Hey, I know Rogers had a 100 visa gift card deal going on with my s8 preorder and I called yesterday about it and the guy on the phone said they haven't started sending them out yet but I got a message today but I can't tell if it's a scam link or not. Can anyone confirm?
The number is 905 866 9610 and the message reads
Rogers Solutions Refund! Collect your money at: ***LINK REMOVED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES***
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for your post & welcome to the Rogers Community!

Good afternoon and welcome to the Community @AngelaPF,
Spam messages have become quite a pain these days. Please report spam texts to Rogers by forwarding them to 7726. It’s quick and easy, and it helps us in keeping the network free from malicious messages.

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.
@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.
This is the content of the site bill286.online:

@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?
...Universal Call Blocking.... Will such a call, displayed as coming from "Unknown", be blocked?
I don't believe so. Here's the thread on that topic. It relates to numbers that don't meet the NA standard.
block incoming calls that contain telephone numbers that do not comply with North American or International numbering plans e.g. 00000.
Today, October 8, 2019, I got a call from the number +1 (226) 894-4929 and a robot (a woman voice speaking english) told me that the call is from the federal department of justice, I believe, and ignoring the call is a serious crime. I ended the call.
This is again a scam but how can I report it because the number 7726 is just for SMS spam, not calls.
In my Rogers account, at View Call/Transaction History, the call is displayed without a number, like this:
10/08/2019 14:19 $0.50 Incoming Call
The number +1 (226) 894-4929 I can see only on the screen of my mobile phone.
