Does Big Tech Sell Personal Information



Cordova, TN; October 26, in the year of our Lord 2020 -- Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing to be the voice of diversity in the gaming media, and media at large. I have noticed a pattern recently. This pattern disturbs me greatly. I have checked with other people and the same thing is happening to them. My phone number is on the do not call listing. Right after Big Tech asks for my phone number I start getting spam phone calls. Twitch demanded I do two-factor authentication whenever I did anything on my Twitch account. I log into the account on a new machine and must get a text or phone call telling me a number that I put in so I can be secure. Know what happens the following day? All of these spam, scam, and robo callers. It goes on for about a week and then dies down.

I do the Bing searches daily and the daily sets to earn a five dollar Amazon gift card. It normally takes me three weeks doing all of their things daily to earn that five dollars. I know the time may not be worth the money there. Every six months or so Microsoft demands I give them a phone number to get a text or voice message to ensure I am still active. My using the service is not proof of actually being active. My asking to redeem my points to earn an Amazon gift card is also not proof of being active. I do this and guess what happens the very next day? I get all kinds of spam, scam, and robo callers again. Again it lasts for about a week and then dies out. This same problem does not happen when I give someone at a store or in person my phone number. Why is it only happening with Big Tech?

The only other time in my life this kind of a thing has happened is when I gave out my business cards with my phone number on it at E3 events. I would get all kinds of spam, scam, and robo callers for about a week. Otherwise the only connection I see right now is giving Big Tech my phone number. I have talked to them and they claim they are not selling my personal information. I am at the point that I do not believe them. I do not like having to use a phone number for two-factor authentication. I do not like giving them all kinds of personal information. I believe they are somehow selling off our information to make even more profit off of us. Pay attention to the day after you give Big Tech some personal information. Have you noticed this pattern as well?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

God bless,
