I started getting them few months ago.
Local area code and even local prefix.
Both text and phone calls.
On few occasions I was on the phone with someone else, so I did an auto replay "Can't call now, please call back later" type of message, only to get a reply via text or call from actual owner of the phone number confused about my text as they didn't call or text.
So these scum bags spoof local numbers. I'm not sure why, but I imagine it's to verify live number for a higher payout when they sell the list.
