    Just got this text message from a complete stranger.
    It reads:

    "Hi whut u doin"
    "Its Larry Bubbles if you were wondering"

    I am certain I don't know this person.

    What should I text back?

    Have fun with it. See how far you can take it and report to us. It's like stringing along a scammer. I once sent a scammer to his western union to get money twice and no money. Sucker!

    Don't reply. It is click bait. If you reply, it only lets someone know that your number is active and ready to receive robo calls.
    Your witty response will be received by a machine.

    How do we know it's a robo? It might be legit.



    I once helped a Nigerian prince get some money that was being held somewhere.

    Just waiting to get my cut...

    It happens. A couple of times I've tried to send a text to one of my soldiers and sent it to a civilian by accident - it's stuff like "hey, formation will be 07:30 in ACU's" but some guy got outraged that his 8 year old daughter now had the phone number that used to belong to some loser specialist I had.
