Hi there, has anybody had a text like the one I got today:

Hi Graham
This is David Lawrie.
Remember me? The guy that took you to Fort William?
You owe my mum £55.
She phoned, you hung up on her.
I've been at your grans house, spoke to your dad. This is not okay.
You need to start paying this money back even at £10 a week.
You need to reply to this message or we'll be back at your door.

I don’t know a david lawrie, he hasn’t spoken to my dad or been to my grans. I take it this is a scam?

Thanks
