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!
Welcome to the Community!
Thanks for flagging this, that message is indeed a scam.
We will never send a text message to you from a 10 digit number. You can delete it, I've just reported the number
Thanks again and great job on catching this!
Some family and I got this (remove underscores for real URL):
From +1 (226) 318-7299
