Someone recently succeeded in pretending to be me and ordered a new tablet with my account. I was told that someone from the fraud department would call me back in 72 hours but I have been waiting for more than a week. This is concerning and I would like to know why this process is taking so long and who I should contact for support .
After a long wait to speak with someone from the Fido Fraud department, I was finally contacted by someone. I was given no information about what happened. Apparently according to Fido policy, I cannot be told if someone had used a piece of fake ID to access my account (or worse, stolen a piece of my ID). I cannot know which store or which city this occurred. I cannot know if data usage location from the stolen device indeed suggest that this might be someone I had met before.
Fido collects so much information about us all the time, but fails to disclose information during critical times which can help protect myself in this situation.

It's important for us to protect your information. However, we can only give you the information we have on our end.
I would like to take a look at what was discussed so far concerning your account.
I'm sending you another PM to get this looked into. Talk to you soon.
