I keep getting calls from the US claiming it is Koodo Mobile. It is very annoying as I think they are a SCAM. Why are they calling me from the US??

What's the phone #? If it's 1-866-995-6636 it's not a scam and it's definitely Koodo but the # will come back as being routed from the U.S for some reason. You should call them and find out what's going on.

Koodo wouldn't call from the US. What is it that they want you to do?

855-325-6636. Don't know what they want. It says from the US so I don't answer it.

Hi there, this number is legit and is from our Payment Management department. You should definitely give us a call to sort it out! Thank you.

Why don't they just send people a text message? I wouldn't pick up that number either.

They start by sending text messages. They don't start calling until you've ignored the text for at least a week.

A Google search reveals that a lot of people receive calls from this number (claiming to be Koodo) but have never had an account with Koodo. Perhaps it really is Koodo's collection department calling stale numbers from Equifax or TransUnion credit files trying to collect. Previously used phone numbers are released for reuse much sooner than they used to be, the credit files rarely can keep up.
