SMS scam?

Hi,

Today, I got the following SMS appearing to come from 'Premium':

Nå er det siste sjanse
Få Spotify Premium i 6 måneder for kun 10 kroner
Kom i gang her - <URL removed>

Avmeld: send X til +4759444916

It's in Norwegian, and in short, it says, "Now it's the last chance -Get Spotify Premium for 6 months for only NOK 10 -Get started here - <the bit.ly link>
Unsubscribe: Send X to <not a typical Norwegian mobile number>

The link leads to an obvious fake page asking for the Spotify credentials.

Anyone else receiving it?

I received the following offer by SMS:

Siste sjanse! Fyll opp 6 Maneder Spotify Premium for kun 25 kr.

Tilbudet utloper snart

Klikk Her: http://bit.ly/2H8dpRw

Im from Norway, an the sms is writen in Norwegian.

The link redirects you to http://minspotify.com/premium/

Which looks like a legitimate spotify website
If you click the Premium button on this page, you will be redirected to the following pagehttps://muse.nextwinnertoday.com/no/?o=236&r=jlw19033398ut82&a=45&sa=1229 (looks like scam)

I thought it was advisable to contact support, to check if there is an offer like this from Spotify. But found no way to contact them, other than Twitter. So I ask you guys here. Is it real or is it scam?

In Finland..

 

So.. I think this is scam too? Did seem bit suspicious, cause I have premium and it's still valid.

 

Sms:

 

"Warning! Your Spotify account has expired. Activate 6 months spotify premium now!

Click here ..."

I've also received the same message. Has anyone followed the link?

I followed the link on an Android device to see what it looked like, knowing well that it was a fake thing.

First, the address in the address bar wasn't even remotely related to Spotify's domain. There was a 2-minute counter that started, urging me to answer a short "survey" asking generic things about your Spotify usage habits, and I got a 92% "score", allowing me to go further! Fantastic!

Typical. Create a sense of hurry, giving the victims little time to think about their actions. Not impressed.

At this point, there was a form asking for personal info like full name, address and phone number. At this point I stopped and closed the Web browser tabs.

Nice try, morons...
