Matthews Surveys Scam Text Message

I got a Matthews Surveys text message that came in today from 602-671-0014 and went as follows: "Hi, this is Beth, at Matthews Surveys. You have been randomly selected for a survey by text instead of calling. To begin are you (name redacted)?" My response: "Hi Beth. To prevent a possible phishing attempt, please provide me with your company's website, contact information (phone number and email). Thank you. Their response: Thanks for your time. Have a nice day. So I'm going with this as a phishing attempt. If you're a legitimate company, you should have no issue providing this to your "customers".

    Got the same from Anna in Michigan. Was a 734 number.

    My response was a bunch of random questions to her...

    I'm not expecting a response

    I got a text today stating Anne from Mathew survey. I blocked the #.

      Anne just showed up in my texts, as well. Wish there was a place to report/forward these idiots.

    I have received multiples of this text starting in July. My number is from a completely different state from where I am residing today. All say the same things as above. Two times they have texted me using a number from the state I currently reside and then I just received another text from a completely other state that has no relevance to me. One time I replied with no I'm not "My real name" and they replied with. "Thank you for your time". IDK what to make of this other than it is annoying. I don't plan on giving any info.

    Just got the same text, asked where they got my number and they said from a registered voters list. Blocked.

  • September 23, 2020 at 3:24 PM by an anonymous user from: Gilbert, Arizona, United States

    I received this message from my native area code. This was the first tell-tale that this was a scam, as I see others here have different numbers. Got this text on 9/23/2020. I asked the same question the lady on this article did and got the same answer.

  • September 18, 2020 at 4:57 PM by an anonymous user from: Boca Raton, Florida, United States

    Received on my phone asking if I was my girlfriend.

    This probably came from Rocket Mortgage as they are the only party that would have her on my number.

  • September 18, 2020 at 1:31 PM by an anonymous user from: Wilmington, North Carolina, United States

    I got the same text from "Beth" on 9/18/20.

    I wasn't quite as responsive as the commentor above, but I do believe "Beth" got my point.

    Scammers everywhere these days!

  • September 12, 2020 at 1:01 PM by an anonymous user from: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States

    I asked what this was and they didn’t respond so I blocked.

  • September 10, 2020 at 5:39 PM by an anonymous user from: Eau Claire, Wisconsin, United States

    Same group called my home and did a survey asking me detailed questions about who I planned to vote for then asked me to confirm my full name . When I refused and made a good effort to not give it to them . They called back the next day but this time asked for me specifically from the start by name and that I had to confirm my name before the survey they planned to give . The first time they called they said they were from Matthews survey at the end but at the beginning said they were some latina independent survey company . The second time they called I asked who they were and they said we are just Matthews survey asking question that affect your community ...We need to confirm your name ... Then I said "This is an anonymous political survey?" They hung up on me . About 10 minutes later I got a call back and the same female who had just hung up on me was on the other line again. I asked "who is this? What is this for?" She said again Matthews survey and that she needed to confirm this was(my full name) . I then got mad and told them to NEVER CALL HERE AGAIN! ". About 10 minutes later they called my house again and a different woman's voice was on the other line and she asked . "This Matthews survey we are calling to complete a survey regarding the issues within your community Is this (MY FULL NAME)"? I told them if they called here again I would inform the police and have not had a call back since . Whatever this group is doing asking for a survey on politics and how you plan to vote than asking your personal info is illegal . I do not know what they are trying to do but it is not good .

    Thank you for this information! I received the very same text message as you all, and will delete! Thanks again.

  • August 31, 2020 at 4:37 PM by an anonymous user from: Norcross, Georgia, United States

    On Monday Aug, 31-2020 at 5:29p EST I received the EXACT same text from (770) 872-6248:

    "Hi, this is Beth, at Matthews Surveys. You have been randomly selected for a survey by text instead of calling. To begin are you (First Name, Last Name)?

    The number is most likely masked and not a real number, scammers use auto-generated numbers to match an area code with your Geo-Location.

    Steer away from even replying to them, any reply will at least mark you as a valid number to try further attempts.

    On Saturday August 22, I received the following text from (702)-297-5720:

    Hi, this is Beth, at Matthews Surveys. You have been randomly selected for a survey by text instead of calling. To begin are you (_)?

    Definitely a, phishing attempt as stated above. I posted so others who Google for more info will see,these (insert derogatory term) are using multiple numbers to try and get people's personal info.

    I hope this helps someone.
