    i've just got a spam

    this morning, when i came to my office i just receive a msg through my phone said that, "do you want to know how to get free messages?" from +60148936115. Do you guys think that it is a spam or just sending message by mistake?

    Could be either spam or someone accidentally sent to wrong number. Its a local number, if you are interested, you could call and see who answers.

    I've seen SMS from +62... numbers (Indonesia) which say you have won a prize or some money etc. Those ar spam. Haven't seen from a local number like the one you got.

    Since you got the SMS from 019..., I suggest you call the TM/Celcom helpline and make a complaint. Ask them to check who the number belongs to and take action on them for sending such SMS.

    Don't reply in the way you did. These people may turn around and say you sent them vulgar SMS.

    Guarantee it is spam. Complain to your telco. They can trace the message.

    If you think a message is very offensive, eg. hate, racist, life threatening, etc, just make a police report.

    Have you made a report before? The most you will take is an hour or two.
    The reason I suggest him to make a police report is because now the authorities has the informations of every phone number (even prepaid ones) and the spammer can be warned/caught/etc.

    I delete from my phone less than 5sec,I made report 1 or 2 hours.I rather waste that 5sec.
    Note that 1or 2 hour without waiting time.

    1 or 2 hour includes waiting time. Maybe the police station in your area is extremely slow.
    I believe that a report should be made to teach the spammer a lesson, so that you will not receive spams from him/her again. This can also servers as a warning for other spammers.

    Do you know that spammers are procecuted and sued in the court at the US? We should follow suit.

    This is about law and order, not sports. Compare apple to apple, not apple to oranges.
    For this situation, we should learn from them. These spammers should be charged in court as they are guilty. This will also serves as a warning to other spammers which will ultimately reduce their numbers and gradually they will go "extinct"!
