Got this text message yesterday from a shady outfit called “Cell Unlimited” (typos are theirs, not mine):
Appels Sortants Locaux et Interrubains Illimites a partir10$/Mois!
Unlimited Local and Outgoing Calls for 10$/month!
From: 514-291-7194 (4pm Nov. 30, 2007)
I have, of course, never even heard of this outfit, much less had any business dealings with them that would give them the impression that they could text-message-spam me.
I’ve requested an explanation and will update this post if I get one.
(For the curious, the company is an automatic callback service that turns outgoing calls into incoming ones so those with unlimited incoming call plans can get free minutes. The fact that it costs $10 a month makes me wonder if it’s really worth it for most people.)
