Suspicious offer from Telus

Arny1211

Hi, somebody from unidentified phone number called me and offered telus 20$ 100GB plan and a free iphone or samsung phone if I switch to Telus.They gave me their telus id TEL6024MW, name Mark Wayne and a phone number 437-524-8616 to call for verification. Sounds very suspicious.Is it legitimate offer or a scam?

Hey @Arny1211 I have not heard of an offer like this or employee IDs like this unless they are a dealer.

 

Do you know if they were from a dealership in your local area?

It's a scam. For me the red flags are:

  • No cell company is offering free flagship phones.
  • The employee ID. Especially that it ended with the initials of the supposed employee.
  • They called from a non Telus number.
  • That phone number is part of an NXX controlled by Iristel in Ontario and I can't see Telus needing to use a third party phone provider. That company also has nothing but 1 star google reviews and many mentioning scams.
