Spam Text posing as Fido?

This morning received text message from 6138700627: "[New Message] Due to an overcharged amount in your past bill, Fido sent you an lnterac e-Transfer. Collect your funds here: http://members-solutions.com"

When you click that link, there's  $75.00 to be deposited via e-Transfer. But when you choose "no online banking", see this "not found 404.."

So, it's definitely SPAM

Hey @Dima2017,

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

You can forward this spam SMS to 7726 (SPAM), this'll submit the message to be audited then blocked from the Fido network.

 

Forwarding the message can be easily done on most devices by pressing and holding the body of the message, then press the forward button and send to 7726. 

 

You'll also find more details on scam text messaged on this page.

 

Hope it helps!
