Re: WARNING -> fake MyBell credit-card-declined spam

I also received this and phone calls telling me my Bell account was overdue where they asked for a credit card to bring it up to date. When I declined to provide they "wanted to verify my information" including my phone number. When I mentioned they just called it the person repeated they didn't have it on file. DUH! The phone number was US based. They tried the same game two times and I declined to participate asking when did Bell Canada begin to operate a US call centre. Haven't heard from them since.

The email the message came from is "Self serve with MyBell " You would think they would at least try and use a Bell email address!

Hope this helps!

you're best forwarding the e-mail to the Bell Fraud Department.

This is true. If you do come across one of these sites, please forward the email or the link address to abuse@bell.ca and our team will deal with it.

Another fake MyBell portal spam:

From: MyBell [mailto:customercenter@bell.ca]
Sent: Tuesday, September 24, 2013 7:14 AM
To: www.eandroid.es ErHLy
Subject: (account-name)@sympatico.ca Billing Issue!

Same format as the first example in this thread.

The URL (which seems to be non-functional) was:


Originating IP was (bas12-montrealak-1167975385.dsl.bell.ca) and was handled effortlessly through Bell/Microsoft servers and deposited into my sympatico account.

You would think that Bell would coordinate with Microsoft by now to insure that their spam filters catch this stuff and kill it so it doesn't spread. Again, my congratulations to the brain trust that is the IT staff at Bell for the way they manage their network services.
