File A Complaint Against Text Spammers

What really pisses me off about text spammers is that they send out their spam with no regard as to whether or not the recipient has to pay for the texts they receive. If you have a texting plan with your cellphone provider that allows a certain number of texts before you have to start paying for them, receiving text spam could cost you some money.

It doesn't matter how much it costs, it only matters that you have to spend your money because some jerk wants to either sell you something or is trying to swindle you in some way.

I have only today become aware that you can file an official complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) against text spammers. Simply go to this link
https://esupport.fcc.gov/ccmsforms/form1088.action
fill it out and include all communications you've had from this text spammer in a file that you can attach to your complaint. If you sent a reply to an email address provided in the original text and you received a reply back, copy and paste the email you received (including headers) in the file you're attaching.
