PC Optimum scam tells members accounts are at risk

A text message phishing scam has targeted Loblaw Companies Limited PC Optimum members which claims users’ account balances are at risk due to inactivity.

If clicked, the link looks nearly identical to PC Optimum’s login page; however, the company says the only website users should submit their login information to is “pcoptimum.ca.”

In a story reported by CTVNews.ca, a Loblaw spokesperson told the news media “this type of text scam is common and not specifically targeting our PC Optimum members. It uses phone numbers from various systems to blast Canadians with messages like this in the hopes consumers will click on the website link and access their account information this way (phishing).”
