Spam messages advising to contact a TNF that is resporged to Ring Central

I am receiving spam texts advising me to contact 8555000660 for student loan forgiveness, considering I never had a student loan as I never went to college I suspect the end user for this TFN is perpetuating fraud.

No I am not, the TFN 8555000660 is what I was advised to contact and that is a Ring Central resporg'd number. The text message is spamming me to contact 8555000660 about services I do not have with that company nor want.

I have no idea who what company it is, if I contact them the number is going to go right back into their harassment pool. I have had my mobile number for 17 years now. The company you are providing this TFN too is fraudulent because I have never contacted anyone for student loan work in any way, shape or form. I have never been to college.

Lance- you will need to contact them directly and have them remove your from any list they may have.  Your number may have previously belonged to someone who did own them...maybe?

Have you tried to block that number from your cell phone?

It's either you block that number, or contact them directly and give them the number that needs to be removed.
