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 got this message when I was in US saying that Fido overcharged me, well I'm clear about my fees towards Fido, so I'm not responding to it.
FYI here is the message:
Dear F°I°D°O client, we are sending you back 75.5Cad due to a current misapplied fee on your account. Click here: https://fido75online.com/
Just received an IMPORTANT notice from FIDOSOLUTIONS INC. Please read carefully: https://rb.gy/co89ab
When you read the text it says our account was over paid on March, 2019. Then immediately it switches to a web page asking for banking information. The phone number the message came from was 1 250 618 4417. There was no name on the text message.
And no....we didn't reply or give our banking information.
Just want to alert fido community of a recent fraud message I got over sms (from a 10 digit number). The message claims that fido charged 158 dollars more than they should and are giving it back. Asking further to share their bank details. Thought to put it out here for everyone.
