Well this is new, at least to me. Today I received two text messages from "freelotto.com" telling me I'd won $2m.

I am with Telstra.

This is really annoying, now there is another way to be pestered by idiots besides email spam, Skype spam, phone telemarketers and junk mail in the post box.

Where will it end?

Here I was thinking it was a legit spam issue due to having an iPhone. It's just a spam text. Bah. Nothing new.

You forgot one!
I'm in business for myself, and I receive fax spam.

Yes I did forget that one, fax spam is really annoying, it wastes my ink and paper and they often come in the night so the phone wakes us up.
They are often travel offers, I always call their freecall number and tell them that I NEVER EVER deal with spammers.

they don't listen
