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.
Got this message in an SMS from +17094260578
(10001) Fido Mobile (289)*** ****
Here is your refund: fidomobile-support.com0.
Thing is Fido actually owes a refund so I clicked on link and took me to a fido page then redirected to an interac page, asked for security questions etc and then said an error occured.
I have since changed my password and security questions.
Just thought to send to the forum and sensitize people as well
Hello. I just received a bogus phishing text message from 1-267-782-3391, pretending to be FIDO.
The text says "(FIDONOTICE)" followed by "http://bit.ly/2YuivC" which redirects to the following website:
It looks clearly like a bogus version of the Fido site and is asking me to enter my banking details to receive a "refund".
I know this is obviously bogus but wanted to bring it to your attention, to prevent other, more naive customers from being scammed this way!
I just received a text from 'FIDO', to follow the link regarding being over-charged. Sorry, I blocked the number before taking a screenshot so the text disappeared, but the text was from the following phone number:403-607-0671 (I tried google searching the number first, so it was still in my history).
