Just got a call on my cell phone form what appeared to be a 718 number I did not know. When I picked up it was a male voice ranting about my calling his girlfriend in the middle of the night, and how he was going t f*cking kill me, and suchlike. BUT, and here's the crazy bit, it was actually just a recording having a one-sided conversation to try and sound like it was responding what it was saying. (i.e. crazy line, pause, crazy line that appears to be in reply to my most likely response, et al).
I shut up and just let it go, and it continued for 10-15 more seconds and then disconnected. I called the number back and got a there-is-no-such-number recording from AT&T. Looked the number up online (whocalledme and various reverse lookup sites) and got nothing, so I'm 99% sure it was just a random spoofed number.
S really, my question is, is there anything that I can or should be doing about this? It just weirded me out...
