Spam dating site
The other possibility in your situation might be that your boyfriend left his own phone somewhere, and you grabbed it, saw the dating spam, and were confused as to where it came from.
This is a much more serious situation - but not why you might think.
I just block them, try to use fake numbers if I have to when signing up for things that "require" a number, and leave it at that.
If it becomes an ongoing issue, I'd likely call my local authorities to see what I could do on a more formal level.
All a spammer has to do is buy those emails or cell phone numbers, and then blanket message them all the same thing. I strongly suggest focusing on a solution to this issue, instead of thinking about what your boyfriend did in the past.
In this case, that might include getting the number blocked, having a quick discussion with your partner to let him know what's happened (and showing him this blog post), and finding the positives in the situation - such as you finding the text before the kids did. I get spam of all kinds on my phone, even when I'm not signing up for random dating sites to review them.
"Can a person get messages from one of these mobile dating things if someone doesn't sign up/or leave that particular cell number?
I had one from which transfers into a sex website (porn pics, etc.) and I never have been on one of these in my life! I am afraid my boyfriend is lying to me."My first reaction was to ask the reader for more information to clarify her situation.
I'm answering the question with this assumption in mind, although, I'll cover the other possibility at the end of this post.Therefore, to answer: what you've received is most likely spam.A quick search for found that they've used several Florida-based Google Voice phone numbers to spam random cell numbers with the message, "Hi I put a pic on my page on just sign in and check it out ;-)".Could this dating spam have come from your boyfriend's former adult dating site use?It's possible, yet more likely that your cell number got thrown into some database somewhere (similar to emailed internet dating scams).
Your email (which was much more lengthy than I could share here) detailed a history of trust and commitment issues between you and your partner.
