SHE KEEPS GETTING OUR NUMBER PLEASE HELP!?

What can we do, how can we put a stop to this? My husband's estranged (for a very good reason) mother no matter what we do keeps getting a hold of our brand new phone numbers. We literally have to change our number every couple of months or so because she keeps getting ahold of them. We moved out of town about 2 hours away, changed out numbers (a dozen times) and cut off all contact from this nut yet she keeps finding us. Law enforcement is useless we've tried that already and we don't give our numbers out only 3 people have it but she still gets a hold of it somehow and calls and harrasses us. We think this time she got ahold of his number from his car company but we're not entirely sure. We have even warned this company she's crazy and will call them and to please not give her any information. We are at our wits end she doesn't take a hint and won't go away.

    So let her call. That's why you have an answering machine. With one of these, you never have to talk to anyone you don't want to. Problem solved.

    When she calls, answer the phone and say Hello? When she starts talking just quietly set the phone on the table or desk, walk away and go about your business. When the phone starts to beep hang it up. When she calls back, REPEAT.

    You have to understand, she is just calling to talk to you so she can bother you. Eventually she will quit.

    Go with something like Ooma and then just block her. Yes, you may have to block a bunch of numbers but she's going to get bored of finding numbers to use to get them blocked after one use.

    You could also file for a restraining order if you can prove the harassment.

      We have been doing all that! She doesn't get tired she's completely nuts and persistent I have never seen anything like this in my life. Law enforcement and courts are useless, they won't do a damn thing and just see it as "a mother wanting contact with her son"
