    I’ve been getting a spam text (or 2) every day for over a week now. Different numbers every time but all links ends in dot-cyou. The first one was this TransUnion one. I’m sick of it. And since they all come from different numbers, I can only block each specific number. This is why I don’t give my cell number out anywhere but somehow someone got it and it’s frustrating as all get out.

    I received one today, as well. The URL and the number it came from were all red flags but I still wasted time today confirming it. :(
