FIDO TEXT FRAUD

Suspicious text message received

A Screen text capture of message (4 Nov 2017 @ 2:04pm):
"67.89$ CAD has been sent from Fido Solutions
due to a billing error. Accept the transfer bellow:
( malicious URL not quoted )"

Caller ID of TEXT SMS is +1 581 729 0141 (Quebec City Area Code)

body of message has one spelling error ("bellow")
and the web URL quoted actually exists:
“secuanddep[dot]com” (please do not go to this malicious URL)
but this is obviously a fishing site with official looking logos
for Canadian banks promising a FIDO refund due to billing error.

I was using Linux (and browser) and I clicked on one of the banks to receive money. This message came
