Re: Smishing message from "ROGERS"

Hello @hlee,

 

Congratulations on your very first post! There are quite a few scams out there these days, so better safe than sorry! 👍

 

Typically speaking, Rogers wouldn't send you a text message offering you a random gift. Sometimes we do offer a "gift with purchase" promotions, but this is normally only if you are activating a new product or service, or doing some sort of hardware upgrade for example.

 

The text message you received is likely a smishing scam and I would recommend collecting the following information:

  • The number that sent the text message
  • The contents of the text message

And report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre using one of the following methods:

 

Online: http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/reportincident-signalerincident/index-eng.htm

By Phone: 1-888-495-8501.

 

Just a reminder to never:

  • Share personal information.
  • Click on any links or open any attachments if they are suspicious.

I hope this helps!
