I received this tonight I am thinking it is a scam
Rogers: Your attachment to us as client is inestimable. For that, you deserve a refund of $75,46. Click here to collect it: rog-att.com

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums. I appreciate you all reaching out to the Community to confirm, it's not from Rogers. You can now forward such text messages to 7726(SPAM). Doing so helps us to identify new types of spam messages and improve our filters for all users.

 

Thank you all for your contribution and for your help in keeping the community a pleasant place to be.

Fraudualant TXT

 

I received a TXT message today telling me I had overpaid my phone bill, to receive my credit I was to click on an attached link. The call came from a Rogers Cell phone subscriber in Abbotsford BC, 1-604-615-2637. Obviously this is a scam so do not click on the link.

The text bubble they refer to is the actual bubble with the text your want to forward. Give it a try for practice. Smiley Wink

Re: Smishing message from "ROGERS"

Certainly a scam. Not the URL is not Rogers but a website in Brazil. If you click one of the financial institutions "linked", they will steal your information and password.  Rogers does not send such messages.  It's a dead give-away when the message is illiterate, such as putting the $ sign after the amount. (Mods, the URL in the above message should be disabled.)

Phone text scam

 

Got a text  from 'Rogers Communications' (343)989-0632 forwarding a money transfer Refund with a wireless receipt. Asking to deposit in the bank  account by logging in to you account from phone .

 

Looks like a scam as I am not expecting any refund from Rogers.
