Text Message Commercials

Yesterday I received a text commercial from my bank! I couldn't believe it! I never gave them permission to do anything like that and I wasn't going to put up with it! At the end of the message there was a note that says if you don't want to text then text a message saying NO. I did then I called the bank and gave them whatfore! How dare they send a message via the cell phone! We, the owners, have to pay for the texts! I then called the bank and gave them a piece of my mind about the situation and do you know what they said? "We  are allowed to refund $.20 to your account for the message." $.20 for a message that was fairly long? And the thing that really got me: she said that this is a new wave of business advertisement that a lot of businesses are now starting to use!

I think we, the citizens, need to stand up against this nonsense! I'm thinking of calling my Congressman and Senators to stand against this! If you believe as I do then start making your calls!

Grrrrrrrr!
