Random text with YouTube links attached and "James..." below. Didn't click on the links.
Just received a text message that says:
##### (a five-digit number) is your verification code for Yahoo.
I don't think I have a Yahoo account (may have set up an email account a long time ago but have not used in several years), so this seems strange to me.
Received a message as follows:
From Larisa / Hello! Iren send it to you - www.ksmomenumucivopr.coma"
Not sure were this is came from and how they got my number, but it is most definitely a scam. I have deleted it from my phone.

Seems to be a syndicate using multiple numbers all of which are scams and costing a fortune to receive. O2 shrugged their shoulders and say there is nothing they can do.
Claims to be Apple are more than likely false. This is a scam.
Hey what updating E

I received a text saying "You were victorious in this week's drawing"
I didn't try STOP but I phoned EE I told them I would not be paying for any charges incurred against this number. (When I get my monthly bill, we'll see)
They gave me this number: 01244 459 699 for the company. The lady on the end of the phone was cooperative and sounded as though she was from Eastern Europe, though whether the scam is based there I obviously couldn't tell. She said I would be removed....I will report back

It is good that they can look debit card payday loans when pressed against the wall. If you are found to be a suitable candidate for advance payday loan, then you will not have to wait days before you see the money that you have in your bank account. Fraudulent companies only care about profit more from you.Banks are in business to make money and most are not ready, you just give a large amount to anything, but your word to repay the loan with interest.

In addition, no faxing payday loans is the duration of a moment also very short. You must choose a lender that offers direct deposit.It is simply imposs
