I considered the text message that I received a potential form of spoofing or phishing.
The wording would be typical of a scammer and the fact that the Chat Line could not tell me if it was legitimate or not was rather disappointing. A seach for the 4 digit text number didn't produce anything either.
Some people may not question these types of messages especially when they have an embedded link oin them like this message did. When "roge.rs" is used in the link it raised a red flag because the use of "Roge.rs" is not explained anywhere. Emails and texts such as this can be confusing to the receiver of the message or email. Can Rogers not provide Security Information on their website about receiving suspicious emails and messages from Rogers? A seach of the site produces nothing useful or informative.
I did receive the info below via the Community Forum for a suspicious email but as a Rogers "policy" shouldn't it be more visible?
To protect yourself against potential scams:
Your answer sounds like a bunch of RS. You go through a service that uses a foreign domain to save 3 digits in your legitamate domain name? This doesn't ring true! More like a story to hide outsourcing jobs. If what you say is true, you are risking being seen as sending Canadian jobs over seas to make a buck. A bad idea, if you like Canadian customers.
I Bing-searched this, and ended up here. They said they run their texts through a service that shortens their domain name to help us. All that confusion, and what looks like a foriegn domain, to save 3 digits? I don't believe it. They appear to be outsourcing jobs, internationally. I might have to block this, it is unsolicited ads at best.
Thanks for the heads up. They told me they used a service to shorten their domain name. All that to save 3 digits?
