Several Hurricane Irma victims called a 1-800 number for help and were offered phone sex instead of hurricane relief assistance.

The Miami Herald reported that the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Region 4 office accidentally tweeted the number Wednesday, which offered assistance to people dealing with damaged roofs.

The number was supposed to be a “1-888” number, not a “1-800” number.

“Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press ‘1’ to connect, free, now,” said the recording of the 1-800 number.

The original tweet has since been deleted and reposted with the right number.

Irma was an extremely powerful and catastrophic Cape Verde-type hurricane, the strongest observed in the Atlantic since Wilma in 2005 in terms of maximum sustained winds.
