    Being harassed by Illinois Dept of Corrections

    Yesterday afternoon we started receiving hourly calls from the Illinois Dept of Corrections on my 11 year-old daughter's phone. It started innocent enough: They say they have an emergency call for some person whose name is not important, we tell them it's the wrong number and they say thanks and goodbye. Then they call again in one hour, same drill. The called once an hour ALL NIGHT, yes through the night, last night. When the phone rang at 12am I shut it off for the night. Turned it on this morning and we had hourly voicemails from them: "Hello, this is the Illinois Department of Corrections calling with an urgent message for (insert name here). Please call us back at 1-800 blah blah blah."

    We've called them back and told them it's the wrong number. We've answered and told them it's the wrong number and they assure us the calls will stop. They call again the next hour. We ask to speak to a supervisor. "I'm sorry, that's not possible."

    WTF is this man?

    Did your daughter recently snitch on anyone?

    That stinks... Leave it my old college roommate to find ANOTHER crappy thing ....

    Block the number. If it continues, file a police report for harassment.

    I would go online and find a non-800 number for the IDOC, and call there to get it stopped. Doubt it's them calling, tho.

    check the number on whitepages.com and see if it comes up as suspected spam activity. Like KCClone said, I'd doubt it's actually them calling.

    Seriously, man. This crap would happen to no one else. And I should tell you the experience I had with an Amazon marketplace buyer yesterday that's even weirder. But I won't.

    It's coming through as a blocked call. Shoot, she doesn't used it as a phone really, just to play games and crap. If it doesn't stop today I'll just log on to my account online and request a new phone number.

    If it's an Android phone you can block unknown calls from going through.
