So the other day I received a call with the number "000-000-0000" on the display.

I thought WTH is this? thats a messed up number!?

so I answer anyway just thinking it's going to be the phone company maybe checking the line.

As soo as I picked up and said "Hello?" a robot voice said "That was the incorrect reply" and disconected.

So I attempted to call back and the operator said that that number does not and never exsisted....

Has anyone else experienced this?

I get 000-000-0000 as a call on my cell about three times a year. I've never answered because I always assumed it was telemarketing.

if anyone gets a call from this number try answering with something impractical... like The dogs in the dishwasher, or the eggs have been plucked, Rosco's waffles are ready... Idk, something stupid. Just dont say Hello, cause i found out already thats the wrong answer.

That is strange. Maybe the call was meant for someone else. The thing to do is take the last four digits of your number and change one number above and below that number. Example would be 3344 would be 4455 above the number 2233 below the number. The thing is the combinations are large. You would need to change each number once then twice. Try all combinations and make a list. Take this list and try to compare to others in your area. If you have a match then check out who that person is and start your investigation from there. It may take you 6 months to a year but hell what else is there to do?

CLID - caller line identification shouldn't be able to be hacked. But look here it seems it is possible under certain conditions. Apparently there is a thing called a Pesto changeo box which will flood the receiving line with the false information after the original CLID has been sent - but you have to have the chip in your end (or your exchange - not too sure) for you to be suseptable.

Or it could be that you a now 'marked' - I wouldn't trust the brakes on your car

This might be of some help:

whocalled.us...

Here is what someone from Vonage says about the issue, and seems to clarify things further (see the bottom comment):

www.vonage-forum.com...

I received a call from this number once in the past and if I remember correctly it was a telemarketer from some foreign country. I always figured it wasn't registering the number because I only use a cellphone.

Voice Recognition System, you've been tagged, and you can never get away!


Kidding, I don't know. We got a call about a week or two at work from a number that was all 8s and 1s, not in an order that would seem to be a phone number. The caller was a live person though, asking for the former company owner. The former owner hadn't been the owner for over 5 years now, so that combined with the odd number made it seem pretty weird.

I wouldn't put much stock in this but I'll throw it out here anyway because the part about a mechanical voice reminded me of this. Ever messed around with ham radio? Well if anyone out there has and can attest to this than hop on because I have no first-hand experience. Ham radio enthusiasts sometimes pick up mysterious frequencies that usually have a mechanical voice repeating numbers or some other gibberish over and over. The voices have been known to be male and female. These were most frequent during the cold war but still happen today. The popular opinion is that it was spies relaying information in code. There's no proof of that though. So my point is, maybe there's some connection? Probably not, but interesting none-the-less.

Cheers.

There is a site on the internet.. i forgot what it is, where you can call a person and have any number show up on the caller id. Man, we had alot of fun with the 911 number... most people are too dumb to realize 911 is just for incoming calls!

Maybe one of your friends was playing a joke on you.

Well if they were sending a code would it not be a better idea to use some form of DTMF? when ever I got to play with a CB or other radio there was a 'squark' each time you hit the PTT -that was a number that could ID the rig.

I believe it's a number-mask synonymous with (no number) and Caller-ID Unknown.

Normally telemarketers. The number is not "in use" because it's much like 192.168.1.1, a firewall IP and is not used by anyone in specific.

Maybe it's a Voice Regognition protocol for a secret network of spys...or maybe not. Either way its pretty weird.

I swear i didnt make this up, I told My wife and she suggested it could of been a contest as well as posted above. I already thought about the voice regognition.

As for the Ham radio, those numbers are codes that correspond to numbers given to agents in the feild. The agents have a list with certain numbers that have meanings, the list is scrambled so noone can intercept the message unless they have teh proper frequency and list. There are 4 different frequency's that I know of that brodcast this, they are FBI, CIA, MOSSAD,and KGB. Because i dont have either the list or frequency I cannot detect what the numbers mean.

and Lastly I remember reading something about "Une Gellar" receiving a similar phone call in the 70's. Except he must of answered correctly because the voice on the other end told him what he was to do. I however must of not been paying attention when I looked at the display.... If there is a next time I will answer with a messed up statement.

When I have movies that are late at Movie Gallery, I get a voice message from 000-000-0000 telling me that my movies are late.

I also have received many of these calls and they range from telemarketers to blockbuster telling me my movies are late. Not sure why it comes up as 000-000-0000. maybe because most of us don't answer calls that say private or unknown, so they are thinking we will answer these calls since they come up on our phones as a odd sequence.
