Spam via SMS?

  1. I've just started receiving this crap on my phone in the last week - first was this:
    And last night this (they always arrive in the middle of the night...):
    Now I agree that "Hassan" doesn't sound very Nigerian, but I'm still a bit wary of that one.
    But what's really pissing me off is that I can't claim my million pounds because that's not a valid email address!

    Seriously, anyone else just started getting this crap? I can't think of anything "new" I've given up my number to recently...

  2. Google your phone number and see if it comes up with anything, it might give you a clue.
  3. I've started getting spam on the mobile telling me I've won 10 million pounds in a UK lottery.

    Wouldn't normally care, except they come at 3am.
  4. I keep getting spam as well, usually from someone named Tweetster :rofl:
  5. Or stop writing it on the walls of public bathrooms :p
  6. See I thought of that, but my number has been on those walls for years - why start harrassing me now, and more's the point: why haven't I had any takers?
  7. None of your Nigerian scam SMS's, but I'm getting random crap from 'Minipoll', can't work out who they are or how to get them to f*ck off.
  8. Maybe one of those bathrooms has been taken over by a financial firm - and they've misinterpreted what you meant by "looking to receive a large wad".....
  9. ...yeah, yeah!.... you might like to reply to some of 'em now and again!.... [-(
