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!
I just got a text message from the number +17092970485 saying : "FIDO Communications Partneship hassent you Interac E-transfer Refund Rewards, Please Accept or Decline the transfer below : http://fidomobility-rewards.com"
It looks very suspicious as Fido would inject any discount on my balance and not asking me to connect with my bank credentials.
I assume this is a scam but i just wanted to confirm and flag this trap.
Welcome to the Community!
I went ahead and moved your post in this thread here as it seems to fit well. You are correct in your assumptions and this message is not from us. If you can forward us this spam SMS to 7726, we'll make sure it gets to the right people to look into this.
You can also read more about these kinds of messages right here.
I received a txt msg that my online account was deactivated and that I have to go to http://www.validation-comptes.com/ to unlock it.
Please be aware of this, the site is not an official Fido website and it is most likely to be a phising scam.
