So, one of my personal rules is to try and avoid giving out my personal contact info to someone I'm wanting to do a deal with on a forum and try to use the tools the forum provides for traceability sake and stuff like that. Well, broke my rule this week and it has kinda backfired...also kinda funny so I wanted to share. I recently contacted someone about buying some car parts off this site via conversation instead of replying to the post. The seller asked for my contact info so he could send me more pics of the items. So, I was excited about what he was selling and sent my email and cell number so he could text of email me the pics. We transferred a few text over the course of the week about the parts. When I got up this morning I noticed a missed call and voice mail from his number. Checked the message and it was him saying "I'm looking for sex, let me know if you are available." Odd thing was he identified himself in the voice mail as he had done in the text. Message was kinda rough sounding so I thought it may be some prank. The car warranty people are always calling from other peoples numbers, so why not this...right?! Well, the more I thought about it the more it bothered me, so I sent the guy a text and politely told him I wasn't interested in the parts he was selling. Got a reply, "OK, thanks anyhow" and that was it. Well, phone rang about 30 min's ago and it was his number. I answered...there was a pause and the guy on the other end asked if I had any girls available. Told him nope and that he had the wrong number and he hung up. Needless to say, I need to learn to stick to my own rules and shoulda made the guy send me the pics through the message on the forum vs giving up my info so willingly. Live and learn I suppose.
