The modern world offers incredible technological wonders, but the downside is that it also allows people to send out creepy text messages and inappopriate DMs.

The following creepy text stories are not paranormal; these messages were sent by everyday people who either had axes to grind or obsessions they hoped to fulfill. As such, these may be some of the creepiest text messages and DMs you will ever read.

    A Former Customer Began Harassing Them After A Transaction

    From Redditor /u/EnderPlayz286:

    I run a gift card business... I make the card, we plan on a meetup, I give them the card, I get paid, we go our separate ways.

    I got a message from a guy wanting a card for a friend's birthday. All fine, I made the card, and we met up. I got my money, and we left. A week later, I got a text from him. Thinking it might be a thank you, or a review, as I often get those, I checked it, but it just said, "I like your shirt."

    This got me a little suspicious, as I was wearing my favorite shirt that had a Transformers logo on it, so I just replied with a "Thanks," and moved on. Then I got a message almost immediately after I put it down, saying, "I like Transformers too."

    I immediately got paranoid and moved away from where I was sitting. I then replied with a warning that I will call the police on him, and that I had his number, and that I still remembered what he looked like. He backed off after that.

    My business is still running, but I'm much more careful now.

    A Person Told Them They Wanted To Have Relations With Their Corpse

    From a former Redditor:

    I once received a text that said, "I cannot wait to make love to your rotting, beautiful corpse." I'm unsure of who sent it, if it was meant for me, or if it was a distasteful prank text from someone I knew - but it certainly sent chills down my spine.

    An Older Man They Barely Knew Offered To Leave His Family For Them

    From Redditor /u/sweetpoison02:

    A man ten years older than me sent me a long message declaring his undying love for me, said he was going to leave his wife and kids for me, how he couldn't stop thinking of me, and he wanted to be with me forever, and how he'd divorce her so we could be together...

    I was 18 and barely said a few words to him

    A Family Friend Sent A Cryptic Message About A 'Kid'

    From a Redditor:

    At about 11pm, a family friend texts me this (as accurately as I remember):

    Look, I thought I could do it. I can't. It's been six months since it happened and nobody even cares anymore. He's just a kid. I do not want to be any further involved, ask someone else.

    About 30 seconds later: "Oh, sorry, that was just a mistake. I meant to send that to my brother, we're just messing around."

    I don't know, man.
