Diablo® III

SMS Spam Really?

I just got a SMS spam saying i won a prize from wallmart...

Really Blizzard, you give my mobile number to spam company?

That make 12yr i am with same mobile company, and i never ever got 1 SPAM, now i give you my number for your "authenticator RMAH" and i receive spam?

So let me see, 1$ per listing + 15% AH fee is not enough, you also need sell the mobile number to spam company.

Disgusted...

I am sorry but this is outrageous, i have TO PAY for these spam, is not like i have a mobile plan and can receive this crap for free...

Now i probably have to change my mobile number to avoid extra billing on my cell phone, and this mean 50$, Thanks you Blizzard, very very smart...

What about text messages or "cellphone spam"? Is it covered?

Yes. With the new law's technology-neutral approach, all forms of commercial electronic messages can be treated the same way. That means that unsolicited text messages, or cellphone spam, is addressed.


Can be sure my cell company is not selling my phone number.
