Received an unsolicited text from this clown who promotes for some crappy nightclub called Club Ember (also known as Ember Cafe and Music Club) in Anaheim. I guess this dumbass doesn't realize there's a Do-Not-Call Registry for mobile phones and that sending out spam text messages like this is illegal. I doubt he gets a lot of business out of this little advertising scam of his, but he's going to need a lot of money for his lawyer fees when he gets sued for spam texting phones.
it might just be advertisement ... as any person would advertise their business ... i believe
Got a txt from this person on 10/13/10 2:54 am:
This Sunday October 17th The Grand opening of Banda Nights @Ember(18&Over)
-Banda El Pacifico
I got the same message that many of you also got. This guy is nuts. I responded warning him he could get sued & not to ever text me again.
Received a phone call. No message left.
Corporate executive office number is 714-991-5101. Call these a***oles during normal working hours.
Any hungry out of work attorneys out there who can put together a class action suit against Club Ember and George De La Vega? There are plenty of pissed off people. FCC complaints aren't worth s***.
Got a hold of the General Manager of the club, his number is (949) 929-3337, I believe this is his cell phone. Spoke with him and asked him to call me back on Tuesday (which is when George De La Vega comes into the offices), to confirm my name is off the distribution list. George will be out of town until Monday and back on tuesday, so I was told there may be the possiblity that I may recieve another text before then. Will repost on Tuesday to say how well this worked out in removing my number from this distribution list.
text came from 714/650-0277 to text this number for vip tics to a club 714/396-9714
There are complaints all over the net on this club and George De La Vega. He has a myspace page, a twitter account, a facebook page, and his own website. I suggest that everyone on this page leave a message on each, file an FtC complaint and see how much $$ in fine we can rack up on this unethical promoter. I saw complaints about the way this club handled there tickets insulted customers and didn't refund when people couldn't get in with PREPAID tickets. Go to the website and judge for yourself or google the club or its promoter. Now go kick some &(#$&@%&_%@#(&*
David Aldrige? come on r u stupid or what?
Just got a message from this a hole as well.
dont bother me
I just got a text exactly like that but from 714-650-3220
i got the same thing, lets all go and see whats up, lol....
I've recieved several "spam" text messages from 714-258-6902. I've also recieved calls from 973-327-7086 (apparently a porn place). I don't know how these people got my number and don't appreciate them texting me or calling me.
I hate to receive a msg from this number. How to kick his butt?
Received a message from this number.
This Sunday The Grand opening of Banda nights at Ember...
Bana el Pacifico
Call 714-396-9714 for B. Service
I did not buy my phone at Radio Shack in Fullerton.
I do not go to clubs in Anaheim
I have had this number for nearly 10 years.
I keep getting text messages from Club Ember 714-258-6902. I don't know them, I don't give out my cell phone number. And I'm on the do not call list. I want them stopped.
Did you guys happen to get your phones at Radio Shack in Fullerton? Because I never got these texts until I upgraded to a new phone at Radio Shack in Fullerton, and I felt like the guy helping me had been taking my number down more than necessary. The texts started the very next day, so I'm highly suspicious that the staff at that Radio Shack are mishandling people's information.
I've never been to ANY club, much less this one, and I don't have my phone number attached to myspace or anywhere else it could be "farmed" from.
Just left a 1 star Yelp review of the club complaining about this guy. Perhaps if we can't persuade him to quit spamming us, Club Ember can.
I called the 714-991-5101 number given on this site and was told by the person who answered to respond to the original message and ask to be unsubscribed. So I texted 714-396-9714 and 714-258-6902 and told them to STOP. We'll see what happens.
The person at the 991 number didn't know how they got my number. I asked her if she's gotten many calls like this, adn she said she's gotten a few. I suggest that everyone call that number and bombard them with calls. That may be the best way to get them to stop.
Yeah, me too - im not even 15 yet!
same, to invite my friends to go to a club. To text 7143969714
And then i texted and called to see who in the world it was and they sent me a text saying that to unsubscribe, send a text with an "X"
Seriously, i'm getting mad.
Yes. same thing invitation to Labor Day event @club ember reply to 713 396 9714. Sucks for sure
I just received a message from these clowns too. I'm about to offer them a bottle of shut-the-f&#%-up.
I have also been getting these messages from this number. I wonder how they got my cell phone number in the first place, considering that I am on the national 'do not call' list. I'm not even 18 yet.
I also received this stupid text message. I've blocked the number, but I think this jerk should definitely be slapped with a law suit for ignoring the do not call registry.
Same message, received at 8:12am September 2, 2010. I don't feel comforted at all that my cell phone number is floating around out there.
Just got the same message about 2 minutes ago... Really annoying, I don't know where he got my number from, but I do live in OC.
The exact message I got is:
"You have won VIP passes to Club Ember "The Best Nightclub in OC for you and all ur friends. Text George De La Vega at 714.396.9714 so u can get them now ."
I received two unsolicited texts yesterday and when i turned on my telephone this morning I received any.I have not, will not be visiting this Club Ember- I called the first telephone on there web site and yes it is a recorded message but the second telephone telephone number is a live person named christian that picked up the telephone. I asked for the owner/manager and his name is Steve Elkins. His telephone number is 714 991-5101. Please all who have the time call and harass them as they are harassing us. I am calling my telephone carrier and the better business bureau . If it continues i will be calling the telephone to file a report. Why do i register on the do not call list if no one follows the rules.
