Another person has my phone number

I am getting text messages from companies that are obviously directed towards someone else. Also when I google my phone number it is verified by me and someone in New Jersey

Greetings @RachaelTotin,

 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We'd be more than happy to provide you with some assistance. 

 

The issue that you're having sounds like it's SMiShing (is the term used for phising via text messages sent to your phone). We can help you defend yourself against texting scams

 

Let us know if you're in need of further assistance.
