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

Re: Thread for reporting SMS spam

***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!

I have recieved a text message from 1-403-462-9061, letting me know that fido has an Entract e-Transfer of $40 for me. and gave me a link of bit.do/interacCAhKV2.

I am sure this is a spam.

Hey @Vidupe!

 

I moved your post to this thread since we had one going on about the same topic Smiley Looks like that's a SPAM SMS. I invite you to report it by forwarding it to 7726 and please don't provide your personal information!

Just received a phishing text claiming to be Fido about refunding an overage on my last bill. Obviously didn't click included link. Just thought someone should know.
