    There is no answer machine on the landline, could it be a fault on the line? She is paranoid someone listening in.

    There's no telephone line fault that can cause this , speech lines are real time conversation without storage or buffering unless it's Skype or voip

    Covert surveillance ( No way it would be that unless they had links to Terror or organised crime ) is too sophisticated these days to cause it

    Paranoia or imagination

    I've had something similar. I was talking to someone and my words were being repeated back to me about 1-2 seconds after I had spoken them - a bit like those delayed tape loops that Pink Floyd used to use. It was a very hollow, metallic sort of sound. I assumed that there was some kind of device at the other end that was feeding back the signal - perhaps an external speaker. I am not very technical with this stuff, so that's a guess, but it definitely happened. It made the conversation difficult.
