How do I stop harassing fax calls?
September 1, 2005 6:50 AM Subscribe
I just moved and got a new phone number that I'd rather not change. Twice every night at 4am, the phone rings and there's a fax machine on the other end. The caller ID shows "Unknown name, Unknown number." Besides leaving the phone off the hook or hooking up a fax machine (that I don't have), what can I do to stop these calls?

Let me also add that the phone company says there's nothing they can do but allow me to pay $5/month for a service that blocks calls labeled "Unknown number," but I'll be damned if I'm paying money to stop this harassment. I'm afraid that hooking up a fax machine will only encourage the calls and won't reveal anything to me, but I'm starting to think it's worth the risk.
