Repeated Mysterious Phone Calls Make Me Think Scams Are Being Attempted
I finally broke myself of a bad habit. I'd been doing it much too often and it could've sent me down a very wrong road. But no more.
I finally stopped answering my phone EVERY time it rings.
Look at this:
I don't know anyone in New Jersey...or Iowa:
And I've never even BEEN to Alaska (although I want to go):
And Texas and California? Well, I'm getting calls from all KINDS of different area codes in those two behemoths.
Since I believe some one or some PEOPLE have been trying to scam me, I know longer answer the phone if I don't recognize the number.
It's gotten tricky since I'm getting the same types of phone calls from Kentucky.
The last time I answered one (and, no, I shouldn't have) was a while back and all I heard some low strange noise and then a rapid busy signal.
One time, I took one of these numbers and called it back from a land line.
These numbers are now all blocked, but I'm sure I'll continue to get more from other parts of the country.
Listen, I think this is some kind of scam, but I'll never really know for sure, so if this is happening to you, be careful.
