Text Blast Consent
Did you receive this text blast today?
It is NOT a scam.
A revision was made to the regulations of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which applies to all text messages that will be sent beginning October 16, 2013. The changes include a new requirement for SMS programs to obtain "express written consent" from consumers before sending a text message.
Basically, nothing is changing, we just have to get consent from folks that receive our text blasts.
