Fraud or real?

got a text from 4867 saying the following - before responding I want to be sure it's not a fraud and that I won't end up getting charged for this extra 1GB after the 6 months are up

treat yourself-on us! For a limited time, get an extra 1GB of data per month at no extra cost, just like that! Reply YES by 28-Aug-17 to activate your gift for (my phone number). Enjoy it as long as you have your current plan or until your next phone upgrade for up to 6 months (non-transferable). Questions? http://fido.ca/contactus

Re: Fraud or real?

I just got the same txt and am also trying to find out if its real of fake.

 

If its real I dont understand why they wouldnt just add one gig to your plan. Nobody is going to decline.

Re: Fraud or real?

Thankyou for such a prompt reply, but I suggest in the future in making the mesages look less, spam, fraud like. Have the message connected to your account, have it listed under your promos tab. Even have a sticky on the top of fido community general support that people can quickly reference.

 

Again thankyou for your responce.
