The +1 being a scam was confirmed before. That's also not a valid phone number either. Too many digits. That's another easy way to spot a scam.
Ha, the too many digits was my typo. The call was from +1 (888) 811-2323
Maybe the +1 scam tipoff was true before, but not true as of yesterday at the least. I panicked reading your comment on an old thread while on the line, hung up my conversation, and called Telus directly to let them know I just got scammed. They then confirmed it was actually a call from Telus, that they had notes specific to my conversation with the +1 (888) 811-2323 call received, and the name of the agent I was speaking to from the +1 number, who was really helpful as an aside. The deal offered was quite complex in terms of layered discounts, and the notes the Telus agent had matched the word-for-word offer I got from the +1 number.
