New Scammers?

I've been here awhile

Got cold called from "A representative from rogers" From 519-xxx-4488 (Edited by Moderator for safety and security)
They offered some crazy plan for 34.99 and here's the weird part, taxes included.
Was offering to send out a "Galaxy tab a9 plus" whatever that is and upgrade my phone, (I'm happy with what I have Tyvm)
Asked for proof they were from rogers, got an email from "donotreply@rcirogerscommunications.com"
Got this email:

My issue with this got even weirder when they asked for my address, stupidly I gave it to them before hanging up realizing my mistake. 
There's no way this is a real thing yeah?

Hi,

Look I fell for the phishing scam and just realized I got scammed out of a 2 thousand dollar phone. 

 

Everything seemed so legit, they had my information already. The emails came from @rcirogerscommunciation.com (which I know now is fake) They provided me with call back numbers and agent numbers.

 

I am so mad at myself.

 

I made a case with Rogers and cancelled my auto payment. I am going to make a police report

 

Anyone who has been through this... I am going to have to pay for the phone? Can I go through my credit card? Just looking for what is going to happen next.

 

Thank you!

Greetings @User5954! 😊 

 

Yikes! I'm sorry to hear what transpired. With all the scams out there nowadays, one can't be too cautious. I'm glad you were able to connect with us to have a case created and this issue looked into. Was the case created for our Fraud Team to investigate? If so, it takes 10 business days for them to get back to you. 

 

Once our Fraud Team connects with you, they will be able to elaborate on the details of the charges and advise you of the next best steps to be taken.

 

For future reference, I found a super helpful blog written by our very own @RogersYasmine on Protecting Yourself Against Fraud.

 

I hope this helps!
