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

If you receive any text that send from unknown person, it is always better to be careful.

This happens often. Don't give info unless you know who you're giving it to.
