My cell phone rang at 1:12AM this morning. Normally, middle of the night phone calls usually indicate someone is in trouble. I groggily woke up, answered the phone, and listened to a robo call message that my Verizon account had been suspended and needed to be verified, and that I should press “1” to speak to a representative. Even half awake, I was suspicious and hung up. I then googled the phone number – 1-800-781-2978 – and found it appears to come from Asia. At least the text on the page looked Chinese. I tried the church and received the answering machine. At least, I know my phone number is active and working. It was definitely a scam call. Now, two hours later, I’m still awake and pondering the meaning of this wake up call. SIGH!
