I received a text message this a.m. from 'Fido Solutions Inc'. It reads in part '____$CAD was refunded (Ref_____) Click below: _________________ to re-claim your funds'. I did not show the $ amount here nor the reference number or the link. Is this Fraud? Thank you!

I've been getting the same txt massages also and I know it's a scam but my son has an account under my plan and it came close for him to get fished in. Please educate your members under your acount because it's clearly a scam.

Thanks for your feedback @chemyGuy!

 

We do think it's important to educate our customers which is why we posted about it in the blog. Feel free to share this with your son or anyone you know as we see more an more of these scams popping up.
