More “Accident” spam texts – Ignore, report and ignore.

Just got another SPAM message from +44 7591 260388 saying that I’ve still not claimed for that accident I never had, as I wrote about here earlier this year.

Again, I’ve ignored it and would continue to advise others to do the same.  Replying with the word “STOP” as suggested in the text is thought to confirm your mobile number as being valid and active, opening the gates to yet more spam.

O2 SPAM prevention service

If you’re on O2, then you can flag it up wit them forward such suspicious unsolicited text messages to 7726, as per the advice on their website.  Thing is, my phone doesn’t have a “forward” function that I’m aware of for SMS, so I’m hoping they have the sense to block the number I quoted, not the number I sent it from!  Time will tell.
