Fraudulent Text

I just wanted to notify your team that I received a text from 1 226-997-7892 that says "We sent you a refund due to a billing error on your phone bill. To deposit your funds click the link below: hhtp://save-ref01.com/"

It takes you to a website that mimics fido stating you get 200 dollars back from a billing error. It asks for your bank info. I knew it was fraud immediatly but I just wanted to inform you guys so less savy users don't get scammed.

A text from number 581-729-0141 was received with folling words;

 

"67.89$ CAD has been sent from Fido Solutions due to a billing error.

Accept the transfer bellow: http://secuanddep.com"

 

The sender is not Fido .

The dollar sign is not in front of the amount.

The phone number is from Quebec City but it is spoofed.

The text contains 1 spelling error (in bold above).

 

This text has been reported to internetabuse@fidomobile.ca

 

Please be aware of the scam; the internet page actually exists 

and the links will fool you into reveal of account info.
