Someone else texting from my GV number

Thought maybe one of you guys on here could help with this.... And before you read on NO JOKE, this seriously happened.

 

Today I was texting some guy on Craigslist about trading for an Amaze 4G (not for me). Well to my amazement (pun intended) someone else started texting him from my own Google Voice account. Now I have no idea how this could have happened. All phones that I have GV installed on are accounted for and according to Google, my account has not been accessed at any other location.

 

How the hell could this have happened, and how can I find out who the person is that is using my number? (For the record whoever is using it doesn't seem to have any idea that I'm having a conversation with someone else)

 

Any ideas guys?

Holy crap. That is awkward and creepy. I have never heard of this or seen this happen before. Wow.

Contact google voice (if you can...google support is not the best) Sounds like they have things crossed somewhere and the other guy texting is merely receiving the texts sent to your number and responding.

 

Also check the settings in the web version on google voice and make sure no new numbers have been mysteriously added. Somewhere some wires have gotten crossed.

Have you checked with your other split personalities, ScottSouth, SarahSouth, and MohammadSouth?

You said all phones are accounted for? What about all computers? Do you have 2 step verification on

According to Google my account hasn't been accessed on any other computers other then my own, so I'm going to assume they weren't accessing it through a computer.

Just checked and there was a number added to my account I didn't recognize and Google was forwarding my text to them. No idea how it got there, but I just deleted it so hopefully this is the last of this problem. Thanks a lot for the tip. I was so flustered last night after this happened that I couldn't think straight about how to figure this out.

 

It was creepy as hell to say the least.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
