Obscene or Harassing Calls
If you receive annoying, obscene, abusive, threatining, or harassing calls, follow these instructions:
- Hang up at the first obscene word. Hang up if the caller remains silent the second time you say hello. Remember you control your telephone, not the person calling.
- Do not give any information, such as your name or address, until the caller has been properly identified.
- Call Campus Safety at x8888 immediately and report the incident. They will refer the matter to the proper authorities for investigation.
