My husband and I started receiving text a couple of days ago that said “Please make a voice call to 911. There is no text service to 911 available at this time.” I didn’t think too much about it at first but after receiving 4 more, I was kind of getting confused. I was wondering if maybe they were installing the 911 text service in my area or something…I had no idea. Last night, I noticed that the text came from the same # that sends me notifications from Facebook…that’s odd. I started doing some research and discovered that somehow, someone has hacked into Facebook’s SMS system and is sending these out to Verizon customers.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that if you receive these texts, do not reply and most definitely do NOT call 911 unless, of course, you have an actual emergency.
