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!
Just a quick note: I just received a text saying that 'Fido Solutions Inc. sent you funds via Interac. Visit www.instansolutionsinc.com.'
I did not click on link as I think it is a scam. It is a scam, correct?
ps the # it came from is 1-306-262-1858
Welcome to the community!
Thanks for the information! That is most definitely a SPAM scam. You can copy and forward the message to 7726 (SPAM) for evaluation and hopefully added to the SPAM filter (see here).
Hope this helps

do do you guys have any information??
Hi anyone knows what is this text that i just received and if this is legit or spam .
Hi, it's Fido: Take advantage of our new 75$ promotion by linking your amazon account to your fido profile: www.interalert.info/amaz
I just wanted to report a surprisingly sophisticated phishing scam.
I received the following message from +14377772884:
"Hi, it's Fido: Take advantage of our new $75 promotion by linking your amazon account to your fido profile: [phishing link redacted]"
The phishing message seems pretty standard, the link looked sketchy and there were some grammar mistakes. The thing that caught me off guard was that it came from a legitimate Fido phone number. This was the same number that had previously been used to text me about my bookings with Fido technicians.
The link of course leads to a spoofed Amazon login page that will steal your credentials.
How could this happen? Seems very irresponsible of Fido to have this vulnerability.
Hi guys be carful of a scam that’s using Fidos number 399-9. I received one that read: Hi, it's Fido: You have received 53.45$ of overcharge.PLease click the following link in order to claim your funds
I have talked to Fido online and they said do not open the link that it’s a scam. They said Fido is working on it.
Today I've got text message from 3993 twice like this.
'Hi it's fido: you have received 53.45$ of overcharge. Please click the following link in order to claim your funds.
and interac link was there.
Is it scam message?
