STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This has been happening for years. Years ago, I noticed a news story about somebody wanting to buy or sell drugs and sending a text message to a cop by mistake. It's happened multiple times. We've mentioned it on the air, and people keep doing it.

It's MORNING EDITION.
