The other day the news was on the background and they teased an upcoming story. Guess the story. Yep. "If you received a message about a overdue package delivery...beware of scam...". Well, look what the first call/text is.
2 September 2020
661-238-5659 Tehachapi, CA - First we had Connecticut, then New York, now California. I know the postal service is not this incompetent. By the way, this is supposed to be from the USPS. I doubt the fine folks there would ever 'forget' a package from March. Again, six months to deliver something when we have shit like next day and same day delivery? Fuck you!
3 September 2020
310-849-6140 Beverly Hills, CA - Kinda a relief to just get a regular telemarketer call from a spoofed number. No text for some undelivered package that has been sitting at some unknown facility since the Stone Age, CBD promo, or some other scam. But still, fuck you!
5 September 2020
800-433-4659 - One of those typical Saturday telemarketer calls. Did a quick search and the 800-433-XXXX is linked to phone scams. Shocked! Fuck you!
8 September 2020
310-944-9872 Redondo Beach, CA - This is the first of three calls within about a twenty minute span. Fuck you!
201-771-5601 Dumont, NJ - Second call of the day. Fuck you
|Three calls within twenty minutes. |
203-643-0897 Brandford, CT - Well, this one left a message:
I did a search on 844-790-2700 and first results are from robocallers. Sorry, "Nicole", you will have to cold call someone else. Oh, Nicole...one more thing...fuck you!
714-686-9614 Gardena, CA - Oh cool, I have another package from six months ago that has yet to be delivered. Tell you what...take that package and shove it up your ass. Fuck you!
9 September 2020
310-398-5894 Los Angeles, CA - Today happens to be California Admission Day. On 9 September 1850, California became the 31st state. So, it is fitting that I get a call from California at six o'clock in the morning. Anyone want to guess what this was about? They left a message...
Clue, the transcript was in code...or in another language. If you guessed the call came from some Chinese telemarketer, you are correct! I wonder if the message was to inform me of an undelivered package. Fuck you!
747-236-9056 Los Angeles, CA - Another undelivered package. For those keeping track this is the fourth package that I have sitting in some secret warehouse. At least this one is from August, so only a month in storage. Fuck you!
10 September 2020
302-480-3805 Dover, DE - This is apparently the fifth package that needs to be delivered. Wait, five packages? Could these be the five lions? Maybe if I get all five, I can form Voltron. Fuck you!
12 September 2020
email@example.com - How is anyone supposed to take this shit seriously?
How many red flags do you see?
- Shit email address
- No information, just a link
- Link based on foreign soil
Check, check, and check. Fuck you!
15 September 2020
714-313-1598 Anaheim, CA - Dude, pro tip, check your grammar. There are no commas, periods, or any sort of punctuations in this text. Random words are capitalize, some which should be capital are not.
So, Apple wants to put a sticker on my car, but I need to contact some fool with a gmail address? Dude, another pro tip, at least get an Apple address. Also, 'small sticker'? Like the ones that used to come with Apple products? I feel like Apple could save a lot of money buy just bringing those back. People used to put those on their cars, for free. Fuck you!
16 September 2020
firstname.lastname@example.org - No, seriously. That is the address
You know how many people can type without looking at their hands? Well, trying to type out this email address, I found out that I am not one of those people. I got the first part, then it went all to shit, as I needed to hunt and peck. Fuck you!
17 September 2020
951-406-4304 Riverside, CA - Coming down from the rafters, Call Protect dives down to intercept this call.
We are in voting season, so get ready to be bombarded with these telemarketer calls. Fuck you!
21 September 2020
646-394-1034 New York, NY - Another one of those calls where the Asian bot leaves a message in a foreign language. Do you understand the words that are coming out of this bot? Fuck you!
23 September 2020
858-504-7890 Rancho Santa Fe, CA - Sounds like an expensive neighbourhood. Too bad your town is infested with telemarketers. Fuck you!
24 September 2020
628-266-3533 Corte Madera, CA - Go fuck yourself!
310-599-3843 Compton, CA - Second call in less than an hour. Go fuck yourself!
323-290-7962 Los Angeles, CA - Third call of the day. Another foreign voicemail that makes no sense to me. Fuck you!
27 September 2020
310-560-6788 Santa Monica, CA - First call on a Sunday evening. Fuck you!
310-560-6788 Santa Monica, CA - Second call, four minutes later.
No message was left. Obviously, not that important. Most likely a telemarketer. Fuck you!
28 September 2020
682-382-8941 Fort Worth, TX - Take a closer look at the image below. The first call came in and it was intercepted by Call Protect. This is obviously a Spam Risk, thank you Call Protect for the confirmation. Note the number ending with 2841 (at the bottom of image). Fuck you!
|28 September 2020|
682-382-8942 Fort Worth, TX - Now look at the second number, which is at the top, yes they left a voicemail...we will get to that. Note the that second number came through, but was silenced thanks to a feature on the phone. The number has the same area code, same prefix...and the suffix is 8942, just one number higher than the previous call which was less than a minute before.
These two calls could have been executed at the same time. Attacking from multiple angles, so to speak. Here is the transcript of the message:
While "Nicole" sounds like an actual human being in the recording, it does not excuse the fact that this is totally a spam call. Note that it was labeled as "Spam Risk" buy the phone, that is the first strike. Second strike, the call back number listed is not the same as the number which the call originated from.
Yes, of course I looked up the number. Any wild guesses to what results came up? Bingo! Spam! I also looked up "Interstate Brokers". They have a website that has not been updated since 2009. They may not even exist. Plus their offices are in Los Angeles.
The other result from "Interstate Brokers" is Interstate Brokers of America. One of their social media accounts has one post from almost 5 months ago, with no likes or comments. They also have only three followers. Another one of their social media accounts simply does not exist. I think that is enough research for this to conclude.
How many strikes is that? Yeah. Fuck you!
29 September 2020
762-435-5839 Monticello, GA - Oh look, it is "Nicole", again.
I also noticed that "Nicole" called earlier this month. Look at the 8 September entry, she called from Bradford, CT. Yesterday, it was Fort Worth, TX. Today, Monticello, GA. Where is this bitch going to call me from tomorrow. Hey last day of the month is tomorrow, better get on that flight soon. Fuck you!
30 September 2020
310-849-4501 Beverly Hills, CA - Oh, how we have missed those Beverly Hills calls. Congratulations, you got flagged by Call Protect and silenced by the phone. Fuck you!
