Fraudulent text

I received 2 text messages from 1-905-334-1543 saying $116.79 was refunded to my account. Had to click on the link. Is this fraudulent?

Hello RM0404,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

Thanks for the information!  Yes, those messages are 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
