Do not call

Just got a disappointing message from the FCC. You know those spam text messages? That you have to pay for? That tell you you just won a $200 gift card? The laws don't apply to them. Only if a text spam is sent from an e-mail address does it fall within the range of illegal communications. I guess it's going to take a while to catch up with the technology. Meanwhile, it looks like I won another gift card.
How about you?

My folks have been successful in getting their phone company to refund the charges on them.

I've got unlimited texting on Verizon. I don't recall getting any spam texts, but if I did, I wouldn't have to pay for it.

Now that I think about it, I wonder if Verizon has great anti-spam filters and I just never see this kind of garbage. I'm sorry you're having to deal with it.
