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!

@Cawtau your phone number seems to be quite popular! I'm receiving these too, but not nearly as much as you...

 

Thanks again for posting these; we're doing our best to make this stop.

Hey @ngcheck  , 

 

Don't feel stupid, it really happens to everyone and they are getting smarter and smarter with these messages. On our end, we're doing what we can to limit them. 

 

Did you take the appropriate measures to make sure your personal information is not used?
