@mrshunnybunches:  I’m pretty sure it is illegal, criminal itent. They can trace the caller too by the phone number. Definitely report it, I’m sure it was a stupid prank but someone needs to learn their lesson from it!

Yes. At the very least it will establish that this person has a history of behavior like this if he ever escalates with someone else.

@Omgbunnies:  Yes I want to hear how this goes, because I’ve had the occasional crank call, nothing as serious as this though. In my country I’m sure it’s illegal, not sure about USA.

Yup, same as PP… do not delete voicemail, file police report, possibly change your number. And the post here because I’m way curious about this. ;P

If it is a cell phone, you can block numbers. Go onto the cell company’s website and enter the number. You’ll never hear from them again. (If you aren’t sure how, do a search for how to block it or PM me your provider and I’ll get that info to you.)

That would totally freak me out and I’d definitely report it!

How strange, I’m definitely curious to see how your report goes.  It doesn’t meet our requirements for criminal uttering threats, so we likely wouldn’t even be able to get a warrant to get subscriber info here, but I’m always interested to see how other countries handle stuff!
