Creepy Private Number Calls Please Help
So this has all happened over the course of a day. My dad works for a call center, and while at work he got a call on his personal phone from a private number. He stepped out to take the call; all that came through was moaning, like a woman moaning and heavy panting. So he hung up and went back to work. An hour or so later it happened again. He answered, it was the same thing. And again a few hours later, this time he shared it with his boss because he was so perplexed and they found these weird pornographic calls… funny. They laughed. My dad gets scam calls and calls from robots all the time. He’s constantly looking for creative ways to respond to them, but this is something he’s never had happen before. And it seemed like typical spam/troll calling. He didn’t have a good one this time. He did think it could possibly be someone he who knew my mom, she did meth and was kind of crazy. He said something like “leave me alone, Anne, I don’t want to talk to you.” To them eventually and hung up.
Then it happened again, this time it was late in the evening, he was home. We’d were in the living room talking about something, and then he got the call from the private phone number again.
“Here it is you’ve got to hear this.” He answered and said “Hello?”
This time however a woman actually answered. The conversation went essentially as follows:
Woman : Hello [my dad’s name], how are you?
Dad: Who is this?
Woman : It’s Anne. It’s been a while.
We both know she isn’t Anne. The voice isn’t the same, and I know that phones can distort voices, but there is no way she is this person. We both note this.
Woman: Do you want to get together sometime and have some fun?
Dad: No, you’re crazy.
Woman: Why would you say that, that’s mean.
Dad : That’s not mean. You are nuts.
Woman: You’re being so mean.
Woman: [there’s a few moments of silence before she speaks again] I’m sorry about calling you yesterday.
Dad: What? [He was confused since he only started receiving the calls today] Woman: I’m also sorry about *something inaudible* last month.
Dad: [his phone doesn’t have good audio so he didn’t under stand] What was that?
Woman: *repeats herself but it’s still hard to understand*
Woman: *repeats herself AGAIN but he still can’t make it out and honestly neither could I*
Dad: What are you saying?
To be honest I thought it was kind of funny at this point. My dad’s older and kinda hard of hearing and she was trying to convey something to him that he was not getting. (And honestly she was not speaking very clearly)
Woman:[finally sighs] I’m going to go. I’ll see you later.
The last part, I’ll see you later, didn’t sound like something she said by mistake. And it creeped us both out. My dad’s a pretty private guy, so his personal phone number isn’t just given out to anyone, not that there’s no way it couldn’t have been looked up online somehow. We aren’t sure how she got his name. He does work in a call center, and admits it is possible he answered his personal phone the way he does his work phone by accident, but he isn’t sure. I wish I could have understood what she was talking about, about last month. We live in a bad neighborhood and lots of things happen around us that could just be normal for the neighborhood or weird. The phone call really has me creeped out though, and I’m nervous about the “see you later” part. He’s contacted the police, and a report has been filed, but they can’t get the number or do anything until he’s been threatened or called on his work phone. He was told to ignore all future calls from a private number which honestly is what he should have done in the first place. Should I be worried about this? Has anyone ever had anything happen like this before? What can I do if this is something I should worry about?
