    Spam text messages - credit card debt crap

    Anyone else getting these?

    I've had 3 in the past month.

    Number = 5623087933

    "If you are struggling with your credit card payments and have more than $10k in debt, our program can lower your payments. Would you like to learn more?"

    ==========================

    This is ridiculous. I've blocked it on Verizon's site...but was wondering if anyone else is getting stuff like this?

    it can happen if you've ever entered your number at a website that has sold your information. in fact, it happens quite often.

    * Verizon Wireless: Log in at vtext.com. Under Text Messaging, click Preferences. Click Text Blocking. You’re offered choices to block text messages from e-mail or from the Web. Here again, you can block specific addresses or Web sites. (Here’s where you set up your aliases, too.)

    And sometimes you can be billed for this.

    A few months ago I noticed a $9.99 charge on my bill. I called Verizon to inquire about it and was told it was from a 3rd party. Like those online IQ tests where you have to enter your number to get the results and stuff like that. I never enter my cell phone number anywhere. I ended up getting the issue taken care of and my $9.99 back, but I also put a block on premium text messages to all three numbers on my plan. All it takes is someone to enter your phone number on those online ads for you to get billed.

    I had the same problem but it was 2-3 text messages/day and 2-3 phone calls. Someone by a different name filled in my phone #. Not sure if it was malicious or not. Anyway, after calling Verizon and getting them to remove the mssgs multiple times, I blocked all text messages to my phone. Oh well. I also have had to tell callers constantly to take me off their calling list, etc. They have pretty much stopped...for now.

    Thanks for this 640k! It may come in handy.

    I had to change my last cell number because of many texts from credit repair and loan companies. Some girl kept transposing her first few cell phone digits and kept giving these sites my phone number! Grrr. I was bombarded with texts and calls.

    And my old number was great - it ended in 4 zeros! xxx-0000.

    But that girl ruined it.

    I have received many spam texts for loans all pointing to websites below this message. If any attorney reads this and wants to help can the spam, please leave a way to contact you. I've never applied or used any loan services and started getting these text messages after getting the Motorola Droid and using applications.
