    if this person (he or she) is bring children into this...

    then you take the gloves off and do what ever you feel is necessary. that client or provider should have considered that before he called and spoke to her kid.

    Danger - bad advice amidst the good

    (I'm sure Dawn knows this, but for any other provider reading and wondering...and assuming for the moment that the bad guy is indeed a guy)

    One poster says:
    "Caller ID, and if he persists, I would let that info "slip" into a public forum."

    Another poster says:
    "Post the guys name out there..."

    As a naive provider friend of mine learned to her great distress, this is VERY bad advice. I don't care what a crazy guy does. Kidnap your pet, burn your house down, torture you. If you give out any personal info on this guy you will be villified by the hobbyists. Your name will be mud. Tell Slinky, tell the cops, get a gun and shoot the guy. But no posting of personal info on ANY board, or you will be in deep deep trouble. I can see the point of these hobbyists, there is always the chance of mistaken identify. But man oh man they can be vicious if you let anything slip. With worse ramifications than the original bad guy ever dreamed of causing.

    press *57

    I had the same problem. Answer the call, then disconnect . Press *57 and it traces the call. They wont give you the # but if it happens more then 2 times they send a letter to the harrassing party and if you choose to involve LE it's more than your word against they'res. I blocked my phone for a while but it interferred with my business, since your retired that may be the best solution. Sooner or later they do stop in the meantime just try not to engage then.

    A person that questions a child like that, obviously has something wrong with them and should seek professional help right away. It is incredibly unfair to Dawn and her family.

    To bring it to a head whether it be he or she may end this persons obsessive behaivor.

    I tend to disagree with you Carl that is just from a provider...

    {Note from moderator - I'll assume that was a mistake and that it won't happen again }

    Trying to coerce a little kid!

    Only a low life piece of shit would try something like this. Looks like a little kid with brain power won over a pea brain with lack of any conscious! Dawn call LE like Ozzy says, that will do the trick!

    How many times do I have to say it: this is not a hobby.

    I can certainly have fun and practice at it but this is a business and people play hardball. Ask Dawn if she thinks it's a hobby.

    I agree with the Ishmeister

    Caller ID, and if he persists, I would let that info "slip" into a public forum. Jerk deserves it.

    And if you can pinpoint who it is, then you must have a work or home number. I would use it. He probably won't bother you again after that.

    Or we can get Lemur and MJC on him. Their rapier wit will cut him to shreds.

    Idiots like this, and Janelle's dicking of Phantom, ruins this hobby for everyone.

    Good luck Dawn.

    In this society, we hire people to take care of our problems (those of us who didn't used to wear colors, that is).

    Hire a lawyer. Pay him to make the bimbo go away!

    dawn....

    the use of phone lines to harass or threaten is a federal offense. report this PERSON and don't worry about anything else. they can claim anything in defense...it doesn't matter since they have none for using the phone lines. and if it comes up(your former occupation)...do the jedi mind trick....

    DENY, DENY, DENY!

    it's none of their (LE) business what you or anyone recieving threats over the phone does for a living. trust me on this....they won't even ask.

    yes can i take a message?
    You tell your momma ______ _____ called ok?( name i know)
    ok thank you miss _____!
    mommy that lady called that you are not friendly with any more and wanted to talk to me about you! this is the jist of the conversation maybe a bit more .. you tell me..!

    OR

    You could post her number to this board and we can all call her and give her hell.

    (Just kidding.)

    P.S. I agree with MrNY -- Ishcabible is one of the best handles ever!

    Hi Dawn

    I assume you have a cell phone. Once you've established a new, unlisted home number, perhaps you should try only giving your cell number out to folks here. At least it would limit the family involvement. Whether you do that or not, there is always the legitimate recourse of involving the phone company and/or LE. I have never had to go this route, but I am told it can be very effective. Check your phone book in the front under "harrassment".

    As for fighting fire with fire, I don't see that creating more conflict can help. You seem to be above making harrassing calls, especially to a person's family.

    Good luck.

    Response 2 to Dawn

    Dawn,
    You would think that people should get the idea to leave you alone. And to bother a child-that is totally out of bounds.
