I've been receiving calls everyday from this number.
So, I wrote to BMO to make sure it's not a scam.
This is the answer I got from an Advisor, Online Banking, BMO Bank of Montreal:
"Thank you for contacting BMO Bank of Montreal regarding received calls.
I confirm that the calls you have received from SinglePoint from us are legitimate.
Largely due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, our Customer Contact Center has seen an increase in the volume of calls to the accounts of custome
They called 3-4 days in a row, left messages saying they were BMO, gave me a phone number to call and a reference number. I answered one of the calls, French accent guy asking for my birthdate, I laughed, told me to call number on my card. I did, they didn't know the number he called from, but couldn't say if it was them or a fraudster. The potential fraudster sounded about as professional as the boneheads at BMO, so who knows?

After a simple verification of your date of birth, We discussed the account sent to us BY BMO DIRECTLY. We do not collect payments, simply provide courtesy calls o
