Hey there, listeners. It’s Brett Molina. Welcome back to Talking Tech. So this happened to me the other night actually. I was saying last night because I’m recording this on a Tuesday, but you’re hearing this on a Wednesday. So this actually happened Monday night. I got this really weird spam text message and it basically said, “Thanks for paying your March bill. Here’s a special gift,” with a random link. Here’s the thing that was weird about it. It was coming from my phone number. And apparently it’s not just me. If you are someone that is on Verizon Wireless’s network, this might have happened to you too. I write about this in a story that you can read on tech.usatoday.com. Verizon said it is working to block these spam texts that have popped up that customers say they’ve received from their own numbers.
