Text Messages coming from 320-98

Miembro

I keep getting text messages from 320-98 saying it's verizon and wanting me to click a link to schedule an in-store appointment with Brian.

Is this legit? I never click links from text messages like this but still do not like recieving them.

Short Code 32098 is not registered, according to https://usshortcodedirectory.com/directory/?fwp_short_code_search=32098&fwp_sort=brand_asc and http://www.short-codes.com/codes/search/32098

Appears to be a spamming/spoofing/phishing text.

Forward the text to SPAM (7726).

Hello Barton12,

 

I would be concerned too if I received a text message out of nowhere like that. Have you recently visited a store or set up an appointment online? Have you made a recent purchase and chose a local store to pick up your equipment?

That's the scary part is Yes we were in the store and made purchases about 2 weeks prior to this message but nothing was scheduled to be picked up and there is only one rep in that store that I ever deal with because he is simply THE BEST!! I will forward the message to SPAM and let you guys investigate from there as I am also receiving calls from people that I do not know saying I have called them and I have not called them so someone is using my Verizon cell phone number to make calls phone calls.

That is called SPOOFING where a scammer has 'spoofed' their originating number with some (non)random number. Nothing you can do about it, short of changing your number but still being susceptible to having the new one spoofed as well.

Thanks for those details, Barton12. It sounds like someone may be using "spoofing" technology to disguise the origin of their calls, and are using your number to display on the Caller ID. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to prevent this, as they are using online technology and can use any number. It is not done through Verizon. To help prevent unwanted calls in to your phone, check out Call Filter:  http://spr.ly/66021iKjs

I got a similar text from the same number (32098) claiming to be "Chiquita" from the "Cleveland Store" - I live in Maine and while Cleveland sounds like a lovely city I have never been there, much less to that store.  

It asks me to reply "E" to stop, but I get a warning that there may be charges applied to my bill by replying to that number.  I know some shortcodes are ways to give money to people so I don't want to risk that if that is the case.

Is 32098 a valid Verizon shortcode?  I would hate to block someone from communicating to me in the future should I need to actually receive communications from you, but "Chiquita" is texting me every 2 weeks and it is getting annoying.
