Text Message Spam

Buona sera. Here's another public service from Stormbringer Productions. My burn phone received a text message from someone I do not know. I don't like that. It's a burn phone, for crying out loud, and I don't want many people to have the number, capice? Besides, this kind is a pay-per-minute thing.

So, what to my wondering eyes did appear? A miniature message from 1-702-683-4036: "Today we can let you borrow 1000.00! Its easy and takes 5 minutes to get approved by a licensed lender-www.[fuggedaboudit].com."

I got Hal the Hacker involved, and he saw that it came from a wireless caller in or near Las Vegas. (Also called "Lost Wages", and that's exactly what this jerk is trying to do to my wages.) As near as we can figure it, this bunch of spammers grab several burn phones, spam out text messages to send you to their Website. No need for them to worry about getting their accounts deleted, because their dirty work is done and they just move on to another lot of cheap burn phones.

Well, you're warned. You may even want to do a preemptive block on 1-702-683-4036 so you don't get bothered. But then, that number may be trashed already. Piltdown Superman wants to sic his pet Archaeoraptor on them. I should let him.
