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!

This definitely looks like a spam messages. You can check out this post on our Community for info on what to look out for in such messages.
If you provided your banking information, I would suggest contacting them ASAP to let them know and prevent any fraudulent activity.
Got this one today and have others that asked something different, but it's the first time they mentioned Fido Dollars when I believe Fido Dollars have been discontinued already.
The others have already been mentioned, such as saying my account was suspended or that I had a refund, etc.
