Scam text about outage

I'm a participant level 2
I'm a participant level 2

I received a text message from a phone number talking about the credit for the outage and to click a link to claim. Being a Fido customer for years I know that Fido usually contact via a specific 4 digit number. Also the credit is automatically being applied. Please be careful when it comes to these messages.
