The Secret Service is Calling Me! Help!!

Hi Friends,
Recently someone has been calling me on my cell phone about 3 times a day saying they are the secret service from a private Caller ID. It is someone from my high school. I think they are using a spoof card because the phone number is blocked or the white houses number. It is really starting to piss me off and I need some help. They have called about 7 or 8 times in the last 2 days. Its really annoying. I called sprint to see what they could do but all they said was that I would need to contact local law enforcement to put it to a stop. The worst part is they are not only wasting there own and my own time but they are also working away at my phone bill. So, I need your help. What do you think I should do, contact the local police and get the perpetrator(s) arrested for impersonating a government member or should I try something else such as taking the law into my own hands (phone trap/ back spoofing)
Thanks for all your help.

Joe Rowley

Answer it and reply (your town) police department, whats your emergency? Insist that they called 911.
I did that once, but I was doing the pranking and said that they called me. But I'm pretty sure its a felony to impersonate the police.
Is it a felony to impersonate a dispatcher? They are not usually police.

It might (since I am not a lawyer) depend on intent, also.

thats gotta suck.

i think there a program that you hook your phone up to the computer and the callers number and phone info is stored into your comp.
if not that then theres always "bitpim" its a program and it shows all your history and stuff of calls received and sent, i think it unblocks numbers.

do they engage in conversation?
if so then when they call:
them:"hello, this is the secret service calling(or whatever they say)
you:Really???? whats wrong??? am i in trouble?????

then see what they say. if they say that you are in trouble
you:"for what????" or "why..." or "on what basis?" or "you cant do S*** to me!!!! im un touchable!!!!!!!"

. Do like I do; if I don't recognize the caller/number, I don't answer.

Yeah, but Joe might get money if he sues....

. More trouble than it's worth. Whoever is calling will probably get bored in a few days and stop - sooner, if JJ doesn't answer.

The problem is that some of my parents friends are psychiatrists and they have blocked caller IDs, so i don't know if it is the prank caller or somebody for my parents.
. If they are MDs, they should be smart enough to use the "deactivate CallerID blocking for this call" feature (*80?) of most phone systems. My ex was only a PhD Psy, but she figured it out. . Use Call Return (*69) and harass the harasser. I think this will work with blocked numbers, but not sure. Try it and see. This will probably only encourage the culprit. . Hang tough for a few days, whoever it is will probably give up after a little while.
