    For 3 days now I have been getting spam text from each of this casino affiliate programs brands.. I reply 9 to stop and it continues.. Getting REALLY PISSED now about it too! I have NEVER played in any of these casinos nor have I been an affiliate here so how the hell did they get my # to continue to spam!

    Can you block the texting number (add to spam numbers) from your phone?
    I only have a basic samsung phone but it has this function.

    Oh wow, email is one thing (not right, but somewhat expected) but text, that's really crossing the line.

    That crap is much worse than email spam. Next thing they will do is ring on your door 10 times a day.

    Not surprising from this group though at all.

    No clue. It is not the number I give out. I give the business number, but this is my personal cell.

    [​IMG] - This vixen777 is a login I use if I am playing at casinos so I am sure this was sold and could be how my # was obtained.
    Then I got this lovely text again this am as you can quite early as well!!

    I block the # and they only just text me with a different #... I am getting pretty ticked off now and am ready to start reporting this intrusive abuse! My new husband was NOT thrilled with the 6:30 am text! Replying with 9 does not help

    Yep I have gotten multiple texts now from separate numbers, 972 area code. None are tailored to me (no username), so obvious spam from somewhere else. Besides, I don't give this number out regularly. Very few have it since I have a business number.

    It's why I refuse to give out my mobile to casinos, aff programs etc. Least with my landland I can screen incoming calls.

    It's even easier with a cell phone.

    A basic Samsung droid phone will keep a local list of banned numbers - only allow calls at a certain time - treat white listed numbers (those in your contacts) different from new numbers, completely drop blocked numbers etc.

    It takes a wee bit of time to set things up and go through the menus - but it is well worth it. My cheapie give-away phone has proved to be very smart during the latest rash of affiliate programs harvesting the iGB conference database. Very satisfied.

    I imagine a fancy featured 2015 phone or an apple "i-toy" has hundreds more fully formed features.

    And of course it's simple to get a new number.

    For me changing the number wouldn't be an option, mainly cause i would feel as if i am letting them win...

    Can't you block all messages from +972? I assume your AMs from Israel will find a way to reach you ;)
