I already wrote about premium text messaging fraud. I have another problem now. I’m getting spam text messages.
I don’t have a text messaging plan. Each spam text message costs me $0.20! I’m getting 1-2 per month now. It’s enough to be annoying, but not so much that I want to waste an hour on the phone with Verizon to block text messaging.
Even more offensive, the spam text message costs the phone company almost nothing, but I’m being charged $0.20 each!
I used to be able to block all text messages from the webpage. Now, you have to call Verizon to enable the block.
Text message spam is annoying. Not only is it spam, but I have to pay for it!
