Invest in Penny Stocks?

January 24th, 2014

We received this spam text message on our phone.

Pros:
– It’s clearly marked as SPAM, so we guess there’s a point for honesty.
– The link does simply take you to the sign-up page for a newsletter about pennystocks. Again, honesty.

Cons:
SMS spam is illegal in the United States. This is perhaps the most obviously spammy SMS spam message ever created.

It’s an honest ad, we suppose, but clearly an illegal one. If you get SMS spam, you can report it to TINA.org or to the FCC.
