Uberspam SMS – anyone know how to stop it?

It’s over a year since I visited Chennai, that doesn’t stop Uber spamming my Chinese number with offers…  ..anyone know how to get them to stop?

Oddly I changed my telephone number since then as well.

Those of you who do live in Chennai could try the latest discount code 669CHN..

[the correct answer is to follow the instructions in Chinese – but hey, they know they are texting a Chinese number, from India, in a mixture of English and Chinese…]

This article on Uber is rather good:
