Hehe... interesting, this thread has exploded since I started it 8/28, a few minutes after receiving the call.

A note to everyone: This number, 323-927-1550, is FRAUDULENT and IS NOT the true originating number. The DNC will not help you as the caller is deliberately breaking the law to begin with. These same calls having been coming for the last couple months from someone with a T1/PBX that is inserting fraudulent CID numbers. This time the CO exchange was actually valid... though that was probably a mistake by the spammer. All examples in the past (that I know of) have been NPA-NXX exchanges that are/have never been assigned to any phone company (ie. 123-456-xxxx has never been assigned by NANPA). Examples include:
209-276-5589
231-491-8865
240-861-9988
303-720-1234
323-483-6532
336-646-1234
773-703-7421

The list goes on and on. The message is "you have won a free camera, press 1 to talk with an operator". The operator will immediately hang up on you if you aren't immediately thrilled to participate in their scam. This caller is unlikely to stop until the phone companies and/or feds get off their !*&^$, pull the CO ANI/transfer records, and press charges.... Sorry, you're all screwed, welcome to the club. ;)
