ORLANDO, Fla. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - When a Florida man bought his first cell phone last month, he was not expecting the calls that soon flooded him.
Junior Guy, 49, of Orlando, was bombared with threatenening text messages and telephone calls. Come to find out, T-Mobile gave Guy the old cell phone number for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman charged with the murder of 17-year-old Tayvon Marton. Zimmerman gave police dispatch that number when he called 911 the night of the shooting.
Guy tells The Orlando Sentinel that since he got the phone May 7, he has received over 70 threats; and he and his mother have had to move.
T-Mobile has since changed Guy's number, and credited his account, he says.
Guy is seeking unspecified damages against T-Mobile.
T-Mobile has a policy of recirculating numbers 60 days after the number has been canceled, the paper reports. Zimmerman's and Guy's old number has been retired.
