Obscene and annoying phone calls
Hang up as soon as you realize the nature of the call. Do not try to find out who
the caller is, even if you think it is a friend playing a joke.
Use your answering machine to screen calls. You can also record an obscene
phone call with the memo feature on some answering machines.
If the calls occur frequently, keep a log of exactly when the call was received and
what both parties said. Describe the type of voice and note any background
Consider changing your phone number and depersonalizing your answering
Consider purchasing a machine that requires an access code before your phone
If the calls continue, contact Public Safety or the Police.
