All Wireless users need to be aware of the possibility of SMS Text SPAM.

A different example, but not one our Wireless customers have reported receiving. Wireless user receives a text (SMS) message from a financial institution, indicating your account is locked.
The message provides an 888 phone number to “verify” the account. If you call the number, a message prompts you for your Social Security Number, Credit Card Number, and Driver’s License Number. This then exposes you to identity theft, or credit card fraud.

Your action: Just delete the SPAM SMS Text message.
