I've been getting "personal reminder alerts" from a contact that identifies as 286-40, on a monthly basis, for a particular financial transaction. I suspect that, in my confusion several years ago when I set up my first iPhone, it might have been something I set up, either on a task organizer app or on the iOS Reminder app or Calendar. I've tried looking for it in the apps I still have, and on my apple ID and my iCloud account, to no avail.


Aside from being annoying, it's costing me (pennies, to be sure) for text messaging, since I normally use iMessage with family iPhone users and the xfinity app for non-iPhone users, both of which are free.


I'd like to cancel this monthly message but can't figure out how to. Does anyone know where such reminders for 286-40 come from?



iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2
