Eliminating All of Your Prank Calls

Sep 4, 2008
We have all been on the receiving end of a prank call at some time in our lives, whether it's a call to your mobile, home phone or office phone. There are pranksters that may just perform a one off prank call, which is acceptable to handle. But what about the people that are doing it day in and day out, it does start to get slightly overwhelming and you just want to throttle them. The worst it can get is at night times, especially if you are on call as a doctor or nurse, you leave your phone switched on so that you do not miss any important calls and then a prankster that just hangs up on you wake's you up.

So you've have decide that you have finally had enough and you want to eliminate these prank calls for good. From here in, there are two main options you can take. First and foremost there is the option of hiring a private investigator; this may cost you quite a bit of money in the long run. So you should firstly decide to yourself if it is fully worth the hassle? A private investigator will be able to promptly get to the bottom of things and will give you the evidence so that you can report the abuser to the police.

Alternatively your second choice will be to use a reverse phone number search service. You can get a free version or a paid version. The way in which this service works is that it identifies a caller from a landline but only if there number is unlisted, therefore it will not in any circumstances work for mobile phones or VoIP phones. This is somewhat of problem as most pranksters to tend to call from unregistered mobiles. But this being said if you do sign up for a paid version of the reverse search than you will have access to most of the entire mobile and VoIP numbers. It usually costs a minimal fee to sign up.

Once you have received all of the information of the prank caller, you will then be able to succeed in eliminating the calls. This again can be done in two ways, the first is a more kind approach whereas the next time the prankster calls you, you should address them with all there information. This will definitely give them a scare, if this technique does not work you can then pass all of your information over to the local authorities who will be more than delighted to help you.
