Scam or not?

I've been getting a lot of calls claiming that they're from TELUS and they offered me an offer which is too good to be true. But just to be sure, I asked them to send an email. The whole email body looks suspicious. But this might be just me being paranoid. The email ID is "[email protected]". Can you guys confirm whether this is a valid email id from TELUS ? If yes, I would definitely go for the offer. Cheers 🙂

100% scam. If it's not telus.com, consider it a scam. telusmobilityplans,com is not a Telus owned domain. The domain was also registered through a Lithuania based registrar.
