Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Rebirth of SMS spam

Published: Monday 2010-08-16.

Since I newly switched telephones, but not yet have moved over quite all the data, I have put another SIM card in my old phone, so that I can access its data. The card has an old mobile number I haven’t actively used for the last eight to nine years. So I was quite surprised when this appeared when I turned on the phone recently:

+2782911639: We Announce To you Today (11/08/2010)Your Lucky Mobile No Win GBP550,000 in the Ongoing UK INTL Mobile Promo email us on claimsms@gmail.com To Redeem your prize
SMS spam from South Africa (+27).

It has been quite a while since I last got a spam SMS, knock on wood. It was a bit strange that it came to a phone number I do not use daily, though.
