DO NOT PAY THEM! That is a scam. You reached the wrong web site when you attempted to link your device. You have to go to https://my.roku.com/link for the correct address. The scammers have manipulated the search engines to place their sites higher than the legitimate Roku site. 

I hope you did not give them any personal information, or access to your Roku user account. If you did, change your Roku user account password immediately so they don't lock you out if it. Now go to the legitimate Roku site listed above and you will be able to link your new device just fine. If you  can't get the link code back on screen, then do a hard reset and start over. Depending on the device, the reset button could be inside a small hole, or a soft touch button on the case.

Re: activation fee Scam

Jump to solution

Activation fee. Is this a scam I bought a new tv and when prompted to enter activation code I received an error message with phone number to call. When I called he entered my code from his end and set up but stated a billing person would call me back to process an activation fee. I later got a call to request payment of 179.99 an invoice was emailed to me saying I have 24 hours to pay. I have not paid as am suspicious this is a scam. Please advise

"Tech support" was a scammer you somehow reached instead of a legitimate Roku contact.  You gave them enough information to get your Roku linked to an account, but it is an account controlled by the scammer, not you.  A legitimate Roku account would be named with your email address, not the scammer's.

To regain control, you should perform a factory reset (Settings > System > Advanced system settings > Factory reset.  You'll have to set your unit up again from scratch.

IMPORTANT! When linking your device you are directed to go to roku.com/link. Type this in very carefully and verify that you actually do go there. Otherwise you can end up at a scammer's fake Roku site. If you end up at ANY site not on roku.com (other than the https://my.roku.com/link that you'll get redirected to), back out and try again.

If you gave the scammer ANY payment information, they now have the ability to hit you with bogus charges, and sell your information to others who can do the same.  Watch your incoming charges like a hawk.  Spammers can call their charges anything they want so don't assume a charge that says it's from Roku really is from Roku.  Dispute any false charges with your financial institution - they can trace them back to the account that actually placed them.

IT IS A SCAM!!!!  To link your Roku, don't do a search (which almost all web browsers do by default these days).  Go here:  https://my.roku.com/link

Re: Activation or Support Scam

I have had ROKU for 5 years and one of them failed so I looked on my ROKU account to see what kine I could get.I decided on one and ent to Wal mart and of it . Cam home tried to hook it up and got a message to call cust support. The foreign man told me that ROKU just started a new policy that it charged a one time fee of $99.00 for a 3 unit plan. and they went up from there. I had already signed in today and he said he checked my account and since I had never paid the one-time activation fee he would have charge me same. I refused and told him I would take it back. The whole website advised there are not fees I do subscribe to FUBO and he said wold get that for a one time fee also.. I knew something was not right so I hung up on him and came in on my PC and checked my existing account and there is nothing about a one-time fee starting Aug of this year.  I am a retired agent form the Ill State Police, this is out and out FRAUD if ROKU advertises the devices are no Fee and then after you buy them charge you a fee. Who do I contact regarding FRAUD cases.  Jerry L Deen ROKU has my contact info I jsut hope they call me.

There's no fraud on Roku's part. Those scammers are the ones that are attempting something illegal. There is NO charge by Roku at all for any sort of account or activation. What they (the scammers) have done is manipulate the search engines, and when you began typing in the web address to link your new device (the legitimate address is https://my.roku.com/link) the browser suggests a match, which in reality is a scam site. Unfortunately, many people accept those false suggestions, which is why they end up on the scam site. 

Since these scammers are not located within the US (you noted the foreign accent) there's nothing Roku can legally do against them.
