I found myself in one of those “durned if you do, durned if you don’t” type of situations…
I sell stuff on craigslist. Spammers have started to use the numbers in craigs, and texting people. At first, I thought it would be funny to text back “You’ve just signed up for cat facts!” (google it for the rest). But I realize that the texts are probably coming from a computer, not sent by hand. If I obscure my phone number or put it in a pic, then people will think I’m being shady (trying to keep them from searching for my other listings). So, I just have to put up with the occasional spam text, I suppose.
After a trip to Google, I found out that I can report spam through my service provider…but it’s a bit of a hassle.
