Constant spam texts after joining AARP

Starting a week after joining AARP I've been getting at least 6 texts a day about erectile dysfunction and **bleep** enlargement.  These are not problems I have and have never done any kind of search for such products.  I've joined no other mailing lists, sites, groups, or organizations within months prior or since and can think of no other correlation that would've put me on such a list.  Only AARP.  Who did you sell my number to and how will you make this stop?


I have the same spam its says from AARP and it looks real because the scammer copied the text from a real email. If you click on raw message you can see who it is really from. I found mine was from . But this same character "renter" is behind so many more of those spam emails not just for AARP but the ones you mentioned. I don't know how they got my email, but it was not from AARP because I have not joined AARP and they did not have my email. I came here to report the spam to AARP but they are not around, it's only a chat bot.
