SMS Summons?

We've all heard of SMS divorce and SMS spam. But I just got the most bizzare text message.

Subject: DUBAI COURTS.
Message: The Notary Public Dept. of Dubai Courts. Welcome you to both new branches in Tawar and Barsha.

Not a summons then.

file under: only in Dubai.

I had the same! Got quite a jolt reading the first line - thinking shit, this is it, what have they taken offence to now.

Just more spam. First time it's been a relief to get spam!

The weirdest thing is that they expect to be dishing out so many more traffic ticket that they had to go open two new locations

I got one earlier today! Must admit I felt a little nervous at first, but for once I'm glad this was just spam and not something else.
