Just a heads up warning I just got a text message on my cell and there was no number or name that came in with it

Hello: I took your digits from our friend, I bet you can't guess who I am! oh I'm so shy..look me up online, my page is xxxx.dateregion.com

As far as I can tell this has been going on since October 2007.  The same basic message from an unidetnified number claiming to have gotten the number from a friend.  There is a site to report it if you do recieve a text from an unidentified number, of course I'm not sure I would give the information that this site asks for.  But if you would like to make a report

I would suggest reportingit to you cell phone carrier instead of an unknown site.  This can be annoying and expensive if you calling plan charges you by the text or only allows a limited number of texts each month. 

This could be a Phishing scheme ot get you to go to the website to capture your information there.  To get you to report it to this site that has been set up and capture your information there or it could just be some idiot with too much time on their hands.  I suggest erring on the side of caution and treating it like a Phishing scam.
