    Just recieved a random phone call from a number with +964 at the start. Looking on Google it shows it's the country code for Iraq.

    Conversation went like this:

    Me: Hello
    Him : HALLO!
    Me: Hello?!
    Him: **** YOU!!! (F-Word)
    Me: What?!?!?!
    Him: **** YOU!!!!!! (F-Word again. getting more aggrivated)
    Me : *Hangs Up*

    Odd, don't you think? Should I ignore or do something about it like phone the police?

    Thanks.

    Ignore it, if it's from a 964 number I doubt the police would be able to do much anyway!

    Maybe they misdialled - does your phone number resemble this one: 00-1-202-456-1111

    I used to make prank calls to the states when I was bored at 4am and couldnt sleep.

    Maybe he wanted to abuse a westerner. is your phone number on the internet?

    you said you were bored at 4am and couldnt sleep. to me that says you /were/ trying to sleep.

    anyhoo. I didnt manage to count any. living in a city it was hard to find any at all. i settled for counting lamb doner's in the kebab street. got up to 4, lost track and decided to go home.

    No my number is not on the internet. To be honest it was a bit scary when I checked on for google the number and 'IRAQ' came up - guess it's just an automated response now. No doubt there's people who do it all over the world, just strange that it came from there.
