Does anyone know how to block a caller with a blocked number from calling your cell phone?
Background on my situation:
About a month or so ago, I put a post on Craigslist to sell some of my bridal items that I no longer needed - tiara, shoes, etc. One of those items was an unopened package of pantihose. I never knew my post was going to attract creeps.
One day I was driving DH's car with my mom and Selin and a call came through my Bluetooth. The number usually shows on the radio but this time it didn't. I thought maybe something was wrong with the display and I couldn't reach my phone to see who it was so I answered the call - big mistake. Now mind you the call is being aired through my radio so my mom heard the whole thing. First red flag - the caller was male. It started off normal - he inquired if the items were still for sale and then started to ask specifically about the pantihose. I couldn't remember off-hand what size they were so I told him if he emailed me his number then I would call him when I got home. He said his internet wasn't working and he would call me later. Then it got creepy. He asked if I had any underwear for sale (!!!) I promptly replied no and ended the call.
As soon as I got to my parents' house, I removed my ad from Craigslist but apparently this guy saved my number because he has been calling me non-stop. He calls at least once/week, sometimes every other week if I'm lucky. He calls from blocked number and never leaves a message. I never answer the phone. I thought he would get tired of always being sent to voicemail but apparently not.
I called my cell phone provider and they said there is nothing they can do without the actual number he is calling from. I did a search online and there is a product called TrapCall that you can install on your phone and it unmasks the blocked number in a round-about way. I don't really want to mess with installing it on my phone but I also want this guy to stop calling me. He just called me 3 times in a row this afternoon. A few weeks ago I changed my voicemail so that it no longer had my voice and just uses the default greeting of my phone number.
Has anyone had to deal with this before?
