Someone had been trying to spoof calling using the same caller display as Fido number 18884813436. I realized it's a scam as soon as they asked me if I speak Chinese because it wasn't the Chinese Fido hotline. Later in the day they spoof call using the Chinese hotline 8668883436. I hope Fido is aware of this!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I got call from 18884813436 (who claimed to be FIDO Chinese hot line) and the person gave a detialed case and lured me to believe someone use my account to open a new phone card, which had received complained and CRTC is going to lock my cell phone number if I did not file a case with Police. I was checking the number they provided about CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) with correct public contact number 18772492782 and even a file number with case under my name.
Although finding suspicious I went as far as they connected me to 8659522180500 who claim to be Chinese Police station in Fujian quanzhou China. Then that was it. I was totally amazed by how the spoof could make up a case like such. I hope it catches FIDO's attention and gets more ppl aware this type of scam
Before these chinese fido spoof calls, I also got scam calls from someone who claimed to be China border custom from Shenzhen few months back, they also have some of my personal information like my legal name and all, but they lost me when they had my address wrong. About this Chinese Fido calls got me wonder if our informations were really leaked, because I switched to Rogers a month ago for 5G network and I no longer calls from this spoof number of Chinese Fido. And of course there are new scam calls after I switched to Rogers, this time is RCMP lol
