    You might need to go into hiding, the police are almost certainly on their way to arrest you now...

    Er, no if they're a spam company they've probably heard it all before (speaking as someone who used to work for marketing research :rolleyes:).

    I got a text earlier from this spamming company who send me countless emails and countless texts ALL THE TIME, and it really annoys me.

    So i just replied to their text saying **** off. It was a proper mobile number.

    Can i get into trouble for that?

    (sorry such a goody goody worrier )
    Your query is about as stupid as your username.
