3am this morning i got an phone call on my landline. It went like this:

Me: "Hello...(barely awake)."
Man: "HELLLLP! He's raping me, HEEELLLLLLLLLP!!!
Me: "(still waking up) Hey what, whats going on?!" Who is this?"
Man: "(screaming) He's stabbing me!!!!! Stop raping me!!!"
Me: "(screaming now as well!) Who is this? Where are you? Are you in the house? (still dont think i was fully awake  huh.gif Talking to hubby - call 000 now!! Check the kids!! )
Man: "Are you there?"
Me: "Yes who are you? Whats happening? How did you get my number?"
Man: "He's stabbing me!"
Me: "WHERE THE **** ARE YOU?!"
Man: "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Dont go and kill yoursef now will ya!"
He hung up.

Thanks alot you frigging idiot. You woke up an entire household with that joke. Not only that you scared us to death. I can only assume that was in relation to the hoax/prank call news happening??

That's awful OP.  I'm sorry you got such a fright.
I think you should contact your local police station to report it & ask them to try to trace the call - in case it happens again, and also in case this person is in a habit of doing this to people. He may well be committing telecommunications offences.

Was it a blocked number or did it show up? I'm assuming it would have been blocked but maybe you phone company can trace it


Not everyone has caller ID on their landline, we sure don't. I don't believe the phone company can trace a call after the event either.

I would definitely report it to the Police though.

I'd most definitely be reporting that to the police. I think Telecommunications do keep records of who called you. Just not what was in the call. They will be able to trace it to a number.

What a horrible person OP. I hope he gets caught.

What a tool, you could of done without that.
You said it was a man, so not a kid mucking around. How weird!

I would call telstra and get a trace put on your phone today in case the idiot rings back. Then the police can prosecute and telstra can terminate their telecommunications.

There is no way of tracing this call unfortunately.

Yes they can. They need to know the time the call was made and the number that was called.

Jodie, I hope the police are able to trace the call.

No they can't. There has to be a trace on the phone for what you have suggested above to work. They have no way to trace such calls otherwise - that's why traces exist!. It isn't possible.

Is it too late to try redial? You can get the number that way.

#19 MaggieL79

Actually Songbird they can. I once had repeated lewd calls and the police traced and charged the man. Report it definitely, there is no excuse for that.

They can work out who called you. I received a threatening phone call once and contacted the police (I suspected that it was my ex who I had a restraining order out against) and Optus were able to provide the police with the number. Turns out it was my ex's friend.

Well telstra have told me several times that they can't.

#22 JRA

Posted 10 December 2012 - 06:36 PM

I would be reporting it to the police.

My guess is that they have done it to many people and they need the reports.

I cannot even explain what I think of someone doing that.

When police are involved it's a different situation. They do have the records, I would assume that it would be some type of policy though that they cannot disclose numbers to customers.

Only in the movies maybe.

All telco's are required to keep records for a minimum of a week.

Telstra would've provided information to the relevant authorities when the appropriate paperwork is submitted. They do not supply this information to civilians, which maybe why they told you that.
