Spam Moving from Email to Cell Phones

Spam is starting to move more and more from e-mail to the cell phone.

What can you do to protect yourself from spam text messages? First, if it gives you a message to return the call, don't call back. The number may be offshore, meaning you'll be charged big bucks.

Also, document everything. Write down the date, time, the message, all the information on the message. Then file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission online. It only takes a few minutes and it's easy.
