This is new: Spam text supposedly from my CC company

The number is in Brooklyn and the link provided in a text goes to a french website - looks like a news site.

Text said there's a suspicious eBay purchase of $450.

Checked with the CC company - no suspicious purchases.

Sigh...most of my cell phone messages are spam and I'm getting spam text too?????

yep.

I like to text back, "you have subscribed to bible verses of the day, to opt out reply STOP"

And when then do "STOP" I say "invalid entry"

I had a phone call yesterday from "Amazon" telling me that a MacBook Pro and Airpods had been ordered on my account and the amount. If I had not ordered it I was instructed
to press "1" and talk with a representative.

Instead, I hung up and checked my order history - no MBP or Airpod.

They will ask for your login, or your CC number, or whatever personal info they can get. I always push 1 and then scream !@#$%^&*())_)(*&^%$#$%^&*() at the top of my lungs.

They are prob immune, but I feel slightly better, so a win for me. =)

I got a spam text that said "Who is this???"
I was tempted to answer back "Your worst nightmare..."
Instead, I just blocked the number. Best not to let them know the number is valid.
