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!
Despite being very careful with not distributing my number to any Tom, **bleep** and Hary marketer -- I was surprised to see this text on my android device today.
Is it me or Android really has this darker side?
I had an iPhone for five years and never ever received such weird/phishing text.
Hello @Branimir45 Welcome to the community!
That is no doubt a spam text you can forward it to Fido by sending it to 7726 (SPAM). There is no charge for that and it will help Fido preventing these kinds of spam.
I received this text last night. I assume it's fraud, as I don't see anything about Fido Rewards on the site.
"Fido Rewards: Fido Solutions has sent you an e-Transfer. Click here to deposit funds: bit.do/fidoemtfunds"
I assume I can just ignore and delete?
Welcome to the community!
Yes, that does indeed sound like SPAM! Thanks for flagging it!
You can copy the message and forward it to 7726 (SPAM) for evaluation (see here).
Hope this helps!
