Like the thread said, but it was a number from nabraska (402)779-7710. It was an automated message that said "the fbi has issued that there have been
break-ins in your area every 15 seconds and would like to know if you would like a sign in your yard saying you have security." I hung up but was
wondering if anyone else got a weird call like that as well? Also I live in Raleigh, NC.
I realize that this probably belongs in another forum but I am not sure which one.
Never heard of anything like that but if that happened to me I'd be calling the fbi office and letting them know how uncool (to be nice) that is if
you get my drift. Of course that might lead to you getting a black hood pulled over your face and being moved to a "secure" location. You probably
need the protection anyways right? (Cough sarcasm)
Well I typed in the number in google search and it seems like the calls have started to go around the US starting october 21st. Apparently if you
listen long enough it says to press 9 to be taken off the calling list. Source
It's a security company trying to get you to buy an alarm system. No wonder they keep calling...people think there is something legit because they
mention the FBI...they are probably rolling in the sales with all the maroons that exist.

Then set it up so this number gets forwarded to the FBI office :-)
Or look up the company's owner and find a number and call forward to him.
Also just like signing people up for spam on porn sites go to mortgage/real estate/time share/cruise websites and put their phone number in as
interested for either info.
Then hour can DOS their phones, and if they have a 1-800 number call it and set phone in counter and let it stay open if it's an automated 800
number. The reason is 1 800 numbers work exactly like a collect call. The longer you are on the lime with a 800 number the more they pay which is
reason call centers get you off the line quickly and work from scripts
Someone phone DOS'ing for payback.Set their number up with NAMBLA requesting further info.
The companys name might be F.B.I. and the prey upon the majority of people whose absolute acceptance of anything vaguely resembling authority makes
their job easy for them.
This is a very old con. Want to dig deeper? Look into police associations and how they raise money through third parties.
Personally, I wouldn't even touch it (publicly). I don't mind pointing you in the right direction as it's not a secret, and the official story can be
used as rebuttal to any insinuation (such as my own) but if you look, you will find.
