Smishing message from "ROGERS"

Barncat
I've Been Here Awhile

Just recieved a text message this morning "supposedly from Rogers", which reads: Dear Rogers customer-We detected an unauthorized activity on your online account. To avoid suspension, use http://rogerss.cf to restore access. Note the rogerss.....The fake link takes you to a nice looking "ROGERS" log-on page, but the links on the page don't work! The only thing that works is the username and password fields. BEWARE......Nice try.......coming from 1-647-620-3748.

Re: Smishing message from "ROGERS"

I got the exact same message, from the same number 1-647-620-3748 at 11:30am today. tip off was the link address of rogerss.cf so never clicked on the link, but will assume the original poster here was right on what it leads to.

Just received a text from 12899805955 with the message;

"Dear Rogers customers, due to service interruptions, you get refunded. Please follow the link to claim your money: bonsecu.com"

I just thought that I would make others aware. It wasn't hard to figure out that it was a fake message.

Re: Smishing message from "ROGERS"

suspicious text msg received

 

I received a text msg yersterday from Rogers. The message reads as follows. 

Rogers finance has sent you an e-transfer due to a minor system glitch. Sorry for the inconvenience. Follow link to claim your transfer @ dorlyg.com

I found this suspicious so I took the time to google the Phone # it came from. 1-289-980-8310 and it comes up as an AFFILIATE of ROGERS along with several other #"s (100 or more)

I was still suspicious, so I called Rogers to see if they would have sent that. Sure enough, they did not. Because the msg comes in as a Rogers Msg, and the phone # shows Rogers Affiliate, it would be so easy for unsuspecting customers to actually click on this link and put in personal information. Please investigate and make your customers aware that this is not an actual text from Rogers.

I got this message today. Funny because I just switched from Rogers to Koodoo last month. I still have two lines with rogers though.

I received a TXT message today telling me I had overpaid my phone bill, to receive my credit I was to click on an attached link. The call came from a Rogers Cell phone subscriber in Abbotsford BC, 1-604-615-2637. Obviously this is a scam so do not click on the link.

The text bubble they refer to is the actual bubble with the text your want to forward. Give it a try for practice. Smiley Wink

Certainly a scam. Not the URL is not Rogers but a website in Brazil. If you click one of the financial institutions "linked", they will steal your information and password.  Rogers does not send such messages.  It's a dead give-away when the message is illiterate, such as putting the $ sign after the amount. (Mods, the URL in the above message should be disabled.)

Re: Smishing message from "ROGERS"

Phone text scam

 

Got a text  from 'Rogers Communications' (343)989-0632 forwarding a money transfer Refund with a wireless receipt. Asking to deposit in the bank  account by logging in to you account from phone .

 

Looks like a scam as I am not expecting any refund from Rogers.

Re: Smishing message from "ROGERS"

I recieved this at 12:46am on wednesday april 18/2018 in which I will paste the exact text and link. I have not tried to click the link and I dont want to, but I have a big feeling its fake. Considering the fact that I just paid my phone bill online yesterday using my visa debit card and I did have suffcient funds. I also do not know why Rogers would try to return exactly what I owe them lol. I ask Rogers to take a look into this please.


*COPY & PASTE TEXT MESSAGE*

Dear Rogers Client, we have sent you a Refund from last payment [case:769]. Please claim your funds here: http://rrd.me/cW9uD
