I’ve had a ton of those scammy texts recently where just a random URL is sent from a sketchy email address to a group of like 20 people with phone numbers similar to mine. And this morning I think what was more annoying than the scam was the 30 minutes of other numbers in the group replying things like “STOP,” “I think you have the wrong number,” “what is this?” and “what are we trying to stop?” Etc. I finally just wrote “this is a scam stop replying to the group.”
And it’s not even these people’s fault. Scams only work because victims don’t realize that this weird text/email/voicemail is a scam. Just wish we could educate the world on what to look out for.
