Type of a scam Phishing

Claim to be westjet, get your free holiday or 70% travel. If you get them on the phone, they will ask you "are you over 27 years old?" Never answer "yes" or "no", it’s a scam to record your voice and try to authorize charges to random accounts. They have your phone number listed and your voice recorded. Unfortunately we can’t stop them as the numbers are always spoofed. If you try to call back it’s either someone else’ number or the number doesn’t exist.

It was a Robot call saying "thank you for choosing WestJet. Your name has been selected for …" then I hung up because I haven’t used westjet… ever. When I looked up the number, it said the used was from Bouchie Lake, outside of Quesnel BC which is a rural area.

Type of a scam Phishing

A phone call was placed supposedly from WestJet saying that I had been selected to receive a voucher for $ off my next flight. "To qualify, are you 35 years of age or older?" When you answer "yes", they appear to transfer your call and then disconnect. They now have your recorded "yes".

Another version of this scam….

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Said that my phone number had been selected by West Jet to win a $999.99 travel prize. When I said that I wanted more information, they asked if I was over the age of 30 and wanted personal information. At this point I asked to be removed from their list and they agreed and ended the call.
