A WOMAN was left horrified after she received a text from a bloke who had got her number off her dog’s collar.
The dog-owner had been taking her pet for a stroll when a stranger stopped to stroke her pooch – but little did she know he had been taking note of her personal details.
The anonymous woman shared a screenshot of the text she received from the ‘creepy’ man just hours after bumping into him.
It read: “Hey, I got your phone number from your dog’s collar. Thanks for letting me pet her. We should hang out. :)”
As unsettling as that text was, the sender wasn’t doner, following up with two further messages less than five hours later.
They wrote: “Hello?
“Why do you even have your number on her collar if you don’t want people to text you? What the f*** such a tease.”
It goes without saying that the woman had her number on the dog’s collar in the event that she should ever go missing, so that if she was found her owner can be contacted.
The messages have since been shared on Reddit where they have left people baffled.
Commenting on the post, one wrote: “That is next level creep.”
Another added: “If you’re getting bad vibes or they’re looking at your dog’s collar for a bit too long, you need to leave.”
“Oh I don’t like this,” added a third.
