Did you get a prank caller calling you?

You run a legitimate business. Your cell phone is on 24/7 so that we can answer business calls in case of emergency. What happens when your business line gets called by a prank caller in the middle of the night? You may answer because you think it is an emergency, but guess what, your night has been completely wasted because they have decided to be amused by calling you, over and over again, even though you are hanging up on them each time you call.

You may actually even know the number that is calling. So you might think, all I need to do is block this number and I am fine. The phone company is actually not on your side. In order to block a specific number from being able to call you, you either need to add an additional service to your contract costing you more money.

Now its time to fight back!

Prank Caller is dedicated to those who do want to get prank called and want to stop others from prank calling again.

What the prank caller does not know

  • Even though they may have blocked their number from being visible on the caller ID, many phone companies offer detailed phone records over the Internet. While they may think they are calling with a blocked number, their number may in fact be visible and obtainable.
  • If they have left you a voice mail message, you have some powerful leverage against them. Do not delete that voicemail. It could be extremely powerful down the road if you ever needed to call on professional services to help stop the prank caller.
  • You do not have to respond to their antagonizing questions or comments. Quickly hanging up is usually the number one solution to halting the prank caller. If you do not answer them, they are not going to have any fun. That's all they really want.
  • In the United States, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 makes some prank calls a felony with penalties of up to two years in prison, and possible fines (depending on severity). However, such penalties are rarely carried out.

If you want to take the power of the Internet into your hands, there is one simple thing to do. Submit a complaint right here to prank caller.

The idea is simple to understand. Just like when you receive an unwanted email in your inbox and you have been given the power to mark the email as spam, prank caller allows you to mark a caller's phone number as spam. With enough legitimate complaints, we can only hope that prank calls will soon become a thing of the past.

We have high hopes that one day we will be offering a service similar to spam prevention services that allows phone companies to tap into our database of phone IDs. We would hope that we could either send a signal to the phone call receiver that the phone number has been flagged as a prank caller in the past.

Ultimately, people do not realize how much power they have when being the victim of prank calls. Do not site idly by as the prank caller gets away with wasting your time and others. Make something happen right now!
