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

***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!

Hey @Mogsdad!

 

If you're able to send and receive text messages, you should have no issue forwarding this SMS to 7726 :).
 

This can be done on most devices by opening the message, pressing and holding the body of the message, then choose to forward and send it to 7726. Be careful not to click on the link by mistake.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

Hello, I just received a text message saying, 

 

"Fido sent you a transfer due to an error in your phone bill. Click here: http://mobile-host7456.com/"

 

and I get strong feeling that this is a scam. It is from the number 14184360346.

I believe I have received a text sent as a fraud from the number 3062616308.

 

The text says:

INTERAC: FlDO SoIutions lnc. sent you funds. Visit: www.requestfundlink.com

 

I have yet to click on the link, but any help in fraud recognition is helpful.
