I just received one saying:
Our system mistakenly overcharged your Fido account. We apologize for any inconvenient. To complete the refund, follow the instructions on the link below; http:// interac.fido-sms.com / 780.html
There should be a way for the companies to ban the numbers sending this kind of texts.
Thanks for passing on the information!

I understand the frustration in receiving SPAM SMS. However, it's very difficult to ban or block the numbers sending the texts. The people responsible for sending the SPAM often use spoofed numbers. If companies block the numbers being used, they might inadvertently ban innocent numbers. In addition, since they use spoofed numbers, the number of possible senders is practically limitless. Companies cannot realistically ban all of those possible numbers.
**edit** Even when one of the links gets blocked, they just alter it to bypass the SMS filter!**
Hope this helps!
