I was in contact with a guy about 3 months back for about a month on and off. A ‘wrong number’ text. We talked and he just wanted to text and talk for fun. I never sent him photos, or videos. All via phone, no computers/web cam or anything. Anyway, he kept constantly on at me for photos and stuff and I said I’m no longer interested and blocked the number. Warning flags which I was stupid enough to ignore - changed his number once in that short space of time and two, the WhatsApp photo changed 3 times which looked fairly different each time. The only info he has off me is a shorted version of my first name, city I live, my number and a WhatsApp profile pic I imagine. He knows nothing else about me. I googled his number not long after blocking and found out several people had the wrong number text and he admitted it was a pay per text scam, one saying he was a Nigerian scammer. 3 months later he’s text me again on another number, I said I know you’re a scammer so don’t bother talking to me again, tried to deny it it and I blocked him.
He says his name is Darren Taylor and lives in Leicester but is Irish (thoughts he’s admitted to others he’s a Nigerian?) Says he’s a marine, recovering from an injury. The message he sends is a 30th happy birthday text to his pal Peter who he used to serve with.
So, do I have anything to be concerned about? Why would he again contact me after 3 months? Not sure what his end game is? Photos or videos? Does he think I’ll just start back up again?
