It might mean nothing. Dillinger, Machine Gun Kelly, The Barkers, and any number of criminals all visited the same bars in Chicago and St. Paul. Even though they all knew the bartender and the criminals running the place they didn't all know each other for months.
If Ruby was a big guy in the underground world, or even just a successful fence, chances are he knew dozens if not hundreds of criminals. He could have been doing a favor for anyone of them. He might not have even known Ray. It could be that somebody said "call this number and ask for Jack..."
edit for missing letters.
