SCAM - 50$ iPhone 14 Pro with 30 GB plan

Schnazer
I've been here awhile

I have gotten two calls now from what seem to be local numbers.  They identify themselves as representatives calling on behalf of Rogers and offering a 50$ a month plan (taxes included) for 30 GB data/unlimited calling+text plan and iPhone 14 Pro or latest Samsung.  When I said I don’t need the phone they offered just the plan for 30$ (all taxes included again).  When I agreed, they took my email and said someone would phone me back.  Another guy phoned me back and then said to wait for an authentication email so he can continue… the email I got was one of those verification emails for when you forget your own password to log into MyRogers.  I read him the number and immediately got an email saying MyRogers account password has been changed.  I asked what was going on and he tried to explain something about how this is part of the process, but I hung up and immediately changed my password again.  Luckily, I’m not really a Rogers customer but a Shaw Mobile customer.  I thought this was the account conversion team calling me, but one of my red flags should have been that these guys got confused when I mentioned moving my account from Shaw Mobile to Rogers… Problem is, I don’t really know if I can trust anyone from Rogers phoning me again but I would actually like to talk to the conversion team at some point…

Similar scam but now the offer is $50 for 60gb with iPhone 14promax or a Samsung phone. When I said not interested in phone. He offered $28 for 60gb with the usual unlimited stuff PLUS unlimited Canada and U.S.A. roaming. 2 year term. I felt deal was too good to be true. So I asked him to email me the deal so I could look it. Also because the call quality was so poor each time they called and I had a really hard time hearing them. I reached out to Rogers to confirm if the sender’s email (confirmation@confirmationwwwrogersorder.com) was legit. I was told no. Many red flags 1) the deal was too good to be true 2)he asked me to confirm if I was an existing Rogers or Fido customer. When I asked shouldn’t you already know this? He said they are only given customer’s phone number no other information 3) when he asked for my email address to send me the promotion he said make sure it’s an email associated with your Rogers account because the authentication team needs to verify I am a existing customer. Puts me on brief hold and tells me I’ve been authenticated and email sent. When I said I will look over it when I get the email. He insisted I check my email right away. But it really wasn’t coming up and I asked if I could call back if I’m interested. He said their number was at the bottom of email. found it strange I was able to call back as in pass I’m always told I cannot call the loyalty or promo department back directly. 4) the promo email was simple and didn’t look very professional. 5)I’ve been getting calls 2x a day now asking if I’m interested in the deal after seeing the email. I tell them straight up that I’ve reported them to Rogers fraud dept and anti-fraud centre but they don’t seem to care. I’ve even said I’ve reported them to the police. They just keep following a robotic script “so are you interested in this promotion?” I asked “why would I be interested in a fraudulent deal? Their response: “I understand ma’’am so are you interested in this promotion?” I actually tried to call back the # (+1437 780 8481) provided in their email, and someone does pick up as “Rogers Promotional Department”. I asked to speak to the guy, Steve Clay agent 1517, who sent me the email and he quickly transferred me to Steve Clay. Sure enough it was Steve Clay as I recognized his voice. They call me every day now. The numbers usually start with 647-402 or 647-422 647-420. I tried to call back each of these number and some go straight to an inactive voice mail, one number I think someone is manually “ending” the call as it doesn’t go to voice mail.
Yesterday I tried to play along and you could hear the excitement. Then after choosing my phone colour I asked what he’s gonna need from me? My credit card information? he said no just your email. I was thinking what kinda of scam just needs your email? So now I’m board I guess they are after the account. When I called into Rogers. I already had a fraud alert notes on my account.

Same call, unfortunately I give them some information regarding the credit card and ended calling to my bank to change everything. Thankfully they didn't have time to use it. Got call from  the number 647-312 7912. Hope this help other to don't fall for the same scam. 

Re: SCAM - 50$ iPhone 14 Pro with 30 GB plan

They just tried the same scam on me. 647-xxx-2043. They're probably getting a lot of people with this...

How about this suggestion, How about we do not take calls from Rogers, and instead call THEM when we want a phone or plan. That should reduce the amount of scams and fraud

This advice isn’t helpful when a VERY sizeable handful of us former Shaw Mobile customers have been bombarded with constant emails/warnings that we need to transfer our Shaw Mobile account/service/SIM to a Rogers account/service/SIM for the past 6 months.  I normally ignore offers like this, but I legitimately thought this was organized outreach to Shaw Mobile customers from Rogers Mobile.  Fortunately the scammers were clueless about this huge migration this year and this was one of my red flags during the call.   This merger with Shaw has been very confusing because my internet service is remaining under the Shaw name and didn’t require any physical hardware changes.

I received the same call today from a
1-905-592-1765 Burlington, Ontario number. The voice was heavily accented and seemed far easter. I hung up on them when I began to get suspicious.

I have gotten a dozen calls in the last week from both people representing 'Rogers' and 'telus' both with the same offer you cite, 50 for the newest phone and a big plan for 24 months, or 30 for a 40GB plan with unlimited everything. They pose as having to register your desire then have another person confirm, they then confirmed a lot of information, but it got clearly too far when after confirming address they wanted to know how long I've lived at the address or they could not proceed. (let's just say, there were a few red flags)

 

Numbers were always sketchy, often showed 'likely spam' or 'toll free number' - this is getting aggressive.

I received the same call from 367-433-9935 and they offered the i-phone 15 plus unlimited call/text in Canada/USA and 30G data for $50/month.  I got suspicious when they asked for information that they would already have if they were legit (email, home address, birthdate (odd?))  and they said it was to verify me)  I hung up when they asked for my account number, but I'm afraid that I may have given up too much information anyway.  Scary.
