Default Beware of SMS.AC

I just found out about the fradulent marketing practices SMS.AC

This company operates an online chat community which spams anyone in
your your online address book with messages to join them.

The spams speak of a great FREE community that allows to chat.

Once enrolled it asks your your phone number and sends SMS's friend
invites and chat messages to you, but charges you $0.25 per message
through your verizon bill. All this get billed, without ever informing
you or asking for permission to be charged.

I have reported this company to the FCC, but beware of initiating any
activity with them as these invites, chats, etc. quickly add up and
cause huge verizon bills.

The company is:
7770 Regents Road, STE 113-405
San Diego, CA 92122 USA
phone: 1-619-696-1300
