    I don't post much (at all), just browse once in awhile but i figured you blackhatters could help me out.

    I don't use AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) but they have a feature where you forward IMs to your cell phone (I'm sure most know this). Well anyways, I received a text from my friend's screen name the other day, and it said "yo check out my new pics" or w/e. So I was like ok, and I clicked the link and long story short, now people are texting me saying stop sending me IMs saying to goto these "dumb" sites.

    I texted my buddy back and he said he had no clue what the message was about that came from his screen name but that he was getting them too.

    So now I'm thinking this link I clicked triggered my screen name to send out some sort of spam to my buddy list.

    I really have no clue how to stop it. Any thoughts?
