Hi,

I got caught by these sms.ac company too. They used my hotmail account to email all my freinds, without my consent.

Ever see SMS-TXT. I think that one is genuine...

Dan.

Thanks, B! I've been getting these emails and wasn't sure if they were for real or what. Delete! Delete! Delete!

Hope you're feeling well.

Ralphie

Like you really want more of me!

I was one of the people that signed up... it was all the way back in November, before any of this started. I do actually make money off of the pods I have created for them, but there are a few things you need to know about so that you don't inadvertently do something that will make you upset.

First, the only reason you may get messages from a bunch of people (or send them to friends) is if you tell SMS.ac to do so. You simply need to read carefully when you sign up. They have an option to send out invitations. This is a great tool for those that want it, and nothing new with online communities. If that's not what you want, however, just don't do it.

Second, they give you the option to receive text messages if you supply your cell phone number. Again, this is optional. You can easily click on the "Messages" link from your homepage, then the "Preferences" button, and set up all of your message preferences. Nothing is unsolicited. All of these things can be great tools for marketing any pods you create, but they are optional. The easiest way to market pods is through their current subscriber base, since they are already members. Just add some of them to your friends list and tell them about your pods.

My last few checks have been around in the hundreds, and going up each month... to around $600 for the last one... so it's definitely not a scam if you know how to use the system correctly.

I noticed that they actually have created their own blog to answer some concerns:

I hope the info helps!
