Harassing calls, ads target woman



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A woman reported Aug. 19 that someone had been repeatedly calling her and posting Craigslist ads using her number to harass her.

On Aug. 16, someone called her with targeted messages using profanity and vulgarity. She hung up, but someone using the same number called her several times “in rapid succession” afterward.

Two days later, she received five texts of a “threatening nature.”

On the same day, she noticed that someone had posted a Craigslist ad for two phones and used her number as the contact number. She was able to contact Craigslist to take the listing down, but another phone ad using her contact information appeared hours later.

The woman said she has not had an issue with anyone and does not know who could be harassing her.
