If you received one too, DO NOT click the link. Report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and forward the message to 7726 (SPAM).

Scams are a lucative business. I have also seen texts from
"CRA"
"RENEVU QUEBEC"
"NETFLIX"
"SCOTIA"
"CIBC"

 

It's another reason why thieves in prison don't have access to a computer and cell phone.

Get them all the time.. rule of thumb is if I dont know the number it's an automatic delete

The spelling of the link should be an obvious indicator not to click on it.
