Is it wrong that the first thing I did after reading this comment was to check what was behind me (Absolutely nothing, as it so happens, but the thought still counts)?

Indeed.

I'm hoping it's just a wrong number. It's not a private no, so if I wanted, I could call back.

If I wanted...

There's a new SMS scam going around Vic, NSW and WA where SMS messages are sent threatening to kill you if you don't deposit a certain amount of money in a bank account ($5k, I think). If that's the message you got, call Crimestoppers.

Nah, the bit I posted was the message in it's entirety. I'm not dumb enough to fall for stupid scams like that. (I actually got a Nigeran scammer spam email the other day. Only edited so that it was some Chinese bloke affected by the earthquake)

WTF?! *hugs you* It's probably just some idiot kid doing a practical joke, but will you report it to the police any way?

It's probably a wrong number - I seem to get a few of them.

And for now I'm just going to ignore it. If I get any more messages from the same number, then I'll do something about it.

That is on a par with the phone calls we got about an impending tsunami. That was actually part of a marketing campaign thing, except 90% of people didn't hear that disclaimer.

People have some odd, odd ideas about what makes for good marketing these days.

I would totally text back "I gonna get you first".

I am not sure I want to actually want to contact this person, wrong number or not.

Might be the start of a con... there's a memo going around about a scam where people get SMSed "I'm going to kill you" and "I've been hired to kill you - pay me $5000 and I won't"

If that happens - go to the police. They're trying to track down who's doing it.

Well, I ignored the first message, and haven't gotten anything else from them.

Dude. I too would probably call back and ask why. But then I'm perverse like that.

I considered it. But decided that, just in case, it wasn't the smartest idea.
