+ - New Blackberry SPAM

Submitted by cycik
cycik writes: I just wiped out a Blackberry to redeploy to another corporate user. There are no e-mail accounts set up on the Blackberry, and yet as soon as I turned on wireless I received about 14 pump and dump stock scam messages. Anyone else see items like this. The Blackberry is set up with a phone number, but it can't be SMS spam as the e-mails are larger than 160 characters. Only odd item I have seen online is from this blog http://markpincus.typepad.com/markpincus/2006/04/a nyone_noticing.html
