Mystery Text Messages
Recently I have been getting lots of mystery text messages like these:
- 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.
