Although Whats App is not a cell C product, my cell C contract is the only place where both my friend and my cell phone numbers are stored together.

In the early hours of this morning I was woken up out of a deep sleep by my cell ringing. Not having my glasses on plus being half asleep, my immediate thought was it was an emergency. I answered my call not realising or even suspecting it to be a video call with pornographic video of a man's penis. I immediately tried to put it off, fumbling in the dark and feeling absolutely violated by the video from an intruder let alone the images. My friend has received porno video calls through out this early morning and today from the same number in Morocco.

My question is how these cell numbers were exposed to someone in Morocco? My second question is, does Cell C sell their contact list to either organisations or companies for marketing purposes as this is without my permission?

I do have proof of the number that contacted us on both our cell phones.
