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



Accepted Solution

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

***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

I have been receiving texts to click on a web site which I can not link to Fido. I believe it is some kind of scam. Just warning folks to be aware.

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

I got a fido text message refund #32828637 for

overcharges on passed bills. Is this a scam? Because

I don't think fido would send me any money owed

via text message. Are other users getting these

kind of cryptic texts?

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

Hello Nurani1,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

  Thanks for the information! You're right, that message is most definitely SPAM. The providers are doing all that they can to prevent SPAM SMS. You can help by forwarding these messages to 7726 (SPAM) (see here). Once audited, it will be used to augment the SPAM filter. Unfortunately, as fast as these messages get blocked by the SPAM filter, the spammers/scammers find new ways to bypass the filter.

 

Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
