People phoning the Aberdeen Performing Arts box office today were met with a four-letter expletive telling them to go away.
Aberdeen Performing Arts has said it was aware of the incident and is investigating.
The automated message telling people to “f*** off” was played to unsuspecting callers phoning the main switchboard.
It has since been changed to tell callers that the box office is now closed.
A spokeswoman for Aberdeen Performing Arts said: “We’re aware of the situation and are investigating.”
