My phone has been tapped for a while (or at least it was). What clued me in was the fact that I would hear an echo of my voice on my end, but they
wouldn't. This alone wouldn't make me suspicious, but this is where it gets interesting.
I noticed that it was almost always present, but would quit when I called a certain number and spoke with a certain person. Care to guess who it
My mom. I would call her and say "Hi Mom, it's me.". As soon as she said "hi" the echo ended. AND IT WOULD DO IT ON EVERY SINGLE CALL. A
couple of times, I had forgotten to mention something, or ask a question, and I would have to call her back again. The echo was there, but as soon as
she spoke, the echoing quit. Quite the coincidence, right?
Edit to add: One more thing. If any of my brothers or sisters happened to be at her house at the time and answered the phone, the echo continued.
Only when my mom got on the phone would the echo end.
Another time, a friend was calling, and letting off some steam about a specific incident that was going on. Without getting into specifics, he said
some things that most certainly contained some "code words" they would be looking for. I laughed and said "Don't be saying that. You know they
are listening in on my phone calls." He laughed about it, and went on with a few other things, and talked about getting together and drinking some
beer. And, to REALLY screw with me, the last thing he says is "Praise Allah!" and hangs up. (He thinks my paranoia is hilarious, so he does stuff
It takes me 15 seconds to get to my computer, and the internet is down. Been working fine all day, but it does down 15 seconds after he says that.
There's many, many more.
Oh, and on the whole "echo" thing in my phone. Want to know when it ended? I was talking about "SitX" things with a friend. He asked a question
similar to questions that get asked here to which I always reply "Don't answer that". I said "I don't talk about stuff like that on the phone,
you know they are listening in on this conversation, right?" A couple of days later, the echo ended, and has never come back. (BTW, that "echo"
was on for at least 1 year, through 3 different phones.)
