Hi, it's Mark from Alberta Proud.
We are reaching out to ask, do you support the Carbon Tax?

Why is Fido giving my phone number to these organizations? Is this even legal?
Hey @Hdlsh63726! Welcome to the Community!
I can assure you that Fido doesn't share any of your information to third party organizations. While we can't know exactly how it was done in this case, your phone number can be accessible from many sources. Many services you may be subscribed to can share your phone number freely under certain security settings.
If your device allows it, we recommend that you block the number directly.
Hope this helps!
