Just wondering because I'm getting CibcMobileAlerts suddenly and I've never banked with Cibc. Strange!
I rec'd CIBC mobile text alert yesterday. I believe this is one of the scams/phishing tricks...text said account restricted to click on link. Don't click the link as they are looking for personal information. Am checking with CIBC to ensure this is a scam but seems similar emails going out to their clients as well. Makes me wonder how good the CIBC security is. Also makes me wonder how my cell number got out as I don't make calls and usually just text family/friends. Don't play apps on phone. Very suspicious on whether Koodo has a leak, or CIBC open to customers info being accessible.
Hey everyone, thanks for visiting us in the Koodo Community! We'd never share your personal account info with anyone, the texts that you've been receiving are from spammers. They send messages to random numbers so customers from other cell phone companies also receive them. You're all doing the right thing by ignoring the messages and not clicking on the links. If you're noticing that the texts are coming from a specific number, your cell may be able to block them with an app found in Blackberry World or Google Play.
