Usually voter registration records, or public portfolios the city/ county has on you. As a CMV operator, There is always a record of Inspections along with my phone number and clothes I was wearing. (good thing I havent been inspected while driving in my pajamas :P)

I did get an anonymous text about how the city officials have been hiding something for the past two decades. Along with some contact info and the FED case number in case I wanted to call to get more info.

It happens here too, probably the telephone company, that provides the service to you, authorizes the use of your personal information, because the number of mobile phone should be so, to send ad and other stuff on your cell. phone.

I got it too and am glad to see others got it as well. I just happened to get mine the night after installing an app on my phone which by all accounts the app shouldnt have been fine but one never knows.

Found it odd that I received spam about Obama stating to call a "210" number on the day that he's here in San Antonio.

Any others receive this text?
