    I've been getting these texts lately:

    300 - 1,000 Are Available as Fast as the Next Business Day. All Credit OK! Get Lender Approval Here: http://ck5.co/OOwTBAA
    reply STOP to stop sms

    Looks like someone is trying to make it look like it's coming from here. I didn't click the link.

    I don't think there is anything that can be done about that... spammers can send email (spoof) from pretty much any email addy out there.

    Wait, just re-read your post, they are sending you text? So they have your phone number?

    Yeah, it appears so.

    Do you have it in your db somewhere? Could they have gotten it from here?

    No, I don't have anyone's phone number saved. Did you ever use your number in a post?

    Its probably just someone accessing my browser history or something. Unlikely it has anything to do with security here.

    Just thought I'd bring it up just in case it happens to someone else, which would indicate something with the site.
