Cell Phone Companies Help Scammers
You can now be charged a monthly fee from your cell phone if you get a spam message that says something like, “Respond to this or we’ll charge you a monthly fee for something.” The phone company not only knows who is sending us spam text messages (which is illegal), but they are charging us money unless we “opt out” of the charges. They hope we won’t notice the charges on our phone bill. This has been going on for over two years now.
