I was just reading a thread about phone messaging and it reminded me of what happened recently and might still be happening. I got a message a while ago from someone asking what I thought of their new haircut ,there was no pic and I replyed to them they must have the wrong number as I didnt know it. So anyways they reply sorry.
Then a day later they ask what I thought of the haircut anyway and I replyed there was no pic and they reply would i like one. i didnt bother to reply any further then they send me a pic but its not the sort of haircut i was thinking of, it was a webcam pic of a bloke with the nether regions shaved.
I had a bit of a laugh over it and even showed it to dh who became furious. I didnt hear anything back again and thought it was harmless and I have a feeling dh wiped the pictures as my memory has now gone from that month but now I am getting messages from another number saying "nice tops" (I have maternity wear on gumtree so i sorta thought it was to do with that) but I replyed what tops as I sometimes get strangly worded messages from gumtree customers from overseas (scammers) but those are on email not ever on the phone. So I get another message saying "ur tops look great for summer" and I replyed "what tops and who is this " but no reply back since and today i thought I would try to call the number and it just doesnt connect ,tried off my other mobile and the same it just does nothing no message, no ringing, its weird.
Is there anywhere I can report this too or get telstra to just check the number to see where its coming from? it doesnt bother me too bad but then again if someone is using my gumtree details to prank call me then I would like them to stop it.
