Call tracing help

Postby nsulham » Sun Jul 24, 2005 6:46 pm

This is the 2nd time in two days that some girl has called me and pretty much pranked me and it's starting to tick me off. The number comes up "Withheld" so I can't redial or anything.

Tried *69 but that didn't work. Any ideas?

I usually try *69, but since that didn't work try acting like her calls don't bother you.....she'll get bored and stop pranking hopefully.

Just don't answer the phone when it says Withheld. She'll get bored and give up.

To add on.. I'd say go along with whatever she's saying. For instance, once a guy called me up saying his name was Brian and that we met at a gay bar. I said, "Oh yeah, I remember you... You like my butterfly kisses?" And he stopped dead in his tracks. ;D

you would think so but most of the time, at least in my experience, they wont give out that info if the number is listed as withheld, restricted, etc. i asked verizon if they would do that if i filed a police report and maybe they lied just to get me off the phone but they said they couldnt even do that.

Two choices.

#1. Block where the call is coming from.

or

#2. Go with the prank and win the prank war.

Either way will take care of your issue, just a matter of how much time and imagination you have. ;-D
