    I received an email exactly like the above phishing one this morning Oct 19, 2018, and tried to contact TELUS but the wait was 1 hour and the "chat" system they have now only directs you to pre-set questions.
    The email was sent from"<ebill-74401@inthedoghousegrooming.com" which should be a big red alert if you notice it!
    I searched online and found this information, so I'm deleting the email.
    Thank you.
