What do you do about crank calls?

I ACTUALLY had a heavy breather tonight. Can you believe it? And they called like FIVE times--even after I TOLD them I had their phone number (it came up on my caller ID). I finally left the phone off the hook and they LEFT ME A HEAVY BREATHING MESSAGE! Can you believe it? I thought it was a kid, and so did my mom (she answered one of the calls.) They finally gave up. Tell us your favorite crank call story.

Ha...Ha.....got up at last....nice day.......! usually, if i get a crank call i will get most irritated.....sometimes, i even fire them for calling me without knowing who i am and sometimes if i am free and i get a crank call, i ask about the person who called me and later start making fun of him...lolz.....life goes on....but, for girls it is tough i know.... just coz, the one who called, on hearing girls voice may not drop that call that easily i guess......

Got up at last? You? You know it is 12:45 am here. Is it not afternoon there? You fire them? What does this mean? Yell at them? I thought of saying I was writing the number down for the police, but I didn't go that far. Just let them know I had their number. Doy!

I was getting heaps from my ex at one stage on my mobile phone. I used to just put the phone down next to the tv and leave it, it was his own money he was wasting! If you know the phone number, you should also be able to get your phone company to block them from calling you.

That's funny. (well, sort of) But good for you on making HIM pay. I looked into having the number blocked and apparently it's a service I have to activate for a fee! They also had call tracing, but they have to get the call 3 times to trace it to find the number. Duhhhh, I HAVE the number. Oh well, hopefully it's over.

Oh my, that's hilarious. I'm not sure I'd have the guts to pull that one.

That's a creepy one! I liked doing it when I was younger. I think it's a kid thing. I like the ones they do on this radio station: B96. They can be funny!

Yeah, I thought it was a kid. That was my hope, at least.

Wow, I have not had a prank call in a really long time. If the number comes up on caller ID call it back.

I decided not to, because I didn't really want to get in the mix. I left the phone off the hook for a while and it stopped.

I wouldn't think that anyone would be bold enough to make a prank call with all this technology available to get them caught. If I ever got a prank call I would call the phone company and see if they could just block the number so I could have some peace. If it continued I would go to the police and get them for harrasement. It isn't like the phone calls are all that threatening but you don't know what someone might psyche themselves into doing these days and better safe than sorry.

Apparently, I needed to have registered for the service to block a call and it costs like $7 or something. Luckily, it seems to have stopped. I couldn't believe they kept calling me when I said, "Uhhh...I have your phone number!" Doy.

Dang, that is pitiful. I think people that do things like that need a decent hobby. Once when I went on vacation I came back and this chick from a NEW YORK area code left a message on my machine..."You must die b****." WTF?

Oh dear, I would not like that at all! Yikes. Maybe that was a wrong number?

since i do like to make prank calls, when someone prank calls me, i get on the game and make fun of them. one day, someone called my house and asked if it was from a hospice, so i said: why, you'd like to get some treatment? and the kid hang up on me. lol
