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.
Today I've got text message from 3993 twice like this.
'Hi it's fido: you have received 53.45$ of overcharge. Please click the following link in order to claim your funds.
and interac link was there.
Is it scam message?
Hi guys be carful of a scam that’s using Fidos number 399-9. I received one that read: Hi, it's Fido: You have received 53.45$ of overcharge.PLease click the following link in order to claim your funds
I have talked to Fido online and they said do not open the link that it’s a scam. They said Fido is working on it.
I just wanted to report a surprisingly sophisticated phishing scam.
I received the following message from +14377772884:
"Hi, it's Fido: Take advantage of our new $75 promotion by linking your amazon account to your fido profile: [phishing link redacted]"
The phishing message seems pretty standard, the link looked sketchy and there were some grammar mistakes. The thing that caught me off guard was that it came from a legitimate Fido phone number. This was the same number that had previously been used to text me about my bookings with Fido technicians.
The link of course leads to a spoofed Amazon login page that will steal your credentials.
How could this happen? Seems very irresponsible of Fido to have this vulnerability.
Welcome to the community.
Thanks for your vigilance and for informing the community about this scam! They are indeed getting more and more creative, so it's super important to stay careful before clicking any links from a text message.
