Hello! We have been receiving calls from a person named Joise, using this number (416) 628-6739. She claims to be associated with Rogers, when I asked her what I had on my account she stated incorrect items. Which set of some red flags for myself. Now She keeps calling, and even though I tell her I’m at work, she gets irritated and hung up on me. I need to know is this number associated with Rogers?
Being super vigilant with potential vishing (short for “voice phishing”) attempts is the best thing to do. Scammers try to gather your personal or financial information over the phone. Usually, they make calls to offer you fake rate plans and promise incentives if you complete surveys or if you respond to their requests to “confirm” your account by providing sensitive information like PINs, passwords, or account numbers.
What department did Joise say she was from? I might recommend you to block that particular number to prevent that this person contacts you again.
What should I do if I’ve received a suspicious phone call from Rogers?
Do NOT provide personal information if the caller sounds suspicious. If possible, record the phone number that appeared on your call display, then contact Rogers and report the incident. We will be able to determine if the call was legitimate.
This evening I received a call from V21322324200021 753-5681. The person said they were Rogers and could give me a deal on my home phone, cable and internet. When I told him I already have all my services with Rogers, he hung up. I made the assumption it was a scam.
The same thing happened again this evening. I fairly sure it is a scam they were offering me internet, cable and home phone for $99 a month for a year.
Somehow I seriously doubt. I'm perfectly happy with my services and believe me they don't come anywhere near $99 a month for all those services. This time the number was V21423380700021 519-753-1544 they are ghosting local numbers to work this scam.
