I need to help getting work at home. I have experience in computer
i got a text to my phone also i would like to know how they got my phone.
i got the same personalized text, but knew it was too good too be true!
I got the same text message, but with my name on it too. Just got a second one today with a different message, but they know my name. I am worried that some of my information may have been hacked. Can anyone help track down how they are getting information like my name?
Was not a call; was actually a text: "Hey Toni, not sure if your good on $$$ but i just made $350 online at (webaddress for workhome888.com) and its real. -Brad"
I Googled the number-Washington, D.C. area code. I do not know anyone from this area, and it is obviously a scam/spam. How can scammers & telemarketers text you, now??!!
