Final stretch to the end of the year. Everyone is trying to get their numbers in the black, and as a business of scamming people the telemarketers are hard at work. As usual, we should make sure their work is all in vain. Fuck these guys

509-644-3815 Loon Lake, WA - Fancy name, so we did a search for Loon Lake. The lake and/or town of Loon Lake shows up in various parts of the United States. California, New York, Oregon, Washington. That is about as deep as we looked.
Yes, of course, this is most likely your typical spoofed number. Telemarketers tend to either target large cities like Los Angeles and New York, or small communities with less people than your suburban high school graduating class. The Loon Lake in Washington, just north of Spokane, has a population of about 700 people.

email@example.com - Here we go again. Yep, that is the address the text was from. Bright and early on a Saturday morning.
There many red flags being raised in this text. Fuck you!
firstname.lastname@example.org - How to spot a new trend.
Second text of the day, about 3.5 hours after the first one. While the wording is a little different, it is the same message. Note the different address of the sender and link to "resolve the issue". Fuck you!
email@example.com - Less than 30 minutes later...make that three texts with the same message
Well, how many of these are we going to get? This may have worked if you fuck nuggets sent maybe one at a time and space it out. But, three attempts to scam someone in less than four hours? Fuck you!
firstname.lastname@example.org - So, we getting one of these every hour?
This makes it four. See you in about an hour. Fuck you!
email@example.com - That makes five!
Is this some sort of ad campaign? Maybe we should consider subscribing to Netflix. Fuck you!
4 December 2022
firstname.lastname@example.org - Sunday morning, here we go, first one of the day
Guys, you really need to shorten the email addresses and links. They look a little fake. Fuck you!
email@example.com - Second of the day. Seventh, overall
Bombarding one with these types of messages is the wrong approach. For one, you need to send from a more legitimate looking address. Come on, it looks like a file directory. You would need 2-3 business cards to fit that long ass address. Stay tuned, next tips will come with next text. Fuck you!
firstname.lastname@example.org - Three for the day
Here is another tip. Keep it consistent. Not only should you use a shorter, email address, it should be the same...or at least look the same...every time. This is the eighth text and the addresses are all over the place. Fuck you!
email@example.com - We got four. One more and we match yesterday's total. So far, nine phishing texts over two days. While this one is a little different, they have all been "from Netflix", regarding account/subscription payment.
Pro tip: When using the name of the company your are pretending to be, try to spell it correctly. Fuck you!

626-565-3642 Alhambra, CA - A la Jeff Foxworthy - If we look you up your number and it appears on lookup.robokiller.com you might be a telemarketer. Fuck you!
firstname.lastname@example.org - Oh great, now our subscription is canceled
Check your grammar and spelling. Fuck you!
6 December 2022
317-597-9519 Lawrence, IN - We love it when they try to leave a message and all that is there is silence. Typical telemarketers, flagged by the usual. Maybe it is Netflix letting us know there is an issue with our account. Fuck you!
7 December 2022
email@example.com - Oh shit, looks like they have escalated. It seems that our "membership has been ended".
Wait, four people got this text? Group phishing (and poor grammar) is a dead giveaway that it is scam. Fuck you!
8 December 2022
626-565-5211 Alhambra, CA - Refer to similar call from earlier. Same area code and prefix, with different suffix. So December will be Alhambra calls and Netflix texts. Fuck you!
562-583-2159 Seal Beach, CA - Fuck you!
626-565-5140 Alhambra, CA - You look familiar. Know any other numbers from Alhambra? Fuck you!
11 December 2022
firstname.lastname@example.org - Early Sunday morning text from our friends at "Netflix".
But wait, based on the last text from you, we thought our membership ended. Therefore, there would be no need for you to have my current information. Patiently waiting for your next bullshit text. Fuck you!
email@example.com - Same message from different address
Well, at least the links match. Maybe we should click in the link to save our account...but after we finish this episode of Stranger Things. Fuck you!
15 December 2022
626-565-5319 Alhambra, CA - Here we go with another one from Alhambra
There is a message, but it seems like a butt dial. All we hear is random chatter, like from telemarketer office. Fuck you!
17 December 2022
439-117-6057 Unknown - Hmm, 'unknown' and 'new' area code.
We did a search for the number, and nothing came up. So, we searched the area code and found this:
Area Code 439 History:
Area Code 439 has not been assigned for use by the North American Numbering Plan Administrator. Area Code 439 is officially planned as a General Purpose area code which is typically assigned to a geographic area. If you receive a phone call from area code 439 it is a spam call. Any phone number such as 439-xxx-xxx does not exist.
Yeah, fuck you!
19 December 2022
58189 - Oh shit, we got $85! Maybe we can use this money to pay for our troubled Netflix account
Wait. Deborah...Debbie. B Josephson...BJ Debbie BJ...Debbie Does Dallas? Fuck you!
20 December 2022
240-789-8199 Rockville, MD - Back to back calls, just two minutes apart. Fuck you!
240-789-8199 Rockville, MD - Is there a performance center in Rockville? Like an arena, stadium, concert hall, school gym? We just want to see a band like KISS perform in Rockville...just to hear Paul Stanley say something like, "Rockville, are you ready to rock? I said, are you ready to rock?"
How about Fuckville? Fuck you!
21 December 2022
+86 (21) 8187 1963 Shanghai, China - Did some telemarketer hubs relocate/expand to China? Maybe they forgot to spoof a local number. Maybe India spoofed a number that was way off from our location. Meh, fuck you!
310-679-4462 Hawthorne, CA - Okay, this spoofed location is at least in the same country. Still, fuck you!
26 December 2022
firstname.lastname@example.org - Oh good, a text at 4:35 in the morning. Must be really important. We thought our account was already settled...as in, it already terminated a few weeks back.
This shit is played out. You need another scam. Would like to recommend Hulu, Amazon, Disney, Paramount or other streaming service for January. Fuck you!
30 December 2022
email@example.com - Wow, end of the month and still using this idea to scam people. There is one more day in the month, but tomorrow bring a Saturday...what are the odds that we get a text about this same damn subject?
Pointing out the obvious, there is a slight chance that anyone receiving these text would check their account rather than clicking a link in a text with poor grammar and from some weird ass email address. Oh, and this is if we have a Netflix account. Best regards, Fuck you!
