If spammers can spoof any number can they use the numbers that businesses often have posted publicly?

Confirmation bias but I seem to be getting a lot of coincidental wrong numbers from various businesses recently.

so i notice my pixel now has a smart screener where a robo google voice says the call is being screened and then attemps to do a voice to text transcipt for "legit" calls.

havent used it much other then the one curiosity try with friends and family. the voice to text is bad btw.

e: btw, do spammer know if you let a call time out or you just swipe down and block it?

I been getting a ton of spam calls for pain treatment.


Also anyone here have a Pixel 1/2/whatever and have you been trying out their call screening service for spam? Do spammer know its a live number if you dismiss a call VS just letting it timeout or in my case using this call screener.

One teaspoon of pure msg fed to a person is very excessive. Use extremely small amounts or bulk it with dextrin or salt so you can sprinkle it freely.

the guidelines I seen with a quick search engine try is about 1/4 tsp for a whole dish.


also maybe placeboing myself, but I think adding a tiny bit of MSG to stuff makes it taste better.

I forgot which video essay it was, but some MLMs also do their own version of loot boxes or other cultish things like telling your spose/SO to quit their job and help you.


(the lootbox one was some zuckbook clothing MLM that gave you like one nice legging in a box full of ugly rear end leggings or something)

Lularoe? You send then money, they send you whatever they feel like. Then you're stuck trying to figure out how to sell 5 medium and 20 XXS santa-themed leggings in June. They also require you to buy an insane amount of product when you join, we're talking multiple thousands of dollars for their smallest starter pack.

They're currently busy being sued into bankrupcy.

yeah it was Lularoe. Also the video essay i watched was from KnowingBetter.

my caller ID had IRS as the name and i picked it up, did nothing because it asked for the wrong person. only after it i remembered the 0th rule of "yo we never call you."


is there any tech solution to making spoofing numbers/IDs impossible?

so whats with spam texts being sent from email addresses ( gmail or some rando junk), sending a junk url that I assume is has some sort of malware.


is this how text spam is going to be in the future since spoofing phone numbers is getting harder(because of that shaken/stirred thing?)?

there's a boots thread in You Look Like poo poo; supposedly the "good" goon fashion forum.

you should probabaly just go tot a physical store that does work wear, pretty sure brands have their own store fronts so you dont gamble on amazon or whatever loving you over.
