I was texted by someone whom I didn't know and they didn't know me saying that I had sent them an image saying about "having sex with your ex on a Thursday isn't cheating its a throwback." And I never sent the text and no one could have sent it from my phone as it has been in my pocket all day.


Im now worried that my phone has a virus or something.


Any insight into how this could have happened would be great!!!

Are you sure they are telling the truth?

If you have an iPhone, change your apple id password as some accounts have been compromised.

If the message was sent using iMessage, then it could be that your iCloud account has been used by someone without your permission. If it was a normal text, it's very unlikely it was a virus - if it was an iPhone, then even less chance. It's probably just a prank, I would imagine.
