    So I just got a random message on Instagram from a guy asking if I had tinder because I (apparently) matched with him. The tinder profile had a link to my Instagram on (the one he messaged me on) but sent him a random link as a message so I think he was just checking if I was real- the link is a virus or something apparently .

    I do not have a tinder profile or even have the app on my phone . I haven't even been on the app to send anyone messages , especially with links in . But this profile has a link to my real Instagram (which is private btw)? Imposter ?!?!??

    I've googled the issue but haven't come up with anything definitive . I'm wary of weirdos now.

    1. What do we reckon ?
    2. What can I do about this ?

    O ****, maybe ask him to screenshot the tinder profile or something and send it to you
