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

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

Hi

I got a message from +18192387023 yesterday saying that, " An overcharge has been made on your past bills. See invoice 1345.online to claim your reimbursement of $63.53. Fido#0321"

Is this a spam message?

Hey @Hetashukla ,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

That message is not from us, so I moved your post here since it's about that subject. 

 

You can refer to the solution to this thread to report it as SPAM Smiley

I just received a spam message pretending to be from Fido. I've forwarded it to 7726 but, I am also posting it here for people to be aware of.
