Re: Spam Messages

Just got a text today saying: 

Rogers Wireless: "We overcharged your account on previous payment. A refund has been sent to you. Deposit:" followed by a link.

 

 

Funny thing is, I'm not even with Rogers anymore...I switched over to Freedom mobile in the summer. Don't even clink on the link. These scammers have got to make a better living than this.

Re: Spam Messages

Hello, @patdrummond.

 

I appreciate you trying to forward a smishing text to 7726; forwarding such texts to us is really helpful for investigation and blocking them from our network. 

 

When you hold on the text and select forward and enter 7726 in the To field the messaging app should only send one message. Depending on the phone, the default phone/message app can block and report the number without forwarding the text message. 

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin
