The Smithers RCMP are cautioning the public after receiving numerous complaints of suspicious phone calls.

In the calls the caller explains that they are from a company doing a survey and the survey asks many personal questions. Some of the questions include whether you work, how much money you make and if your wife or husband works, among others.

The phone calls are persistent and often are made in the evenings. The calls persist usually until they are answered.

The RCMP say to be wary about giving out personal information over the phone to unknown callers.
