It's 5:18 am. and the phone rings. I wake from a sound sleep and answer it. BEEP....10 seconds...BEEP. It is a computer calling. I hang up in disgust.
Twenty minutes later, it calls back again. My automated voice caller ID tells me, "Call from West Virginia." I answer and hang up again.
REPEAT every day for the last ten days.
The phone company cannot identify the company calling. I cannot call them back to tell them to stop calling. The call block feature only works on local numbers.
I called the annoyance division, and they (computer voice) tell me that calls between certain hours are legal, and I cannot do anything about them.
One helpful operator finally tells me that for a fee ($1.25 per incident) I can trace the call, and after it has been traced successfully three times (with no gurantee of success on any given try), the police can then pursue harassment charges against whatever company they find at fault.
Anybody know a good computer Hacker?
Take care. Stick.
