I get it all the time. Just ignore and delete them and they won't achieve their objective. Google is also pretty good in screening them away as spam.

I've been getting annoying long chinese SMSes. I don't even enter lucky draws so I'm wondering who's been selling my phone number... :skeptical:

Never respond to any SMS, even if they say send "UN" to unsubscribe. It's bs. The moment you reply, you will get spammed even more.

Yup I realised that. same as with emails...

only if it's a trusted company that might have gotten my details from certain sign-ups, like make-up or something... then I'll msg UN and the sms-es usually stop.
