Is this legitimately you guys as the link turned out to be: 1telusdotcom when unshortened.

Is this a virus link? (I didn't open it)
Does Telus seriously make a habit of sending strange text messages from strange numbers?

Considering the area code of the phone number that texted you is from south central Virginia USA, I wouldn't trust the link at all.

I have flagged your post to a moderator to remove the links. In the future please replace the dots with a space or the word <dot> so that it isn't a link that someone can actually click on.

I always check the area code - lots from Georgia the last 4 months - reported all of them to  ( abuse@telus.com).  Robo calls have quit for now. Polecat
