    Spam Texts from SMSCaster.com??? WTF???

    So this morning I received a text message from 4072536041 that reads:

    "by SMSCaster.com:
    Computer Repairs For
    Less New Customer 50%
    OFF. We offer A+ service
    & the best deals in town!
    (407) 535-6669 Now
    hiring techs."

    Has anyone been spammed like this before?
    This really pisses me off!!!

    How do I go about insuring that this doesn't keep happening?
    Is this a new trend?
    How do we fight back?

    Which text messaging app do you use? If you use Handcent, you can blacklist the number and not receive them anymore

    but that's not really solving the problem, just kinda ignoring it, know what I mean?
    i was trying to think of something a little more diabolical
    teach them a lesson for messin' with the greevedogg....

    Did you download or buy an app from this company and not read the fine print. This is where the "spammers" hide little things like permission to contact you via text or whatever. If you want to get back at them, file a claim with the Better Business Bureau, and the Do Not Call List
