    I've received about 15 of these stupid texts since about Aug 2021. It was rather frightening at first until I figured out it's a scam. I strongly advise not to respond to any of these texts/calls. It only encourages them to ratchet up their threats. At first they did not include any specific info about me and then they found my name and those of relatives, but some of their info was old. You can block number of you want, but they haven't text me from the same number each time.
