Mystery Text Messages

Recently I have been getting lots of mystery text messages like these:

Strange Text Messages

  • Ron is asking for above ground pool in Hopkinton. You have 1st priority. Reply 1 if interested, 3 if not
  • Hi, a homeowner in Brockton is looking for an estimate for the inground pool. You have 1st priority. Reply 1 if interested, 3 if not
  • Hi, a homeowner in Tyngsboro wants to get a quote for pool contractor. You have 1st priority. Reply 1 if interested, 3 if not

According to a post in RemoteCentral.com, it turns out the text messages is from gosmith.com.

gosmith.com is a service that matches homeowners with projects with professionals that can handle the project. I am not sure how my phone number go into their database. I think they purchased a cellphone contractor list and just sending out text messages. I certainly wouldn't have signed up for their service, and I never received emails confirming that I am listed as a contractor.

You are correct these are from gosmith.com. Why do they keep texting from different numbers?

They change numbrrs because they are bottom-feeders who are phishing, and because they don't want you to block them. These guys are spammers, their sms tactics suck, and their privacy invasion merits a special place in hell.
