What can I do to avoid receiving spam message?
It is not 100% possible, but to avoid being targeted of a spam message, be cautious about revealing your mobile phone number to other organization, whether online or in person at restaurants, shops or while participating in surveys or filling up questionnaires.
When you are filing registration forms, ensure you read the terms and conditions carefully before revealing your mobile phone number. Most reputable companies and services will officially ask for your permission to reveal contact details to other third party for marketing purposes.
