[Resolved] BSNL, Airtel, Tata DoCoMo — messages from unknown numbers
I have been getting messages from unknown numbers lately. First it was in the beginning when i bought my BSNL sim... I used to get many calls from guys in Belgaum saying that my number actually belonged to a friend of theirs, where I got my sim, that they're the police, they want to know my location, name, etc. and they were asking me to change my sim. I used to get many calls from them for about a month. It finally stopped after a while. That was a year back. I kinda got calls from about 6 -8 numbers from Belgaum.
I've been getting calls from one of those numbers again.
And then a few days ago a got a forwarded message from an unknown number [[protected]]. I asked who it was. No reply. I asked again after a few days (i.e., today) and i got a call from that number. There was swearing from the other side and the person was asking me whether I was Nisha and whether I study in bangalore and that my number was given to him by some paramedical store guy and that my number's from bangalore. they were asking for my name, what I was doing, etc.
Later on today I started getting messages from another number. I thought it was some of my good friends from class playing with me. It turned out that it was some unknown guy called Sanjan who was saying that he was my close friend. I never knew a Sanjan in my life.
Same thing with Airtel. I kept getting messages from this unknown Airtel number saying "I love you so much Sangeethaji."
And within one or two days after I bought my Tata Docomo sim (i used it as my personal number - for 3 of my close friends n family), I got a message from some Karthik (Airtel number, [protected]) or someone... asking for my name and whether we can be friends.
It's bothering me. Getting messages from these unknown men annoys and worries me. I simply don't understand where they get my numbers from.
That Sanjan guy's messaging me. now he's saying that he's Shankar [[protected]]... I've got no idea who these people are. And it's disturbing.
When I go online in Yahoo! messenger, it's like this (because i have an ID which has my name in it). I can manage that somehow. I've got no idea who these people are. It's like I have no privacy when I get messages from unknown numbers pretty oft in my mobile.
