Update on Finnish SMS Spam Case Posted by Jarno @ 09:55 GMT

We checked for updates on the Mobile Tube page that was linked by SMS spam, which we posted about on Tuesday.

Now the fine print says that service is free of charge, and by using this service, the user gives the company rights to send information and promotional messages in the future.

Interestingly enough, the page used to have the company name at the bottom, that is now removed.

If the fine print on the page can be relied on, the SMS spam messages are now rather harmless.

But we still advise people against clicking on any unsolicited links that they receive via SMS, as the company behind these messages still tries to use the page to legitimize any further advertising messages.
