I just got an email offering me free instant messages on my cellphone from SMS.ac - after some research, I'm finding some pretty nasty reports on them, including claims of criminal activity and fraud.

Here are links to some of the stuff I found on them. You can find more by going to google.com and searching on sms.ac - there is a lot of stuff about them.

If you have signed up with them, and you entered any of your passwords, you might want to change them immediately. These guys have a habit of using your accounts to get more email addresses to send their offers to. I think someone on one of these links mentioned that they entered their hotmail password as part of the sign up process. If you did too, change your hotmail password, quick!
