Telephone Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
The first call was said to be from the US Government. The second said something about a cash advance place. I couldn't understand. I told them to not call me again that they were a scam. Then they sent me several other text messages. Calling me a stupid bitch and dum bitch. Also, saying reporting them would not even do anything. I blocked the caller so he can't call my cell. What I would like to know is how he got my cell number. I thought they are not listed?
