receiving "star" messages in the notification bar

Just started to receive a "star" in the notification bar, when I drop down the notification bar to check it, they are random messages from  "you won..." to "meet singles in your area".  Is anyone else having this problem?  if so, how can I stop it.  My son's phone "samsung moment, is doing the same thing.

When you tap on these messages does it look like you are in the Text messaging app? if you press menu which options are there?

My evo 4 g also does this but its not constant.

Maybe make list of add on apps to see what's been downloaded in common.

It opens the browser and tries to load a page.  I did remove an app my son downloaded today.  He aslo downloaded this on his phone and was receiveing those messages.  So hopefully that will take care if it.    thank you.

I had that show up when I downloaded an app for watching TV shows. It stopped when I uninstalled the app.
