How did someone get my mobile number?
Personal Mobile phone Data has been sold to advertisers by many companies and organisations who you may have had contact and business dealings with. And: did you ever publish your number on the web? On Craigslist for instance? In the "casual encounters" category or somewhere else...
Why do companies buy my phone number?
Simple. To send you messages and call you, exactly like spam mails. To sell you stuff and services. To make money – and lots of it!
Surely these companies cannot be allowed to do this?
A lot of them are ‘treading the boundaries’ of safety and privacy. Unfortunately technology advances faster than the law.
Will my Child’s phone number be sold to a company?
Probably, yes. Children frequently use their mobile ‘phones to text and retrieve game ‘codes’ and ring tones etc.. Your child’s mobile phone information is likely to have been sold already. Also your child may now be using a previous family members phone which was sold.
What if a Paedophile obtains my Child’s telephone number from a website like a classified ad site or a social networking site?
Paedophiles tend to contact children pretending to be children themselves – this is known as ‘grooming’. We recommend that your child uses a safe 'nickname'.
