idk I just turn on my browser and it popped out after 10 seconds
Close the tab then close the browser. Reopen the browser and if it goes to that site again then it's likely that your browser homepage is now set to that site. This can happen if you visit a scam site that tricks you into setting itself as your browser homepage. If this is the case then go to your Edge settings and change it to open a valid website or a blank tab.
When I saw these, I was excited. But in following the link, lo and behold it is pop-up advertising. A scam? I could not say, but probably one of those things, that if it sounds to good to be true - it is. Anyway - nothing to do with any Telus offer.
Hi @DebReynolds The website shown here is a phishing / scam website. They are often created with fake information, and no real contact information.
Unless you received an email from this scam website that provides you with details about your order, and contact information, there is nothing you can really do to contact them.
- Call your credit card provider, ask to speak to their fraud department, and tell them what happened "You provided your credit card information on a phishing / scam website and need to prevent any unauthorized transactions, and cancel the credit card to prevent ant future fraud use".

- Do your best to remember all the information you may have provided on this phishing website, and please reply with what info was shared. Don't actually specify the details, rather only share the category of information... example: I shared my email address, phone number, account number, SIN number, drivers licence number, etc. Once you provide this information, I can assist you with additional steps to take to ensure minimal to no damaging effects occur.
