JustEat Deliverer Sent Unsolicited Flirty Texts To Client

JustEat, the food delivery app, faced a web backlash after one of their deliverers started sending flirty texts to a client. The woman posted the exchange on twitter and things quickly went viral from there.

Michelle Midwinter had just accepted her food delivery and sat down to eat it when her phone lit up. The text simply said ‘hy’ from an unknown number, to which she replied ‘who is this’. The food deliverer made himself known after which he sent a barrage of flirty texts to her. Miss Midwinter posted the exchange on twitter commenting that she hopes others had not faced the same breaches of privacy.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Just a snippet of Just Eat’s response to my receiving unsolicited messages from the guy who had just delivered my food. Nice one Just Eat! Apart from him using my number in this way surely being in breach of privacy laws etc, they don’t really seem to take it seriously do they?? <a href="https://t.co/OVZkl0IW5f">pic.twitter.com/OVZkl0IW5f</a></p>&mdash; Michelle Midwinter (@ShelbyTree) <a href="https://twitter.com/ShelbyTree/status/952943354760912896?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 15, 2018</a></blockquote>

She stated: "I asked who it was and the person revealed they had just delivered my food".

"At first, I was shocked at the fact someone would approach me in that way, but that turned to feeling very uncomfortable as I realised this guy had my name, address, and phone number".

"I am astounded by the number of females who have contacted me saying a similar thing happened to them".

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">2/2 Changes there will be and how these will be implemented. I believe they are taking this extremely seriously and I hope this will pave the way for national changes to the way our data is protected, and more importantly how females are protected</p>&mdash; Michelle Midwinter (@ShelbyTree) <a href="https://twitter.com/ShelbyTree/status/953364208544034817?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 16, 2018</a></blockquote>

At first, JustEat offered Miss Midwinter a $17 voucher, but seeing the news snowball into a massive social media storm, the company quickly sent out a press release apologizing for the incident and stated it would look into preventing incidents like this in the future: "We're looking at our procedures to understand why incorrect and inappropriate information was given out on this time".

I always thought my uber driver would be first, but if you have to distrust every service where do you stop?
