So, here's the story:
There was a weird message on the phone yesterday, they left a 1-877 number, so I called them back. It turned out to be collection agency (or "collection agency", I don't know which yet). They tried to collect $36.72 from me as an outstanding cable TV
invoice on behalf of Rogers communications. OK
, I said to the dude, give me the details: Account number, invoice number, invoice issue date...nothing. All he had was my name and my old address in Pickering. When I asked him how old it is, he said probably 7 years...Well 7 years ago I lived in Trebisov, Eastern Slovakia. I can guarantee, that there is no Rogers service there. OK
, so it was when you moved from Pickering to London said he... OK
, it was in March 2005 and my Rogers bills are billed directly to my credit card since the summer of 2004. I told the dude that I'm not calling the police just because the amount is ridiculous and hung up. Then I called Rogers. They had record about my account back to December 2001, all clean, all paid for.
So, they call and want me to pay for something:
- that gets charged directly to my CC
- Rogers has no record of
- Have no invoice #
- Have no account #
- Have no issue date
- They want a direct deposit only
- Rogers as a name of an agency with a similar name, but the phone numbers don't match
Now comes the best. The dude on the phone said that it was particularly a cable TV
invoice. I only had internet services from Rogers in Pickering, since the cable TV
was a part of a condo services package in the townhouse complex where I lived.
Here's the big question: Is it a scam, or is it a scam? Where to report an activity like this?
