FidoRogers Calls

In the last few weeks I've received at least half a dozen calls from CallerID "FidoRogers"  Phone number 1-833-xxx-8254.  I have not bothered answering, since I'm not interested in Fido. 

 

I know that any name and number can be spoofed, but I was just wondering if @CommunityHelps knows if this is  probably legit or probably scam. 

 

I put the number into a search engine and it came up pretty empty, indicating that a lot of people have not reported it as spam/scam.

 

Since they don't leave a Voicemail, if it calls again, I'll probably just add it to my call block as I do for "repeat offenders."

I was getting calls from FidoRogers as well.  I reported them to @CommunityHelps by Private Message and was told that this was NOT a Rogers-owned number.

I've also received calls from this number 7 times since January 22, and 2 of those times they were automatically blocked by my phone.

Called again today. Added them to my call block list on my Panasonic cordless home phone.

Lots of scam calls these days, so take things with a grain of rice and be extra cautious

Called again today and the call was blocked. I wonder how many times they'll try.  I believe it's now close to 10 times in about 3 weeks.

I've been receiving calls from 1-833-447-4853 caller id FIDOROGERS. No message left on vm. Can someone confirm whether or not this is a legit Rogers number?

@Jaktac : It looks like your post was moved to this existing thread where we surmised that it's a scam.  The number may be different, but they can spoof any number they want.

Re: FidoRogers Calls

I left Rogers last week after contacting loyalty department to see if they could match deal I was able to get with another provider. They could not come close so I left Rogers. A few days after both my phones were getting calls from Fidorogers 8334479898. They said they seen we left so wanted to get our business back I said no not interested. They kept calling my husbands phone and finally I talked to a guy that sounded real legit. Said he seen I had been with Roger’s for 28 years offered me a great deal on plans and upgrading my phone. Luckily I said I would have to talk to my husband and if he could call me the next day. I called the number and left message for them to call me back. Then googled the number and seen it could be a scam. They are believable so beware folks I just about got sucked in. Wondering how they knew I left though.

Have been getting calls twice daily from FIDOROGERS, 833-447-4853 on my cell.   No voicemails are ever left, and when I call back, does not ring and obviously no answer.  If you wait to see if it does ring, it eventually advises user is busy, and to go to a stronger WiFi as some countries don't have a strong signal - or something along those lines.  Are they going to get an earful if they call back again.

How about 1-833-447-4853 number claiming to be FidoRogers? 
I’ve been getting quite a few calls from that number. When I try to google it I am unable to find any Rogers reference.

@JL52 : Your post may have been moved to this existing thread. As discussed in this thread, any phone number and name can be spoofed, so it's very likely it's a scam. The number you mention was discussed recently in this thread and likely to be a scam.
