How can I Report a Scam?

If you have received a phone call or are contacted in through another means and believe it to be part of a scam you can report it to Shaw by contacting us directly

Suspicious emails coming from @shaw.ca or @sjrb.ca addresses or are claiming to be from Shaw can be forwarded with headers included to internet.abuse@sjrb.ca. Suspicious emails coming from any other addresses or are claiming to be from an entity other than Shaw should be reported to the person/company being impersonated for verification and action. You can always report spam emails to reportspam@shaw.ca to have those examples added to Shaw’s spam filter.
