Received free gift from Fizz, looks like security exploit - please confirm and warn user base

I received a text message from: 1 581 490 9362 indicating I received a $10 gift from Fizz.

The URL is flagged as a deceptive web site and likely contains security vulnerabilities.

Please confirm whether this is a Fizz site or not, and please warn user base if it's malicious.

How do they know which phone numbers are a Fizz customer?

Hello David Seal,

Fizz is aware that some of its members were targeted by a text message phishing attempt this weekend. Both the sender’s email address and Internet address were quickly blocked. Please note that Fizz will never reimburse its members through an Interac transfer.

We recommend our members to destroy the said text message, and take this opportunity to remind you to never provide confidential information without having first checked the origin of the website where they could be redirected.

Agreed! This doesn't look legitimate. Fizz is directly added to your contact list through your SIM card. If you look at the details of the text message,it will show that the text was sent "From:Fizz" as opposed to a phone number.
