Unsolicited sms messages ??

Today we received an sms from the "yes" campaign. How did they get our mobile numbers ? We don't give out our mobile numbers, or subscribe to any sms messages.

 

It seems this happened to thousands of people across Australia. This is harrasment.

Hi Oygle, 


Boost do not pass on your details except as mentioned in our Privacy Policy that can be found online: http://boost.com.au/about-us/privacy-policy/. There are, however, a number of ways that companies may obtain your number, such as when you include your number to enter a competition or sign up to a subscription depending on the fine print. You may also be contacted by people using a sequential or random number generator to generate phone numbers to message.
