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 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.
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:

^ Do not attempt to enter your information, I cut up the link for that purpose.
Just received a spam/phishing sms.

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.
