Prepper and Shooter. Bizarre phone calls.
I have never actually seen a copy of this magazine, so I can't really say whether or not it is any good. But the cover looks interesting. As soon as I can track down how to buy a copy, I'll be able to provide more information on the publication. It's amazing to me how many Survivalist/Prepper magazines there are now. Some of them are actually quite good, though you tend to see the same authors cropping up in all of them. I'd like a little diversity, both in writers and subject matter. You can only read so many articles on long term food storage or fire starting before your interest begins to flag.
I am getting random phone calls from an entity the caller i.d. identifies as West Union W.Virginia.
I checked on the internet and there is actually a town by that name in West Virginia, but I suspect someone is hoping that recipients will think it is Western Union calling. The phone number is 304-873-4020. If I answer the phone, the line goes dead. If my answering machine picks up, there is no message. If I call the number back, I get a message saying the number I have called is no longer in service. Running West Union West Virginia phone calls has turned up nothing. Usually, if it is a scam or some kind of sales call, you can run it on google and you get lots of links to posts complaining about X caller, or explanations from people who know about X caller, as to what they are about. But I came up dry with this outfit.
I don't care enough to pay money to use a reverse call lookup service. It's no doubt another phone scam, I seem to get a lot of those calls even though I am on the "no call" list.
