My number is on the do not call registry. Sending me prank calls should be illegal and the initiating party should be billed for my cell phone minutes. The company and the person who initiated it should be fined.
I am a supervisor at my place of employment and have had some personnel issues that are due to harassment. Two of the employees involved obviously do not care for each other. One received a prank call from the other which could be viewed as further harassment. After doing some research I found the Prankdial.com website, sent the one that received the call the exact same prank call they received from the other employees phone number. I also experimented with another persons number to see how much information we could figure out.
*69 just said the call could not be completed as dialed, but clicking on recent phone calls and the actual call would actually call the real person back. Not only that, in showed up on the AT&T statement as the caller. If I had not done any research I would have assumed the other person guilty and terminated their employment. After figuring this out I would definitely suggest to this employee that he sue prankdial.com. A joke is one thing, but causing someone to lose their job and affect their life is a disgrace. Especially right before Christmas.

I'd like to know if anyone has started a class action suit or contacted an attorney about this site. A person who stalked me appears to have used this company to harass me. The first call was believable, and the voice-reactive "prankster" said they had my dog and intended to harm or kill it! Then, he threatened me. I see many reviewers wanting to take legal action. If you've done so, please give attorney contact info.
Received two calls yesterday from what appeared to be calls from my son. (Somehow it accessed my address book) At first I thought someone stole his phone. One of the calls was accusing me of an affair. The other was accusing me of credit card fraud. I have severe anxiety and these calls caused me to physically shake and my heart to race. When I found out it was a prank I was livid. This is the most horrible app to ever exist. I want to find out who owns this app and pursue legal action.
Received this call today from Cherokee Texas... Man demanded to know who I was and I had hit his car and left my number to contact me. All voice prompted... Wanted my insurance and told me to the effect that he was not messing around. Other things said that I felt were threatening and hostile... At the end said I was pranked or something. I didn't find it funny at all and the way the world is with robot calls. It just irritated me.
I received a call that my caller ID identified as my office. When I answered it was this crank call. I work in a sensitive industry and at the time of night I received this call. I thought it was an emergency. I don't mind someone trying to call and prank me but to mask the call with my office number seems illegal at worst and negligent at best. I am reporting to the State AG.
I received the "you hit my car and left a note" prank. In the call, I was called a "B", and when I repeatedly and quietly insisted I didn't have a car, the person making the call said they were "going to come over there and get" me. Under NY law, which is a "one-party consent" state, just answering the call gave this company legal consent to publish this call. After the call, I got a panic attack and chest pain. I'm an elderly, physically disabled person with PTSD that I got after horrific abuse. This call terrified me.
I complained to my local police, to Facebook, and to PrankDial. The email PrankDial sent me back started off apologetic for the obscene and threatening phone call, and had they left it at that, I would have dropped it. However, they ended the email by saying that they drew their inspiration from Trump, basically saying that Trump had made vulgarity and harassment acceptable.
I asked the person writing the email how they would feel if their physically disabled elderly family member with PTSD got a call where a person threatened to come to their home and "get" them. The "support person" wrote back that I must have been pranked by a friend who had paid for the privilege of terrorizing me, and that they must have been doing so to tickle my obviously non-existent funny bone, and that I should be flattered to be threatened with physical harm. If there's a lawyer reading this who wants to start a class action suit against this company, count me in as one of the members of the suit. These people are making money off frightening people. PrankDial is a disgusting and morally bankrupt company.
It was my first phone call from prank calls.com and it came from a friend whom I would have least expected this kind of behavior. The call was not vulgar so I talked to the man. Haha. Recording trying to calm him down and tell him, "Everything will work out. You just have a wrong number" but, he was persistent so I was forced to tell him that I would let the law handle this and then to my surprise "Haha. You've just been pranked called." A short time later my friend lets me off the hook and now I'm a subscriber to prank calls. I may use it and I may not but please people loosen your shirt collars and laugh it up. Life is too short for too much serious thought.
The day after Thanksgiving my underage niece received a prank call from a lady saying 'my husband just died. You aren't going to leave me are you?' So my niece being young, naive, and a decent person felt sorry for this lady, started getting emotional and crying. Keep in mind this is the day after we had Thanksgiving dinner without her grandpa (my dad) who is no longer alive. As if having dinner with an empty chair at the table wasn't hard enough on her then the following day she has to endure this form of 'humor'. I fail to see how this would be humorous to anyone. These 'people' are evil - a call about someone dying is funny?
So I call the # on the caller ID to confront the person, and they didn't make the call. They weren't/aren't happy that prank calls are being made from their business phone, and they are in contact with their business attorney to pursue this further. At the end of the prank call they said 'you have been pranked by prankdial.com' which we initially thought was just made up and part of their joke, but after researching and putting the pieces together I determined the call came from their site - including an apology and confirmation the call came from their site.
I read all the whiny complaining on this website and frankly, the people who are crying about getting pranked seriously need to examine their lives. First off, it's likely someone you know who is screwing with you. Second, if you get that worked up over a phone call, you might consider going to therapy or even simply hanging up the phone. All of the pranks are such ridiculous premises that the only people who fall for them are literally **. "My boyfriend had a SEIZURE from PrankDial!" Oh ** off. Your boyfriend is a **. It's people like you who are ruining America. This is why Donald Trump is president. Gullible morons. People like you (morons) are the reason PrankDial exists. Or why phone scammers exist. PrankDial is ** hilarious and I intend to keep using it to victimize all of the people who are so stupid that they deserve it.
