    Just got sent this from a (503-329-7330)and (430-216-8134)
    Not sure how they know my first name. I haven’t sent them anything. Though I did sign up with venmo last year! Is it possibly an information leak in venmo or possibly someone from venmo using the information, to try and scam people?

  2. I received personalised text having my name on it and clicked the link, will it do anything bad with my iPhone? Can it steal the data?

  3. Received this text from +1 (503) 801-3362. I clicked on the link out of curiosity it just led me to an empty page thankfully, then blocked the number. Took screenshot just don’t know how to send it or post it on here. Hate scams so annoying. Hope someone catches whoever is doing this.
