Beware of phishing text messages purporting to be from Hydro-Québec
Hydro-Québec invites you to be very careful, since text messages have been sent to a number of customers in the company’s name. These fraudulent messages incite the receiver to follow an Interac link.
If a site asks for your credit card number or other confidential information, do not supply any information. Hydro-Québec never communicates with its customers through text messages.
If you or someone you know receives a fraudulent text message, report it immediately to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by calling 1 888 495-8501, toll free. Do not click on the link in the text, since it will take you to a Web site where you will be asked for confidential information.
