Maybe I am being paranoid here, but having just finished a long road trip and frankly, sticking my nose in government business getting a missed call from Washington DC has me wondering what the source of the call is.

I have been resting/recovering from that trip, so honestly I haven't payed any attention to my cell phone until a short time ago, when I found a missed call from yesterday...

I tried several times to return that call and can't get through, it is impossible.. After trying to find the source on the internet the most I could get is that possibly came from a cell phone in DC?

Anyone know of a good way to find out exactly where a call like this came from?

Maybe it means nothing and I am being paranoid but after recent events and personal experiences I'd really like to know where this call came from.

Thats probably from one of those poling groups in DC. I got two in the last three days wanting to ask my opinion on the health care debate and the idea of bailing out GM & Chrysler again! Mostly robot dialing programs! They only use those numbers for one-two days then change them to prevent problems from crazies that call back and try to tie up the lines.

Seems there's reports of this number being connected with one of those incessant, nagging "this is your last chance to extend you auto's warranty" crapolafests...

Car Warrenty SCAM!!! 202-527-6028 2009-03-06

I personally wouldn't be too concerned as the number is most likely contrived, fake, made-up, whatever.

just another 1-800 DON'T PICKUP in my opinion.

Your edit explains mine!


Funny thing is I did a reverse search of that number and got a DC location and that is what made me wonder what it was.

Case closed!

Yes, that is what it is, an automobile warranty scam which will come into your cell phone with various numbers. There is no set number for this scam, I have received the same call on my cell phone under a variety of different numbers. I have answered everyone of them too, and it is the same old message, "This is the second notice...your warranty is about to expire..."

Yea, my phone too.... I answered it and it was a fund raiser for Ron Pauls Campaign for Liberty --- you know me Mr. Money Bagless - donated $25 bucks for more of the same... I guess....

I got that call. But I just looked on my caller ID and the number is different than the one above. Still a 202 area code.

But I had like someone call me and then ask me to listen to the pre-recorded message. So they probably have more than 1 phone line/caller doing it I'd guess, which would explain the different number.

My call was on 03/03/09 around 9am.

My favorite was getting a call from Washington DC : 202 000 0000

I always check these two sites first when I get interesting calls on the caller id:
