A Phishy Text From 32665

So I'm sitting here minding my own business, when a text comes in on my nearby cell phone. I don't recognize the number 32665, but assume it's AT&T sending me a text. I read the message and it says, "884924 is your Facebook password reset code". I then panic. "Someone is trying to log into my Facebook account!" Then another text comes in. Same message, but now providing a supposed link to Facebook. This is weird... The main reason being that I didn't tie my Facebook to this cell number. So, if I have any issues with log ins, they send it to my email. I got look at the email, that is linked to my Facebook account, and there is nothing there. By this time, a third text has come in. Same message. I just blocked it. Googling the number got me a ton of hits. It's someone phishing for account logins. Not just for Facebook, but other sites as well. Instagram, Twitter, etc. Just FYI.
