    Alright so this just came in:

    "Your mobile has won you 200,000 pounds in 2012 UNITED NATIONS INT'L MOBILE DRAW. To claim your prize, send your name and email to unlivedraw@live.com"

    I'm in Pakistan and mobile spam is not that common here yet... It shows the number as "CCUK"

    Now tell me.... who you of you fuckers sent this :p

    I receive 1 text a month and 1 automated phone call per month. The text messages are mostly something like "You've been chosen for a best buy gift card... go to website.comm to claim." My girlfriend received a similar text. I shook my head in disgrace when she asked me if it was legit. I almost had to break up with her if she followed through with the offer. Thank you BHW member for nearly ruining my relationship.

    This thread reminded me that I do have a spam box in my mail. Actually, I have stopped checking it because those fuckers always mail that I have won a billion dollar lottery. It seems someone is trolling you and you're being trolled. :D Anyways my existing unread spam mails are 80. Let me give you guys an overview of some mails. :

    LEUNG CHEUNG: I need your assistance to transfer $22,500,000.00 Dollars from Hong Kong. You can take 50% of the actual amount, once the transfer is done.

    Donna Knight: We officially want to inform you that an Inter-Switch ATM-Card Valued at $1,000 000.00 USD only has been accredited in your favor by the UK Inter Switch ATM Organization, United Kingdom.

    Poonam: Please send your pics to me. 25 girls are waiting to marry you.

    I can't express my happiness. :D I am a multi-billionaire and there are 25 girls waiting to marry me.

    Wait a minute, polygamy is illegal in India and how will I receive such a huge amount in my bank. { Dil ke armaan aansuon mein bikhar gaye }

    I randomly get texts from one of those "Get Free Ringtones at this link!" type of text spam. But I tend to ignore it as I have unlimited texting and only get 1-2 of those messages a month. Maybe if I start getting them more often or getting spam texts from other companies I'll deal with it, but for now ignoring it is the easiest method for me.

    I get them almost 3-4 times a day lol. I dunno where they got my number, I never used them online. It seems that the various offline companies sell a lot of our information. I do have some doubt that the supermarkets are doing that. I got my first spam call that way.

    I get these about 2-3 times a month. I'm in the uk and mine all seem to be about insurance type offers and pensions.

    When I get them they always say at the end reply STOP to opt out. From what I've read don't reply as they know the number is live and you will get a lot more.

    I hardly ever see this since I changed numbers a couple years ago. It is a good idea to save these and the good spam emails; just in case you want to try their method at a later date and have a reference (or laugh).

    how legal is this in the uk and usa i don't mean the scams but sending bulk text messages i could probably get hold of a bulk messager and come up with a semi legit method.
