TikToker Sparks Debate After Asking Verizon To Let Her Check Cheating Boyfriend's Messages

People who are struggling with trust issues in their relationships are seeking ways to keep tabs on the whereabouts of their significant others.

Many of these strategies include the use of apps serving as tracking devices, but one TikToker tried another way to confirm whether or not her partner was being unfaithful.

TikTok user @thearmanim was suspicious about her ex's infidelity and tried requesting records of his message activity from his phone's service provider. But it was to no avail.

She posted a short video sharing her predicament and the result of her attempt at finding answers.

The viral clip sparked a conversation about the ethics of breaching privacy in an attempt to catch a cheater in the digital age.

She knew exactly what I was doing lmao and she was right #cheater #relationshipgoals #relationshipadvice #JBLGreekOut #CustomersMostLoved #foryou

The clip was accompanied by Shemara London's song, "Summer Walker," as the TikToker lip-synced the lyrics, "God help me, oh/I think I'm insane, ah."

As of Monday, the Daily Dot said the clip was viewed more than 740,000 times.

"When I thought my ex was cheating on me I called Verizon and told the lady it was an emergency and I needed a copy of all of his messages," she wrote in the text overlay.

However, the Verizon rep she spoke to suggested a solution that could be more reliable.

The TikToker said she was told:

"And she was like honey I can't do that but if you have a gut feeling you should trust it."

The situation was familiar for this former Verizon employee.

Another who has been in the TikToker's position before tried another method to confirm her suspicions.
