How many "agents" are on ATS?
Enough to monitor and report any real threats or issues.
As for so called "disinfo agents", the government could care less. Any views or opinions expressed by such agents would be personal unless someone is gardening for HUMINT and building rapport with a potential source.
Agents are simply tools. They can be anyone that is recruited by a case officer. Any useful idiot can be an agent.

Caution, 123-456-7890 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain, but they failed... you can still file a complaint here to fight back against unethical telemarketers.
seems comparable to what happened to me.
I got two calls yesterday from (123) 456-7890--one at home and one on my work cell, which made me think I might actually know the person. I didn't answer and there was no message at either place. Looks like it was a fluke that they hit me on both phones (?)

Do you know anyone who goes in those prank call chat rooms?
Are your number's new?Are you in the phone book?
I was going to say it could be a telemarketer using VOIP to get around the do not call lists.
But they wouldn't waste there time calling at 3am.
If you were under surveillance, they would not call you.
That's a fact.

hmmm, thats weird.
Do you usually get calls in the early hours of the morning or was it a one in a million chance?
If that was me I'd be starting to worry.

The "Do Not Call List" can be circumvented by VOIP if I am not mistaken.. Especially as there is no real way to "Track" where the calls originate from.
I have been making Skype calls for a long while now, but I always alert whom I am calling to let them know about the number issue.
Well that and I don't all anyone at 3am
What worries me is the call to your home and then directly to your cell. That makes is less of a "Random" call and more personal
