Scam text message

I recieved a text message from Rogers that claims that due to a billing error they were sending me a credit of $283.59 via e-transfer. All I need to do is login into my TD acct and deposit the funds.  The message was sent from text #12899415678 and the website address is paula-buchholz.eu.  

Is this a scam?  If so, what do I do?

 

Thank you,  Olimpia

Hello Scopinoo,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

   Thanks for the information! That message most definitely is a scam. You can help reduce these scam SPAM messages by copying and forwarding the message to 7726 (SPAM). Once audited, it will be used to augment the SPAM filter (see here).

 

Hope this helps :Smiley:

 

Cheers
