- Never give a caller any reason to think you are home alone
- Do not give your name, phone number or address to a telephone caller
- Hang up on obscene or frightening phone calls. If they persist, blow a whistle loudly into the mouthpiece. Write down the date, time, and what was said and heard in each call.
- If threatening or obscene calls persist, report them to the phone company and block the phone number after making a police report.
