    I'm getting a wierdo on my phone

    11/19 10:52 AM

    11/22 03:20 AM

    11/22 03:24 AM


    I would be pissed if I wasn't up until 5:30 AM anyway, but this guys is still being creepy. He sounds stoned/drunk. The area code is for my town.

    I wonder, I'm thinking it's between -

    A: I know this guy and he's going to kill himself and making phone calls before doing it.

    B: Some prick who knows me and wants to piss me off

    C: Some looney who is stalking me

    D: Some drunk/stoned guy who has no idea what's going on

    Which all adds up to RJ's on gaurd mode. This mainly involves being even paranoid.

    The sum of his quotes

    "This is Mike"

    "I'm doing election...... thing"

    "Billy Bob? Is this Billy Bob?"

    "*long stretches of silence*"

    So anyway, if anyone feels adventurous, have a call and try and find out who it is at various times during the day...... for the next month.

    I'd like to know who he is so I can.... talk this out with him.

    Yup, unlisted/private number. Here's something that may help you.



    How to find source of Secretive Phone Calls

    Continuous, Secretive, Obscene or harassing phone calls can be very scary and stressful. Even if calls are not threatening they can be of great inconvenience. However there are various options available to you to put an end to these calls. In most cases, simply uncloaking the individual is enough to bring your problems to swift and successful resolutions.

    What type of phone calls are generally considered to be harassing?

    When someone calls and uses obscene or threatening language.
    When someone calls repeatedly and hangs up.
    When someone calls and breathes heavy or remains silent to intimidate you.

    How often do I have to get these calls to consider it as harassment?

    Generally any unwelcome call is harassing however your telephone company or law enforcement will not take any action unless calls are frequent. If caller threatens you with specific threats of bodily harm to yourself or your family then the phone company or law enforcement will take prompt action.

    What options do I have when I get harassing calls?

    The first thing to do is to call your phone company. Different phone companies have different policies on whether you should call the phone company or the police first. Some phone companies may ask you to call the phone company's local office and explain the problem. Other phone companies may require that you to file a formal complaint with local police before they will deal with the matter. You should contact your local phone company and find out what their policy is in matters of harassing calls. If the threats are serious and your life or property is threatened or if the obscene phone calls are very frequent then you should call your local police immediately and file a report and provide all details and information. You should also note down dates and times of calls and if the caller sounded male or female and describe his/her voice. If caller said anything or if there was any background noise then note down what the caller said and other details on the background noise. If any phone number was displayed on your caller ID you should note that down too.

    What does it mean when sometimes my phone rings and there is no one on the line?

    Often when you receive frequent hang ups on your phone line it could be that someone is checking to see if you are home or its simply harassment. It could also be calls from telemarketers who use computers for "predictive dialing" to call consumers where the computer dials many phone numbers in a short period of time. When anyone answers, the computer finds a sales representative who is not occupied at that time and connects the call. If all sales reps are busy then consumer may hear only silence. These type of calls are called "abandoned calls." If you are receiving many abandoned calls in a day, you can call the annoyance department of your local phone company. If these repeated calls are from a malicious individual who is harassing you rather than a telemarketer, the phone company will generally report the number to law enforcement.

    What options do I have to stop other kinds of unwanted calls?

    To avoid unwanted calls you can use many services offered by your phone company. Call Screen (*60): Your phone can be programmed to reject calls from selected numbers with a service called Call Screen (Phone companies might use different names). Instead of ringing on your line, these calls are routed to a recording that tells the caller you will not take the call. With Call Screen, you can also program your telephone to reject calls from the number of last person who called. This allows you to block calls even if you do not know the phone number. Most phone companies charge a monthly fee for this service. However Call Screen is not a foolproof way to stop unwelcome calls. A determined caller can move to a different phone number to bypass the block. Also, Call Screen does not work on long distance calls from outside your service area. You can also use Priority Ringing: You can assign a special ring to calls from up to 10 numbers – calls you are most likely to want to answer. The rest can be routed to voice mail. There are ways callers can get around Priority Ringing when it is used as a screening tool. Harasser can switch phone lines and avoid the distinctive ring. You can try Call Return (*69): This service allows you to call back the number of last person who called, even if you are unable to answer the phone. Some people suggest that Call Return can be used to stop harassing callers by allowing you to call the harasser back without knowing their phone number. Use caution with this method of discouraging harassing callers, however, as it could actually aggravate the problem. This service is paid on a per-use basis. You can use Caller ID to identify the caller if they are not blocking their number or use a service offered by most phone companies called Privacy Manager. It works with Caller ID to identify incoming calls that have no telephone numbers. Calls identified as "anonymous," unavailable," out of area" or "private" must identify themselves in order to complete the call. Before your phone rings, a recorded message instructs the caller to unblock the call, enter a code number (like inbound call blocking devices mentioned above), or record their name. When your phone rings, you can choose to accept or reject the call, send it to voice mail, or send a special message to telemarketers instructing them to put you on their "do not call" list.

    I got a voicemail, and left a message from James Haselwood, with Lewis and Clark lenders about his delinquent account.

    Thanks!

    I hope he doesn't turn out to be someone important.

    If I don't show up here for three days straight, assume I died in a gunfight.
