A guy texted me about an amp I have for sale. He wrote "I want to buy your amp. Can I Call or text you.?" First thing I noticed was that the area code was different from this area. I called his phone number and got some Google connect thing. I hung up, and texted him "Sure, call me." The he texted me... "Many getting agry for spamming and robotic text or call. So any code send me tell you the right code i confirm you not a robot, then i will talk to you" "Did you get the code?so give me first" Me... "Nope. My number is in the ad. Call me." Him... i sent 6 digit code show me right code please then i will call you now Me... "My number is in the ad." Him... "You have a code ? so give me first, then we can talk on the phone" Me... "It sold." I don't know why my "scammer antenna" wasn't up, but I googled and found this description. I should have picked up on his grammar. If I could, I'd send him a computer virus like AIDS or Ebola. Hi everyone. Just wanted to give a heads up about this scam that was new to me. Please let me know if I've posted incorrectly. I posted some furniture on Craigslist. Got a text from someone claiming to be interested, and they asked if they could call right away. They said to please accept their call, and type in a two-digit code to connect with them (they texted me the code). Well, it turns out the call comes from Google Voice, and the two-digit code links MY phone number to the scammer's google voice number. (I think the scammer's end game is to use their google voice number to scam more people, and when anyone tries to call back to complain, they get forwarded to my phone number. So it enables the scammer to hide). I fell for it. Luckily there is a remedy, which is to go to voice.google.com. If you've already got a GV number, go to settings, add new linked number. It will prompt you to enter the phone number you WANT to link to your GV# (your own). It will send you a verification code to enter. Once you enter the code, it will let you know that your number is currently linked to another GV# (the scammer's, presumably), and do you want to reclaim it? YES, you do! Reclaiming your own number will remove it from the Scammer's GV account. If you don't already have a GV account, you'll have to set one up, then link your phone number to it. Do the fix as soon as you can after being scammed, so that the scammer doesn't have time to make a lot of calls forwarded to you. Here's where I found out about it: https://archive.fo/7isfZ Sheesh!
