It's absolutely spam

This quote says it all:


Richard Cox, the chief information officer for Spamhaus, a nonprofit antispam organization based in Britain, countered: "It’s absolutely spam. It's an unsolicited text message. People who received it didn't ask for it. That's the universal definition of spam."


Even worse than an unwelcome email message is one that comes when you're busy and sounds like it's from someone you know.
