.this phone number just popped up on my googled account. I'm sure it's another scammer.
Block this call. It’s a scam, they pretend to be the google 2 step verification, but I did not trigger it. I received a text and call. Block both numbers, possibly redo your gmail password.

This number has stolen my Gmail and it will not let go of my email asking to pay $300 to protect the line from hacking-They are the hacking
This is a legitimate call from Google. If you try to login to your Google account from a new or unrecognized device, you are prompted to receive a call with a verification code. Once the code is received you enter into the Google logon screen to access your Google account. If you didn't try to login to Google but have received this call, perhaps someone tried to hack into your account which is why you received the call

This is an automated call supposedly from Google providing you a 6 digit numeric code because your phone number is listed as the contact because Google was specified to do so as a second security measure for any login attempt to your Google account (or Gmail). If you this doesn’t sound right to you then you should verify all the settings in your account and make sure it is secure. When I went into my account and deleted this security step, the calls stopped.

there were 20 consecutive calls from this number immediately one after the other on mobile phone. Deleted all as that was bizarre. Besides I know no one in the 202 area code.

Exact dates are very important .You were born on an exact date. The "Church Age" started on Pentecost Sunday May 22,33AD. May 21,1988 was the end of the "Church Age". God's Word contains many important dates and numbers.
May 21,2011 was the beginning of Judgement Day. Read Revelation 22:11, Genesis 7:11-16. The flood began on the seventeenth day of the second month of the year 4990 BC. If you love Jesus and want to hear current, sincere Bible teaching

This number called twice and left a message with a numerical verification code. Nothing else was said. Just added them to my ignore/ delete pile.

When this number called me 4/2/19 I expected it because youtube asked me to verify my my identity for access to advanced features. I read they would call almost instantly and give me a 5-digit number to then enter it in my youtube account, and they did. ID said Washington DC. No foreign anything, and the call was brief. That was my experience.
I first got a text from a five digit number that looked like a google password identification number but it looked like it was in Chinese. Then I got a call from this number saying it was from Washington, DC, and it read me a very long voicemail message also in Chinese (or Japanese or some kind of Asian language), and then it disconnected.

I had forgotten my gmail password and this is the message I got when I clicked "forgot password" on the website. They gave me a security code to change my password.

CALLED ID SAID WASHINGTON - I BLOCKED IT AND DELETED IT... MUST BE A SCAM - VIRUS??? WHO KNOWS
Why hasn't the FBI or FCC taken any steps to stop a "scammer"? The complaints go back years.
Would that be the same FBI I brought enough evidence to convict 10 people who told me they would do nothing, deny I had been there? Then came the NSA.

Try the top part, cut off...My girlfriend in the Philippines with a number known to NO ONE, got a call at the exact moment I texted her. It was a message for me.
The number is used by the NSA.

My girlfriend in the Philippines who has ZERO contact anywhere(I am the only one to know her number)got a call exactly as I was texting her.
The number is the NSA.
I am the only person, EVER, to catch the NSA in an active wiretap through metadata evidence.
Why am I a target without being a terrorist or a criminal? My Japanese ex-wife was the daughter of the recently retired President of the Nikkei, the Tokyo Stock Exchange. I had caught her wiretapping me to steal patent information while working for the only Japanese patent lawyer in my City of Philadelphia.

my son updated his phone number on google, when you call the number back it says verify google authentication, strange they would call back at 2:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. when we did the update at 8 p.m.

Just like "Wisconsin" says, HUGE, HUGE SCAM. Never enter a code for someone who texts you with this BS.
Voicemail and text from this number in regard to my google account. Very suspicious. Not real recording.
Texted me in Mesa, AZ.,today about a CL ad and asked to call me. Then texted me to answer and put in a 2 digit code. This is the 2nd time in 2-3 days. The first one kept texting "enter the code now" until I blocked it. This one kept calling and I kept denying. Now I will block it. What the heck is it? Just another thing like the phone service for the disabled that people use to scam with fake certified checks?
I got a call from this number minutes after I published a craigslist ad. First a text message from a a legit-looking number that says "I wanna buy bla bla, can i call now" and then says "press XX i'm calling now" and then this number calls. I didn't answer and said sorry I don't trust it. Messages stopped. I'm in Seattle, WA
Called within minutes of posting craig's list ad. Tried to get me to take their call and punch in a code to accept the call. Which I didn't do, of course. I messaged them that I reported them and blocked the number.
Called me 8 in the morning here in maine About 6 didget pin number
That number texts you with a verification code for YouTube accounts. I suppose Google uses it for a number of their projects.

I got a call from (202)455-8888 at 6:18 AM on March 22, 2018. It left a voice mail message--in Russian. It could have been reading off a series of numbers, I don't know; the only thing I recognized was the Russian word for "goodbye." Should I be expecting a call from Robert Mueller?
This is a Google Voice number trying to verify you wanted a new google number using your cell phone number to confirm. What's happening, when coupled with craigslist is that they are borrowing you cell phone number to verify "their" new google voice number so they can robo call other people. You may or may not have to take action to get your cell phone number back.
I received a text from number 512-355-6129
about an item I had just posted on Craigslist. They then asked if they could call me. The call came from (202) 455-8888 asking me to put in a 2-digit code to connect. If you text text with one number, why call me through a voice relay?
California Mar 31st, 2018
Correction to post I just made: Number should read 202-455-8888.
I had to (legitimately) re-verify to Google that one of my Google Voice forwarding numbers is still mine. The verification code they sent came from 2020-455-8888
. So this is legitimate, although I supposed it's possible -- though highly unlikely -- someone would try to spoof the number for some kind of scams out there. Sure there are tons of scams, but people seem to jump to the conclusion that everything is a conspiracy, a Trump, Trump Media (Fox "News"), and the Facebook manipulators would want you to believe.
It's a Google verification phone number. It's used to send an audible 6-dit verification code. This verification process typically occurs whenever one accesses a long-disused gmail account.

I just left the message below about the code and not knowing what it was for. I've been trying to change the password on a google app on my mobile phone, and I was telling it to text me the number. Somehow they thought wanted it called, and that's what the call was for. Very strange. So that answers my question. Thanks anyway. :-)

I just had a call about 202-455-8888. I know 202 is the Washington, DC area code. The message that was left said "Your code is: ---" and gave me 3 numbers, then hung up. Does ANYBODY have an idea what this is and how to stop it?

Rcvd numerous texts with google codes and also a missed call from this no. I thought I was receiving a text from google and responded by updating my “google” info for one of my emails. Did I set myself up?
Fuck,(202) 455-8888 did call me today, I do some research about it and based on what I've read it has something to do with selling stuff online and they are some sort of scammers but the weird thing is that I'm not selling anything..

Received call from (202) 455-8888 saying that they were Google, giving me a code, so I hung up. Immediately received text from Ohio number (sorry I deleted that but it was a 402 area code with Google verification code. Found this video which is helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_IFCzd42sQ
Received 3 calls from 202-455-8888, 1 call from 718-416-6383

and 22000. All were regarding same google verification number. All happened over a few minute period on the morning of Feb 21, 2018. I believe it is a scam to get account/password info.

Today is February 20th 2018 I saw several complaints about this phone number. I to wonder why this has not been shut down after several years of complaints. But I had a Craigslist posting for an appliance and they texted me from another number wanting to know if they could call me they needed it urgently. Then they started to text me to hit the verification code and kept calling and kept calling. I never hit the verification code because I know better about these scams but from what I see they could have acquired my phone number for other ill-mannered uses. Be forewarned thank God I didn't and I blocked that number
Outgoing number for Google Voice verification. If Google called this number, it's because somebody is trying to verify your number is attached to forwarding for a Google Voice number.

Just got a call from this number. Somehow they got hold of a prepaid emergency phone number that I have given to NO ONE but it is connected to mu dang GOOGLE account! I think there is NO privacy with anything connected go a GOOGLE account. The message left was some crap about a free 2-day something. Didn't even listen! Just furious with GOOGLE not protecting privacy!!
Received message they were interested in pet I was selling. Said they would call and enter 2 digit code. Immediately looked it up and saw warnings online. Phone rings and I hung up. I received a message and said they were trying to call and to enter 2 digit code. Refused to answer the next 3 phone calls. So, I responded to the message with a Screenshot of this scam. Wrote to please call from their OWN phone number if they were SERIOUSLY INTERESTED, i did not accept scams. Blocked this Washington number and have not received anything after. Do not ever do anything out of the ordinary!

somebody call me last night and idk who
This is a legitimate number that Google uses for verification codes on G-mail.
Just received voicemail stating a code from 202-455-8888. After reading all these posts, I will not be calling back. My only question is: If this number has been used for the last 4 years or so for scam/phishing attempts, Why isn't the FTC or anyone shutting it down??
Who is this?

202-455-8888 seems to be a legitimate number that Google Voice uses for verification (and in my limited experience is initiated by my on-line action), but scammers could be faking the caller id. How can you tell which is which? For one thing, I wouldn't expect Google Voice to ask for a credit card number.
GOOGLE VOICE SCAME TO STEAL YOUR NUMBER AND SCAM OTHER PEOPLE USING YOUR NUMBER SO YOU GET ARRESTED INSTEAD OF THEM. CLEVER?
Received call from 402-281-3514,told me to put a code in when they called which was
Washington DC. Had listed something on Craigslist. They called 4 times
Wanted me to enter the 2 digit code, I did not do that. Called 3 more times, just declined
the call. Trouble written all over these numbers!!!! Scam!
This # is on my phone over a dozen times. I donor answer and I blocked it now. I did not have a voice mail set up with google or anyone else. This has to be a scammer. I call this stuff harrassement. Ever try to call them back ? You can't.

One of several Google Accounts Verification phone numbers. Ignore if you did not activate a new product, or if you did not make changes to your google account.
Received an automated call from Google to validate changes I made to my Google Voice account. Google has offices in many locations besides California, including Austin and New York, so why not DC? For those who receive calls but don't have or haven't made changes to a Google account, odds are someone else has made a typo when entering the phone number for verification.
EVERYONE KNOWS GOOGLE IS in Mt View, California. I seriously doubt that THEY are going to call to confirm THIER SECURITY PROGRAM! C'Mon think about it!
