Surely the carrier can track the number down, even if it is a throwaway. Even pre-paid have identification, and last time I looked, sending
threatening anything is still a crime.
I'm gonna go with a few people and say it was just a wrong number texting you instead of the proper recipient, although I guess you have to ask
yourself if you've earned the ire of anyone lately that would make someone want to send something like that in the first place.
Had a similar incident a few years ago with a 'douchenozzle' (love that word btw), that reckoned I dobbed him in for centrelink fraud. Got all kinds
of wonderful texts from him and random phone calls he was gonna come to my workplace and # me up and all that.
It ended rather quickly when I fronted at his doorstep in the process of sending one of his texts and called him out or I was gonna kick the door in
and come and get him. He cried foul to the cops, but luckily the local copper who I knew personally had seen all the texts and had opted to ignore any
calls to the address till the dust settled.
Needless to say I found him hiding in his bathroom, a smashed phone and a nice warning later and suddenly he had no further beef with me...
I'd be ringing Telstra or whoever this clown is with, and finding out who and why. Then go pay him a visit.
