If you are a victim of harassment, you should contact the police. Report the time, date, nature of the call and how often they occur.  If the police can identify the caller and find sufficient evidence, they will forward the case to the local district attorney’s office to prosecute the caller.

Your phone company might be able to assist by tracking down the caller. Phone companies have different policies on the course of action to take when a customer reports receiving harassing phone calls. You should contact the business office of your phone company to find out its policy.
You could also contact a lawyer to help determine whether the caller’s words or actions are obscene or otherwise unlawful. A lawyer can also tell you if you may be entitled to any civil damages for emotional distress.
If you receive a harassing phone call, do not engage in a conversation with the caller or divulge any personal information. Report it to the local police immediately.
