London Mint Office payment request by text?
One thing I know is, text messages are not safe, they can be spoofed...
but I'm getting these text messages and I'm thinking they may be scams but at the same time, I do buy from this company, however I have an online account and no outstanding invoices are there. There's a chance I might have ordered a free coin from one of their mail-outs, but I don't remember clearly. I've emailed them and asked them to confirm it but they are being pretty vague about it.
They say that there might be 2 accounts connected to my address but they are not really confirming it. I asked them to send me an invoice if I owe them money and I said if they are sending texts, it's not appropriate as that is a common vector for scams. I said I need a reliable and official request for payment from them, then they said they would have sent an invoice with the order. well I usually chuck away all the paper when i receive an order from them so if there was an order that wasn't tied to my online account, I might have thrown away an invoice if there was one. I don't recall though and I'm asking them for an invoice now.
Should I be concerned? these text messages seem to be threatening me with additional charges. I don't want them to start bullying me, I've asked them for a safe and reliable way to pay them but so far they seem reluctant to do so.
