Hey - someone called my TextNow saying they were a district attorney or some shit. I’m pretty sure a chinese guy called me and then handed the phone over to a white guy (or an accent less guy at any rate). I hung up pretty fast. Not sure they used my name i don’t think so. But they called a bunch of times before i blocked the number. The call went through my regular iPhone once or twice even though i closed text now app. Anyone know: 1. Is this definitely a scam? Is it conceivable to be busted after the fact for being a john? 2. Does this mean they have my real iPhone number somehow or can TextNow call even if app is closed? Thanks guys!

DA wouldn't call or text you. They would send LE to your home.
NYPD does have a text that they will send you if you called one of their sting ads and never showed up. Pretty much trying to scare you by saying you are lucky you didn't show up and you would be arrested if you ever do show up to one of their stings.

Mexican cartel scam called me four days in a row last week from four different numbers. I blocked the number every time but was tempted to mess with them and write back but figured if would
End quicker if I didn’t.

Wait until you get the Mexican cartel you’ve wasted my girls time you better pay scam
Yeah, I got that one through Whatsapp. Don't link your contacts through Whatsapp or any app other than your phone! If you need a number just look it up yourself. The scammers will grab the info.
