A few months ago, my mom received a call from a local construction company that ran similar to, "I'm from so-and-so Construction, and we'd like to know when we can come out to look at your house!"
My mom politely told the guy that she isn't the owner of the house, that our family rents, and that she wasn't interested in the unsolicited call. He hung up.
Since it just seemed to be a case of mistaken identity, she didn't bother to commit the company name to memory.
A few days later, she received another call from the same guy, who, after asking for her, proceeded to call her a bitch and several other colorful names before hanging up again.
She hadn't heard anything from him again until today, when he called again, asked for her by name, then said, "A woman's place is dead in the desert."
Since he's calling from a number that her phone can't recognize, she can't report him or even figure out what the hell is going on. When she gets her phone bill, she's going to see if she can trace the number and find out. But that might be weeks.
Mom says she's going to think about filing a police report over the weekend, so we'll see what comes of that. Thanks, everyone, for the concern. I'll update my journal as I find out things.
