Thread for reporting SMS spam

Hello,

 

  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.

 

  Thoughts?

 

Cheers

Hey SM73!

 

I moved your post to this thread since it is about the same subject. Smiley



Hello SM73,

 

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 Smiley Happy

 

Cheers

I received this text this evening:

 

Fido Canada Solution:
http://fidopaylivei.com/
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.

I received a text from Fido saying that my account has been over billed in error and there is a refund, please click on this message. That took me to a website asking me to deposit online into a bank account. I stopped right there as I was'nt sure if Fido did really send the message. Upon checking my Fido account online, I don't see any such refund info. Did anyone else receive such text messages recently?

I got the same exact message from the same number yesterday. I believe it is a scam so I didn't want to click on the link. I'm reporting it to Fido.
