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.
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
Thanks again for all your help!
I have received one message from the number 438-409-6525 regarding some refund. It says
Please confirm the link to claim your refund from FIDO. Visit: http://126.96.36.199
Is it a legit message or its a scam?
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!
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
