My First SMS Spam

I got an SMS message on my cell stating I'd won a trip to the Bahama's.

Needless to say this got my nasty, nefarious side active.

Contacted a friend at the AG's office and had him open up a call-out
port on their G3i. I then used the Centrex connection to patch in and
dialed the 800 number from the AG's switch.

When the woman answered the call I told her I didn't appreciate spam
on my cell phone when it was on my dime. She asks if I'd like to be
added to the do-not-call list and reads back my number and then
pauses. She asks if I'm calling from the AG's office to which I reply
that I was. Click.

Too much fun playing with telemarketing and spamming sleaze.
