Harassment over the telephone

>> Monday, March 22, 2010

Hello World!

Did you ever encounter a crazy person over the telephone?

Well it happened to me recently…

It was a night around 23.00… I was working on the PC when my mobile phone started ringing…

When checking the caller ID saw it was an unknown number… I took the call as have a friend who is always phoning from different numbers…

It was a girl…

She said hello and then told me to stop harassing Ash as whenever she calls him, his line is busy and that a girl Sanjana keeps on calling him day and night…

I told her that she has dialed the wrong number and that wasnt Sanjana…

But she was adamant cos it was the number his fiancé gave her…

I told her again that didn’t know any Ash and hang up…

After a few minutes, I received a sms from her… she asked me if I met her fiancé on a chartroom and that she is fed up with him and her life… 0_o

I replied her sms so that she leaves me in peace and repeat again that I don’t know about her fiancé etc ( I even told her that I have a BF)…

But she just believe blindly her fiancé …she couldn’t seem to think that maybe am right and her fiancé just give her a number so that he is relieved of her …

But she won’t understand and keeps asking where I got his number…how I know him….I just feel like @#%$&!!!!

Imagine my state of mind it was nearly midnight ….I wonder if she’s behaving like this with me…what kind of hell her fiancé must be living…

It was quite clear to me that her fiancé was cheating on her…I felt somehow sorry for her but I wanted her to stop harassing me…

I told her that have to wake up early as I have to go to work tomorrow…she told me that she would telephone me tomorrow…

The next day at 07.00am she telephoned me… I didn’t take her call…gosh it was unbelievable to disturb people early like this esp when you are not even closed to them…

She then sent me a sms:

Gudmrng dr. y u was not received my cal.zat mean u r guilty. U knw ash my fiancer wel. N u had cal him every2. Nw am fed up of my life. Have only 1way 4me2suicide zat al. cos u did nt tel me d truth. Ash n u ll responsible 4zat. B4 die I must rite a letter. Put ur number n my fiancer num. n d cos also ok dr only 12 hrs give u 2 reveal d thruth ok.

Have quoted her sms with the spelling mistakes not to mock her but to show what kind of person she is…

I just lost my patience when reading her message…was not only being threatened but was also being given an ultimatum…

I replied her and told her that was going to report her to the police before her suicide and that there was an act in the Mauritian law about damaging people’s image and to tell this to her Ash…

She then told me that she was going to check her fiancé mobile to see if I had really called him…

In the meanwhile was not reassured about her suicidal threat knowing she was somehow a bit crazy… so I contacted my BF and asked him to phone that girl but his credit was over…

So I turned to my sis bf… don’t know what he tell her but the girl hasn’t sms or phone me again…and she even switched off her mobile…

Morale of the story:
  • Don’t know any Ash (why should I steep so low to harass another guy when already have a BF)
  • My name is not even Sanjana
  • Unbelievable that anyone can harass you on the mobile and point out such accusation on you when you are innocent
  • Really afraid now to answer unknown number
  • Should I change my number in case she starts again?
Cheers

Report her number plus keep the message she sent, as proof.

Lol..typical typical mauritian! :P i mean on the whole anyway... I hate those kind of people. I can imagine how you felt...being frustrated that a stranger accuses you without proof. Those situations would have kick the hell out of me especially knowing that she'll suicide because she doesn't believe you. I believe if she contacts you again then maybe you should report her number.

@Chaya have kept all her messages...if she starts again will report her

@Reech believe its just a damn situation you wouldn't dream of facing esp when people are so crazy like that...think mobile companies or the network providers should find a way to provide customers an option like we have on msn i.e the block option...think many subscribers do face unwanted situation

There are mobile phones which have it, like my sis's nokia 1600. She's been through a situation where her friend gave my sis's num to her bf and the guy kept annoying my sis with weird messages... She has an option in contacts and messages called screen numbers. Numbers added to that folder can ring you but you are not alerted about it and the messages are added to that folder without alerting as well. She rarely check the folder.

think gonna change sim...just dont wanna face another similar situation...really irritate you

P.T March 24, 2010 at 8:23 PM  

Oh it's not, sadly, a Mauritian thing. I've heard women from other parts of the world go through similar situations.

To be honest I don't think she really planned on committing suicide. She just said it for you to tell her the truth because she's desperate! LOL And she thinks you're the other girl. Methinks she wasn't getting any response or reaction from her fiance so she started attacking you.

Well that's my opinion.

Keep the text messages as suggested by previous commentators. You never know. You might need 'em.

And watch your back! ;p

lol, give her number to the hotline for "suicide". I forgot the name of the association :P

Reech March 25, 2010 at 9:53 AM  

I guess in some way you are scared that your number becomes public. I've faced this feeling today. A wacko took my number from the list book in Port Louis (Caserne) and has been trying to call me a few times today. I've stopped taking his calls and he stopped calling. Makes me frustrated when I think there's a probability he'll advertise my number in some way. Does that make me a paranoid?? O_o

@P.T I think she is crazy...even I told her have a BF and my sis BF talked with her explaining her the situation, she is still sending me sms calling me Sanjana and accusing me of things .... she even told me (via sms yesterday) she has left him and is migrating don't know where 0_o

Gaia March 25, 2010 at 2:34 PM

Gaia March 25, 2010 at 2:37 PM  

@Reech ya am just afraid now that she can give it to anyone...just irritate me that have to change sim because of someone like her (whom I didnt even know)....na you are paranoid think everyone in the same situation will think the same as us...
