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

i received a message from a number 219 267 1672 who claimed to be Fido, and gave me a site of Fido-Alert.net
to login my Fido account. I think it is a phishing website. Please watch out for this kind of fraud.

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

Hello Fido,

 

I've received a phishing text message from number (415) 549-3348. So just a heads up for anyone who is a customer and Fido to track them down. 

Their message contained this:

 

Hi it's Fido: your online access has been disabled due to an incorrect or missing information. Please login to your account as soon as possible to regain access of your account.

http:// fido-alert . net/ deactivated-account.php? id=9e3541739af4bb5f4bd51247964d2173 & number = <myphonenumber> 

^ Do not attempt to enter your information, I cut up the link for that purpose.

I received this text from 1-213-263-3682.  I didn't click on any links.  Went to my Fido account to see if I could get in or not.

Hello Maryb91,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Thanks for forwarding the info! You were right not to click on anything.

 

  They come up with so many different variations on that domain name; that's one more for the spam filter!

 

Cheers

Scam Text Messages

From +1 206 946 9265, message from account-security.org stating that Fido deactivated my online profile and asking me to log in through link they provided. Obvious scam. Not really sure who and how to report this to, so posting it here.
