I was bored so I decided to send a message on my phone to a random number for a laugh.

I said 'Did you bury that prick Billy's body'

It was just banter, but am ****ting myself that the police are going to come after me.


What should I do?

Hahaha, well, did you make your number traceable? It really depends on your luck- if you're lucky, the receiver will just look at it strangely, and then forget about it. However, if I personally got a text like that, I'd pass on the number to the police- just in case, etc.

Basically, you could get into trouble... I just have one question for you:

Do you feel lucky?
Well, do ya punk? :lol:

Short Answer: Yes

Long Answer: You're f****d mate

The person you sent it to will almost certainly report it to the police.

Here's what you should do..

Gwt yourself down to Dover and get yourself on the next ferry out of here, then head to Switzerland, you'll be safe there

Oh ****.

Yes my number is traceable, the person will have my whole number.

****.

Surely if the police do bother investigating they will eventually discover it was just banter and I will just get a warning or something like that?

Could you get in trouble? yes. Will you get in trouble? Probably not.

If I were you, I would text the person again and say "sorry that was my friend he was trying to be funny" or something like that and you could also inform the local police that you sent a text as a joke but could be seen as evidence of criminal activity.

Could I not send them another text saying 'sorry it was just banter, I don't even know anyone called Billy. I just picked you number at random'

I guess you should but that will only reduce the chance of being reported by an insignificant amount. Face it. Your going away for a long long time.

Basically OP, you better start praying that nobody called Billy has gone missing because coincidences can be a *****.

You should be fine, if i got it i would have either sent back 'yeah!' Or 'who is this?'
Youll be fine... Probably
Good luck either way!

No thats a bad idea. Its too late to make amends now. In fact you should probably turn your computer off, police will likely have zeroed your location, maybe sent a swat team. My advice would be to lay low in the forest for a few months, until the heat dies down, then make your way to more lawless parts of the world, such as Afghanistan. Trust no one....

I don't think police officers would take "banter" as a valid excuse for causing someone to raise suspicion on the account of MURDER. Look, how old are you? If they see that you're a young man and explain yourself coherently, and being honest saying it was just a practical joke, the worst they can do is give you a very very very incredibly outrageously stern warning about not doing it again just to make sure you understand that

a) it's a pretty sick practical joke
b) that it's your own fault sending it to someone you don't know, so you have no idea how they'd react to it, and they reacted correctly to such a message
c) not to do it, or anything like it to that scale, again
d) ever
e) they probably won't take it as lightly in the future

Good luck mate

It doesn't matter if the person reported you as it is likely that you are under investigation from GCHQ anyway.

I know you are just being funny (well kind of). But I wonder what the possibility of a swat team coming to my house and licking my door down in case I have guns or something like that.

Yeah I definitely won't be doing it again. I know I shouldn't of done it. At the time I felt witty as hell, but a few minutes later I thought '**** that was stupid'.

It's been at least 1 hour. They can't be far off. You should leave the country before they get there. After that move to Russia and assume a new identity.
Edit: SWAT teams licking a door down is a funny image.
