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!
here's one that has me scratching my head. I can usually tell if it's legit right away .is this from Fido? Even I have to ask sometimes. 🤔
Hello Fido Customer ! Number :(604) 710-****. There seems to be changes to your account. Please verify here :http://fidoactivate.000webhostapp.com/
Right? Even though I knew it, I still thought twice about it. They're getting trickier to spot. Whenever you get one of these texts, don't ever click it. Always come here to check if it is legitimate. If it is, a mod or community member can always help. 👍
I received a text this morning at 3:40am from this number: 14184360346 with the message copied below-
Fido sent you a transfer due to an overcharged amount in your phone bill. Click here:
I'm strangely suspicious of this number since fido numbers tend to be short. I was about to accept it as I saw it when I woke up but it struck me as unusual. Is this a scam? I'm thinking it is but it would be good to know for sure.
