Received a text message today from this number:  17052412875

Οverburden payment on May 2019. Reference #7770011."


I opened the link which redirected me to log into my bank account. I noticed too many questions were being asked which prompted me to call FIDO for confirmation. Turns out it's a scam. This is to inform others who got a similar message not to fall for this trick. Spread the awareness.

Hello Anna18,


Welcome to the community!


  Thanks for the information! You're right, that message is most definitely SPAM. Glad you were able to confirm by calling Fido. 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 😀
