~Cornell: Hiya! Longtimenosee. Your idea, very good one. I sorta remember that happening to me once --new to logging-on to Internet, pages of random numbers, and once from a virus. But only two things unpacked, the landline phone instrument and the puter. The puter wasn't even plugged in when I learned what happened.
Your idea such a good one: I will keep it for reference and I am sure it will help others, who find this thread in *search* --Thanks for reply.
~Rain: You feel 'sandbagged' by what I wrote? Come on over, stand in my shoes: One day I went to throw out the trash --my car --GONE (from parking space) --30 minutes before city inspectors were arriving. "People"? I confronted the person I suspected, demanded to know WHY he towed my car.
"I didn't tow your car, the tow company took it."
Then: he admitted he called the tow company --to a judge. Judge: ordered him to pay the charges and have my car brought back. Outcome? IGNORED court order. He didn't pay. Lincoln, customized Bill Blass design, less than 46,000 miles: tow company sold my car --for storage fees --for 300 bucks. --Judge --police? Couldn't care less.
"people" --nope, just one Super sicko. So many things stolen from me: runs to four PAGES.
My car acquired 14 flat tires --in 17 months, while it was parked. --Numerous police reports filed; they won't do Thing One: no PROOF who did it. His garage: packed all the way to the roof --with dozens of sets of dishes --all different styles, toys of little children, maternity clothes from 1960s, boxes of men's shirts (NOT his size) -still wrapped from the laundry. --You know of anyone who would care enough to pick up their shirts, then move out and LEAVE them? He's a major thief, seriously sick.
"simple"? Perception Vs. Reality. Using the phone: a FEDERAL crime. Think he cares? It's considered a form of Identity Theft. Police, FBI? --They can't be bothered. FBI: refused to even take a report.
I get the Agatha Christie reference. If I said who I suspect, listed ALL the things he has done THEN asked:
'How to Prove HE used my phone line, How to Stop it' --your answer would have been --different?
~Disembedded: what can I say...
I know WHO used my telephone line --to harass a local stranger. I DON'T know:
how to Prove it
how to Catch him
Stop it --in case it's been set up technically, to repeat
how to Get him arrested
If you do: Please reply. He's a serious mess, been a mess for decades, not going to stop, prison is the only solution.
