Rogers e mail verification scam, Beware eh.

I don't know where to post this, so I'll do it here. If it in the wrong forum, please move Moderator. Thanks.

I received the following email and called Rogers to verify. It turns out to be a phishing scam. The urgent nature and short time line made me suspicious.

Got that too. To be sure, I went through my Yahoo account looking for announcements like this. Nothing there.
