  1. Best answer

    Yes, you can file a complaint for harassment in either the town where the calls were made or where they were received. As part of the State's case, it may be necessary to subpoena the defendant's phone bills. I suggest that you start keeping a journal of the dates and times when you receive these calls.


  2. You can file in your town, the person's town, or the town in which the action took place.
