hogabair,

Help has arrived! What short code number is sending these  text messages? Have you replied to these messages stating STOP ALL or CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION?

The SPAM message comes from

forgachraff@msn.com

$24.99 Official Ray-Ban Sunglasses Sale! ENDS TOMORROW! Best Gifts:

www.raybanfriday.net <http://www.raybanfriday.net/>

I did’t want to respond in case that caused our spam to mushroom from this unsolicited seller’s contacts. Not sure what short code number you mean.

Thanks,

Susan

Forward the message to SPAM (7726) and follow the instructions in the reply.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Nope, that doesn't work. I've done this and am still getting texts from emails.

If the sender sends the spam to 20 people at one time you can't forward the message.
