I have been receiving unwanted texts from two different companies. I didn't even subscribe to them, they aren't even addressed to me. I have texted "STOP" to opt out of receiving their texts (like their messages claim I can do) but they still continue to text me. One company has been texting me for about a year now. I googled their information and sent them an email requesting they please take my number out of their system. They did not reply and they didn't stop texting. They usually text on a monthly basis or every other. Sometimes more frequently, it just depends. I've lost count how many times I've attempted to opt out by texting STOP. The other company just started last month. They were texting frequent (several a week). And from different numbers so I have to opt out of all of them.
It's driving me insane! It doesn't matter how many times I've texted STOP to either company's texts they just keep coming. Someone told me I could sue for this but I wanted to see if that is in fact true and how I go about doing that if it is true.
You may have a claim. Have you contacted you phone carrier and asked them to block the number?
