i received text messages today from area codes in two different states, neither of which is mine, one saying “LetsMeetUp” and the other saying “LetsChatNow”, then both say, “[my name] Hey I got your number from ur profile. Shows we live close, lets chat [link inserted here] Find me here”

this link (dkq2.me/yaUz9ifOk) sends me to apple’s home page.

this link (ke9w.me/hlFJwTfOk) sends me to google’s home page.

neither link seems nefarious, but i’m skeptical that tim, larry or serge would try to hook up with me this way.

any thoughts about or experience with these?

why are you even clicking on these links? Block future calls/texts and move on.

When it comes to spam, I'm not curious - I just want it to stop.

The subject line reminded me of a refrain of a song with the same words, and I can't find it!

I don't know the song. I only know it's not Smash Mouth, Sia, or Dave Matthews.

It's a negative earworm. I don't hear the song but I know I like it, and now all I can do is think about finding and blasting it.

My thoughts– you never should have clicked the links, just ignored and maybe blocked, and you definitely never should have made this post.

I was perfectly happy up until then.

You claim the links you provided are to Apple and Google. They are not. They are both links to a knockoff ‘Facebook hookup’ site.

Care to explain?

Here's a text I (and 9 other people I don't know) got last week:

Hey gorgeous
It's great to have fun and real sex time, I'm promiscuous and attractive. I love sex.(hearteyes) Sex my hobby! See my details (link) No CC need baby.Just verify by mail and search my name.

The (hearteyes) is verbatim, the link removed. I blocked the sender and all 9 other recipients.

Sheryl Crow

No, not her or the DC5.

It was a fast, up tempo song, with a male singer, I think.

Six months from now, I'll sit bolt upright on 0300 with when it pops into my head.

I'll fall back to sleep and upon waking, remember that I remembered it, but now forgot.
