"I saw you in the cafeteria. I like you a lot. Sakis/Themis/Thanos has given me your phone number. I'm the girl who was persistently watching you. I'll be glad if we can talk. 69 ..." Hundreds of men have received this text message and have subsequently filed a complaint with the police.

The message has been sent on a mass scale from the following American and Canadian phone numbers: +17142664594 +17142264594 whereas the indicated contact phones belong to Greek operators: 6982284235, 6943544619, 6948904475, 6948926425, 6943544569, 6955741295, 6948359222 and 6947978267.

The high number of the message recipients has provoked the intervention of the police service to combat electronic crime.

The investigation shows that the author of the impassioned words is not a woman, but a man. So far, however, the reasons for his actions have remained unclear since the contact phone numbers do not charge large sums, nor are they used for advertising purposes.

The preliminary case file will be submitted to the Athens prosecutor's office.

The Greek service to combat electronic crimes has urged those citizens who have received such messages to report them on phone number 11188, send an e-mail to ccu@cybercrimeunit.gov.gr or use the application CYBERKID (for iOS and Αndroid operating systems).
