    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?

    Suggest that you install SMSFilter and enter that number.

    I highly doubt that Verizon is responsible for, or even approves, these messages... most likely these are from some type of marketing company or even a scammer and are generated by a computer and sent to a list or range of numbers. It makes no sense that Verizon would support or approve this, there is no benefit and nothing but a negative to them in both a business and technological standpoint.

    You can have VZW block premium texts that try to hook one into hidden fees. Why they allow these to start with is troubling. Chris
