Spam Message From Own Number



Tonight I received a spam message from my own number. It read:

“Free Msg: Your bill is paid for March. Thanks, here's a little gift for you:”

The link leads to 1TV, a Russian state-media live feed. This spam message began showing up on the Verizon Community on the 28th of March, so it is a recent spam message campaign (here). Someone on this forum noted that the message was logged on their Verizon account. This would not happen if this was a case of caller-ID spoofing. Has anyone else on the Verizon network via Visible received a similar message? Comments are appreciated!



This is common on the Verizon network. Verizon is aware of the issue and woefully incapable of doing anything. Sounds like you clicked the link - it may be wise to do a full factory reset or Spyware search on your phone now.
