So I was hearing a few people had a bunch of random texts from people they have in their contacts randomly texting them overnight. I received one too from a buddy (aka Anthony lol). When I sent him a screen shot, he said it wasn't him. Anyone hear anything out there? It was all SMS texts and between 2:30a-4a EST.

This is all over the news now... something fishy was definitely going on.

Just a thought but I wonder if this has anything to do with the new RCS Messaging that I've been hearing about.
