Just got scammed !!
    #26926147 - 09/09/20 01:14 PM (12 days, 23 hours ago)

Received text sms message that said theres a problem with my phone bill. It said log in immediately to review your account.


So I try to log in, trying all my passwords nothing works.

I phone the mobile phone company and they say theres nothing wrong. It was a scam !!!

So I changed my amazon and gmail account passwords. Probably few more needs to change... fringing bastards, it was a personalised message, they knew my mobile phone provider!!

Yeah I don’t answer shit.  If someone is trying to get ahold of me I call back to their headquarters and demand to speak with their leader.

I don't answer my pocket snitch unless it's someone I know. Most calls I get are just spam from automated call centers. When there is a problem, calling up the company directly or handling it in person are always the best ways. No self-respecting company is going to resort to sending unencrypted texts for account issues.

I don't answer my phone either... There is not a single person in this world that is going to call me with good news, it's only going to be shit.. same as checking mail.. i'm so happy when it's empty.

P.S. on the upside my phone bill is only $16 a month :smile: I love ting sooo much.

I kid you not, I just got a call that went like this-

*phone rings, local area code*
Me- Hello.
Them- 'Hello, this is Emma calling in regards to your auto policy.'
Me- How did you get my number
Them- *brief pause* 'Hello, this is Amy calling from wherever about your auto policy.'
Me- How did you get my number.
Them- 'Hello, this is Amber calling from...

But it was the same voice restarting her line with 3 different names 😆

They've seriously called me every day for past week. Even on Saturday, it's getting old.

Plus the number keeps changing.

Fookin hell

I've been getting lots of calls lately, 3-4 a day, international as well as local.

I press the answer button and stay silent. Half of them hang up straight away, other half play pre recorded messages.

Exactly the same. 3-4 a day, some local some foreign. They are prompted to talk once someone says 'Hello' or whatever. So I pickup and don't say a word. They hang up.

Just a frustration as I'm waiting to hear back from several places, so can't just ignore them.  The one time I thought it was a bot and didn't answer, it was my pup's vet with important bloodwork results. Then you call back and it takes another week just to connect.

Think it has something to do with election...?

Yup. Don't say a word, wait for them to speak.

That's what I do. I'm getting multiple spam calls every day, but I can't just not answer because I routinely get relevant work calls from numbers I don't know.

If you speak, and it's a spam caller, then they know it's a valid number. If you don't speak, and it's a benign real life call, blame it on a bad connection or whatever after they cautiously say "hello?".

Yes precisely!  Also wonder if it's credit debt collectors.:mad2:
