I've gotten 3 over 3 days from 776-836, none of them list which site the code is for. The text I receive is:

Your code is: XXXXXXX. Thank you.

Anyone know who uses this service and 7 digit codes?

In response to: Andy

Ok, everyone here has to chill. This number isn't a spam it's just a number that many services use to send out login codes and things like that. If you get texts from it, it's probably just because someone accidentally put in your number. We all can simmer down a bit. No one is stealing your information. I know this because I've been tested by this number twice. Once from eBay while I was signing up and once from an app called telegram (both legit). Point is, nothing fishy is happening. It's just a number that is presumably rented out and shared by Microsoft (judging by the companies mentioned). Hope this helps.

Caller type: Text/SMS

ok, great
how can i get them to stop texting? i have sent the stop and get response saying i will not receive any more texts

but then i do. this has been going on for 5 days and 3-10 times per day. no i just delete. the problem is annoying and breaks my work concentration when i look at phone to see if business related

"Your verification code is ________

-Blizzard Entertainment"

I've been texted upwards of 18 times in a single night for the past two weeks. I've just been silencing my phone, but I had to block noreply@blizzard.com this morning because I woke up to 210 emails about my "verification code". I got another 119 emails sent to my spam within half an hour of blocking the email.

I reported this to the company and told them to never text my number again. I'll be filing legal action for excessive harassment if it doesn't stop. It could be dangerous to silence my phone. I could miss an emergency call from family. But I'm obviously not going to listen to my phone blow up from texts every night.

Caller type: Text/SMS

i keep getting the same text for the last several days, several times per day

Nothing before or after. Just random. My complaint was the first under that new number so I guess he's stepping up his 'game'. I guess treat it like a nightmare or panhandling scams: ignore it and it'll go away.

Use XXXXXX as Microsoft security code. I was sleeping when the messages came. And when I logged into my account, I was asked to enter my phone number again to get the code )I have two steps verification on my account) and the code came from a totally different number: 837401. And not from this 776836 number. who are these people?

Received text message on my smart phone: "776836: Yahoo Msg for (do..): Account locked for your safety. Unlock at login.yahoo.com." Received: 12:19 AM, Mar 22

Yes, I have a Yahoo email account; no, my phone number is not connected to Yahoo or ANY thing on the web. I did not respond.

Seems to me since the above text came to a phone number that is not associated with Yahoo or any wwwdot, it must be an auto-dialer on a phishing expedition to mine personal information.
