When London woman Hayley Minn lost her purse on a night out six weeks ago, she never expected to see it again.
So she was surprised and delighted to find it had been mailed to her this week.
However, the 25-year-old’s joy was slightly soured when she found a message inside the package – and boy, she was not exaggerating when she described it as the “creepiest note ever”.
The note, published in UK newspaper The Mirror — where Minn works — starts out innocuously enough.
"Dear Miss Hayley, How are you? Hoping you will be fine and well," it reads.
"I would like to inform you that I found your precious purse (looks like it) by Liverpool street station. Might you dropped it and looking for it."
If the story ended here, it would be just lovely. But oh, no Mr Creepy has more than half a page to go - and it only gets more and more disturbing.
"My whole intentions to go inside your purse was to look for your address or anything which can help me to send this thing to you nothing else but I found some naughty stuff as well — don’t need to feel any embracement (sic) honestly I like those people who take extra care lol."
The "naughty stuff" the anonymous writer is referring to? Condoms, Minn confirmed.
The man — we are only assuming it's a man because the email address he asks her to give confirmation to begins with funny.stud — then requests she let him know if she's received the package.
Listen: You know who it is okay to stalk, according to Jo Abi? Your kids. (Post continues after audio.)
Understandable. But the rest of the letter is essentially a man, who has chosen not to reveal his name, hitting on a complete stranger he has never met.
"Just a piece of advice kindly look after yourself and all your belongings when you go out or allow someone else because you are one of the beautiful person I (sic) ever seen (I am sure in real you are more beautiful as compare to your picture)," he says.
"I wish if I can take you out sometime and spend time but I am sure you will definitely have someone in your life who is taking care of you very well otherwise allow me.
"Have a good weekend. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require anything or if you think I would be able to do anything for you."
And then the letter ends with a line we think can either be interpreted as the well-wishes of someone who lives his life by the philosophy YOLO... or the veiled threat of a stalker.
"Enjoy every single moment of your life and enjoy as much as you can because you never know what is going to happen next :)"
Minn said she hasn't heard of the man, who signed the letter 'Your Secret Friend or Admirer lol', and we understand if she's reluctant to send him that email he requested.
