I got a text from 587-679-0332 telling me that my visa was restricted. I don't have a visa so I sent a message back saying I was going to report them to the police. A gentleman speaking very poor English with a Russian accent called me & asked why I was texting him. Any ideas? We're both koodo customers.

Probably a telemarketer spoofing the phone #. I had a random stranger call me the other day asking if I had called them and I said nope! Weird.

Best thing to do is such circumstances is not to disclose any personal information. Koodo will never ask you for personal information even if it's billing related. They would contact you to let you know your past due but otherwise be very weary with these phishing scams.
