A concerned woman has revealed how a Cell C employee allegedly took her cellphone details secretly and later contacted her via WhatsApp.
Posting on Twitter on Thursday, Felicity Chauke said she went to a Cell C store to update her cellphone contract in Malelane, Mpumalanga, in July.
She was surprised to receive a WhatsApp message a few weeks later from the employee who had assisted her. It was a man.
According to screenshots of their WhatsApp conversation, the man appeared to profess his romantic attraction to her.
However, Chauke expressed her disappointment that he had invaded her privacy.

Cell C reacted to Chauke’s tweet, saying it viewed the alleged incident in “serious light.”
The company undertook to get more details while addressing the matter internally.

Chauke’s tweet has sparked an intense debate on Twitter. Many tweeps praised her for exposing the alleged invasion of her privacy.
@HumanlyAwkward tweeted, “I hope they dismiss him and if he ever comes to your house get the cops. Men need to learn boundaries.”
Others however felt Chauke could have handled the situation differently.
But really girl, you could’ve just blocked him. He liked you and the only way he could talk to you is by getting your number from the system – you were with your mom so I understand why he didn’t ask for them then. Don’t be that girl hle.@S11E11B11A
The debate continues to trend on Twitter.
