315-273-1209; Extortion Scam?

Last night while I was laying in bed trying to sleep, I received a text message from 315.273.1209. The text contained personal information about myself and family, and the scammers are threatening to send people to my house and chop me up and kill me unless I send them $2,500. They sent some pretty gruesome pictures of people with blood on their faces, and they were missing body parts.

I googled the number and found a message board with a bunch of people who received similar messages from the same number. Please, write in if you received any calls or texts from this number. I’d like to know how you dealt with it.

It might be worth mentioning that a day before I received this text, a woman called my phone asking for Father Don. I don’t know if the two are related but it seems coincidental.

What’s Up With You, Yahoo!?

What’s going on everyone? It’s a beautiful Saturday morning here in the state of independence, and I hope it is by you as well. I love my Yahoo email services, and I’ve been a member for a really long time, but something changed during the last five or so years.

Everyday, I get hundreds of pornographic spam emails. The emails feature nude photos of men an women trying to sell dating services through websites and webcam. Most ask for personal information and/or credit card payment. I know they’re all fake, (not the people, the services) and everyone says just mark them as spam and forward them to your spam box, but after five years, this is becoming a pain in the ass.

Blocking them doesn’t work either as I’m starting to realize some of the email addresses continue to send advertisements. I’m not upset with Yahoo, and I’m not looking to cancel my services or anything like that, but I would like to know if there’s a way of preventing the flooding of my email folders from these emails. If I didn’t check my email daily, there would probably be 1000’s of these emails.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Do you have advice or suggestions?

Thank You! Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!

I 💙 You!
