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.
This is again a scam but how can I report it.
Reporting Scam Calls:
Received a text today about Rogers direct depositing 75 dollars into my account as a refund to my billing. When zi clicked on the link, it asked for answers to my security qurstions and answers for my online banking.
Just thought I'd share to let people know it's a scam. The link looks legit especially when it redirects to the direct deposit page but then after that it would ask for security questions and answers to your online bank account.
Hope rogers can look into this.
Thanks for using the Rogers Community Forums to ask your question and congrats on your first post! 😀
Just to clarify, did you initiate a text message conversation using shortcode 40014? Or did they reach out to you first? This shortcode should be for our Credit Operations Team and can be used to report a recent payment or set up payment arrangements for your Rogers account.
I hope this helps!

Scammers may try to gather information through text messages/SMS. Usually, these text messages will ask you to visit a specific website or call a certain phone number where you will be asked to provide information. Rogers will never contact you by email, text or phone to ask for personal information including PN and account numbers.
Keep in mind that text messages coming directly from Rogers will originate for four digits numbers (i.e. +8888).
To protect yourself and others, forward suspicious text messages (SMS) to: 7726 (SPAM).
Let us know if you have questions!
I’m receiving messages like this which are apparently from Rogers. Is anybody else getting texts like this and what should I do about it? Thanks

Welcome to Rogers Community Forums!
We would never process a refund over a text message. 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.
Always remember to avoid entering personal or banking information in suspicious messages or links.
Welcome to Rogers Community Forums! 😃
We have discussed similar smishing texts in this thread. We don't send refunds 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.
