Prank Calls Can Cause Meltdowns

Warning: Prank calls may cause meltdowns.

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One too many prank calls can cause victims on the other end of the line to snap.

But it’s all in good fun according to Fahim Saleh, creator of PrankDial.com, which makes annoying prank calls to people.

Jokesters have bugged their loved ones with calls from a fake Indian tech support representative, a hillbilly that insists they were the ones who called first, and Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” blasted over the receiver.

Saleh says that while some people laugh it off, others have gotten so “worked up” about the calls they’ve called the cops and claimed harassment.

In some cases, they might have a point since many users tend to prank call victims multiple times a day. However, for protection, the website allows people to have their numbers blocked.

Aside from crazy crank calls, Saleh is working on an automatic break-up call to easily end relationships with one simple ring.
