Author Topic: Txt message from GUM clinic?  (Read 14167 times)

Offline marty_mcfly

I received a text message earlier today. It is definitely not a genuine text because I regularly have checkups with my GUM clinic and was given the all clear just two weeks ago.

Furthermore, my GUM clinic uses my usual phone number and not my punting phone number where this text message arrived.

My punting phone number is only given to escorts and AW, so they are the only ones who could have sent this text.

This is very worrying because there has recently been a spate of AW hacking attacks on certain escorts and UKP members.

Either someone has hacked my AW account or some escort that I have seen has anonymously sent me this text, warning me to have a check up as perhaps she has an STI and wants to warn me about it.

Has anyone else received such a worrying text?

GUM clinics will, if requested, take on the task of informing sexual contacts of someone diagnosed with a STI.

Possibly a wg, having been diagnosed with STI, and who has your number will have passed it to the clinic (along with lots of others!).

Suggest you make that call and get tested.

Exactly .... would be interesting to see if anyone else gets one as well .... or if anyone else admits it.

I only got tested two weeks ago and have no symptoms at all. Maybe it is a prank, but my concern is how could they have got my phone number? It has to be some escort that I saw or contacted via AW or that my AW account is hacked.

I agree with this. A quick Google of the number indicates it's a genuine clinic but do your own double-checking. Your own GUM clinic will only send you very bland texts, but this one looks like it is as a result of a WG letting the clinic reach out to her clientèle upon catching an infection.

Really? You mean the GUM clinic will take all the numbers of punters from a prossie's phone and send them all a text to let them know they have come into contact with someone with an STI? Really?
Incidentally, has the OP rung the number from whence this text came? Call me an old cynic but it may not have come from the GUM clinic.

It will be someone you have seen who has saved your number who found out she was infected so gave your number to the clinic so they could inform you that you need to be tested again.  Clinics do this if the girl in question doesn't want you to know she is infected herself but the clinic has stated she needs to inform everyone so they will do it on her behalf.

This is nothing to do with AW or being hacked.  GUM clinics will do this to ensure men she has seen get notified that someone they have seen is infected so they need to retested.

I would have thought infected WG gave them your number is most likely answer

Not just prossies, anyone who is positive. there was a comedy series in the telly recently about a chap who had to contact his old partners, but if you dint want to do it yourself they do it for you.

Don't gonorrhoea take 2-3 weeks to show up?

By far the simplest explanation is a WG gave out your number.  No need for a conspiracy theory.

Quite responsible of her but also quite indiscrete.  Not sure how I would feel about this.

I've had it done a few times and get  unwanted text.


Normally I just change sim cards but this is a hassle as regulars save my number.

On a few occasions, I looked up the details and have given them, some feedback (in a unfavourable way), and text have stop.

I must say I would rather know about it than not know!!
I will have to see who is taking a break as I punt in the same area.
Thankfully I have not had a text

The girl you saw last is offline at AW!  :scare:

Yes I noticed that but do not want it to be true!!!

I meant MMF!

She did the right thing.  It's normal for people at risk to be contacted. Bit  of a bummer if you're married and used your regular phone, but it could plausibly be a "wrong number" or a "prank".

However,  most networks delete texts that aren't read after 72 hours (3 days).  And I expect most punting phones don't get switched on very often - only shortly before a punt.  I'd advise any London-based punters reading this to switch on their phones and check for texts, just in case.


Marty's last review! I've not seen her!  :thumbsup:

Legitimate texts from this clinic come from the following number:

+447860031201.
I know that as I was there on Monday this week and I still have a text from them.

Marty, be thankful that this girl has gone to the effort of giving a list of numbers to the clinic staff.  Many would not.

Marty just wondering if you have been asked to phone a 0900 number for a prompt reply?  :thumbsup:

I do hope those that didn't know before understand this is a genuine service from the NHS. If you get a text, act on it.

Also works the other way. If you are diagnosed with an STI, you can give them numbers of wgs.
Your name won't be revealed.  Imagine having to call round all the prossies you've seen since you were last tested to tell them you've got HIV (worst case :scare:)

As someone has mentioned - if you are in a relationship, use a punting phone.

I'm gearing up for another punt and of course this sort of threads pops out! It ruins everything!
