Forgive my tardy reply. My mother was on the receiving end of a flurry of crank calls. She "nipped it in the bud" quickly.
1) Call the police and make a formal complaint. The police should be able to tell you what telephone "code" to enter as soon as you hang up on them. This may vary from country to country, region to region, so make sure they (the police) give you the right code and explain how to enter it correctly.
2) When you get your phone bill, for every call which you entered, the number will display the code after it. (something like: 01/01/09 3 minute duration...code 049) or whatever the code or your local phone bill will show.
3) Go BACK to the police, offer over a copy of your phone bill. The police now have the ability to contact your phone company and get the name and numbers of everyone who called you in which you entered the code. (I don't know if it works on cellphones, but it probably does unless the caller is using a supermarket brand cheap pre-paid phone).
4) The POLICE visit the jackass(es) who called you since in step #1 you filed a complaint. The calls stop, and if not, an arrest WILL be made.
Good luck! Don't take any crap from cultists!
