I've been getting SMS messages from some bozo who thinks I am someone else. I can't tell where they are coming from, or respond (no valid reply number).

I have a suspicion it is coming from MSN. Here's what I see:

----

From: 1110100006 (M)
Date: 14/8/02 12:40 pm

FRM:MSN
MSG:Hotmail L.R Diwan: blah blah blah blah...

----

The weird thing is each time I get a message from this guy, the number in the from field goes up by one (i.e. the last one was 1110100005).

Any ideas on how to extrapolate what this guys MSN account might be? I'm guessing this is coming through an email gateway...

Cingular has been remarkably unhelpful, telling me they cannot trace it and the only way to avoid it is to change my number. Meanwhile I am getting charged each time this guy sends me something. Lovely.
