Strange Text Messages

Post by DocKlock » February 24th 2021, 6:47am

Fellow Lords, I need your help.

Last Friday I got this text message from 1 (386) 280-0588 @ 11:36 am. --
I've x'ed out personal info

Carol Sxxxxxxxxxx 315xxxxxxx - http:llmmy.jl.us/qn5HsMJ

Yesterday, got another slightly different one from 1 (267) 829-0638 @ 3:27 pm
Carol Sxxxxxxxxx 315xxxxxxx - http:ytmmx.us/JZXNdiwL

My wife Carol was in a nursing home for 9 years before passing away in May, 2014.
I'm really afraid to 'click' on these addresses, so I have NO IDEA what/why I'm getting them.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

Do NOT click on them. Pure phishing attempts. I get them, too. Scammers

They gathered her name from an internet database and are trying to get a response to get money from you.

No official government source or legit business would try to contact you via text message with an undisclosed provider of the link.

AS BL said- don't click the link, and as Smellody said- block the numbers as they come in. They will eventually give up if you don't respond.
