Re: Spam texts

When I try to forward a text to abuse@sprintpcs.com I get back a message that says "Your service does not allow sending to an email address. Msg 2135."

I have unlimited text and data. Why am I getting that error message?

Re: Spam texts

BOA spam messages have been annoying ALL our phones!!  Thought we had blocked them and was quite peaceful for a couple of days.... BUT that has already ended!

Re: Spam texts

I've been getting the spam from "BofA" as well as have several of my co-workers using sprint.  I forwarded the text but was told there was nothing they could do because there was no number for the sender.

Re: Spam texts

I have one question on forwarding now.  When I forward the message, I get a response that says to reply with the phone number.  These that I am getting are not from phone numbers, they are from e-mail address/domain names.  For example, the one received today was from my08@boa6.com.  When I respond with that info, I get a message that the sender could not be identified and to contact customer care.  Should I be forwarding to that e-mail address mentioned in the post from April?

Re: Spam texts

please forward those messages to  7726 (spam).   We are working to shut this type of phishing messages down.

Re: Spam texts

At least they used proper grammar.

This month, I've been getting the Bank of America (not really from Bank of America) spam messages.  It started as boa@infos.com, changed to boa@info1.com, boa@info2.com and so on.  I blocked info1 through info4.com domains.  This week, I then got @boa.com and the real kicker is today the spam came from something like my07@sprintpcs.com.  I am hesitant to block the sprintpcs.com domain even though most text messages from Sprint don't show up as that.  So I'm going to see if they continue through the weekend and if they do, I'll have to block each individually or block the entire domain if only the domain is the same on all the texts.  It's been pretty frustrating this month.

I'll also start to follow the advice of forwarding them along.  I wasn't aware that option existed.

Re: Spam texts

Which phone do you have? For Android, just long press on the message and choose "Forward".

Re: Spam texts

So how do you forward a text msg?  There is no "forward" option on my phone in sms messaging.

The past several days I've been getting a spam text each day, today three of them.. This last one is from familyfirst@voteoutbarackobama.com and has the number 312-569-0397 in the msg.
