In addition to Caller ID, look into Call Trace. You punch in *whatever, call the phone company, file the complaint, and the legal process begins.
Something like that.
Also, look into getting a tape recorder that loops through your phone line and either doesnt go "BOOP" or has a toggle on/off feature.
Dont worry about state laws regarding the recording of phone conversations. Just do it and store it someplace safe (in someone else's custody).
If you turn up dead or injured (worst case scenerio), it may end up being very handy.
Even if the police cant use it as evidence, it sure gives them something to go on.
Also, pay $25.00 or so and get a background check on the alleged person. It would be interesting to see what turns up on it.
Invest afew bills and do some homework (referring to the tape recorder and background check). Check into call trace with the phone company, file a
police report, and go from there.
She likes to use the phone and over time, has obviously become very comfortable with it. Use that against her. If Call Trace can determine who the
recent prankster was and that person has a history of talking to your friend on the phone, the rolling ball will pick up lots of speed.
Curious, financially speaking, are you ahead of her or is she ahead of you? The reason I ask is because if you have her beat in the $$$ department,
you could try to just out-lawyer her if you decide to exercise a civil suit.
At any rate, keep us up to speed on it.
