MELVINDALE, Mich. (WXYZ) - Shelling out money to pay your cell phone bill may never be a pleasant experience.

Gemini tells 7 Action News, that a few minutes after she left the store; she received a text for an employee.

She says she was scared and angry and felt disrespected by the unwanted advances, and asked that the texting stop.

“If it were me I’d fear for my safety. Does he have her address?  I don’t know. Does he have access to the photos and everything on her phone? I don’t know. I don’t know, it’s scary,” says a worried Mom, Anne Reed.

Gemini sand her mother reached out to 7 Action News, “to warn anybody and everybody.”

Mother and daughter believe you should be able to trust a company you give your money to not harass you.
