Got the following spam message:
i love you jhanu
I always get texts from them and they're just a bunch of spaces
It's a scam. They will try to get your credit card info. They have been trying to get me to reply for over a year. Do NOT reply to texts from this number or from Western Union. Western Union does not send texts.
If you receive a message claiming to be from Verizon, and offering you a credit or a chance to win something, be aware that the website you are sent to is not a Verizon site. It is a phishing site designed to get your MyVerizon credentials (username, password, also SSN and billing pin). Do not visit the site.
Daily message at 8AM is Bible verse, different verse each day. Anomyous messages not appreciated. God is not sending them.
Congratulations, you are one lucky customer getting a credit applicable to your next month bill.
In April I received two texts saying "Your iCloud Keychain certification code is..." I called Apple and they said I hadn't had any odd activity on my account, so I figured it was just a scam. Now it's October and they sent three more texts.
Gave us a partial address in another state but it said it was sent by my number to my husband's cell and I didn't do it
Haven't tried STOP yet as only just realised messages are from 60147 which i was told when i rang 3 .....i am changing my mobile co anyway as 3 have been the worst ever. On to them now and hopefully they can block at their end then i'll go back to t mobile & get them to block as well. Need to check online a/c but who has the time to do that?!
My investigation findings: these financial alerts come from Walgreen's Bank Financial Prepaid Credit card services so (you are / I am) getting alerts for every transaction the holder of this card is making. Walgreen's Bank Financial's customer service number is 1-888-924-2653. If you call them and pass their auto answer system (got to put in at least 3 bogus card numbers before you get to a live person), the live person was very nice and apologetic and removed my number from getting these alerts. I just did this, so we will see what happens
STOP, did not work. Now I'm getting a second one also claiming B of A, concerning "my visa debt card". Same premis, different POS-scammer...efum all
Been charged £1.50 per message even though I've never subscribed to anything or ever replied to any txt with a short code.
Cannot stop these sending me messages even though i HAVE REPLIED STOP
Been charged for something i knew nothing about!!!!
I posted my I phone 6 for sale and he told me he was in the hospital and hoped I wasnt I a scam I was ask 600$ he offered me 800 usd that automatically made him fishy to me like who says usd when we r in the U.S. already... I googled the number and found this I told him I did so he told me I must be looking up the wrong number and was very pushy
It says my acount was shut down do to hackers.

The Tesco competition I entered for as soon as I entered the above code 3100 the page disaapeared. Please help me stop this rough company that wanted to be billing my phone number with 4.50p per week.
I receive a text to my Google Voice number stating my verification number is ******. I believe the scammer tries to get a reply from you, and when you ask why you received this message, the scammer preys on the fact that you believe they are Google and will provide them with actually email account information for your own security. The solution would be to just ignore/block the number. See the link below for a user that was tricked.
how can it be stopped
Suddenly got this text.
Haven't done anything about it
Welcome to the Marketplace! Reply help for help Stop to cancel.
Bombarded by these companies, how do you stop them! Arggghhh! Help somebody please....

I claim these are legit texts from CapitalOne credit card.
I claim these are legit texts from American Express credit card.
I claim these are legit texts from Hertz rental car. I get them whenever I rent from Hertz.
I get confirmations of Dentist Appts from my dentist. My phone also pops up a message saying that I may incur charges for replying. I don't reply and they just call to confirm a few days prior to the appointment. Texting STOP did result in me getting a messaging saying that I will no longer receive messages from Lighthouse 360 reminders.
