well, to start, I was following up on your thread about the strange message
on your answering machine. I dont want to try and freak you out more than
you probably are. My father, worked for one of the biggest telephone
carriers in the US for over 32 years. He worked in what's called a Central
Office or 'CO' as it's called in the telco business. These CO's contain in
them what is called a 'switch'. I dont know how familiar you are with
telephone systems or what not, but these switches are basically a backbone
to the other switches around the country, which in turn are around the
world, etc etc. In essence, you can relate to a DSL line, or a t1 line (I'm
assuming you know what these are of course, since you seem to know about
computers the web etc etc.) where it brings a direct line from your house to
this central office.
Let me talk about my dad a bit if I may, so I can
hopefully bring a perspective on this so you dont think I'm crazy. My dad
is probably THE most UN-paranoid guy there is. He think's I'm crazy because
I talk about these kinds of things. So, with that said, he had said that
approximately, 5 - 6 years ago, and continuing on till today, there would be
government people that would come into the CO's. These government people
varied, a lot of the time from FBI, CIA, Federal Marshalls, etc etc. When
they would come in, they would require special circuits be installed into
the 'switch'. In the telco business these special circuits are known as
'supersnooper' lines. (I know it sounds cheesey, but you have to know telco
people to understand this).
No one in the telco business had seen anything
like these special circuits before, ever! While he was installing these
special circuits, he was physically watched, and instructed what to do by
the government types. He was not allowed to ask any questions about the
types of circuit being used, or what they were for. Now, as time went on
and technology came along my dad said that he noticed these special circuits
back then resembled what look like now special 'listening' lines. Where
with proper authority they could listen in on an ENTIRE telephone switch.
Now keep in mind, one CO, or switch, can cover about (I dont know, I'm going
off of the local ones in my area) about 35k-50k. Now that's a rough
estimate of course. But the fact still remains that these listening
circuirts were well in place before any type of laws requiring phone taps
were ever in place, Patriot Act i.e. Well, as far as I'm concerned, the
gov. may have needed these circuirts for something else, like maybe a high
speed connection to remote offices, or a special circuit for who knows what.
But the fact that they were very specific, and no one had seen these types
of lines before really makes me wonder. You're probably asking yourself why
you've never heard of this before. My guess is the fact that there's maybe
only anywhere from 1-5 per city people who actually do work on the switches
in the CO. This number is included with the 'outside guys' or the guys you
see working on power poles, and come to your house to install stuff.
number is very low, as it only takes a couple of them to actually keep one
switch going. Keep in mind this 1 -5 may be different. But in the case
where we live, that's the number my dad said. Our city, including
surrounding city's is roughly 100k. So as you can see the number who works
on the switch is very small. As to what you heard on your machine, with the
clicking sound and everything else. My dad said that the technology in
place is so amazing there's no way you would hear a clicking on or off, it's
a farse about that.
So basically what I'm getting at, with this special
circuit in place, the gov can monitor an entire city, with no warrants,
nothing else involved. As of course that's probably how it's always worked.
Now to the freaky part. My dad serviced about 5 CO's and the switches
within them. Now, not all of these switches had these special super snooper
lines in them. about 3 - 5 months before the terrorist attacks happened, he
was required to install super snooper lines in all of the switches, as were
his friends that worked in the other CO's he didnt service, including
switches in AZ, UT, Colorado, NM. This is scary my friend, as you can
imagine the kind of government deployment required to get this done, and the
amount of time on their part. Now, whether it has anything to do with the
attacks or not I have no clue, is it a conspiracy theory, who knows. but I
think it's a bit wierd myself. If you have other questions let me know. as
I can probably answer them for you. Hope this helps you out a little bit.

This thread should be looked in to again especially with all the wiretap stories in the news.
OK.... there is the number but I do not have probable cause to look it up. As fare as I can tell no crime was committed. + WOS would have to made a case about it other then a strange phone call. Hell, I get those from my Ex all the time

I have no clue what that 1-888-472-4052 phone number is.
Skip tracing did not turn any results, and telcos won't spit out the phone owner without a court order, so we are still in the dark.
