Texts from FIDO-INC

I keep getting text messages from FIDO-INC*  saying our team is reaching out to you due to a mistake in your last phone bill. We've sent you $135.60 CAD in result of that error. Get hold of it: http://37.120.239.233. Data rates may apply.

 

I have not clicked on the link or responded, but I am sure this is a scam!

Hello @janrobinson1107,

 

That's definitely a spam text Fido would never send something like that.

 

You can forward any spam SMS receive to 7726 (SPAM).  This will submit the message to be audited then blocked from the Fido network. This can be easily done on most devices by pressing and holding the body of the message, then press the forward button and send it to 7726.

This is a phishing scam site, and there will be many more where this came from. Unfortunately they always get a few unsuspecting people.

I reported it and I'm sure many more will also, but they will just use a new number and continue on scamming and phsihing for your personal information.
