A little over a week ago, Verizon subscribers were receiving spam text messages coming from numbers spoofed to look like they were the recipient’s actual phone number. Chris Welch, of The Verge, reported on the issue and was also a recipient of one of the spam messages. The messages read “Your bill is paid for March. Thanks, here’s a little gift for you:” with a link to various websites. In Chris’s case, he received a text message with a disguised link to a Russian State TV network. Others received a link taking them to take a fake survey for a free gift.T-Mobile Customers Report Receiving Spam Messages Similar To Verizon
