Hey blah2016, guess what? even mobile customers from other mobile carriers like telus, bell, etc, get those fake rogers Chinese calls.
Does Rogers have the means to make their NON Clients lives significantly better too?
How in the world can they stop me from getting those calls when i'm not even a customer of their mobile cellular service?
I am a customer of another one of their service so that is why i'm on here but still, you get my point?
Everyone gets those calls. they originate from out side of Canada, Contrary to what you may believe or think, they're very tricky to block and stop these people.
My apologies for not realising that a resident expert on this forum wasn't a Rogers mobile customer. And yes, all carriers have the issue.
Neither of these points, however, change the fact that the technology to block the spam calls is available. It's already in use in the US. I provided a pretty naive algorithm (https://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/Scam-Phishing-Fraud-Discussions/Chinese-mandarin-scam-calls/m-...) that would probably capture the lion's share of spam (I run a popular website and we deal with spammers ourselves so I'm speaking for at least a position of experience in what we've done successfully)
I cannot abide the attitude of "sorry this upsets you but it's not our fault". And my comment isn't only about Rogers, it's about all carriers.
It's not an unsolvable problem. Not even close.
Just as an FYI, as discussed in post 17 of this thread, Stir/Shaken will become active by the end of this year, if not earlier. This should reduce the number of spam/scam calls significantly. Link below:
The reason I'm not sure of the date this will be implemented by Rogers is because I'm not sure if they'll meet the September 30th 2020 date "expected" in the implementation recommendations of the link above.
I keep getting calls from rogers...when I answer I get an auto message in Chinese. Does anyone else get these and know what they are?
Hey, just a notice, the lack of effort rogers is doing compared to other companies to stop spam calls is going to back fire. I'm now getting multiple calls from a obviously fake rogers wireless "Chinese language devision" looking to collect payments.
It would be great if rogers dealt with this issue or at the very least offered free services like the other big companies that force callers to type in a few numbers before being connect.
