I received a text that says i received a refund from rogers. Is this is a scam? it looks legit. its from rogers support mobile.com. Hesitating to open it.
Welcome to Rogers Community Forums! 😀
You have posted your query in the right thread. If it sounds like a scam, then most likely it is. We don't send refund via text message; it would get directly adjusted on your bill.
Please forward the suspected SPAM message to 7726 (SPAM), and they will be audited and then blocked from the Rogers network as a whole.
Thanks for your contribution and for your help in keeping the community a pleasant place to be.
I received a text today from that claimed that Rogers overcharged me last month and they are sending me a refund which I have to claim through online banking. Is this legit or a scam?
@Acurt048 : This is a scam. Rogers would simply credit your account. If you look at this scam forum (to which your post may have been moved) you'll see other similar posts/threads.
Please forward the text to Rogers at 7726 (spam). This way they may be able to prevent future scams from this source.
money return text from "rogers" (1-705-418-1510)
i received a text message from this number 1-705-418-1510 saying "(my rogers) you've got a money return this month! no payment required to see below (malicious link removed - RogersMoin)
is this legitimate?
Scam in the name of Rogers. "Money refunded by Rogers because of overcharge".
I have received today, October 7, 2019, three messages, from the phone number +1 (819) 471-7328, during an interval of about 10 minutes, all of them reading:
"Rogers#31596: Because of the overcharge made on your past bills, $63.53 has been refunded to you. Please claim it on bill286.online
The other two message are identical except they start with different numbers, namely: Rogers#35086 and Rogers#310886.
This is the precise time of each message:
10/07/2019 19:16 $0.30 Incoming SMS
10/07/2019 19:09 $0.30 Incoming SMS
10/07/2019 19:06 $0.30 Incoming SMS
Please block this number because it drains my "Pay as you go" card. The messages already cost me $0.9 and I am afraid they will keep coming.

@bogdanlazar : Please forward the message to 7726 (SPAM). You will then receive a response from Rogers saying that they will take care of it.
The next time you have a need to talk to PAYGo customer service, advise them of the spam calls and they will provide you with a credit. For $1 it's usually not worth your time to call in, but if you're talking to them about something else, it's worthwhile mentioning and getting the credit.
I reported the scam to 7726 and I received an automatic confirmation that they would take care of it. I have not received any more messages after the three I talked about in my previous post.
I have another question:
Sometimes I receive calls from Unknown. No phone number is displayed. Some of these calls do not come from spammers. In September 2019, Rogers sent me an SMS telling that, starting with the month of November, they would implement the Universal Call Blocking.
Will such a call, displayed as coming from "Unknown", be blocked?
