Creepy Phone Call to DD
I posted a while ago about how my DD got a position as a domestic violence and rape crisis advocate in a city about 2.5 hours away. She's been there for about 3 weeks, and was getting settled in nicely.
Saturday morning she had a phone call from a cell number she didn't know. It was a male voice asking her "How is your new apartment in $$$? How is your new job?" over and over in a loud creepy (according to her) voice. The caller would not identify himself. She was half asleep but feels like she did not know the voice. I made her call the police and they explained that with only the one call there wasn't really anything they could do. (they also dialed the number and got no answer).
Later that evening my DH called the number and when the caller answered asked, in his scariest voice, "tell me why the &@$? You are calling my daughter". The caller hung up. DH called back several times but the phone was shut off with no voice mail. Later that evening DH texted the number and asked the caller to identify himself. The person replied, "I am just a secret admirer who heard she was getting a new job and wanted to no how it was going. No harm meant". DH told him to identify himself, apologize and lose the number. There has been no further reply.
In the meantime I had a PI friend run the number and it came up to a company in Cambridge, but we can't find the company listed anywhere. My friend who is in personal security suggested we not contact the person again and just try to find him. I guess the police can only get the address with a subpoena, and really no crime has been committed. We have some feelers out and are hoping we figure something out. I had DD message her close friends to see if the # is familiar or is in their contacts.
Poor DD is nervous. Her apartment is well secured and the landlady's BIL is a police officer in the neighborhood. He stopped by to introduce himself and to give her some tips for staying safe. I'm so grateful as I think that helped her feel better.
I'm also so very angry. She was so happy and excited to be on her own and doing some good and this jerk has unsettled her with one call. I guess it will help make her more cautious, so that is good I guess.
