Here we go, two thirds of the year is over, and we are heading into the home stretch. August was a pretty packed month of calls. Typical.
1 September 2021
310-846-2715 Inglewood, CA - Whoa! New number, what happened to the old stand by? Do we have a new location and numbers for this month? Been a while since we had a call from Inglewood.
Anyway, first day of the month and these guys are already working on scamming folks. To that, we say, fuck you!
2 September 2021
310-504-8748 Redondo Beach, CA - Oh, here we go! 310-504-XXXX has entered the chat. Back to basics with old number. Fuck you!
8 September 2021
310-504-8084 Redondo Beach, CA - Wow, long break. It seems that robocallers have holidays, too. Fuck you!
9 September 2021
310-504-5960 Redondo Beach, CA - These guys just slowly creep up on you like a predator. Fuck you!

800-347-9700 - This could be Citibank, but it could also be a spoofed number claiming to be Citibank. Do we have an account with Citibank? Maybe. We have lots of accounts with various banks around the world, most of them are legit. We usually let our 'accountants' deal with our financial issues. Then, we have other 'associates' deal with people like telemarketers. Fuck you!
11 September 2021
310-795-5057 Los Angeles, CA - We have no clue what this is. Somewhere between telemarketer and wrong number. By default, we lean towards telemarketer. Obviously, we did a quick search, nothing came up. But, maybe if you look it up now, you will see this post. Congratulations, fuck you!

870-663-5286 Arkansas - This is sneaky. This is a straight up scam!
This number does not come up as an AT&T number. Searching AT&T and this number give negative results. This also means, this not not a 'free msg'. We are half way through the month and now last month's bill is finally processed? No. AT&T generally has their shit together, bills get processed early in the month. Oh, little gift? Most likely a fucking virus. And, that link looks highly questionable. Fuck you!
347-604-0527 New York - Awesome, we get two of these on the same day. This pretty much backs up our theory that this a scam. You screwed up by not talking to corporate about who you were targeting. We may have fallen for the first one...no really...but this second one was a rookie move. Now, we all know what to look for, and anyone ready this, all 5 of you, now know about this scam.
Sure, they changed the words a little and the link is different. But we know that link will lead to some shady places. Time to come up with something else. Fuck you!
15 September 2021
347-610-8856 New York - This is what we call a trend.
310-504-6908 Redondo Beach, CA - What, no "little freebie" from "AT&T", this time?
Those paying attention will recognize the area code and prefix. Yep, back to the old cold call. Darn, we were hoping for more free shit. Fuck you!
469-981-2010 Royse City, TX - We get a little excited when we get a call from some random or new location. So, of course we had to do a search and see what this place has to offer.
Royse City is located North East of Dallas with a population on about 15,000. For comparison, the American Airlines Center seats about 20,000, depending on the event. You can basically hold a town meeting for Royse City in the AA center.
Anyway, fuck you!
281-845-6211 Arcola, TX - Another small town in Texas. We know they say to not mess with Texas, but y'all got telemarketers there. Plus, Arcola has a population of less than 3000 people. Fuck you!
16 September 2021
800-347-9700 - Is Citibank really trying to reach us? Or, is this a spoofed call? If it is Citibank, we are guessing that we have an account with them...so, what are the odds that this is an attempt to upsell some package. We consider that classic telemarketing. Fuck you!
17 September 2021
310-504-5788 Redondo Beach, CA - Here we go, again. Fuck you!
310-504-5788 Redondo Beach, CA - Round too. Fuck you, two!
firstname.lastname@example.org - So, we back to this shit, again?
Where do we start? Email address. jeaninegsiemeringsp0266. Do you really need the 0266 at the end? All that mess in the beginning is hard enough to fit on a resume or business card, and what are the chances that others have taken the name jeaninegsiemeringsp...which would require you to add your birthday?
21 September 2021
929-215-7942 New York - Oh, we got another one. Okay, ignore the fact that appologies is misspelled. This one is a little sneaky, but we all know the game by now.
Hmm..."down time on September 16"? How would we even notice this?
But, get this. Look at the dates in this post. Note that we first started receiving these types of text on the 14th. Then, as expected, on the 15th. Then, what? A break! No text for 'free gift' on the 16th. Is this due to "signal down time"? Well...we did receive at least one attempted phone call, ignored, of course. So, there was no real down time in signal. Fuck you!
22 September 2021
209-630-4642 California - Another Silenced Call. We were kind of hoping for another free gift. Fuck you!
23 September 2021
917-860-8864 New York - We get a little exited when we get these kind of texts. This is the seventh one. This means we have about a week to get to ten.
862-225-1181 New Jersey - Meh, average call blocked by Call Protect and flagged by the phone. Fuck you!
