Mobile Phone DOS Attack?

Well, that's odd. I've just started getting some rather odd texts - about 2-3 a minute - from a number of the form '1910338xxxx' [last four digits, slowly increasing].

Each text consists of 2-3 parts (but they don't all arrive completely) and consist of exactly the sort of email you get when your address has been used as a from address in a spam. And each one of them wants me to autoreply.

Anyone got any ideas what may be going on?
