    Birthday texts

    I just got a happy birthday text from straight talk 21663. It isn't my birthday and I don't remember giving them that when I signed up. Just looked at the first page of the sign up over there and I don't see it there either.



    Just plain creepy, anyone know where they are pulling that info from?

    they likely have access to homeland's citizen database. that is creepy from the standpoint i did not give them mine either but they wished me happy birthday.

    consumer reports recently did a thing compiling a list of agencies/companies that report consumer behavior and are required to furnish a yearly report or more if you are turned down for something.

    there is one or more that handle cell phones. so even though we are not in contract we could be watched and so the personal data would be attached.

    i collect cell phones about a month ago i was out and ran up on 2 atrix at a great price. i wanted to check them out so i called att. i chose my tmobile prepaid phone to make the call. the girl asked me my name and i told her a fake name and she said hold please and came back and said hold please and i do this often so i ask why is this taking so long because i knew how it worked. i got annoyed and thanked her and hung up.

    she called me back in about 2 minutes and used my actual name. i was not on her network, i have no contract with anyone, she was searching for who i was most likely while she had me on hold and when i said goodbye and hung up she came after me. that was most the creep ed out feeling i every had. oh both phones were fine.

    they know who we are!!

    The number it came from is the same for account refill alerts.

    The odd thing is they got my birthday wrong so somewhere out there is a watch list with the wrong info in it.

    Hmm, my birthday is this month. Maybe all they know is the month.
