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.

Hey @sivakumarpadala ,
I moved your post to this thread as it's super helpful!
The amount they put is random and not related to your account information, no worries.
Don't hesitate if you have any other questions
These messages rarely have any accurate information and are usually random attempts. You can check into your balance information by logging into My Account or dialling *28 from your Fido mobile device.
As for this message though, I would suggest reporting it as SPAM by following the steps in the Accepted Solution above.
Hope this helps.
Received a text from 613-770-3179 saying the following:
Hey, due to an error occured in your last phone bill, Fido Solutions has sent you a refund of $74.50 CAD. Accept your funds here: http://refun6smanagem3nt.com/officielfichier/
Is this legit or a scam??
I received a text from Fido saying that my account has been over billed in error and there is a refund, please click on this message. That took me to a website asking me to deposit online into a bank account. I stopped right there as I was'nt sure if Fido did really send the message. Upon checking my Fido account online, I don't see any such refund info. Did anyone else receive such text messages recently?

I got an text message from a number 1 416-356-8509 saying FIDO Solutions Inc: FIDO has sent you FIDO Dollars: <url removed> Collect your funds (60.45$CAD)!
Is this spam or phishing? Please let me know,
I received this text this evening:
Fido Canada Solution:

Fido has overcharged your Account (96.76$)
The number associated with the text is 1 (418) 490-2763.
I figured it was spam and deleted the text.
