This is just a FYI. The article I linked to is talking about sms contest scams. Good info about turning them into the carriers.

    Have been seeing almost daily ones for bestbuy gift cards too - its extremely frustrating too since I keep my phone by my bedside and these messages come in night and day, as much as I would love to turn my phone off I have a lot of concerning family matters going on that don't allow for that privilege.

    Unfortunately reporting them doesn't stop them from them still being sent to you - be nice to get an app that only allows SMS messages to come in from white listed numbers or at least gave you the option to enable some kind of feature like that

    Wow, what a scam! It's good that Walmart is on top of this and even has a text message service to use to report these. Yes, the mobile community is going to continue to experience these kinds of things and we have to be careful.

      It is not Walmart with the report site. The phone carriers have put together the system, so they can kick the scammers off.
