I have encountered the same problem.

This company (text88588) billed my Telus cell phone for $4 for 2 msg sent to me. The company has a dirty tactics of dimming out the fine print and purposely placing the terms and conditions on the second half of the webpage. I suggest we all file a complaint with the CRTC against this company. I am not sure how many cell phone customers have been cheated by this company and how many "real" cell phone it actually has given out as prizes.

I got same type of charges for some shiittty messaging, which I do not even know for what I am getting. I got two bills of 24 $ and 33 $..

This is pure SCAM by FIDO.

I have wrote to their executive office and they have not responded in last two weeks. You can call Gaetano Di Falco, office of executive on following address.
