THIS IS MY HUSBANDS PH BUT WE CHANGED OUR NUMBER AND WHO EVER HAD THIS NUMBER BEFOR HIM HAS SIGNED UP FOR A WHOLE BUNCH OF BS AND I SENT STOP TO THIS NUMBER AND SO HAVE MY HUSBAND ALOT OF TIME THIS IS BS S*** AND NEEDS TO STOP!!!!!!!!! ITS ACTUALLY TEXT MESSAGES!
Do you have some info on this number?
I received the same message and thought wait a minute I already have DISH. This is scam and I hope no one calls the number. NEVER RETURN A CALL FROM A TEXT MESSAGE if haven't ordered or requested any information or service.
i'm in NY & they got my phone number...have no idea how. Very fishy.
yep same here
well good to know i am not alone.
got this same text message. I called dish directly and they said it is a scam
I got the text too. I think they got my number from a previous scam I almost got involved in I often got texts like this now.
so how do we get the entity who is sending this annoying message & most likely an illegal message STOPPED or turned over to the police?
I ALSO RECEIVED THE SAME TEXT THIS MORNING IN GEORGETOWN, TEXAS.
I got one too this morning. I called the number and the first few tries I was unsuccessful. Finally I got through and it sent me to my service provider. I spoke to a rep that verified that no such order was placed. Anyone had the same thing happen to them?
I just got same txt. When I called, my phone said "Call rejected". I called AT&T to see if I could block future txt msgs - yes if I want to pay $4.99/mth. or report spam to AT&T by forwarding this txt to AT&T at 7726. I did and then AT&T texted back asking for the offending phone number. I gave them this website for more info. LOL. AT&T sent thank you text in acknowledgement. I am sending this website to everyone in my phone directory. Thanks v. much.
Are you kidding me? I may have accidently been swindled into accepting a text message from a damn third party company, but I never would have willing signed up for this! I must remind myself to be sure and read the fine print. Your company sucks balls and I hate them, they have randomly sent me 4 texts over a week and wont stop. F*** YOU
I live in Newbury Park, CA. Where did they get my phone # from.I never give my # out unless it is something I subscribe to. Interesting!!!
Got the same message described by others. I suspected it might be a phishing scam. Glad I checked here first to confirm.
got them message again i keep gettin it and i have never called dish or asked about dish. i called and it goes to a wired noise like internet answering machine. i live in new york.
I just got the text too. Im in Ohio
I got it too, i just registered for Comcast 3 months ago. I am in Michigan. I guess we will find out what happens.
1-877-495-6682 <----- this number texted my phone.
Never heard of it in my life.
I never even requested that a DISH Satellite Installation be done tomorrow.
Nor do I even have a DISH Satellite Installation account, which is rather odd.
I don't even know who this phone number is, and why they chose my phone number to scam / telemarket.
My phone number is private.

Do that in your text message first.
Then go here:
The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free.
I just got the same for a DISH installation tomorrow with the save/stop etc.. from 800 495 6682 - if you call it's a busy signal.
The text is not coming from Dish, but Dish actually does install on Satudays.
Just got it. I live in Indiana. We just got reconnected to Comcast cable 2 months ago and they wanted me to join "Saveology" but I opted out and they made such a stink about it,...how I was going to lose out on all these savings....whatever!
Juat got that text msg from that # too in Seaside, CA. I'm a dishnetwork customer, but my installation was done over a month ago.
Ok, I just replyd STOP. and got a message back YOU HAVE OPTED OUT OF FUTURE EXACT TARGET MOBILE ALERTS. FOR MORE INFORMATION REPLY HELP. MSG & DATA RATES MAY APPLY.
I ALSO REPLYED LIKE THE MESSAGE SAID... SAVSTOP DISH AND GOT THE MESSAGE
THIS MESSAGE CONFIRMS THAT YOU HAVE DISCONTINUED THEST MESSAGES YOU WILL NO LONGER RECIVE MESSAGES. QUESTIONS CALL 954-657-9268...
just got the same message, I live in sheboygan county, wisconsin
I just got the same text ! But I live in Harlem.
So if the message is ignored, is someone gonna show up? And if I reply STOP will they? and Why can't the number be reached?
How odd. A mass message from a fraudulent entity seeking honest responses. Don't worry, the government will save you. : P
Yes, I just got the same Text and called back to with no answer and it hung up on me after. I hate that I get this BS on my cell phone. Is there anyway to have them remove our phone number from them? Ridiculous
Just got it - live in Madison, WI and am a Verizon subscriber
