      If things get serious, police can help. Best advice I can throw out is (assuming a mobile phone) to block unknown numbers for a while.

      Even if it's a landline I'm assuming the operator could sort that aswell.

      Depends where he's calling from, it it's an internet based number you can't trace it, here the guy has the same problem, but the number is VOIP by Google Voice (Same as skype), so you can't really track that. But call the cops if he threatens your GF

      Now this is an old thread...

      Looks like OP isn't even a member anymore.

      yes, it looks like it lynius. He is also a very well known scammer which is why he won't be coming back here anytime soon.

      if it says unknown, there's no way you can get the number from your handset. what you can do, take note of the time when you got the call, who the caller was, and what transpired. if you like, you can record the call. you can then go to your telephone company and ask for their assistance. if the call becomes harassing. you can file a complaint with the authorities.

      and if ever the anonymous caller calls again with a phone number next time, look it up at http://www.callercenter.com. it's a consumer protection site where most people report scam complaints. if lucky, the phone number might have been reported already. if not, then file a complaint. warn everyone else.

      Why does this thread keep getting bumped? What's so special that people can't read the posts following OPs?

      Probably people wanting staked needing to get 300 posts quickly.
