The issue in GetHuman-wmcgilvr's own words
Call home ... Received prank phone call and it tied up our line so we couldn't call out or receive calls for a short time. I'm afraid they might have used our number to make calls. The number they called from is (***) ***-****. Can you check and see if any call were made using our number, and can you block this number so they can't call us again. Our number is (***) ***-****.
This prank call might let them use my phone number to make other calls and charge them to my account.
Just check and see if any unauthorized calls were made on our number and block that number so it can't be used. It's a PRANK call to get your number.
I have been with CenturyLink for a LONG time and always pay my bill on time.
Don't know what to do.
