I've had my new phone number for three months now. You would think that would be enough time for its previous owner to notify her friends and family, if not her creditors, of the change in her contact info. But no, Danielle (if that is her real name) has been playing it cagey, letting me deal with those callers and texters that she hasn't yet brought fully on board.
Here's another sampling of my texts from strangers. I have yet to reply to any of them, but it's getting pretty tempting.
