Last Text Message & # 39; Refund & # 39; Scam requirements for offering e-transfer from Rogers



False text messages claiming to be from Canada's wireless carriers offering repayment continue to target wireless users in the country.

These messages usually tell you that you have a refund waiting for you and receive it. All you have to do is log into your online bank to start Interac e-Transfer. Sounds tempting right? But when you sign in, fake people will have your online banking credentials. Yikes.

The latest feedback on the SMS feedback we received reads: "Dear, You have a refund from ROGERS, please 48. Click here to continue: http://nou1mail.com/", sent by number 867 -457 -5166.

 Rogers spam spoof

Savvy people want to know this is a false text message, given their humorous attempt to try to sound like an official message from Rogers. Looks like someone skipped a Rosetta Stone lesson or two.

Clicking on the URL, warns your mobile Safari and Chrome that is a "misleading site" and does not continue. However, if you ignore the warnings, you will be presented with the following, which looks like an official site to accept an Interac e-Transfer:

 Rogers text scam phishing

Clicking through to TD Canada, for example, you see this, which can easily fool anyone who does not pay attention to the browser URL:

 For example phishing page

This is what the legitimate TD Canada signature page looks like: [19659002]  For example, log in officially

According to Rogers, if you received a suspicious text from the company, then what you should do:

DO NOT reply to the text message, give personal information to the sender, or click any links or attachments included in the message. Instead, make sure you collect the following information:

The number that sent the text message
The content of the text message

Rogers then reports the incident to the Canadian Anti Fraud Center online or by phone.

Again, while savvy users will know that these are false texts, some will fall through the cracks and give you the opportunity to get a refund from Rogers. Wireless bills are expensive – who doesn't want any money back, right?

Last year, SaskTel issued a warning to customers of a similar fraud targeting its customers, explaining that they are cautious about any text messages receiving a refund were available.
