Phishing SMS msgs
I have been using T-Mobile's prepaid service for about 3 years & have never really had any problems with them until now. For the past 2 months I've been getting, & paying for, annoying spam/Phishing text msgs posing as various banks which I have never done business with.
After contacting T-Mobile, i discovered this is something that other T-Mobile customers have been getting on their phones too & was informed this is some type of new "SMSphing" scam which i, being a prepaid account, get stuck paying for each scam msg these lowlife pieces of dog crap send & of course T-Mobile says they can't do much about it.
BTW, my cell number has NEVER been given out to anyone. It's only used for emergencies. I've never used the internet on it & this is the first time in the 3 yrs I've had the phone that I've been getting these types of phishing msgs.
I don't know if changing the number will do any good because I suspect this is an internal problem on T-Mobile's service & really don't feel like wasting anymore money with them since they can't seem to do anything to fix this problem.
