Why can't Rogers have a section to alert their clients to SCAMS? Everyone, especially the elderly are not Tech savvy. We received this one today.

is this a scam?
We notice your email has not been confirmed for the new upgrade .
I would consider that to be a scam, unless you had taken some action on a web site that you use which would end up with an email confirmation. You would or should know that an email would be inbound to confirm your email entry or email change.
If you hover your mouse over the link in the message, you should see an email address displayed near the mouse or perhaps on the bottom of the monitor. That should allow you to see the address in order to confirm its legitimacy, or not. You can also right click .... copy on the link and then paste it into something like notepad to have a closer look at it. Scam addresses can look very close to the real site address, so you have to be very careful when you do this. You don't want to paste that into a web browser address bar and end up on the site, which could load malware onto your pc/laptop.
When in doubt, close the message and delete it. Any reputable company that you might deal with should have password recovery procedures that you can use to regain entry into your account, should that need arise.
thanks, thought it strange it only gave us 24 hours with no heads up of anykind 😞
with what we pay for the Rogers service its a crying shame they do not have a SCAM alert section for sure 😞

Welcome to our Rogers Community Forums and kudos on your very first post with us! 😊 I hope you're staying safe and sound.
Many thanks for bringing this to our attention. This would be concerning to me as well. It's imperative to be aware of email scams! Just a friendly reminder to never click on any questionable links, nor should you respond with any personal details. If you can, please take a screenshot of the email including the email headers, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org titled "Suspicious Email Received" we can investigate this further.
