Strange, and at times even obscene phone calls at night time was extremely common a few decades ago, but as increasing numbers of people began shifting from normal land line phones to mobile devices, many figured that the problem would fade away into obscurity. Unfortunately however, that has pretty much never been the case. The fact is, the problem is considerably worse than it’s ever been.
There are generally two types of prank calls. The first type might be annoying, but the calls are mostly made in a light hearted manner, and in many cases, you may even find yourself having a good giggle, along with the person that is contacting you. Such prank calls tend to be received at a reasonable time, and once you have been phoned, it’s very unlikely that you’ll receive anymore calls from the same caller.
For the most part, such calls aren’t obnoxious or obscene. The callers merely dial random numbers, and they almost never dial the same number twice. However, the next type of prank call can be quite unsettling, particularly for single females as well as the elderly. These types of calls are typically obscene or maybe intimidating. Nonetheless, it’s also worthwhile keeping in mind that even these particular calls rarely persist if you do not give the caller a good reason to keep on phoning you.
The golden rule to remember if you begin receiving these calls is that you must just cut the call right away. In most cases, if the caller is not effective at getting a response from you, they’ll just move on. Even so, sometimes the particular tactic doesn’t work, and if the calls persist, it can become rather worrisome.
