Heads up! Your text-leads will come from the following number: (203) 916-6816. Please note, we are not able to receive calls or texts to this number. If you need any assistance you can reach out to our Account Services team directly at (866) 342-9794 or info@gigmasters.com. Also keep in mind: There is no charge from GigMasters to receive text message leads.
