Debt Relief Order – Spam Text Message


With my original debt settlement order spam text message post having gained significant velocity in the blogosphere, I thought it worth posting here with regard to a subtle change of tack for the spammers with this new message:

The government has introduced a Debt Relief Order. People struggling to pay bills can have debt wiped off for ever. For more info text INFO. To stop text STOP

This is hardly surprising. A search for Debt Settlement order in google at the time of writing yielded the above post with the text ‘DO NOT REPLY EITHER WAY – THIS IS A SCAM’, whereas, a search for Debt Relief Order revealed no such indication.

For now, all the info regarding this is on the above link.

Feel free to post any numbers and variants below. It’ll all help keep this prominent and prevent others from falling into the same trap.
