Ugliness rears it nasty head again

This past Saturday night I was happily watching the the Predators play the Coyotes in Phoenix on TV. It was a late game. The phone rang at 10:17pm with PRIVATE CALLER on the caller id. I usually never pick these calls up, but my daughter was at a birthday party for her boyfriend in Nashville supposed to be playing laser tag. I thought it could be one of her friends or a parent calling. You never know when your kids is out, so the long and short of it is I answered. This woman, who called herself Vickie Bresland, on the other end of the line started to try to tell me my husband was cheating on me. Just like the letter back in January I wrote about here. I called her a few very nasty names and hung up on her. Of course the bitch called as JP Scored a goal and I missed it. The only real goal of the game Leggy got an empty netter but those just aren't the same... Thank goodness for replay! Anyway I thought that was the end of it, but the next morning I get a call from yet another woman. I answered this time because I had a plan to trip her up and it pretty much worked. This time I believe it was a black lady. She kept calling me annoying things like sugar and honey-pie. She didn't identify herself. She claimed she was a private investigator firm, but never would say the name. She said the husband of the woman my husband is supposedly having an affair with hired them. Of course she couldn't tell me the woman's last name or give me a description that really fit my husband. She gave me facts about my husband pulled straight from the web ( I know I found them). Basically what I got from it is she wants to extort money from me for supposed pictures of my husband with this "other woman". All the fake names and not telling me the the supposed firms name tells me it is a scam. The police think so too. I'm really not very worried my husband is stepping out on me. We do everything together. Plus there is a paper trail easily looked at for my husbands business trips. I know he loves me, and I'm pretty sure he knows I love him. The scary thing is these creepy people seem to know when he is going to be out of town. THAT FREAKS ME OUT! From now On I'll never ever say when Jim is going to be gone or is gone on the net. I called AT&T if I ever get another one of these calls they have means of tracing it that goes directly to law enforcement. I made a police report and they took all the information I'd gathered and the letter that was sent to me as evidence. We are getting a security system put in place and new locks. I'm having the computer checked for spyware and viruses. I hope the police can find these nasty people. I'll happily testify. They picked the wrong family to mess with the idiots.
