I had an odd call a couple of days ago, with a recording stating something like "We have a very urgent message for someone at this number. We are not a sales company or telemarketer. It is vital that someone return this call at 877-###-#### as soon as possible. This is a toll free call, and I repeat that this is urgent, etc..."
Curious, I call the # and said that I had received a recorded message trying to reach someone at my number...
Operator: What is the number you are calling from
reply: if you don't know, I am not telling you.
Operator: Please hold (I held about 15 secs then hung up)
Hit redial: same Operator answered
Me: what is this all about and who is trying to reach whom?
Operator: is there a "sam *some name*" at this number?
Operator: is there a "*some other weird name*" at this number?
Operator: I'm sorry, I guess we have the wrong number, I will take you off of our list.
Since then, we keep getting these calls that show up as 999-999-9999 on the ID. I answer, get three quick "click" sounds and then it hangs up.
Anyone know what that is all about? Is the 999# a coincidence or did I just make a major stupid mistake and call to confirm with some scam artist that our # is a legitimate phone number?
I should have known better than to call...but was so **** curious! They did a good job of making it sound important. *NOTE TO SELF: "IF it is important...a REAL PERSON will call...NOT a recording!" DOH!!!
Won't do that again, now I just worry about what I may have done to compromise our phone/home/identities, etc....
If anyone has had this happens or has an idea what it is about, Please let me know!
