Do you get unwanted phone calls? Does someone call you in the middle of the night only to let you hear their breathing? No matter what the reason for these calls is, you can now record phone calls to ensure that you are protecting yourself from any unwanted and unnecessary experience. Even if the phone calls just might be from someone from the other side of the world who is calling to sell you something if it happens frequently then it certainly is harassment. Are you aware that there is a law in different countries of the world where is it against the law to make threatening or obscene calls?
Harassing phone calls include:
- When someone calls you and used threatening or obscene language
- When someone makes very heavy breathing or even silence to threaten you
It is stated that an unwelcoming call is also considered as harassment. Unluckily, your local phone company will not be able to take any actions against it unless you can provide to them that there is more than one call. Even though they will take immediate action in case there is either a threatening call made against you or your family with the intent to harm you physically. When you record phone calls, it becomes a lot easier for you to prove that someone actually is making these threatening calls to you. Different companies have different policies on how to deal with these harassing phone calls. They perhaps take immediate action or they might require you to first contact the police. To find out your local phone’s service policy regarding this, you must call your local company’s business office.
Inquire the police if you record phone calls will it work as a viable proof for them. You know even if you are not receiving threatening or harassing phone calls, it is still a great idea to inquire. As they say forewarned is forearmed. However, if you are scared because of the seriousness of the obscene or threatening calls, do not at all hesitate to go to your nearest law enforcement agency. Provide them with as much information as you can in this regard. If you have recorded phone calls, then you can always present them as a proof. The recording you provide will ensure your privacy and perhaps even be able to save your life.
