Just received an SMS from "SMSTO" and the message is "Test 70K List".

My wife received the same message, and a bit later from the same sender "Test 100K list".

My intuition suggests that a lot of people are going to be bombarded with unsolicited texts from these lists of 100K and 70K.

I think I shall get on to the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection.

My guess is that someone is testing a list of 70,000 mobile phone numbers which they have obtained, probably illegally.

There are numerous companies (globally) promoting 'unlimited free texts online'. Thus the 'sms to....'(SMSTO) identity.

At least half a dozen such outfits are advertising and specifically referencing Cyprus. Of course it's also possible that one company is using several IDs

CYta also have a web SMS service, with "10,000 contacts that you can organize into groups. Up to 500 recipients for each lot you send.'
