I changed my cell provider about 6-7 months ago and went ahead and just got a new number. I’ve had a google voice number for a decade so I have always just forwarded all calls to that number; I don’t even ever give out my “actual” phone number. In fact I have to look it up on my phone if I have to use it for some kind of thing that needs to verify my actual phone.
So since I got my new number about 3-4 times a week I get a text from some random dude who is clearly responding to either a personals ad on craigslist or something, or an escort ad or something. Something along the lines of “I read your ad; want some company tonight?”
I don’t respond and basically immediately block them… but what exactly is the scam on the part of the person posting my number? I doubt its someone fucking with me in particular because I’ve never actually given out the number and I use google voice for outgoing calls. And it’s hard to imagine it’s someone fucking with the previous owner of the number; I mean it’s been since like February.
What it going on?
