@JJSG14 - Sorry to hear you got an unwanted text!! I just got a similar sender yesterday myself so this is definitely a spam message. You can send it off for investigation by forwarding the message to 7726 (SPAM) as a text message. You will then receive a free message asking you to provide the sender's number. You would provide the email as that is the sender. You will then receive a second text message thanking you for providing the info. Smiley Happy Hope that helps!
