Do you get Chinese voice mail spam?


Isn't it really inefficient to spam US cell phone numbers with some weird Chinese recording?

8. I googled it

 


Itís a scam targeting Chinese immigrants.

It says it is the Chinese embassy, and they have to deal with some fines for a financial investigation in China.

10. I have been getting them daily on my new cell phone that I've had for about six weeks.

All of the calls that I received were from the 713 area code (Houston) so I went ahead and blocked the entire area code.

16. DON"T LISTEN TO IT!!! It's a subliminal trick.

Come November, you will vote R, thinking you voted D, and will send in you ballot. It's the Shaolin Secret Subliminal Suggestion method of stealing an election.

Hang up immediately.

18. Nothing subliminal about that show. We saw it in 2018, expected dance and music.

There was that, but also a lot of political and religious messaging, much complaining about bad treatment by the Chinese government, and in the stories there were many unexplained (deus ex machina) happy outcomes from dire circumstances.

I won't see any more of the shows incarnations, though it was a treat to see the Detroit Opera House after many years.
