We definitely understand how annoying this can be. We're working hard with partners to reduce the amount of unwanted calls you receive.
When it comes to spam calls, we suggest being very vigilant and to not provide any personal information.
If you're using an Android device, you can block calls from certain numbers, by adding them to the device “Block Numbers” settings in Phone > Settings > Block Numbers.
If you have an iPhone, click on the Phone icon, click on "Recents" then on the "i" next to the phone number you want to block, then click on "Block this call" at the bottom.

On top of that, Fido has implemented Universal Call Blocking (UCB) that will block any incoming call that does not comply with North American or international numbering plans. UCB will not block incoming calls with compliant caller IDs.
You can report random spam/scam calls to the Canadian anti-fraud center, You can also find more info here:
We hope this helps.
A lot of the times, information is not given or provided to them, but rather leaked from a reputable service (e.g., Microsoft, Dropbox, etc.). Being vigilant won't help when our information is hacked, leaked, and sold from sources that we trust. Today, I received 6 spam calls and none of the numbers that called me were the same. However, they all have the same recorded automated voice. Blocking these numbers do not work when every spam number that comes my way are never the same.
Fido, do better. Add Call Control.
