Long story short I helped out someone who had just been beaten up and robbed by a third party. Drug deal gone wrong kind of thing. Just a kid who had been pistol whipped and beaten and robbed. I let them use my phone to call for help and alert their family. I also managed to get some info on the aggressors.
Worst case scenario, they called people and messaged people on Instagram. I blocked the people on Instagram afterwards (I only post non-identifying stuff on there anyway) but I’m still anxious this may eventually come back to me.
What are the odds the aggressors here could find out where I live based off my phone number? I know there’s “track people based on phone number” services online but always assumed they were fake / shady. Do I have anything to worry about?
And no, I opted out of a police report on the off chance it goes to discovery since I did not want my info publicly available. I told the cops what happened but gave no statement, my name, anything like that.
