There has been a lot about this on the news around here. seems that the people doing this are really sounding on the phone as if they really are management. So the ones they are calling are listenning to them and doing what they are told.

I hope that the police are able to find out who is doing this and get them in jail soon. Or someone innocent may just end up getting hurt.

They can't trace these calls back?

Maybe the police can track them through the internet. The news report said the people were posting the calls.

At some point, law enforcement will make an arrest and get a conviction. The idiots who are unlucky enought to be the initial convictons and who have considered what what they're doing as nothing more than a humorous prank, will then find out what it's like to become the quintessential "example." Then you're going to hear some true real life wailing!

How awful. Someone is going to be seriously hurt or worse. I hope they are caught soon.

Saw this on the news and was dumbfounded. People really don't have anything better to do with their lives - I remember the couple times as a kid a friend and I made prank phone calls - it was because we were bored, and had nothing to do...and we were like 10. As an adult I can't imagine being able to do it, as a kid I only made like two, as I felt so guilty. Speaks a lot as to why we have some of the problems we do today.

I work for a natural gas company and I can honestly say that I can believe people would do that. Any manager in there right mind would not ask a guest to do that.
