So I’ve run into something new this morning. I’m getting texts from 91740 with verification codes, but they do not identify their source (my banks etc. always identify themselves). I have never received anything from this short code before and I have not been able to identify it.

There are no links, etc. to try to phish me to a fake site of some sort, so I’m sort of at a loss as to identifying which account someone is going after. Or if it’s actually a valid source.

I would appreciate some suggestions on this and if anybody has a notion as to who that short code belongs to, I’d appreciate it if you shared the info.

    It could be someone is attempting to access an account of yours and your account is setup with 2FA, so the account is sending you the code because your number is associated with the account and the hackers can’t get to the 2FA code to gain access. I would change all passwords to your accounts and enable 2FA were possible.
