Someone asked my number

Post by Murkey Thumb » 3 weeks ago

I got PM'd by a newbee (Mehmet123) on HairLossTalk asking for some advise on coming off Finasteride, basically he wanted me to phone him to discuss the issue. He gave his number and said he was from the UK. Obviously if I ring him he will have my number and then be able to identify me easily. So What should I do?

Create a throwaway Google Hangouts or Skype account and phone him through that?

I was once PMed on HairlossTalk to do a phone interview for a documentary about male pattern baldness (I don't think the guy ever finished that project though), and we did that on Skype, where my identity wasn't shown.

So yeah, you could just do that.

Sounds like too much effort just to find out its some sort of identity scam. If he really wanted my advice he could just get it over PM's.

Go into your phones settings and look for the "call" option.
Then find "additional settings", then find the "caller ID" option...
One of the options should be hide number in outgoing calls.

Hope this helps and who knows, a romance might blossom with this guy. Good luck.
Choose your orbit wisely.

For a second I thought a girl had asked a member here for their phone number, then I remembered I'm not on impactofslayerdom.be

Why not just ring him using Skype?

I think that would be the worst of options. Why would I want a random guy to know what I look like. He might be a mentalist for all I know! :D

On Skype, you can call without using the webcam :).

I've been outed as technophobe! xD

He has messaged me again and agreed to just PM me. Basically he has just come off Finasteride and his hair is super greasy.
