Text Message Spam
Forenoon watch, 8 bells (12:15 pm)

I received a text message spam today from 7793482905 that contained the following message:

RE: Congratulations: You have been preselected to receive a $100 Target Gift Voucher! Please call 888-511-9334 to claim. To end msgs reply Stop.

My reply was in two parts:

AT&T won't do anything about text spammers. You can't block them, but (supposedly) they have to respect you when you reply Stop.

I prefer to take it a bit further and file a compliant with the FCC.

I doubt that any person will actually see my message, but just in case, I like to give them fair warning.
