    Just got another unsolicited SMS. This one is from a number 19996111 and
    says:

    "FreeMSG. You have a secret admirer! Reply CHAT to this msg to be
    connected. For help call 1300885902. Average msg cost $2.70."

    Looks like I'll have to stop giving out my mobile number as a contact
    point whenever I do business or whatever.

    Last Xmas I got an SMS with some lame Xmas joke. That was billed to me
    at around $5. I complained to Telstra who reversed the charge.

    I'll check my "calls yet to be billed" online billing service to see if
    this one has cost me too.

    I also received this message last week. What a joke, but I guess some
    desperate losers will reply and make it worth while for them.

    And they are refunding them all automatically, so you might get a double
    credit

    If it's SPAM then that is NOT the forum (TISSC) to file a complaint.

    Sorry. Life sux.

    A more useful site to ponder mobile SMS spam.

    Deceptive content with a Premium SMS service.
    Last I heard, TISCC were expecting to get authority over SMS as well as
    1900.

    Re: Unsolicited SMSes

    I got this message quite a few months ago now. I called the enquiry number
    in the message, and they called me back after I left a voicemail message.
    They actually told me the website that the person supposedly sent it to me
    from. However I would say this is just a front, and they are sending the
    message out en-mass to random people.

    Best thing to keep in mind with this kinda thing is that a charge can't (or
    shouldn't) hit your account unless you send/reply to a SMS or sign up for
    something on a website.
