Scam: Cell Phones

Scam to Collect Cell Phone Numbers

Mike received this one—it said it was from ‘Catherine Wendt’ but it was someone’s Gmail account as the sender. The message asked Mike to send his cell phone number because I needed an assignment done quickly, and asked him to watch out for my text.
