"I was about 10 or 11 and had just gotten my first phone. I was screwing around on it when an unknown number popped up on the screen, not knowing any better I answered. Me: Hello? Them: Hiii babyy iii looooove youuuu Me: I beg your pardon? Them: I loooooove youuuuu Me: Sir, you've just called a member of the United States Marine Core on a military base phone, this could be a federal off. They hung up the phone real quick. I feel it only fair to mention I think they were drunk, and I'm pretty sure that prank calling a military base is not a federal offense. But I was young and annoyed and did what would spook anyone. Pretended I was authority and that they might get arrested. They never called back though, so that's good"
"Yes, and I got a date out of it. It happened during college when I was living in the on campus dorms. It was around midnight on a holiday weekend. I couldn't afford to fly home, so I was one of the few that stayed in the dorms. After having worked that day, instead of going out, decided to stay in, and get some sleep. Now this was back when we had physical land lines, and my roommate had chosen to use an old fashion phone whose ringer used real metal bells. It only had 2 settings, loud and louder. Because it was an old building made of concrete brick walls, with the door open, sounds travelled well. Never missed a call, as you could hear this thing down the entire wing of the building. So when a call came in, it could wake the dead. I really hated that phone. So on this night just as I was on that edge of blissfully knocking out, my phone rang. RIIIIINNNNG. Me: What?!! (As my heart was trying to escape my chest) Her: Don't yell cutie, I know where you live. Why aren't you out tonight? (She, and some girl in the back ground are giggling) Me: Because I've been waiting all night for my angel of music to call me so I can ask you out. Obviously some girls having fun, so I went along with it. Turned out they lived in one of the other dorm buildings, they had also stayed during the holiday. With nothing to do, had been prank calling the student directory. Because of my response they were curious, so we all met up a few minutes later. We ended up playing board games the rest of the night. By the end I told her she hadn't answered my question about going out. She said yes"
"This brief exchange took place in our school's library. 'Hello?' 'Yes, this is pizza delivery, ma'am.' 'I didn't order a pizza, sir.' 'Oh, yeah you did. You called this morning for a XL cheese pizza. And, correct me if I'm mistaken, ma'am, but you also ordered 200 milkshakes with it. That'd be $500 please.' 'Oh, really now?' 'Yes, really.' 'Marcus, you dumba--, I can see you behind the table.' My story was brief and monotonous because the prank went horribly awry. If you wish to prank --- prank well, I advise"
"Few years ago when I was in 9th standard around, a friend of mine introduced me to the customer service helpline of Home Shop 18. The toll line was free of cost. I used to call and press certain buttons for talking to customer service. It went like this: 'Hello Mai Amitabh Bachhan Bol Rha Hun Kon Banega Crorepati se' (Hello this is Amitabh Bachhan speaking from 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire') in Amitabh Bachchan's thick n rough accent. [Amitabh Bachchan is a Superstar in India who hosts the show] 'Your friend is sitting with me on the hot seat and he has opted for Phone-a-Friend' And the other person would be like 'Sir come again?' 'Sir, Really?' It used to be fun at that time. P.S. I don't do it now"
"I prank-called my friend. My friend was in deep sleep. The conversation went like this. Prankster: We are calling from CBI. Victim: (Sleepingly) Ok, I don't want any loan. Prankster: No, the other CBI, there is a bomb in your room, please evacuate the building immediately. Victim: Dai, when did banks deal with bombs? Saying so, he slept of. Now we were laughing at the prankster"
"I was traveling in the train with my father from college to Delhi after my semester exams. In the middle of the journey, I got a call from an unknown number from someone who identified himself as my Electronics Professor. And his voice was pretty similar, so I believed him. Prof: Hey, you have to come back to school. Me: Why sir? What happened? Prof: We know you have cheated in the exam, you have to come to the department right now. (Suddenly I realized that I had written some formulas on the last page for that exam for reference and started wondering whether that's what this call is about. Immediately cursed myself for doing that.) Me: Sir I haven't done anything wrong. Moreover, how can I come sir. I am in the train right now. Prof: I don't know anything. You have to come or else, we will fail you and there will be more actions taken. He cut the call after that I was scared as sh-t and started thinking how will I reach there today itself. When I came back to my seat after the call, my father saw my pale face and asked me what's wrong. Before I could answer, I got another call from the same number. I picked the call with fear and there it was, my college friend. I was so furious with him for this prank. I could have kicked, punched and smothered him, if he was in front of me. Arghh! It was so stupid of me to believe that"
"The same best friend requested me to prank her then new and first ever girlfriend, We put the phone on loudspeaker. SHE: Hello ME: (in an angry tone) is this ABC? SHE: yes Sir. ME: I'm your Dean speaking from the University. We caught a guy here named XYZ who was sneaking into our girls hostel. And he's claiming that he came there to see you. Do you know him? SHE: (in a scary tone) no sir. I don't know anybody of that name. ME: But he is claiming that he knows you, you both went on a dinner together, he recharged your phone as well and came there to see you only. SHE: (in a crying tone) No sir no sir. I don't know any guy here. ME: can you come here to our university now? SHE : At this time Sir? (It was 9pm) ME: Yes. See...one of you is lying and its a big issue in the history of this University. Either one of you is gonna get suspended. SHE: (crying) No sir please sir. Trust me sir. ME: Okay then, recharge his phone and his friend's phone right now. SHE: eeeeee.... What sir? ME: Stop crying like a girl. It was XYZ's idea to prank call you. Sorry. (Then I gave phone to XYZ to get her scolding) heard this matter became serious at one time when my friend asked her the other day how could she say she don't know him. Lovers stand for each other in thick & thin. But then it all sorted out"
"This is the story of few days ago.... My phone rings..... I picked It up. Caller: Sir your ATM is expired
Me: (this is a fake call) thinking in my mind and said yaa , what I have to do for it. Caller: You just have to give details of your ATM. Me: Then write I am telling you. Caller: Ok tell. Me: Agar tunne phirse phone lagaya to mein teri police mein complain kar dunga. (If you called me again then I will complain against you in police station.) And he suddenly cuts the call........."
"I work at a hookah lounge and this is a call I received once: 'Thank you for calling (store name), this is Miriam, how can I help you?' 'Hey, how are you?' 'I'm doing well, and you?' 'Good, good. So I have 30 dollars.' 'Okay,' I start listing prices for our things and helping him decide what he could get for that. 'Well where do you think I should get pizza?' 'This is a hookah lounge.' 'Yeah, I know, I just wanted your opinion. Where should I get pizza with this 30 dollars?' 'Pretty much anywhere. That's a lot of pizza money.' I pointed him at a local place with huge slices and he thanked me profusely and hung up. Not sure if that was a prank call or if he was just incredibly stoned. Hope he got his pizza though"
"I had joined this 'X' company just a month ago when this happened. That day, like everyday, I left the office and went to the metro station. As the metro started moving, I got a phone call from an unknown number, definitely not an Indian number. It went like this- Ringing Me: Hello? Caller: Am I speaking to Mr Anshul Sharma? Me: Yes, you are. Who am I talking to? Caller: I'm the Head HR of 'X' company. I wanted to talk to you about something important. Me: Yes, sir! What is it about? Caller: Someone has filed a case against you for sexual harassment. Me (stunned): What are you talking about? It can't be possible? Who has filed it? Since I was in a metro surrounded with people, I had to keep my voice down Caller: We cannot discuss the details here. You have to come to the office early tomorrow. Me: I don't mind that. But at least tell me what's your name? Caller: You'll get to know everything when you reach early tomorrow. Me: I'll talk to my manager about it first. Caller: You can't do that. Me: I'll come tomorrow, but I will inform my manager first. Caller: As you wish. Bye. Then I started wondering who could this guy be. I realized it was a prank call but I wasn't able to recognize him. But I didn't have to wait long for it, as he called again, this time with his number and revealed it was him. He was using some new app which can modify your number and appear as if you're calling from a different country. He gave me a momentary scare there. But it was a cheap prank"
"A fake phone call from office's cordless mobile to my home. Our manager gifted it on the day of joining to us, so that we can contact our home in case of emergency. My crazy mind indexed the persons with whom I can play the prank. Of course, it was my dad in the first. I dialed 98########. Ringing.........My dad attends the call. Me: Is this Kousalya's father? (I spoke to him in American accent and tried hard to control my laugh so as to drag the conversation). Dad: Yes, this is (tells his name). Tell me. Me: Your daughter has not made her presence today in the office and she did not even make any prior information regarding her absence. Blah..blah....blah Dad(Shocked): Really? But she spoke to me in the morning while on her way to office. I'm not certain of what you are saying. Will call her. His tone was extremely breaking and about to cut the call. Before that I started calling.... Me: 'Dad......dad its your daughter.....Don't cut the call'. Dad: 'cursing'! (scolded a bit) Don't do all such crazy things. I was shivering inside, what would have happened to my daughter? You will not the know pain of loosing your daughter, unless you are a mother. Started a lecture and at the end he told me that I spoke proper American accent. Me: 'Sorry dad. Will never do it again. Thanks by the way'. After cutting the call, I realized the giddiness that he would have got"
"BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Ohhhhh YES! Yes, I have! 'Are you naked?' 'Why, yes... yes I am.' (he starts really panting now) 'Wow! That's hot! Tell me about your body!' 'OK, I'm sort of... late middle aged, but I keep after myself. I have very nice hair and curves.' 'Oooh yeah yeah! Do you like sex?!' 'Yes, Yes, I do love sex. I have sex with as many men as I can each night.' '(pant pant) Yeah, Baby! Do you know what I'm doing right now?' 'I can hazard a good guess. Are you feeling good?' 'Yes! Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah...' 'That's good. Because you are talking to YOUR MOTHER!!!' ROFL! Haven't I told you all, before, that I am a lifelong Dominatrix with a sadistic streak a yard wide?! I could just HEAR his erection vanish! He hung up, immediately, and I laughed myself sick. Sometimes, true cruelty does NOT involve whips and razorblades!"
"When I was the store manager of the Betsey Johnson boutique in the Houston Galleria, we had one guy who would consistently call the store from an out-of-state number. His story was that his 'Mistress' wanted to buy him some Betsey outfits. She didn't allow him to use the internet and he would get in trouble if she found out he was using the phone. He would tell whomever answered the phone his supposed sizes and ask for descriptions of outfits - including shoes and jewelry! - that he could wear to please his Mistress. Sometimes he would ask us to try things on and send him photos - I drew the line there; my girls were not allowed to send pictures of themselves to him! This never turned into a sale, but he also never got abusive or overtly sexual. If it was slow in the store and we were bored, we'd play along. I talked to the managers of some of the other Betsey stores and several had gotten calls from the same guy. Hey, Buddy - whatever floats your boat!"
"My gf and I were in the backseat and her parents were outside the car talking to some friends. (preacher and his wife) I decided to pull a prank. We ducked down in the seat and I began making the car rock. We were both trying not to laugh our a--es off. I began first: 'Oh God yes I've been blessed.' Then it was her turn.. 'Oh honey don't be stingy give it all to me.' The car is really rocking and most of it was from us fighting to not laugh. Silence until we could get our laughter under control. I could see her parents leaning against the car to keep it from rocking. Then we both threw in together. 'OH GOD, OH GOD YES, YES, YESSSSS.' By then we were laughing so hard we couldn't even breathe. The back door was opened and I looked up into the faces of her parents and the preacher and his wife. We both got out and was holding our heads down to try and control our laughter. Across the street were some bikers and other members of the neighborhood. There were loud cheers and whoops and hollers. The four standing there realized it was all a joke and were trying to look pissed off. That only added to it all. More whoops and hollers. I raised my hand fist clenched"
"Now, you have to understand me. I am a guy with good intentions. So please don't laugh. Please. Prankster(P): Hello! (Some blah blah in Hindi.) Me: Hindi nahi maalum (The only Hindi sentence i know, hope it means "I don't know Hindi") P: I am from a poor background, we need A+ blood. The XYZ hospital gave me your number. Me Ok, when do you need? Right now? P: No tomorrow 10 am. by the way I am Salim Raja. I have already called many. Me: Ok Call me tomorrow, if you still needed blood. The next day. P: We had enough thank you. Me: Okay, fine. My ideas of cutting the class went down. The evening. P: (started crying) Thank you. Me: I didn't even come there, sorry you dialed the wrong number. P: No No, it's the heart, thank you. He was sobbing. Me. We people do it regularly, if you need blood anytime. call me. One of the pranksters came to me, told me that i am goodhearted and told me the facts. I was furious at the same very embarrassed"
"This happened with my grandfather. This happened in 1987 when rajiv Gandhi was the prime minister of India. Being a government officer he often used to get calls from other officers. So one day the conversation went like this. Let g be my grandfather. G answered the phone. Stranger: aare mai rajiv Gandhi bol raha hu. (This is rajiv Gandhi speaking). G got very scared as he was just a petty officer and why would rajiv Gandhi call him in the evening. G then immediately disconnected the call. G then thought that something was fishy so he prepared a answer if the stranger called again. After some time again the phone rings. Stranger: aare mai rajiv Gandhi bol raha hu. (Don't you understand this is rajiv Gandhi speaking). G: mai mahatma Gandhi bol raha hu! (I am mahatma Gandhi speaking) The stranger just disconnected the call instantly. The next day when he went to the office a co worker said that rajiv Gandhi was the name of his relative who wanted to speak to the co worker but had the wrong number. They did have a good laugh that day"
"When I was in college, I was sitting with my girlfriend in canteen. Whenever I am sitting with her and the phone rings that time, she has habit of asking 'whose message' , 'whose call' More to add about her: She is too shy to talk to anyone . So again, one fine day while sitting in the canteen my phone started ringing. I saw, its the customer care calling. I was about to disconnect but in between she interrupted GF: who's calling?? ME :(In a mood of finally ending her habit of asking such question) My dad is calling. Wait let me talk. Then I pretended as if i am talking to my Dad . ME : Hello Dad .. Yes dad I am fine ...... yes right now I am free and sitting inside canteen .... I am sitting with one of my friend ...... yeah she is a girl...... yes she would love to talk to you....wait let me hand over the phone too her... While I was pretending it as a conversation between me and my dad and she was listening to it.... she realized that I am going to ask her to talk to my dad and as i already mentioned earlier , she is too shy to talk to anyone hence she was almost frightened to take the call and talk to my dad which actually was the customer care from the other side. GF: (with a lower voice to me ) Oh my god!! I will have to talk to your dad ... what will I say ... (Her face was almost red) I handed over the phone to her. She was almost shocked ... she never expected that her first conversation with my Dad would happen in such a way but anyhow she gathered the strength and took the phone from me .... GF: (Frightened ) Hello Uncle ... Namaste .... helloo (DUMBSTRUCK). Other side of the call : AAJ he ye caller tune lagaye ..masik shulk rs 30 ........She realized that it was not my Dad who was going to talk to her and i was fooling her. Her red face with almost dead look suddenly changed into laughing loud ... She gave me punches with that phone while laughing. Now whenever she is with me and my phone rings, i look at her and she immediately gets her fingers on her lips.. telling it via expression that i am not going to ask who's calling"

"This was my first year in college. I had to make new friends. I befriended a guy whose roommates were the pranksters. Once I went to their room for a sleepover. One of them suggested let's prank someone. To blend in, I gave a number of my classmate. They went on to prank him. He was noticeably crying, as we were playing with his love interest. Suddenly another one of us wanted to talk with him. So this goes like this. Prankster1: Okay, okay, my brother wants to speak with you. By the time of passing, he might have heard us laughing. Victim: Who are you? (Clearly angry.) Prankster2: Eh? Rudramoorthy speaking. This guy closed the mouth-piece, and said 'Who is this guy, Rudramoorthy? I've heard this name many times today?' We were laughing outrageously, He was our principal. The victim was noticeably laughing in the other end too"
"Two stories: Got a phone call from what sounded like a very young boy. He stammered out 'Is Susie there?' and I could hear his friends giggling in the background. I told him he had the wrong number, but I guess he had worked up his courage to make this call, and wasn't paying attention to what I said, because his response was 'Well, tell her she ain't a virgin no more!' and he hung up. I suppose if I was Susie's father I might have been upset. We also would get a phone call, about once a month from somebody asking if Fred was there. I'd explain they had the wrong number, they'd apologize, and hang up. I soon learned to recognize the voice, and this went on for almost a year. Finally one day I tired of it and said that Fred had just left, could I take a message? They left their name and a phone number (which I didn't bother to note) and asked him to call back, and I never heard from them again. I suppose that somebody, somewhere, has been waiting for years now for Fred to call them back!"
"My cousin (My Masi's son; lets call him M) used to be a prankster during our school days. I was not good at playing pranks but did not mind playing along. Also, I was bold enough to try something new. So one fine day, I was at my cousin's place. One of his cousins (A) was also there. So, M and A came to me and said they have a plan. We will call random people from the landline and tell them they have won some kind of lottery or dinner at a very famous place in the city. This was year 2005 and I guess these sort of calls were not that common those days. They asked me to make all the calls since I was a girl and girls are considered to be nice and honest. I shrugged and said Ok. So we called 10-15 people (Including some of my close friends in school) telling them various things like, you have won one night stay at so and so place ..etc. Then suddenly A said let's call his School Principal. ('A' was studying in Birla school, Nainital at that time and as per him the Principal was one hell of a person.). I was reluctant at first but eventually those 2 boys convinced me to do so. Below is the conversation that took place (P- principal, M- Me). M: I am Calling from Machan, restaurant. (Machan used to be a really famous place in Nainital. I think, it still is.) P: yes. M: Sir you have won free lunch at Machan. You can visit our place anytime tomorrow between 12:30 PM to 3 PM. P: May I know the reason for this special Offer. M: Sir we have done a survey of people (I don't remember what exactly I said) and you are one of the lucky winners. P: Hmm... why should I believe this is not some kind of silly prank. (By this time all my nervousness had gone and the devil in me was rather enjoying the experience.) M: Sir, I cannot do anything to make you believe but we will wait for you tomorrow at our place. (a lot more things were said in between, which I am not able to recall. Entire conversation from our end was well scripted and we were prepared to handle all these sort of questions) I had played my part well, but did not know if it had worked. So we waited patiently. I went to school next day, during lunch my friends starting discussing the calls. And how they are excited to go to so and so place on so and so day. Some of them were skeptical. And I was really enjoying it all. To make it more fun, I said I also got a similar call. I went home, we (my cousin, his cousin and I) didn't know whether or not the principal had bought our crap and visited the restaurant for lunch.
At around 3- 3:30 PM, our landline starting ringing, I was about to pick it up but my brother said he will do it. M had somehow sensed that the call was from either Machan or the principal. The caller asked my cousin who he was. And said that he got such call from this number yesterday and when he went to the place there was no such event or anything going on. As per him, a huge scene was created at the restaurant and Principal had to come back without his free lunch. He was utterly pissed. The principal was determined to know who the girl was and wouldn't end the call without getting his answers. Apparently things had turned really ugly at the restaurant. But my cousin was pro at this so knew how to handle the situation, he said this is a STD booth and a lot many people visit here every day. Sorry he cannot help"
