State/Country relating to question: North Carolina
Is there a specific question I could assist you with?
How can I stop this person from calling? Also is there someone I can report them to in this state of North Carolina. Have others been bothered by this too?
We've heard similar scams but I don't recognize that name.Contact the FBI at www.fbi.gov. They have jurisdiction over telephone scams.You can also contact whoever provides you with telephone service. Explain what is happening and that you want to block that person. They can also help you with filing harassment charges through the local police but you want to talk to the FBI first because they may want to use you to catch them.If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask but please do so my clicking on the Reply to Expert tab.We work for Positive Ratings, please click on one of the top three ratings or one of the Smile Faces, as this would be appreciated.
