Thank you for being overcautious. Its always good to double check these things, After looking at it, its likely NOT a scam, but it could have been a e-transfer confirmation to someone via a text message and by accident it went to your phone number, possibly due to a typo.
Usually the fraudulent ones involve coming from a spoofed 10 digit telephone number, this one actually comes from a short code. i remember doing interact e-transfers in the past and remember getting a similar text. but good on you for being cautious
I contacted Interac (see my email and their answer) but it appears that they can not help me at all and I will continue to receive notifications till the e-Transfer expires in about one month. Interac did not even confirm 100% that the notification is not a scam also I sent them the full link to the e-Transfer page.
My email to Interac
From: My email address Date: 07/08/2020 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: I received, likely by mistake, an 168 $CAD notification from a person named EDITH LEBRASSEUR whom I do not know
I received this message (from 100001 at 12:20 PM, EST; July 08, 2020):
"Virement INTERAC : EDITH LEBRASSEUR vous a envoyé des fonds. Voir (Removed Potentially Malicious Link - RogersTony)[the full address edited]. Des frais peuvent s'appliquer"
After clicking the link, I entered a page with this content:
Please announce EDITH LEBRASSEUR that she made a mistake or at least tell me what I have to do to inform her about this error.
Phone: My phone number

Thank you for contacting the Interac Support Centre. Please reference REQ02***** in any correspondence with our Support team. If you received an email or text notification for an Interac e-Transfer you were not expecting and if you are also not acquainted with the sender, you should delete the notification. It is possible the sender has sent this to you in error. Unfortunately, you will continue to receive reminder emails to take action until the Interac e-Transfer is deposited, cancelled or expired. You should also delete these notifications. An Interac e-Transfer expires in approximately 30 days.
Only the sender of a transfer can confirm if a transfer is legitimate. We are unable to contact the sender.
