"I came and delivered to your house earlier today. I have a wild question to ask you, I was just wondering if you were single?"
Norfolk shared the message with Argos letting them know of a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) breach, according to the Daily Mail.
"May lead to this man getting nasty, he now has my number, name, address and came into my house to deliver the item. I don't know his motives; he could get malicious or share my details elsewhere!
"Yesterday I received a delivery, I opened the door and asked for this to be placed in the living room, that was all I said, closed the door, done. At 5pm I receive a text saying 'Hey'. I ask who this was numerous times.
"Only to discover your delivery driver in the Argos lorry and uniform has stolen my private phone number and proceeded to message me inappropriately. This member of staff now has my name, address and phone number, I do not feel safe knowing my data was accessed so easily and I am concerned as when I report this breach in GDPR he may react negatively.
"I am completely disgusted in both incidents of service."
