Imagine clicking this link today, and having more fun this Labor Day! Accept Here: http://370.bz/3/0568-106JQU Thank You!
Would get about 7 to 10 of these a day at 1 to 2 hour intervals. Topics range from loans, E-wallets, free cash, unnamed offers, requests for signature, credit checks, etc. Texted 'STOP' and got this reply:
You have been opted out of all subscriptions: HyprData.tv. No more messages will be sent.
Link goes to a different loan page every time. Got two of this exact message within the same minute.
