Eluding a Barrage of Spam Text Messages

"Do you need up to $1,300 today?" I was recently asked. Except for perhaps Mark Zuckerberg, who doesn't?
Unfortunately this question wasn't asked by a friend; rather, it came to me in a spam text on my cellphone.
The offer was for a "payday loan," a type of high-interest cash advance that many states have banned. And that wasn't the only thing about the message that was questionable from a legal perspective.
