I’ve been getting a lot of spam texts and calls lately. It’s very likely those are the culprits, especially since they are only incoming, unless you have another reason to doubt your fiancee.

My work has a two factor authentication so whenever I log in to anything on our network I have a text sent to my phone to verify it’s me, it’s super annoying and a new thing so he might have something similar

It’s pretty likely that the numbers are spam.  My work phone gets 3 or 4 spam messages a week (way more when I first got the number years ago).  Keep an eye on it.  If it happens again, you can always ask if he recognizes the numbers on the next bill?

I get them very occasionally from stores and restaurants I frequent, ex: Red Robin, Dollar General, Popeyes.

I second everyone else. I get a lot of spam texts, especially the last couple of weeks, after I signed up for a new credit card and gave them my cell number. I also have the two factor authentication that someone mentioned above where I get a text with number and I have to put the number in as my login – I have this for work but also for my bank account and some other online billing things.

I get spam/scam texts sometimes too. I’d bet that’s what they were, especially since he didn’t text them back.

I am not kidding, I have about 20 blocked numbers in my phone from spam texts and calls. If he was texting them back I’d be suspicious but that’s not the case so I wouldn’t worry.

toomuchdiva :  sorry but… How detailed into the phone bill are you going that you see 5 messages in one day and notice they were not real numbers? Like that does not seem like something someone would notice in a million years unless they were actively looking for something or…

toomuchdiva :  Are you actively looking for something to pin to your husband? Because it honestly just sounds like you’re grasping for anything to seem ‘mysterious.’ More and more websites require phone verifications to log in. Two websites that regularly have me verify with a text code are my Gmail and my PaychexFlex. Both of which I use on a regular basis for my job.

I have literally never looked at my phone bill texts or calls because I have no reason to and they’re both unlimited. Stop saying “I can be paranoid” and admit why you’re looking through the phone bill and pulling out numbers. My husband and I both get spam calls at all hours of different times of day sometimes daily. It still has never prompted us to check the phone bill. What did your fiance do that you’re not disclosing here or are you really just so paranoid you look through his stuff and he has no privacy? Funny feelings don’t come out of nowhere.
