    You are just making somebody money, they would probably earn about $1.90 from after you enter winning code 555.

    I hate it when people abuse the marketing system! When one of us goes and uses these very black hat marketing methods, it makes it more difficult for the legitimate marketers and dilutes the effectiveness of a great marketing platform - text message marketing.
