My mom had this friend named Chris. She would stop by at my moms house all the time, without calling, and it really annoyed my mom but she was too nice to say anything about it because thats how my mom was. Well apparantley Chris found out a couple weeks ago that my mom passed away a few months ago and shes been calling all my family members and asking them for MY phone number. She called my grandma and my uncle and found out where my sister lives. She drove to my sisters house unannounced and now calls my sister multiple times a day trying to get MY number. I have no idea why this lady wants to get ahold of me so bad and I really dont want her knowing where I live or having my phone number because I know she will stop by and/or call all the time and I dont want her to. I have 5 siblings so why she is so dead set on having my information really bothers me. I have no idea what she wants! Im too afraid to call her because I dont want her having my number. My sister is getting fed up with her calling her multiple times a day and trying to get my number and my sister said she is acting like a "psycho/stalker". My sister is begging me to call her to get her to stop calling everyone looking for me but I dont know what to do. I really really dont want this lady to start showing up and she is a bit on the weird side...

Wow, that's a really tough one. Can you just have your sister tell her that she does not feel comfortable giving out YOUR phone number? I would say maybe you should just call her, but she'll probably ask for your address and phone number and I have no idea how you would get out of that...

Can you sister block her number so she can't get calls from her anymore? I guess if you do feel up to calling her do you have a pay phone by you? Maybe you could use the pay phone so she would have that number and not yours. That is kind of a crazy situation. I hope it gets better for you!

Maybe if your sister keeps putting her off she will eventually give up. It must be pretty frustrating for your sis, too. I wish I had some good advice.

she already has your sister's number so can you call her from your sister's house and ask her to please leave the family alone?

Wow, sorry you have to deal with that. We have a family friend that's really annoying and no one wants to talk to her. I know it sounds horrible, but you just have to know her to understand (probably similar situation you're in). Anyway, every few years she will start calling my mom, my sister and me. She will call every 10-20 minutes for hours! We just screen our calls and don't answer. After a few days she gives up and a year or so will go by before she tries again. My mom would occasionally pick up the phone and talk to her, but my sis and I would avoid her.

That's the only advise I have is to ignore the calls, if your family gives out your number. Hopefully she won't find your address and stop by. We never had that problem.

I told my sister to just ignore her calls and she doesnt. Shes starting to get irritated with ME for not calling this woman back. I told her to just either ignore her or tell her I dont want to talk to her. I dont care which. If she continues to bother my sister I am going to have to call her I guess, maybe I will do it from my sisters house. Thats a good idea and I will be over there on Sunday.

Can you create an email address you wouldn't mind deleting and ask you sister to have her email you? Wait, can't you block your number when you call her?

That's a little creepy. I would definitely ask your sister to not give out your number and like some others said, maybe call from your sister's house and ask this crazy woman to stop bothering you all.

I think that is a great idea!!! Next time she calls your sister, she can give out the email address! Think *67 is to block your number.

I doubt this woman even owns a computer. Half the time shes hopping from boyfriend to boyfriend, she has 5 kids she abandoned (3 are still teens), and she hasnt worked in years. I think my mom felt sorry for her more than anything, my mom was so sweet like that she couldnt turn anyone away and then of course they would take advantage of her. I think I will just stick with calling her from my sisters and that way it will be over and she still wont know anything about me.

That's a good idea about calling her from your sister's house. Did she also try to get in touch with your other siblings too? Maybe she just wants to send her condolences to each and every one of you since your mother was so nice to her before. IDK, this is indeed a tough one, KUP!!

Sounds frustrating! I am so sorry. I agree with the above posts about e-mail but if you don't think she has one... try a payphone!! Call her from there and say "look, you gotta leave us alone"!! She can't find you that way unless she's FBI! I am so sorry to hear this!

*67 is the way to block a number in the states. That's how I called my student's parents with my cell phone when they had a long distance number that I couldn't call from the school. Sorry you're in another tough position. You need a break!

Yikes, thats a tough one. I'd block your number, call her and ask her to respect your family's privacy.

Yeesh!!! Yep, I'd say call her from your sisters house or a payphone. Find out what she wants, and then be firm with your wishes! I've known people like this, and I totally understand!

Let us know what happens!
