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

Hi,

 

I received a text message earlier from 1-306-261-6018 claiming to be Fido.

The message says:

“Due to an error on your last bill, we issued you a credit of 30$ + your funds:

https://wireless-fido.app.link/message”

 

When I click on the link it brings me to a page with the server “fi-do-claim.co  and it says “deposit your money” being $133.53 “from Fido” with the Fido slogan of the little yellow house and everything and below it says “select your financial institution” with a list of different bank institutions. 

 

I am wondering if this is a scam??? 

 

Hey @AlexandraBarnes

 

We moved your post to this thread as it fits right in!

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

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.

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?
