"Bin Laden" just called my mobile

41
Found 19th Sep 2007
Well, my mobile rang 20 mins ago *withheld*.

Sounded like a drunk and I couldn't hear clearly, but I was sure he mumbled he was "Bin Laden".

I hung up, but what sounded like the same guy rang again immediately, saying he was Bin Laden and that we're about to be bombed, and I should watch my back.

Thing is, he didn't withhold his number the second time. So I rang it back and it was engaged for 15 mins. Then he answered it. I stayed silent. He hung up. I redialled and stayed silent. I did it again. :evil:

So, anyone else had a menacing call like this? I've googled/lycos'd/ask.com'd the number with no results. It's a Peterborough dialling code 01733 :pirate:

Lol. Just been on the blower. Cambridge/Peterborough police want nothing to do with it. They suggested my local police in Blackpool so I called them too.

I now have an incident log for this "malicious communication".

Thing is, I'm on a secure government site so it might get interesting. And no, I cannot now divulge the number except that it starts with 01733 29**** in case anyone else gets the same "prank" call.

Anything like that, no matter how little needs to be reported :thumbsup:

Is saddam a female?:?

Anyway, you are too late:-

Tell the police you want your complaint escalated to Assault under the case of Ireland 1997 (as of course such a phone call will result in a fear of imminent unlawful violence, much more substantially than the mere silence that constituted assault in Constanza/Ireland).
They'll take it more seriously than mere "malicious communications".

Thames House and GCHQ are monitoring this thread already?

im sorry:giggle: I shouldnt be laughing.

Seriously you have done the right thing reporting it.:thumbsup:

It sounds like a Whittlesey number just outside Peterborough starting with 29**** so no loss if it does go off. They'll be high sixing each other in the town all night. :whistling: :giggle:

oh im pretty sure if the words bin laden and bomb are mentioned in any phonecall, its automatically flagged and investigated, most likely without you even realising it.

I'd be rather scared if this was me. You did the right thing reporting, bud.

Some people are sick.

Someone in Peterborough may be looking for a deal on a new front door after they have an unexpected visit from the police :?

" Paranoia will destroy ya"



It's only paranoia if it's not true !!

I wouldn't worry about it, Just some stupid drunk/drugged prank caller.

If Bin Laden wants to blow people up, there isn't anything you can do about it!, Sit back, relax and next time he calls, get a whistle and blow it down the phone, There is a risk you'll blow his ear drum, but he deserves it, would stop him being a **** anyway!

Probably just to ask a couple of pointless questions like "do you know where he live", "what accent did he have" "did he sound as if he'd been drinking"

All of which the simple answer is "I just picked up the sodden phone, I didn't pay that much attention". :giggle:
