So i didn't know where to put this, mods move it if needed.
This is not a conspiracy but more of a "wtf" type thing.
So, when it comes to personal information about me, i am relatively cautious, the standard stuff really, i have a "trash" email address i use for
signing up on websites, and i never put my cellphone number on any type of registration form, nothing special but i just do the basic things people
should do to guard themselves.
But, in full contradiction, i will give some info away so maybe someone can help me understand how this is possible:
I've been living in the czech republic for about 5 years, less than a week go my parents came to visit, and among other places, i took them to a city
called Karlovy Vary, an absolutely beautiful city bout 2 hours from prague.
Anyway, today at 11.30 am i get a text message, and since i still don't speak czech, i used google translate.
It's a text proposing a 15% discount if i use a real estate agency for student houses...in karlovy vary.
At no point have i ever subscribed to any website for houses in the city i live in or there, and i am not a student.
So can anyone tell me how this is possible? how the hell did they collect my cell number and sent me this text?
Of course the sim card just won a fantastic vacation down my toilet, but i would like to know if anyone has had similar experiences.
here is the website, just in case:
