Rich people sure are different.


Got a text from a local area code number that says "Sorry, I can't talk right now. Call back later."

Is this a scammer looking for a bite or is my number being spoofed?

I've recently been getting text messages from various numbers addressed to my sister (I'm on her family plan) that $120-130 in Amazon rewards are waiting if I just click this mysterious link, or something about CBD gummies.

Did the spammers finally figure out that nobody answers calls from unknown numbers anymore so they switched to texts?

I've been getting more scam texts about Amazon gift cards awaiting my account lately as well. For every 100000 or so texts scammers send out, there's at least 1 person that's legitimately interested. Whatever you do, don't text "STOP" at the end if you want to stop receiving those texts as those messages sometimes have at the bottom- that just tells the scammers that you actually read and responded to their text.

However, robo calls aren't going away anytime soon unfortunately. Just got 3 of them this week.

oh yeah, I never reply to those. I don't even bother blocking the numbers since it's a different one every time.

So I've noticed that I and others get scam texts for gift card giveaways in some weird amount like $110 or $115. Anyone know why they choose those numbers?
