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

***UPDATE***

 

Hey everyone,

 

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 Smiley

 

Thanks again for all your help!

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

Hello,

 

  From what I understand, the WhoCalled service had been discontinued as of June 8th (see here). I received this SMS today so either it's a glitch or I'm guessing SPAM.

Hope this helps :Smiley:

FYI,

I, like many, received a spam text posing as someone (“Ava”) from the Ontario PC party asking a polling question. 

The ph.no. was ‭+1 (343) 887-9931‬

Hey everyone, it looks like someone is sending fake text messages to people saying they have redeemed money for you. This looks pretty fake to me but I’m posting it here to get a reply that it is truly fake. Thanks

Please do not share your bank details. This is a scam.

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

Hello @HUAWEI313,

 

That is definitely a spam text, Fido would never send you an e-transfer.

 

We currently have a thread here for reporting spam messages and how you can report it to Fido.
