Unwanted status bar notifications - Dating Sites
So for about the last week I started noticing small little icons appearing in the top left hand corner of the screen (status bar?). One appears as a tiny red star but I can't recall the other icon. When I pull down the ongoing tasks/notification I find they are for the dating sites Zoosk and POF.
I don't have these applications on my phone and no runnning applications seem to be pushing them. Would Google/Verizon allow these companies to do notification pushes like this?
Any idea how to get them to stop?

I get these push messages all the time & have uninstalled lots of apps thinking one or another was the cause & I have also gone to the website given on some of the notifications to unsubscribe but they always come back. Not all are dating sites but they are annoying.

Re: Unwanted status bar notifications - Dating Sites
Are these showing up when you drag-down from the Notification bar? If so, you can long-press on the notification and select 'App info'to find out what app is causing the problem (in this example I long-pressed on the New voicemail notification).
