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.
Your solution does not work if Messenger is your default messaging app. When I press on "forward", it send me on an endless FB loop with no option to send to a 4-digit #! "Send to new group" does not work either.
Sorry for the confusion there @NikoNorth I thought this was the message you received when trying to report a spam.
@Cawtau is right, this message is indeed coming from us and in regards to a service we offer. As you can see, our text messages might ask you to answer prompts but we do not ask you to fill out or send personal info.
Hope that helps
I tried sending it to the 7726 number. But it saying not deliver. Even try with the # in front nope. Probably my very advanced technological experience the problem.. very sarcastic by the way 😂😅
I can’t seem to send this to 7726...
Welcome to the community!
I do not believe that message is SPAM. It appears to be a legitimate service that Fido offers: Email-to-text or Courriel à texto. When someone sends an email to your phone number (firstname.lastname@example.org), the service can forward the email to your phone as a SMS. Those SMS (as well as the one shown) are sent from one of Fido's short codes with the 305XXXXX format. However, some phones might mistakenly display the first few digits as country or area codes.
The message asks to respond Oui or Yes because you would have to opt-in for the service.
That said, if you do decide to opt-in for the service, the emails sent to your phone number may be SPAM.
Hope this helps
