Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

Thanks for the solution, it worked!

There was a french email address..............Netflix removed the account and blocked it. I also changed passwords etc. on both  Netflix and Rogers accounts.

I logged into Rogers just now and all is good..........hopefully this doesn't happen again and Rogers make some drastic changes to their system to rid us of this ridiculousness!!

I appreciate it is easy to add a service online but there has to be better authentication!

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

I am glad it has been fixed for now, but when will it happen again?? How did it happen in the first place is more the question?

Rogers MUST implement a 2 factor authorization to approve adding a new 'service' to our accounts!

In today's technological world, it is insane that many people have had to go through this and spent lots of time getting it sorted!!

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

Like everybody else on this thread, we were also charged and contacted Netflix and so on. Our chat with Rogers was identical to what everyone else experienced. It sounds like Rogers got hacked and is using the wear the customer down method hoping we will all just get fed up and go away. Moderators on this forum keep suggesting to contact Netflix and I suspect Netflix is getting tired of hearing from Rogers customers. We're simply going to close our account with Rogers to stop the charges. There is too much competition in the market to have to tolerate this and I don't want to waste anymore of my precious times. There are too many flowers to smell.

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

Exactly what I did. Leave. Told Rogers in October 2019 that they had a problem. January 2021 and still going on. Total incompetence.

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

WOW. Luckily I caught my January 6, 2021 charge Yesterday. I googled the # that showed up on my bill and was immediately taken to this thread. I did not read through it as I figured I could speak to Rogers. Like everyone else I was directed to Netflix who had no record of me having an account at all nor connected to Togers. I called back Rogers and after speaking to someone for an hour I finally asked to talk to a Supervisor. The supervisor was very helpful and offered to escalate to the back end office once she failed to locate any account as well. It wasn't until I actually sifted through these messages did I try your advice. I was logged into my sister's and had thought it was actually me all along until I saw where you said to LOG OUT if I am logged into an account. Once I did that an email address netfliv13c4 @ baybabes.com showed up. 

 

I called Netflix right away and they were able to disable the account (it won't cut off for them until the next billing cycle) but action has been taken. I will be calling Rogers in the Morning and letting them know I had to do research to get THEIR job done. 

 

Thank you so much agai! To anyone reading this, please follow this user's advice.

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

This method worked - was a long process on the phone and despite these many cases, Rogers was not aware of the problem/solution and the Netflix tech had only heard of 3 in the last six months. 

 

Ended up creating a fraud case which is in progress (Rogers).  Netflix was very helpful as long as you can provide the service code.  To view that, follow the steps described in the solution but make sure you are logged out of your actual Netflix when you click the  "Let's Go" in your MyRogers - you may have to follow the link twice to access the page w/ the fake email used + service code.

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

I was able to find the culprit's email address using the instructions which I used to cancel the Netflix subscription. Do not do it from a PC or device with a Netflix account. Unlike Rogers, Netflix support was responsive with the account being cancelled without hesitation. We know we are going to have to eat the $9.99 that Rogers refused to credit. As I told Rogers support, if they didn't take action I was going to switch providers after 25 years (no exaggeration). Rogers did not take me seriously. Today we switched to another provider. I suspect Rogers is unwilling to admit the weakness in their security protocols as it would cost them a small fortune.  To hack my account they would have had to figure out both my user ID and password. To all the users who got scammed that Rogers says was their fault - switch providers. As Canadian consumers it is our responsibility to demand the highest quality from our mobile service providers. After all, we pay a premium in Canada for it so we should have premium service. I don't know if my story ends here, my wife and I are considering taking this injustice even further.

Re: Unauthorized Netflix Charges on my Rogers Bill

I had the same issue. $18.99 charged to my account. Having to go back and forth between Rogers and Netflix to clear it up. And to find some random email attached to my Rogers account and charging me for Netflix. How did this person access my account . Has my privacy been breached? The hours and stress to get this cleared up!! I am switching providers as well.
