I got a text stating I have money to be deposited from that number. When I look at my bank records I don't have any transfers with the amount it says. When I click the link I get a warning that it is a deceptive site and not to enter any info. Is this a legit text?

Are you expecting a deposit? If not it's likely malicious and clicking on any included links is risky.

I get these texts now and then, including from numbers with all 9's in them. It's 100% a scam, and they are looking to steal your banking login credentials in order to access your bank accounts and transfer money out of it illegally. NEVER click on links from texts you don't know where they came from. It's also common to get texts from scammers pretending to be online stores like Amazon or Microsoft saying you are getting a "refund". 

Click on the message bubble then forward the message to 7726, you’ll get a text back from telus verify the number of the spam text.

I got a similar message with a shortened URL https://is<dot>gd/akrm1g1h0r telling me my netflix service is disabled. When I unshortened the URL and checked it, it was "https://telus<dash>noreply<dot>info/ which appears to be a real TELUS site, but I didn't select it.

How did you come to that conclusion? It is not a Telus domain. That domain was created today and uses a sketchy registrar Porkbun LLC

Sorry, did not check further, just used an expander to get the domain, should have dug deeper. These crooks are getting trickier every day, I just tell people to not click on any link in any message that allegedly comes from any supplier, go to an official web site first. In today's supposed Netflix message I went to the Netflix site and checked, there was no cancellation of service, plus first I did report to TELUS 7726...
