Vodafone customer from Reddish, Greater Manchester, Adele Berry, contacted the network provider over a problem with her bill and was subsequently bombarded with flirty text messages from a call centre worker in South Africa.

Berry was put through to the Vodafone call centre last month and made small talk with the man who answered her query, but never suggested that she was interested in him.

The South African worker, who called himself Miguel, sent a string of messages to 21-year-old Berry, calling himself her “future hubby” and asking after his “in laws”.

“I’m hope I’m not being too, how can I say, forward,” he said, after promising to buy her shoes and telling her how “super beautiful” she is.

Miguel sent 18 messages following the call, and Berry feared that he may try to approach her after he referred to his family in Liverpool.

“It is quite scary, it is quite distressing. He won’t leave me alone. Being pestered by someone I don’t know gets me quite nervous,” she told the Manchester Evening News.

The call centre worker has since been suspended by Vodafone, which explained that while it has a number of call centres in the UK, the company also sends some callers through to their South African office.

“We take allegations of this kind extremely seriously,” a Vodafone spokesman said. “We have spoken to Ms Berry and the adviser concerned has been suspended pending a full investigation.”
