The Guys That Prank Called Us at 4, 5 and 6 am

Every once in a while someone decides it would be original and cute to prank call us.

In this particular case, the caller woke my family at 4, 5 and 6 am from the phone number 562-322-5116. Apparently the children of AT&T customer Joe Lopez, whose relative Lillian lives at 8119 Golden, Paramount, California 90723. $50K annual income on a $243K house.

It wasn’t even a “is your fridgeorator running?” funny call. Just kids shuffling the phone around like they thought they were NASA scientists for getting me on the phone.

  1. Joe wants momma to call Nutcheese’s dad at 3 a.m. Pacific Time, Kevin? I’ll tell mom he’s the one whut stole her xanax and sis’s seroquel. He gets off work at 2:30 a.m., does he?

  2. I would prank call these people myself but I can’t figure out how to block my number on either my regular phone or my cell phone. I do think it would be funny if everybody on this blog did it. We could say “nalts says hello.” Or maybe not.

  3. P.S. I assume this was on your home phone, not your cell. Someone as high profile as you, and with so much personal information out there about you, should not have their phone number or address listed in the phone book. That’s my personal opinion.

  4. Sukatra,

    It’s the 21st century. Even if you go unlisted, The motivated person can cough up $30 bucks for an online background search, and find out where you live & work, what car you drive, the bills you pay (& don’t pay), address, phone numbers including cells, and a whole crapload more.

    Of course, you need to have a solid starting point, like a full name and location to get that far, but that’s usually not impossible to find either.

    Going unlisted is great for keeping the honest, honest. Beyond that, it won’t do too much good today.

    PS-Why does the background check I pulled on you say that your favorite ice cream flavor is “Cherry with anchovies”? That’s a little gross, isn’t it?


  5. The big VH ‘invasion’ turned out to be a dud. I doubt it had anything to do with that.

    Kevin, I might recommend that the house # get’s turned off overnight. You give your Cell to people who might call if the world ends. I occasionally get someone trying to send me a fax a 3am. Worst part is the ID is hidden. If I knew who it was I’d find a ‘couple pipe hittin’ *** with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch to get midevil on their ass’

  6. jimmer, a dud eh? huh, oh well was good PR then for Vloggerheads. Unless… the so called “attack” was all part of the plan. Of course, if that were the case then I’d lose my total faith in humanity, again.

  7. Wait- I just realized. You people are reading these posts the night before I write them, aren’t you. Or else you’re funny in the morning.

  8. Somehow someone from 4chan got my number and prank called it. I got their name/number and left them 2-3 minute messages every Saturday for about 2 months about how interesting an intentionally mundane topic was.

  9. Somecallmetim –

    I agree, but most people are not that motivated, especially if they’re 12 or 13 year old boys having a sleepover and don’t come up with the idea until midnight anyway. For anyone that motivated, I agree. You’re fucked no matter what you do.

    And I do not like cherry ice cream with anchovies. The only cherry thing I like is whole marischino cherries. And I do not care if I spelled that right or not.

  10. @sukatra: It’s maraschino.

    I used to get prank phone called in the middle of the night by the idiot JDs across the street. They thought we didn’t know/couldn’t figure out it was them. This was about the time *69 became available. They got in big trouble with daddy. Now one of them is a town cop. You can probably understand why I laughed hysterically when someone from the town came to my door to ask me if I knew the kid and wondered if I thought he’d make a good cop. I thought that visit was a prank.
