Harassing or annoying phone calls might include calls made by pranksters randomly or calls made intentionally by people with whom you have been acquainted. They can include calls at hours when you are sleeping; frequent pointless calls; calls where the caller says nothing; or obscene calls.
Harrassing calls may be made with intent to fraud, but may also be made just so the caller can get a reaction from you. Most can be stopped if you use some simple techniques. Your telephone is for your personal use and service. It is under your control and you are not obligated to talk to anyone.
Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used to refer to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person's personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain. While nothing can guarantee that you won't become a victim of identity theft, you can minimize your risk, and minimize the damage if a problem develops, by making it more difficult for identity thieves to access your personal information.
