    Is anyone successfully running a SMS spoofing service round here?

    ie: Sending a text message that looks like it has come from someone elses phone?

    Pretty evil but blackhat none the less! Imagine the havok you could cause!

    Ok, in the USA?

    I think it is still a legal grey area in Australia and Europe

    You can email a text message... I'm guessing if you change the headers of the email it will appear from a different number. The email is different based on the cell provider but it will be something like 9045551212@txt.att.net.

    Here is a list of providers and their transit email to send sms messages:

    Mate you are a genius!

    Have found this software - http://www.pocketgear.com/en/gbp/6239171,product-details,Diverse-SMS-relay.html

    Which may let me create a spoofing system with no overheads and pure profit

    Will keep u in the loop!
