Been getting invites to sms.ac?

I’ve had quite a few invites to join the sms.ac network recently, from various people (obviously sent automatically, not individually to me) – I followed the link today, was told that it was all about sending free SMS messages (a good thing?), and signed up, only to notice that there’s a lot more to it than that. So I googled the company and came up with this from ripoffreport.com – please, have a read of it, make up your own mind. The reports look pretty damning. There’s a rebuttal from someone who works for the company, but a large amount of information claiming the whole thing is a scam.

Really does sound like the potential cons really do outweigh any coolness factor that sending a few free SMS messages might have. I cancelled my account with them after about 5 minutes. Here’s hoping I didn’t get scammed in that time…
