Question

Prank calls - how to investigate?

I work with 2 individuals that do not care for each other. One I like and the other I want gone. The one I like keeps receiving vulgar prank calls 10 times per day. I am suspicious that the other guy is using an app that is designed to harass this person by prank calling him and recording the call. How can I prove it? I do have access to both of their phone records as they are both using company phones.

Stop. Just don't.

Since they only have a limited number of phones to call you on, just put them into your block list and move on.

If they are using "company phones" just call the company HR department and let them know. Be calm, don't flame to them and then block those numbers.

I use Nomorobo and my phone companies block list.

Unless you are HR...

...it really isn't your concern and you shouldn't get involved, other than to advise the individual getting the calls to report it to HR. They will deal with it - in many if not most jurisdictions this may be illegal.

If you get involved, unless at HR's explicit request, you may compromise any evidence. Be VERY careful!
