Gordon Wayne Watts (Lakeland, Fl:
I got a call to my private cell phone from (304) 264-5185, but it was apparently a SMS (short message service) from the U.S. Coast Guard's Emergency "Warning System," addressed to someone else (not me), and not a spammer/scammer: They simply did NOT update their data bases, and were attemtpting to call a member of the Coast Guard regarding what I think was an alert about emergency weather conditions in his region. I tried calling them back but got a voice mail! Grr... LOL --However, I guessed that (304) 264-5100 was another extension, and guessed right, and the person at that extension was able to take a message to look into this and remove the wrong number & update their databases. MY CELL phone was prepaid, and used up my minutes -besides, this guy's life might have been in danger -so, their prompt attention might not only save my prepaid minutes but save their member's life as well.
