A friend received a text message from my phone with a link which didn't work. I did not send the message. What is going on? Should I, or she be worried?

Hi hillburn,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to our community 🙂

 

Sorry for the late reply and any confusion over this text message.

 

If this is still a concern for you, can you please send a screenshot of this?

Thanks for responding Alex. I don't have a screenshot of the message which appeared on my friends phone but I definitely did not send it.

Are you able to advise the link that was in the text so we can investigate?

Sounds like your friend received a MMS from you, which Virgin's system used their BICS partner service to send it.

Sometimes this service does send erroneous messages and has done for years.
