account is past due, if you do not pay and keep ignoring the calls without taking payment arrangements your credit bureau will be affected .

      • February 16, 2022 at 5:12 PM by an anonymous user from: South Surrey, Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

        Not really,I checked with BMO and was told they had no reason to call me at all. But the “BMO” with that number keep calling me everyday.

    I receive calls consistently from this number saying there is something wrong with my account. I received these calls at my work number (which I have never provided to anyone). Actually, almost everyone in my aisle also receives these calls. I have also received them on my cell phone. I have never had a BMO account, I have never been into a BMO. I phoned BMO directly and they assured me this was a fraudulent call and also assured me there is no record of my name or an account set up with BMO. I do not owe anything to anyone. I have always paid my bills on time. I have also reported this number on several occasions.

  • December 24, 2020 at 6:03 AM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, California, United States

    The telephone number 1 888 676 2269 called me today and left a message saying it was from the BMO call center. gave me the # again saying there was something amiss with my account!. I called MY actual bank branch and NOTHING was amiss with my account No late payments NA DA..

    3 days ago the same number called and said they were from Dodge Chrysler.. (happen to have Dodge) wanting me to update all my info and started asking questions... The SAME # AS THE BMO # told them NO and hung up!

  • December 24, 2020 at 6:01 AM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, California, United States

    I missed a call on my cell phone, the message said to call BMO for some vague reason relating to my credit card account. I called BMO (the number on the back of the card, not the number that called me) and was told everything was fine, there were zero issues.

    If you do get a call from this 888 number it is a scam, don't call them back. If you need to contact BMO then call the number that's listed on their website or on the back of your credit/debit card.

  • December 24, 2020 at 6:00 AM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, California, United States

    I believe this is a highjacked number. When you actually call the number, it is a line that goes to BMO debt collection. As a debt collection line, it is normal to not find the number posted on their website since the line is private. HOWEVER if you answer the call, when being called and get a person, the people on the line are scammers trying to get personal information. Our resident who is receiving these calls does have a BMO account but after calling BMO ourselves, have it on official authority that none of her accounts are outstanding and she should NOT be receiving calls from the collections dept.

  • December 24, 2020 at 5:59 AM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, California, United States

    This number calls almost every day Monday to Sunday. Say they are BMO. Never leave the name of the person they want to contact. I or anyone in my household do not have any credit cards, loans, or mortgages with BMO. I never answer when I don't know who is calling.

  • December 24, 2020 at 5:58 AM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, California, United States

    I received a call from this number stating my wife is in arrears on her credit card and they want a $38 payment now. However, we have a receipt for a $500 payment just a week ago. Not in arrears, never been in arrears. I think it's time to switch to CIBC or at least some other financial institution. I've had just about enough of crooked BMO collections agents that can barely speak English calling and harassing me when I and my wife always make our payments on time.

  • December 24, 2020 at 5:58 AM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    It's hilarious this scam and thread have been going for 13 yrs. Just started getting calls saying to call this number. Called my number on my BMO card. The service representative says they have not been calling. Total scam. Can't wait for the next call. Not gonna be pretty.

  • December 24, 2020 at 5:56 AM by an anonymous user from: Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, California, United States

    The number may or may not be a BMO phone number but since scammers frequently spoof legitimate phone numbers, there's no guarantee all calls from it are BMO.

  • December 24, 2020 at 5:54 AM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    MO is calling me every day

    BMO has been calling me almost every day for a month or more.

    It's an automated message telling me to call their account management, regarding issues with my account.

    I do not have a BMO account, never had a BMO account in my life.

    The phone number for me to call is 1-888-676-2269, which comes up on their website so it seems legit

    When I called to ask them to stop calling me, they asked me for my personal information, including my DOB.

    When I refused to give it to them as I have no relationship with BMO, they said there is nothing they can do until they verify my identity...
