Today i was chilling in my bed (as i have a antibiotics-treated-in-progress flu), when i get a call, with the default ringtone - so i knew that was not someone in my groups of contacts calling.
I look on the phone screen and i see a endless string of numbers, but i decide to answer, because i was thinking - it could be my cousin or a friend (i live in a port city and many men here are navigators that sail, sometimes at very long distances from home).
Before i can slide to answer, the ring stops.
I try to call back, but, for the first time ever with this cell phone operator i get the error "Phone call restricted" or something like that... hmm...
After i take out the country prefix and do a google search on the number it seems it belongs to a business in Indonesia, specifically Jakarta - that sells used copy machines lols....
"Snap" i think then, i know where this is coming from!
The day before i registered a very desirable item on ebay (officially launched only last month, a high-end electronic device, i won't say more as i don't want ppl to think i advertise here), and i registered it with the lowest ebay.uk price.
Of course, i think this may have upset other people that sell for over-charged prices (i sell below Amazon price for example), especially the guy i "undercut" by 2 gbps
That guy is located in Sri Lanka (also S-E Asia i would think).
How did he get my number ? Well, the listed copy machine was on Indonesian OLX, a classified ads circle of sites, and i have the item also listed on OLX.Ro (the Romanian variant); luckily for me, my real name and address do not appear either on olx or ebay, just the untraceable phone number
That must of pissed him off so he decided to show me his anger, but hang up at the last moment - AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT I THINK happened.
Feel free to discuss
