Sorry to start ANOTHER thread, but... this is odd.

  1. I just received spam via text message. I've never heard of anyone receiving spam via text message and I was wondering if anyone else has had that happen to them... ? I'm on the National Do not call list and it's really odd.

    Yep,it's happened to me quite a few times.
     

  4. It said, "DO YOU HAVE $10K+ IN CREDIT CARD DEBT? WE can CUT your DEBT by over 50 percent! Reply "YES" NOW TO RECEIVE OUR HELP.
    (cuturdebt.com-optout,reply:oops:ut)"

    I don't think it was him.

    Look at the very bottom, in the small print. It should say:

    "when you gonna let me tap that?"

    That's a sure sign it's him.
     
  6. Lol. Nope. not there. I've never given him my phone number, anyway. I don't think I'd give to any of the [DEL]wolves[/DEL] people on TB, anyway. It's best to keep things like that to yourself, eh? ;)
     
  7. [DEL]Yep, that's Keith. I get them once in a while, which I'm not too upset about, because they're a nice break from all of the "you look pretty when you sleep" texts. [/DEL]
     
  8. it happens to me ll the time! no one cares about the list here :mad:
     
  9. That's against the law. I used to be a telemarketer and I know the rules and stuff about it, because I had to. If someone calls a potential customer, regardless if they have no control over what numbers their boss gives them to call, and it's on the DNC list, that individual can be fined $2,000 for every time they call after the first time. They're allowed 1 time, even if you're on the list, because sometimes telemarketing companies run old numbers because they don't want to buy new ones.
     
  10. Oh that's [DEL]so true[/DEL] just wrong.
     
  11. [DEL]You were a telemarketer in India?[/DEL]

    That would have been 10times funnier if I didnt have to read it thru the Strikthrough.

    Its ok Mika, you can [del]get a rise out of me[/del] start a thread anytime, hun. ;)
     
  15. No, but I can't imagine the laws are much different. They may be, though... and it's sad if they are.
     
  16. Define, "Get a rise out of you". o_O

    It might be best if I didnt...

    varun, Maybe the personal numbers arent spamming you, but that your new number once belonged to someone else, and they are trying to text that person. Most time phone companies recycle unused numbers. I bought my ex-wife a phone back in the day, and she'd get calls from the phone company saying she owed $800, but it was in MY name and they were looking for someone named Robert Something.

    What kind of spam from personal numbers are you getting?
