Unwanted text msgs after registering

Beware of these very crafty people.

I registered with this internet site only yesterday to join the forum on mobile phones.

I opted to receive NO TEXT MESSAGES on any subject whatsoever and already I have received junk mail via text message, which I have never had before. As if that wasn't bad enough one of the messages is a dirty filthy obscene joke

When I complained I got the reply that I had opted to receive a horoscope, funny stories and dirty jokes. This is totally untrue. Before I registered I double checked that every radio button was set to "opt out"
I have a pay as you go mobile phone for emergencies, and no way would I pay 25p to receive a stupid text message.

I doubt if you will ever get them to stop. The only thing you can do is get another phone with a new number, put this down to experience and be more careful next time.

Whatever protest you make will firm up their resolve to bombard you with more rubbish.

Please tick if you think this resolved.
