Useful post.. Particularly the piece about 'Swatting'. I guess you really don't want to make an enemy of Lockheed Martin.

Afternote:
By the way Brill.. I believe it's the 'Love' of money that is generally considered the root of all evil.

I did a web search and found a few people mentioning that number. The calls were telemarketers. I know I have gotten a 000-0000 call but I don't remember if the AC was 202, 000, or another.

Don't call it back, or anwser if "they" call again. You will probably be tracked or something. It probably enables a tracking device if you anwser. Watch your back!


heh, see this where I may differ from some on this kind of thing. I will answer next time with no expectations or presumptions, but I will mention that "this phone call may be recorded for quality control purposes" and hit record on the ol' mp3 player or something, I think it's only fair really.


I really don't know what it's about, in the least it would appear these calls are all related (to the political system in some way atleast) & may be serving more then one function.

I would only hope LHM or something would be trying to contact me, I wouldn't mind having a pow-wow with any fed or aerospace contractor like them right now. I really have nothing to hide, love my country(like the dysfunctional family member right now unfortunately). This country was found on a principle of Freedom, and I love freedom, fairly simple to me. It's not something that just comes without effort and struggle however and I understand that. And if we think about it, it's not the system that necessarily sucks, it's the people who are abusing it and twisting it for their own ends. It's an on going struggle in a sense, things are just unbalanced right now.

What could they say or do to me really? Prison, audit, stray bullet, "suicide"? Ooo I'm such a big threat, I have no money to take, not many possessions, I'm not a criminal at all, don't like hurt others or myself, I just study and create stuff pretty much. My political views make me a "home grown threat" then? Pssh, yeah right. Like I said I love this country, unlike many, I am Native and that that isn't comes from Spain before the Americas. This land is essentially where my family has always been(from Texas to Cali). Once Mexico now US, this is my family's homeland by all rights and purposes to my perspective of me living now.

I was born an American with an ideal of freedom and I know Bush has pissed on the constitution, but I still believe in the true ideal of freedom. So maybe it took someone like Bush/Cheney to make us all realize how good we had it, and that it is time to hone our systemic ideal of freedom just a little more to protect it from being raped again. This time, with more knowledge & more compassion for everyone in the world's benefit, not just the United States. So that maybe we can all actually prosper just a little more, we don't always have to keep capitalizing.


So yeah once again, "they" can see what's on my magic porn box if they want. Or they can see what kind of "weird" stuff I'm into, although it would seem they have the better info on the stuff anyways. Hell from what I've been reading I'd fit right in with some of their projects(Operation Stargate anyone?). If that's the case I guess this is my black-op resume cover letter.

True, but you have to admit it was kind of funny
Would it have been better if I would have used the "Nigerian Prince" one instead?

Well, more power to ya. I wouldn't want to end up dead. I'm incredibly paranoid, and would be afraid of being tracked. Or bugged. Or surveiled. You get the picture....

I trust that if they do call back, and you do anwser, you'll let us know what if was about??? Before they start tracking you, that is.

Yeah man, if I was actually a "paranoid" type(I am vigilent by nature but not paranoid), I would have been going crazy when I saw the "phone company" up on the lines working at 2:30 in the morning down the street from me. We're serviced by AT&T here and it wasn't them and they where using the large vehicles too. They where scanning the area around them (not up on the pole) with flashlights first, when one worker finally noticed me down the street he seemed startled but played it off. They where there for maybe 15-20 minutes and moved on.

I would have been crapping bricks. I've never seen a phone company out at 2:30 in the a.m. I'd have been sitting in front of the window in my underwear, peering through the mini-blinds with shotgun in hand. Anyone out in a work van after 10.00 pm is a bit suspicious.

I think I'm gona go have a look-see at my phone poles, make sure there ain't nobody out there....

lol dude calm down man. I would imagine the most logical method "they" would gather intelligence that is both efficient and effective, it wouldn't involve someone monitoring everything all the time, it would just kind of sit there until they needed it. Such as when the police get a call about a half naked man with a flash light and shotgun watching the telephone polls...
Then of course there is the pro-active options, which we have seen has been used for both good and bad really...I just naively hope for more good then bad, call me crazy


Oh btw, there are plenty of people who work after 10pm that have no intrigue at all in their lives who provide goods & services and that's it. Just thought I'd add that, it's just not healthy to be so paranoid of everyone

lol I told you I was paranoid. Ya can't trust anyone these days.

I live in the country. The only people I really see after 10 is the paper guy at about 2ish. Other than him, I see maybe 5 cars, most of them being neighbors or folk I know. That probably helps to explain my dislike or distrust of people....

It's funny that a possible link to LHM was mentioned. I live in Palm Beach County, and we have one of their facilities nearby. I work in the restaurant industry and I talk to one of their employees on a daily basis for catering purposes. I have been there multiple times and everything seems pretty straightforward, it appears that they work on torpedo and missile technology at this location but who knows. I always have to get checked in by a guard when I get there and when I leave. Next time she calls to place an order maybe I'll have the guts to ask her about this.... I dunno.

Several years ago this used to happen to me all the time. They have the ability to type in a sub title instead of a caller name with the zeros. I do not know who it was, but, I do know that it is high tech and they can zap electronic pulses through the phone. They also have a way of calling you and making it seem like you called them and the message on my answer machine says "if you'd like to make a call....". There are still times when out of 40 calls received, I only know 4 of the people calling. When this happens, I turn off the answer machine and just let the darn thing ring. I think it comes from a satellite or some computerized program.

Several years ago when it was really bad, I reported it and the phone company started keeping a trace log. There is a *number you can dial right after the call that will initiate the trace. I added "Privacy Director", at that time and still have it, so without an I.D. it will not ring through unless I authorize it.

Also, once I let my neighbor use my phone and my call waiting has not worked properly after. It is as if the line is open. This is different than the call with the zeros.

I got a call several months ago with my area code followed by zeros. 405-000-0000. I called information and asked where the number was. They didn't know. (They never know anything I ask them about. Why do they call themselves "information"?) Anyway, I called the phone company to ask them who that number belonged to. The operator had to get a supervisor but I was told that it had to do with running operational tests on the line. Sounds like a crock to me but that's what the phone company said that number meant.

Perhaps I need to breakdown my post more. With the technology available these days it is trivial to call someone and make it appear as though your someone else. I could call you and make it appear as though it says:

Jesus H Christ
(666)000-0000

There's nothing mystical about this and for that matter not a conspiracy slant. You cannot interpret what caller ID states as truth these days. It's simply modern technology being used for other purposes.

I would advice not calling the number back.

A scam here in the UK is to call people on their mobiles via such numbers and hang up quickly.

The mobile user will then call the number left on missed call and find some sort of inane recording.

The catch is that the line is a premium rate number billed at something ridiculous like £75/min.

Makes sense, but I was the only one at home and we only have one phone. I guess that lines could've been crossed between houses but that'd be a major screw up for the phone company. Regardless, I was still pretty freaked out!

I get calls every now and then like that but my display says Orlando Florida. Its just some telemarketing scheme.

octotom

I used to do telephone work and believe me its not hard to tap peoples lines. As a matter of fact where i am from the telephone companies have a high turnover rate for technicians due to huge paycuts and benefit losses over the last couple years. Anyone with a drivers license can work as a telephone tech and the screening process doesnt keep the idiots out the the job. Basically what i am saying is that there are literally thousands of people out there who have the ability to tap hundreds of lines for whatever reason they wish who arent currently employed with a telephone company.

Precisely. The phone companies will let you change your display info to pretty much whatever you want it to show. They do this to keep your business away from the competition. Sometimes it may cost a little more but it is possible. And with voip you get to choose your own phone number also don't forget that its really not hard to get a phone now under an assumed name.

I checked this website called 800notes.com and looked some comments posted regarding this phone number. Apparently it's different companies calling using the same number. If you'd like, look at some of the comments from people that have picked up the phone call from 202-000-000. (800notes.com...)
