Ok my wife is still really freaked out at the moment so I need all help possible. She recieved a phone call on her cell phone from a twin cites MN number. The person on the other end was re routing what was being typed to her saying it was a re routing service." Is there a such thing as this?" The person on the other end was wanting to talk to my 9 yr old son. When we would not let him get on the person on the other end started threaening to kill my whole family. The wierd part is they know my son's name my stepson's complete name and the friend that my 9 yr old play's with.

The fact that the person know's who my 9 yr old play's with mean's that it is not some prank from one of my 14 yr old step son's friends. I need any and all help researching this . They even new where my vehicle was parked at when asked. Called police but they are of no help right now. can't call the number it just say's call can not be completed.

(edited out phone number - Byrd)

Just wanted to say more that I forgotI am pretty upset. When the person would type out the message the middle person would repeat what was typed and then say go ahead. Then I could speak and then I would have to say go ahead for her to type it then there would be a long pause while she typed and waited for a response. I could here the typing in the back ground.

No they do not have access to a computer for that. The 14 yr old does while at his dad's but he wouldn't talk about my 9 yr old and his friends' and that my Purple jeep was parked right accross the street.

Why can't the police help? They should be taking any death threat seriously. For now I would keep your son close, no school. Take any vacation time you or your wife is owed.
I don't understand why the police can't help. I would keep calling them until you get results.

That phone number is an IP relay service. Lately it has been reported as an AIM relay.

I googled the phone number, and found this article and this one



I walked in the door, and recieved a phone call, from a "relay," service. The lady informed me that this service is designed for people who are deaf/hard of hearing, whereas they use the internet, to type what they want to say, the operator then, "relays," to me, and I have to respond. She noted that I have to speak in "first person," and to say, "go ahead," when I am finished. It was a weird #, a Minn. #, so initially, I thought maybe it was Joe. Does this # look familiar?

612-524-0455???

It says you can do this harassing through MyIMRelay. Yahoo! and/or AIM - which is probably what happened.

Police POLICE police...call them ASAP.
Get this reported.....threats are taken seriously. Cops searching can find information more readily than you can...they can find out who this is coming from, and you can get a restraining order to keep them away from you, and if they break it, they are in MORE trouble than just the making of threats.
They seem to know quite a bit about you, and it COULD just be someone who lives by you who feels some offense of some kind and is lashing out in this weird way........
To many CRAZYS in the world we live in, you have a FAMILY don't take any chances!
COPS! COPS! COPS! call them!!!!!

~NOW~

This sounds like a TTY service...

I quickly looked up this number and it appears to belong to MCI. Call them and demand to know where the TTY Call Center is located for that number. Once you get that, call the company that manages that call center and demand their records on the call. They should have an electronic backup of the TTY call, as well as the inbound number/location of the original call.

Hope that helps.

Looks Like Loam and I hit the same article.

Here is the MCI press release.


MCI (MCIA.PK) today announced it has reached an agreement with America Online ("AOL") to allow deaf, hard of hearing and speech disabled individuals to access MCI's IP-RELAY.com services via AOL, AOL® Instant MessengerTM and Apple Computer iChat services. Deaf, hard of hearing and speech disabled AOL members and AIM users can now establish an instant text conversation with MCI Relay operators to complete calls from computers and mobile devices with Internet access.

The AIM service is available free-of-charge on a variety of Internet-enabled devices. Users will be able to instantly connect to MCI's IP-RELAY.com services anywhere, at any time. To establish a call, AOL members, AIM users and iChat users can simply add the MCI Relay screen name, "My IP Relay," to their Buddy List® feature. When users click on the "My IP Relay" screen name and open a message window, they will be prompted to initiate an IP-RELAY.com call. Users simply type what they want to say into the message window and an operator facilitates the call.


Here is the IP-RELAY.COM website. Perhaps you can direct the police there to gather call logs?


It is a tragedy that such a useful service is abused like this.

I wish i could provide help, but what was said already is all i know.

I Mainly want to comment "AGAIN" on how cops are not there to help and protect you.
They are only there to take a report after all is said and done,and really are almost never really ionterested in actually helping you as much as figuring out how fast they can get rid of you.

frankly I advise you arm your wife with a handgun and teach her how to use it and teach her the will to use it as needed.

If the cops only want to do something the next day, let them deal with a shot criminal not your wife. Also note, a dead attempted murder can not and will not speak out against you in court.

I can't believe that a company would actually follow through with this. I know they are probably trained to stay indifferent and just act as the messenger they are, but seriously wouldn't a normal person realize what they are saying and stop!? or at least report it to the company for investigation.

Why would they stop? The FCC is reimbursing them $1.50 per minute to continue.


Companies who offer the service (IPRelay (MCI), Sprint, and AT&T) aren't working too hard to prevent the abuse or authorize users. Why? As this user notes in our forums, the companies are being paid close to $1.50 per minute by the FCC (and you) for carrying the traffic. Do the exponential math, and most of these companies stand to make millions a year via their "good will".

Over the past year, a high volume of operators in the past year have spoken out about the volume of prank calls and scams they've been forced to process. According to one source quoted by a Baltimore paper earlier this year, nearly 90% of the traffic on IP-Relay networks is scammers using stolen credit cards to anonymously mail-order electronics in bulk.

The result has been an increase in companies refusing calls from IP-Relay services, and busy operators unable to take the calls of users who actually need the service. While the FCC, operators, and the companies are all aware of the problem, so far the companies involved claim they're waiting for the FCC's "leadership" on the issue before they'll act.

Try calling crime stoppers or something and ask what to do. STAY INSIDE WITH a working cell phone. do not leave the house

also you might be able to get a police man to stand infront of your door

I would call the nearest FBI field office. It is open 24/7. Tell the agent on duty what has happened. Terroristic threats are taken seriously.
