A 21-year-old student has been bombarded with text messages calling her ‘babe’ and ‘hot’ from a man, 48, who has phoned her ‘every morning and every night’ since the pair exchanged details after a smash.
Chloe Murray, from Perth in Western Australia, ran her car into the back of the unidentified man’s car after she accidentally put her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake over the weekend.
Describing the incident as ‘traumatic’, the law student said she was ‘a mess at the scene, crying my eyes out and apologising’ because his children were in the car and were visibly shaken.
As the pair exchanged details, Ms Murray – whose ex-boyfriend arrived on the scene to help – said the man ‘kept whispering things into my ears that were hell inappropriate’.

‘He kept saying my ex wasn’t good enough for me, he could take me out and treat me better and that we should catch up the next day.’
While she said the man was ‘really nice about everything’ and kept assuring her his children were ok, the situation took a turn when she got home.
‘The night of [the accident] I got home at like 11pm and he would not stop calling me.’
She asked members of a Facebook group for advice and shared a range of messages he sent her in the days following the accident.
‘R u ok,’ he asked.
‘My kids are ok.
‘Ur ex is an idiot.
‘Text me once ur able to ok.
‘We can talk.’

Ms Murray replied and explained she submitted a police report, that her car had been towed and she was ‘just trying to calm down’.
‘Ur ex bf is a d**k cause u look amazing,’ he replied, ignoring her concerns and asking her if she wanted to ‘catch up tomorrow afternoon sometime and talk’.
She explained she had classes the next day and thanked him for his help.

‘Morning how r u feeling today,’ he asked the next day.

‘Damn babe x,’ he replied.
‘Do u want a hug.
‘Ur such a gorgeous pretty girl x.’

Eventually, Ms Murray realised she had to decline his date invitations.
‘You are really lovely and I’m glad you were understanding. I’m still so much in shock. I’d be happy to have a coffee but I’m not in a dating mindset at the moment … Living at my ex’s house isn’t ideal and I’m just trying to get myself back on my feet.’
She then asked for photos of his car boot after the accident for insurance purposes.
He sent the photos and asked, ‘do u think Im ok looking?’

Ms Murray, who had whiplash from the accident, felt at a loss.
‘He has called me every night and every morning sine the accident and he has my address,’ she wrote in the Facebook group.
‘I can’t deal with these texts … It’s affecting my metal health as I already have terrible fear of men from past experiences.
”I’m scared he might react if I reject him … I keep on replying to him because I don’t want him to f**k me over and claim I did something way worse or was on my phone. I feel like I need to appease him but the calls are relentless.’
