Dallas and Chicago Are Top SMS Spam Magnets in the U.S. Today

Dallas and Chicago Are Top SMS Spam Magnets in the U.S. Today 300x182 Dallas and Chicago Are Top SMS Spam Magnets in the U.S. TodayDallas and Chicago are locked in a heated battle. And it has nothing to do with the Cowboys or the Bears. Not even the Bulls and the Mavericks. This, in fact, is entirely unrelated to sports.

Sadly, it’s all about spam – specifically, SMS spam.

Mobile security company AdaptiveMobile recently explored the growth of SMS traffic across the United States, an exercise that also revealed where the largest concentrations of SMS spam are located. Regrettably for Chicago, Illinois and Dallas, Texas, these two amazing cities are battling for the top spot among cities that receive the most unwanted text messages.

And neither wants to be the winner.

All told, the alarming report shows “that mobile phones in South Florida, Dallas and Chicago were targeted with the highest levels of SMS spam” in the United States.

During this two-month period investigated, Los Angeles generated the most spam in the United States and “was responsible for a pump-and-dump scam which ‘exploded’ across the United States.”

“This high-level view of all SMS spam across the United States for September and October is a powerful means in identifying the people most targeted by the messages as well as the areas generating the most amount of SMS spam,” says Cathal McDaid, Head of Security Operations at AdaptiveMobile.

“We now know that where you live in the United States can determine how much SMS spam you can expect to receive each year,” McDaid adds. “Having this level of detail will allow mobile operators to better combat the threat. In addition the visualizations give a stunning, unique view of both how mobile spam is sent and how mobile spam is evolving.”
