Scam?

Recently had a call promoting a wifi security camera and a slightly cheaper plan.... eventually started asking for permission for a credit check to put it through, then ID such as SIN number....seemed odd. Then got a confirmation email with the extension @e.koodoomobile.com. Am I right this sounds a scam? Ended up hanging up on them.

Sounds fishy to me regardless of it was a scam or not. 

 

Never give personal info over the phone from a cold call.

 

I would ask them for some kind of reference number and if you could call back an official channel through Telus or Koodo to pick up the conversation.

Did you copy and paste the email address? The fact that koodoo is misspelled tells me enough... unless that was a typo on your part.

Regardless Dennis gave solid advice: never give your personal information to a random person calling you!
