FunMobile.com / Unsolicited text messaging!

1 United States Review updated:

This company sends unsolicited text messages that result in $5.99 charge against your cell service. They have sent 7 messages in 14 days. Verizon Wireless seems unwilling to block this scam operator. Do the state Attorneys General have any jurisdiction here? Plz advise smb!

    I'm having the same problem. I keep trying to make them stop and I get no reply. Only many text messages and a bill from Verizon. I have not asked for this service and I want it to stop. Is there anyone out there that can help me make them stop?

    This company is sending my phone unwanted jokes everyday and everyday I have to erase these messages that I never signed up for. And now they are stating that I will be charged $5.99 weekly and $23.99 monthly. How can I stop this from happening? And also how do I get a hold of this company. I will have to shut down my service with Sprint if they are not willing to Block this person from charging me. I will refuse to pay THIS PERSON. Please respond A.S.A.P. I will have to go further than this.

    I began receiving these messages last week. I notified Verizon that they were unsolicited. I was advised to reply with "Stop" "Unsubscribe" "Quit". I receive a return reply that my mail is not understood. Verizon told me to contact them if the messages do not stop. They offered to credit my account for these calls. Wish me luck!

    I received jokes unsolicited and was charged $5.99 each through my Verizon cell phone company. I called them and they said that they just billed for them. When I ask for a phone number to discuss this with FunMobile, I was given a phone number to unsubscribe. I cannot send an email or call anyone about these charges. If anyone has an email address or a phone number I would like to have it. This is a scam and needs to be investigated.

    I have been billed twice for $5.99 for unsolicited text messages by cell phone service provider (Alltel) and they would do nothing about it, other than who the charges were from.

    I also was told that I would receive free ring tones, and then received a message about the charge, so I cancelled it within an hour and was told that it was cancelled, but I was still charged $6.00 for this. I just hope that I don't get any more charges from Funmobile as I don't want it. I have never received anything for the $6.00 that they did charge me. This is a scam. I guess nothing is free.

    I've been getting these jokes everyday and I have asked them to stop and they keep sending them to me and my phone is being charged for something that I haven't subscribed to. Please help me to take these charges off of my phone bill and to make them stop texting me. I can't change my phone number because I have a lot of business being handled by this phone number.

    I received a $30.00 charge on my verizon bill for text messages. I have unsubscribed to all services from this company. - this is a nightmare - there is no customer service number and no way to contact them. BBB need to shut them down - how many people are they getting money from - since they are not a us company - what do we do???

    You can also call to unsubscribe: 1-800-659-4091.

    We sent a text on Deal or No Deal and this was the result of sending that text!
