THIS IS NOT A SOLUTION!
I receive these at least once a week, from a throwaway random email address, usually as group text to many phone numbers almost identical to mine. The text or link usually has Chinese characters (which is a guess, since I do not speak Chinese). Obviously I delete and do not reply, but the real solution needs to be that Cricket customers MUST have the ability to turn off receiving text messages from email addresses!
Please, fix this. It is annoying, and potentially harmful to people, especially children. I do not know what the links go to, obviously, but you need to fix this.
This is turned into a major problem with the last two weeks for me. I get five of these today! I also saw how AT&T has a way to solve it. Which means that Cricket does too. Cricket, give us the solution!
