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

***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!

This old trick is still going around.

Hey @aw13

 

Thanks for flagging this as well.

 

I've moved your post to this thread so we can continue compiling example. Remember to forward it to 7726 (SPAM) as well so we can add it to our database!

Hey @Superman3

 

I'm sorry to hear that you were a victim of a scam. You would need to contact your bank immediately for anything related to your bank account. They would have a process in place and would be able to help you securing your account and funds.

 

Hope this helps
