    How to use "Crank call" in context?

    There are a few different types of crank calls that can be made, but all of them revolve around someone (usually a stranger) calling someone on the phone, pretending to be someone else, and trying to get them to do something or take some action or money. The caller may try to put them on hold or ask them to put money into a pot or a specific account, and once the victim does anything, the caller hangs up, pretending to have done what was asked of them.

    Crank calls can be really frustrating, especially if you never know when or where they're going to happen.
