Today I received 4 texts from three different numbers over the course of the day. First one read:
"Are you available to help ira with electronic repair in Stamford. You have 1st priority. Reply 1 if interested, 3 if not" (phone number 650-727-7022)
Second text that came in read:
"Hi, a home owner in Stamford wants to get a quote for a home automation. You have 1st priority. Reply 1 if interested, 3 if not" (phone number 415-417-9971)
Third text read:
"Mira is requesting home automation in Stamford. You have 1st priority. Reply 1 if interested, 3 if not" (same number as previous text)
On this one I replied 3 and texted do not contact me again.
Fourth text read:
"Just checking why you're not interested? There's no monthly fee, and you can give quote online for free. It is only a small fee for a guaranteed appointment" (phone number 650-695-4677)
I replied with:
"What is your company name, your name, phone number, and extension?"
Of course there was no reply. I called the numbers and surprisingly they are not from Nigeria, but a "company" named Smith. Website is www.go__smith.com
with no spaces or underscores. I am just not going to have a working link posted for their trash.
Has anyone else dealt with this? I never signed up, showed interest, or even heard of them before. Periodically, another one of these scam services pops up that texts. Now they text from 3 different numbers in one day. Wonderful. So they are smart enough to know you cannot block more than several numbers so they just used a plethora of different numbers.
