I have been forwarding my spam email-to-SMS to @FidoStephen via PMs to help improve the spam filter for sms.fido.ca
Recently, another community member also posted a similar spam SMS they received. Perhaps a thread dedicated to collecting examples of these types of SMS spam might also help improve the spam filter.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks so much for taking the time to flag all of these to us.
Now you can send any SMS spam you receive to the number 7726 (SPAM). This will submit the messages to be audited and potentially blocked from the network if confirmed to be spam.
All you need to do is forward the spam SMS to 7726. You can do this easily by pressing and holding on the body of the text and then press the forward button. No additional charges apply for this
Thanks again for all your help!
Hey @smuffie1 and thanks for reaching out.

I got an text message from a number 1 416-356-8509 saying FIDO Solutions Inc: FIDO has sent you FIDO Dollars: <url removed> Collect your funds (60.45$CAD)!
Is this spam or phishing? Please let me know,
I received this text this evening:
Fido Canada Solution:
Collect your Refund!
Fido has overcharged your Account (96.76$)
The number associated with the text is 1 (418) 490-2763.
I figured it was spam and deleted the text.
Welcome to the community!
Thanks for the information! That is most definitely a SPAM scam. You can copy and forward the message to 7726 (SPAM) for evaluation and hopefully added to the SPAM filter (see here).
Hope this helps
