Best Buy Fideorogers Department Calling with Discount

NeoIIGeo
I've been around

I have been getting calls from 604-799-1787 claiming to give further discounts on Rogers mobile phone service because many Rogers account holders are leaving due to high cost. The discounts will only show on the Rogers bill once you've signed up for the offer.

They have last 4 digits of the account and are asking for the following;

1. Email address

2. Spelling of you full name

3. Billing address

4. Last bill amount you've paid.

I contacted Rogers and they don't have such plans as described. They gave 778-775-1782 to verify the source of the caller. Contacted the number and seems to be going to someone's personal phone number.

Apparently, this guy was calling from Best Buy Ontario and the caller ID shows BC phone number. When I challenged him on this, he said he can call from Ontario phone number and something about use of multiline phone number and is legit.

The offer sounds too much of a good deal but sounds real fishy.
