    Mistaken for an "escort"

    I'm at home one night watching Batman Begins and all of a sudden I start getting a bunch of calls and text messages. These messages say things like "Heyyy"..."Are u available?". Even got a few explicit picture messages. So I text one of the random numbers and ask where they got my number. They say from "the ad for escorts on backpage". So I quickly go to the site and look up escorts in my state. I search my phone number and sure enough, there is an ad with my phone number in it. And now I have been getting calls and text messages non stop for the past 2 days. I even emailed the person to fix their ad, but no luck. Anyone else ever experience something like this?

    Re: Mistaken for an "escort"

    I had a buddy in High School that would get call's from Jerry's Homes in Des Moines. I think they put his number on some pamphlet.

    One time I was with him and a person called with questions about the caulking in their shower tub. Needless to say, we had a blast with that.

    In this economy can you really afford to turn down a job offer?

    Re: Mistaken for an "escort"

    never been in that situation but just read about a guy who (sort of) was.

    Pick an idea and tell us how it turns out.

    So... apparently a stripper has randomly selected MY phone number as the number she gives customers when they ask. How best should I abuse this? : AskReddit

    That sucks man. Give it another couple of weeks and if the texts hold steady or increase, I'd change my phone number. Definitely not the texts you would want the gf or wife to see...

    I have a friend who is a nanny and one time when she was looking for a job she put an ad on craigslist. Apparently "nanny" is (or at least was at one time) used a code for prostitute on craigslist and she received a bunch of respones asking for a titty pic, how much for a bj, etc.
