    I’ve been getting similar messages except from Franklin Bank recently. 2 yesterday, and two on Friday, but I’m with T-Mobile

    Couple of my coworkers have been getting the same messages all last week. At least two a day….They’re both with Sprint…

    Dear Telcos. Please. For fuck sake. If you’re going to charge me to recieve text messages, let me filter it down to people I actually want to get messages from.

    Are we sure this isn’t just another ploy for ATT to get us to watch American Idol?

    I’m from Chicagoland and with U.S. Cellular and got this same text last Friday. Mentioned a bank account had “unusual activity” and to call an 800 number. So happens that I have an account with the bank they used, so I paused for a second, but then realized my bank doesn’t know my cell, nor would the message come from a non bank email “Carlos@jenark.net”. Total scam, but I don’t pay for incoming texts so, whatever.

    A friend of mine I work with in Cedar Rapids, IA says she is a Sprint customer and got it from “Metabank”
