Telephone Call Problems
If you receive a phone call that is life threatening, immediately dial *57.
JUST HANG UP!
Wisconsin Statute 947.012(1) states that whoever makes a telephone call with the intent to frighten, intimidate, threaten, abuse, or harass by:
Call trace allows a party to initiate an automatic trace of the last incoming call. This is useful after receiving harassing or prank calls if you wish to pursue legal action. There is a charge either to obtain or to use Call Trace services.
To use Call Trace:
Immediately after receiving a call that you wish to be traced, press and release the switchhook and listen for a dialtone. Press *57. If the trace was successful, you will hear an automated announcement, and you must stay on the line and follow the instructions provided. The traced number will be stored at CenturyLink for approximately 7-10 days; however, CenturyLink will not release the information directly to you. You must call your local law enforcement agency within seven days to begin the legal process of having law enforcement obtain the offending number from CenturyLink.
