I got a text message on my prepaid phone from Fido Communication: An amount of $73.59 was reimburse. See http://sapiagroup.org/etransf/ to claim your funds. 

I tried to got to site but was warned by microsoft not to. Is this message legit.

Hello Momo107s,

 

 

Welcome to the community!

 

  Thanks for the information! That message is most definitely SPAM. The providers are doing all that they can to prevent SPAM SMS. You can help by forwarding these messages to 7726 (SPAM) (see here). Once audited, it will be used to augment the SPAM filter. Unfortunately, as fast as these messages get blocked by the SPAM filter, the spammers/scammers find new ways to bypass the filter.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Thank you for your quick response. I suspected it was a spam, you just confirmed it. The message was too good to be true.
