A: # Hang up, without delay, on any obscene, harassing or threatening telephone calls. # If such calls occur more than once, notify the telephone company (they can attach a device to your circuit that automatically traces all your calls-all you have to do is write down the exact time the call came in and they can tell you who made the call); you must be willing, however, to prosecute the guilty party. # If any threats are made to you via the telephone, notify police # Use an unlisted telephone number (or have your number changed) if the calls continue or do this to prevent any such calls. # Single women: do not list your first and middle name in the telephone directory; use initials only: e.g.: instead of Mary Ann Smith, it should be M.A. Smith This prevents an obscene caller from knowing you are a female. # When answering the telephone, never indicate if you are alone or when you will be coming or leaving to any stranger. # Report too many "wrong numbers" to the police; it could be a burglar wanting to find out-through the unanswered telephone - when you are not home. # If you know who the harassing caller is, file a complaint against the person with the local district justice.
