Voicemail Scam Alert

Published on: July 25, 2016

Voicemail Scam AlertWe have received reports of staff receiving voicemail messages at work claiming to be from Canadian Delivery Express.

This is a known scam. The message claims that there is a delivery and to call them back with a delivery code 5526. No number is provided in the voicemail. The expectation is that the victim would call back the number on the caller ID. That number is a premium line that will charge extra for the call. There is at least one report that they will even put the victim on hold playing music to keep the line open longer, accumulating further charges.

Information Technology Services advises the U of T community not to return these phone calls and disregard the voicemail.
