Scam calls with Fido Number

I just received a call showing Fido solutions number and when I answered it thinking it was from Fido a machine came on with a recording in another language.

Normally I have been blocking scam calls but I cannot block Fido.

Just wanted to report this call.

Hello @Denange,

 

Unfortunately, no one is immune to the number spoofing, at this time there is no way to stop these calls.

 

The good news is that the carriers are working to implement new technology (STIR/SHAKEN) by September-2020 To combat these number spoofing and hopefully put an end to these types of calls.
