This scammer is on Shaw cable and not with the Sympatico network,
Does that mean that Bell won't investigate?

I hope Bell does something.

You see the scam right?

The link is to --- which is a completely different domain than

"Registrant / Admin Contact :
518 Old Mill Rd
21108 Millersville
phone : +843 33846555
fax :
e-mail : [email protected]"

Phony Whois information, no doubt. Note the use of a European style phone number and European conventions in the address (Zip code before City, lack of state) and a throwaway Yahoo free webmail (untraceable) email.

Here is where that site is hosted, in Spain at - complain here.

Cableuropa SA [NORG-3854901]

Blah Blah Blah from Bell...

Greetings ,

We regret to inform you that Sympatico Member Services has no
affiliation with a service provided by INTERAC regarding email money
transfers, therefore we are unable to confirm or deny the validity of
the email message.

Should you receive such correspondence in the future and not deal with
the company name stated, or have not requested certain information by
email, we suggest you delete this correspondence from your inbox. As you
are aware, emails messages of this type are commonly meant to deceive
users into supplying personal information with intent for fraudulent
use. This activity is known as "phishing". Please keep in mind that
reputable institutions would not request personal information via email

Should you judge the content of an Internet transmission to be contrary
to Canadian law, we invite you to report the incident to the local
authorities for investigation.

We hope this information will have been useful and should you have any
comments or questions about network abuse originating within the
Sympatico domain, please do not hesitate to contact us at
[email protected].
