I received a scam text message at about 3 am today (Sat, 11/17/12), from '6127509884', which would be Minnesota. Several others received the same exact message, same 'originating' phone number. This has happened before, with widespread contact of Vz customers.
I can't help but wonder: how much does Vz rake in by charging its HUGE customer base for 'receiving' these scams? And where do they 'really' originate?
