New Phishing Scam

I just received two identical emails which read as follows:

 

Dear Customer,

We recently wrote to inform you that your last payment was declined. This is your second notice. We were unable to process your payment for your Rogers Service.

You must update your billing information immediately in order to avoid any interruption to your services.

You can update your billing information online simply by clicking the link below: 
--> URL Edited


Here you can update contact information, view your billing statements, update / change your payment method and change your price plan anytime.         Date: August 19, 2013

 

--> URL Edited

--> URL Edited

 

If someone isn't paying attention and click on the link, the site it takes you to looks pretty much identical to the Rogers site except the ULR is incorrect.

 

I hope you are able to look into this and shut these guys down.

 

Thanks

Re: New Phishing Scam

It's just normal internet scam stuff. I get them all the time, although haven't seen one supposedly from Rogers yet. Most of these scams steal your user name and password if you're dumb enough to log in. Also, lots of them infect your PC with spyware, malware, and that kind of thing. It pays to be very careful, especially when receiving one like you posted. As you said, they can be very authentic looking. Unfortunately, it's easy to copy and paste company logos off the internet and create stuff like this.

Re: New Phishing Scam

@batejd can you delete the links from that post please.  Replace them with the text contents only, so that the link does not exist.  I'd rather not see active links to a Russian hackers site left on the forum.  

 

Something like this would suffice:   MyRogers Bill Page (link has been deleted)

 

Here's the whois for the webrogers.site that all of those links point to:
