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

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.

Thanks for the feedback Smiley We'll make sure it reaches the right place!

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.
