It's a scam. You would have to check the link in the text from your browser.  It's a sly attempt at phishing.

It's obvious. The link name does not point you to Fido's website. Don't click on it. Delete the text message 

to prevent you from being tempted to click the link.

Hello @Lunala,

 

That is a scam Fido/Rogers does not offer any credits via text message it is always done by invoice and they will automatically credit every line 5 days' worth of service.
