are getting sneakier. I know they ghost numbers with your area code so it looks like you're receiving a local call often, and a newer trick is to have a similar prefix as well. But today something elae happened which I think is coincidence but scary nonetheless.

My phone rang. I looked at the number because if I don't recognize it I don't answer. I see it's my daughter's number. But her contact photo isn't on the screen like usual when she calls me. I looked at it, perplexed, for like 2 seconds, then answer. Piece of shit telemarketer. I cut him off immediately and said how the fvck did you get this number. He tried to go into his spiel but I didn't let him, then he hung up. I called it back. Daughter's phone to vm. Few minutes later she texts me and says she cant answer she's in class. I asked if she called, she says no.

I bundle mine and my kids phones and my number is the account holder. Can those assholes get numbers on accounts now? Or do you think it's a coincidence? Im pretty sure there's nothing to it. But damn it's scary when your kid is involved  >:(

I’ve been getting calls lately that come up as “Fraud Alert”. For the hell of it I answered the other day and they asked for someone else.
I said wrong number and hung up. I wonder if they can get some information just by answering. Who the hell knows anymore.

Most of the loosers here answer those calls because they have no friends that will.

I like to fvck with them if I have the time, telling them that they've reached the county sherrif's office or perhaps that I work in the white collar crime unit of the attorney general's office and when I start questioning them on their identity they usually hang up.  :lol
