HELP! -BB Messenger - I'm Sort of Freaking Out

Please help if you can.  A colleague and I are very worried.

 

We were messaging late last night on a private work matter when suddenly I saw a name of another person from work pop up on the profile bar at the top under her picture.  My colleague was sending me a file through messenger at the time.

 

Neither one of us has that person as a contact and don't even know if they own a BB.  Only connection we can think of is that person was a part of an email that was sent on our company's Lotus Notes email system which we can access on our BBs.

 

Anyone ever see this before and what does it mean when a name is listed there?  I'm now second guessing myself as to if I really saw it.

 

What's worrisome is that our messaging and the file being sent was of a confidential nature related to potential staff reductions and we're not sure if somehow that person saw the chat or worse, got the file that was being sent.

 

Any help would be great.  Really, we're freaking out!

What Messenger or "messaging" app were you and the other using at the time?

We were both on the standard Blackberry Messenger.

Any guidance you could would certainly put our minds at ease.

Thanks!

I really can't explain that.

It's strange.

I agree, this is not possible unless one of you added ur colleague to the conversation. As for your part of not knowing if the colleague had a BB, BB10 gives u the list of people who should be added to ur BBM list, but u still need to approve the request and then add the user to ur conversation.

Re: HELP! -BB Messenger - I'm Sort of Freaking Out

Thanks all for your help!  You're all helping us begin to feel more comfortable that it was some sort of fluke and nothing was sent, but still can't figure out why I would see the name. 

 

Even if she somehow was sending an email while I was looking at our chat I can't believe I'd see the name of the person she was emailing.

 

Again, thanks for all of your comments!
