I just got a call on my mobile from "Unknown", I always assume they're like cold callers or something when I get one like that so I ignored it.
Then I get a voice message, A woman speaking is asking for an interview with me, gave an address, time and date, and she has my first and last name (?!) saying I have 'inappropriate content' on my social media accounts. I don't have inappropriate content on my social media accounts, just to mention, but I'm freaked out. She said she's going to contact me again until I respond???

Ignore. Ignore. Ignore.

See how it goes. If it is constant for the rest of the week then go take matter to the police. Should be nothing especially if you have not posted anything explict.

Yeah it's probably a scam. Just ignore and if it happens again a few times, report it.

Where is she telling you to meet her?
Somewhere near my area, London, I've checked out the place she told me online and there aren't any proper organisations there, just cafes and stuff like that.

I'd probably be the same if I got a call like that. Just don't stress. Just keep track if it does occur again.

It's a scam, they don't have anything on you. Unless you sent naughty pictures to someone you didn't know pretending to be a hot girl, apparently that happens now. In either case, I guess they'll ask you for money to keep them quiet; assuming you didn't give them anything, you can just ignore them.

Thank your lucky stars you don't have a landline - you tend to get more calls like this on it than actual real calls! Just ignore it and don't worry about it - they don't know anything about you, or even who you are.

deffo ignore, but if she does call again, answer and question her! Ask to speak to the manager or threaten the police. They'll soon stop if theyre dodgy!
