Started receiving spam texts to buy DMB gear...

Has anyone else started receiving spam text messages with links to buy DMB gear? Here are a few I've gotten:


From (833) 330-1322:
Dave Matthews 30th anniversary fanwear - Order: https://moologo.com/<REDACTED UNIQUE IDENTIFIER>

From (844) 602-0369:
Dave Matthews Tumbler Cup. Only for True Fans! Link> https://cahere.com/<REDACTED UNIQUE IDENTIFIER>


I haven't bought any DMB gear for quite some time and I don't think I've ever purchased from 3rd party websites. (Only Live CDs from the official store, and that was years ago.)


Wondering where these could be coming from. Anyone else receiving these messages, or have any ideas?

The texts I received also included a "Reply STOP to unsubscribe." I've avoided replying because any interaction with spam messages can validate to the spammer that your number is a real person, and lead to more spam...


Did your messages have the same unsubscribe option? Did you reply?

Yup I got one yesterday. I’m assuming, it’s all from this site since we get that ad pop-up that you have to click on to get rid of it. So thanks Ants Marching!

I'm not sure I'm ready to blame AM.org - as far as I can remember, I haven't provided this website with my phone number. I can't find it anywhere in my profile here either. (I can't even find a field where a phone number would be added...)


For those that have received these messages recently, did they use the same wordings/websites that I included in my OP?

Yeah I got one the other day, I just deleted it. I'm sure at some point during a ticket purchase we gave our number, and that data was sold to merch so they could hit the ground running this season with some sales initiatives.

Didn't click it, but doesn't seem legit even. If so, it would be kind of crappy for DMB to sign us up without our knowledge.

Re: Started receiving spam texts to buy DMB gear...

I get them for a few bands. I'm wondering if its merchbar.com or something similar that hosts merch for multiple bands.

Well on second thought, I think you’re right. AM.org - my apologies.

Re: Started receiving spam texts to buy DMB gear...

I got one of these a year or two ago and then have received two more recently. Pretty strange. Not sure I've ever put my phone number into a DMB-related site or anything (other than Warehouse).

I haven’t gotten any yet. Kind of feel left out now.

I'm on android.


A quick Google search shows Ticketmaster had a data beach in 2018. Either that or maybe The Warehouse had a leak that hasn't been discovered/announced yet...?


Has anyone gotten these messages for another band's gear?
