How much do they really know about you?


I got called by one a couple of days ago and I told him I knew what he was up to.


I called him a nasty little criminal and a few other names, but I wasn't vulgar, nor did I swear.


His response was that he knew where I lived and he was going to rape me.


I hung up but he rang back twice more, I let it go to answer phone.


The number on my caller-ID is 023597628.


Should I be worried?

Life is too short to remove USB safely.

It was the fact he was able to ring me back twice that got me wondering about my safety.






He rang you the first time though right?




So he has your number, so they can call as often as they want unless you get that number blocked.

Must say, having ditched the land line many years ago, we've not missed it at all.


On a much lesser annoyance scale, we don't get rung by the local newspaper wanting to sign us up every other week also.

Best solution to this is not to have a landline and screen ALL calls, if I don't know the number I don't answer. If its important they will leave a message.
