One day, Grace received a message on social media from an account that she assumed was just a bot account - a fake account that promised more followers. Instead of ignoring the message, Grace decided to troll the account and have a little fun. Grace started teasing and mocking the account, as she figured it was just an automated messaging service.
However, she soon realized that the account was actually a real person named Rahil. She started to receive weird messages from Rahil. He sent over a group picture of Grace and her friends, and he was able to point out exactly who Grace was. This initially worried Grace - as her instagram account was private - but she decided to brush it off and just send screenshots of the conversation to her friend Kayla. Kayla messaged the account, too, and sent over troll texts. They laughed it off and didn't think much of it.
About a month later, Kayla and Grace were having a normal sleepover when they received a strange message from Rahil. Somehow, Rahil had known that they were together, and he started sending them scary texts with very personal information. When Kayla and Grace tried to throw him off with incorrect information, Rahil somehow knew the truth behind all of their little games.
Grace and Kayla started to freak out. But things really escalated when Rahil continued to send over personal information that a stranger would never be able to know. Rahil knew where they went to school, where they lived and other personal information about their families.
Finally, Grace and Kayla had enough and decided to report Rahil's account. They stayed up all night unfollowing people that they didn't completely know on their accounts.
Later, Grace decided to tell her brother about the situation, as she was incredibly scared and worried. But to her surprise, Grace's brother responded by letting her in on the truth - it was Grace's brother behind the account the WHOLE time. He decided to prank them in the most extreme way possible.
Grace was so mad at her brother, but she was also relieved. When she looks back, she still thinks to herself, "We didn't know who was sending us scary texts." Because of that, she has learned her lesson and urges people to NOT engage in weird conversations with strangers online.
