WARNING - Email Scam

Attention Rogers and Rogers customers - be wary of an email scam.

 

Adress from: angelo@rogerscommunication.com  "ROGERS COMMUNICATIONS"

"Important Update Regarding Your Rogers Account"

 

Body of text reads about system being broken into, no personal info taken, but log in to syncrhonise your account to reset your Rogers services.  Etc....

 

Official Rogers perhaps may want to send out notices???

Re: WARNING - Email Scam

I received an invitation -- via e-mail -- from "Rogers" for a Gift Giveaway. Can I trust it?

 

I clicked the link and took a screenshot of the site. Find it in my dropbox:

Re: WARNING - Email Scam

Yes, those ARE legit.

Myself as others have claimed them.  The rogers facebook and twitter accounts confirmed they are legit.

Bizarrely, this does seem to be a legitimate Rogers e-mail.

It's very, very, very, bad practice on the part of Rogers to send their customers e-mail asking them to click a link and then log in to get something free.

 

This is exactly how your account info get phished.

Re: WARNING - Email Scam

I just got one the other day, subject: "Rogers Account Change Details" with the wrong account number on it and it mentions a change I never requested (odd that it came right after a phone call to Rogers about something else).

 

So I went to the Rogers page and sent feedback.  Then I get an email from "Jennifer", with the Rogers Management Office, asking me to verify account, DOB, Postal Code and PIN.  Um, sorry Jennifer, not happening.  I forwarded the suspected email to the address from the second email two days ago.  And of course, I haven't received a response. 

 

I suspect all of these are bogus emails and Rogers is really starting to anger me.

Re: WARNING - Email Scam

Hello pmedmoe1


Roger doesn't reply to emails they send to customers. So that's the main reason why you aren't getting a reply. Why don't you flag it as a fishing email?

You can also contact Rogers via Live Chat and tell them about this so they know about it.

Re: WARNING - Email Scam

So, if they don't reply to emails sent to me, why would I reply to emails sent by them?  That seriously makes absolutely no sense at all.....
