Likely phishing sent by my own number.

I just recieved a text message from my own phone with a link to this website: (do not click link)

https://u30487.xyz/isp1/?oid=36&dom=glittersisgold.com&lpkey=1649480456ef66f956&uclick=9zpma2i4&ucli...

The page says there is an offer for a free apple watch as a reward for paying my bill consistently, an offer that is coincidentally only available on the 29th, today. I have recieved notices and offers from Verizon before and they almost always take me to the app or the actual verizon web page. So, I'm fairly certain this is a sc*m. 

My question is how it was possible that this was sent to me using my own phone number? Is there any legitimacy to this offer (I doubt it)?

I have not been on any questionable web pages or installed any questionable apps, so I'm a bit confused by the situation.

It's actually quite easy for spammers to send you a text that looks like it was sent from your own number, it's a common spam practice.
