I do not recall what the caller ID said. But, it was a series of letters. (I am not sure if it was "ITL" or not.) In any case, the call came in the other night, and consisted of beeps.

If the telephone bothers you I suggest that you get an extension cord with two jacks at one end. Plug your telephone phone cord into one of the jacks. At night remove the plug from the jack. This should disconnect your phone. Just remember to reconnect when you want to receive calls. Since my telephone jack is behind furniture I use this method so I would not have to constantly move things about.

I google ITL and there are many companies with this name. My caller id indicated they called me at 12:36 AM today. I keep my phone out of access to my sleeping quarters. Business hours are from 8 AM to 9 PM. So there is reason to believe that this is a telephone spoof. No telemarketer will call at this hour.

Yeah, called us last night at 12:31am ~ woke us up, very annoying! My husband drifted blissfully back to sleep but I couldn't go back to sleep and wondered who the heck would be calling us from WA?! After reading through the various comments here, I am most skeptical of Jody who says she works at ITL... Is an individual employee really allowed to speak publicly on the company's behalf? I wouldn't think so. Either that or perhaps Jody is now in trouble (I hope not, especially if she was just trying to help!). My guess is there is a disgruntled ITL employee who knows just a little bit too much about how to pre-programs the company's phone system to randomly call people, thereby bringing on a scourge of complaints! If this is the case, the disgruntled employee better look out for Karma -- it bites back and it bites hard! Here's to a restful night's sleep tonight for us all! Martha.

Hello, my name is Jody and I work at International Telcom LTD (ITL). We are a local exchange telephone company just like Qwest. I have received numerous complaints about bothersome calls that are coming from specific caller IDs - especially 206-337-0577, 206-888-1934 and 206-888-8920. These numbers that appear on the caller ID do in fact belong to my company, however these calls did not actually come from those numbers nor have they gone through our network in any way. It appears that the person making these calls is spoofing/faking their caller ID to appear as these numbers, but the calls are actually coming from somewhere else. This needs to stop. Not only is this dragging my company's name through the mud, but I am also receiving numerous threats from angry people who have been woken up in the middle of the night. Please be assured that I am doing everything in my power to stop this from continuing, and urge you to please file a complaint with your local telephone company as they should be able to track down the actual number that these calls came from (not just the fake caller ID that is being sent). I want you to know that I am very sorry for the bother that this very irritating scam has caused. Please help me to get this to stop by contacting your local telephone company.

They have no idea how it called hundreds of people? Do their phones have a life of their own? Someone there must've set up an automated program or something.

I spoke to a representative from the company. They were very apologetic, they admitted that the # belonged to them but have no idea how it ever dialed out. They are checking for internal tampering and have fielded numerous complaints about the call.

I got the same call at 12:30 and it too was from that number and when I picked it up, it was that annoying fax number..I think it should be reported to the phone company because it woke me up and I couldn't get back to sleep.

sorry, that should say "Click the circle for Abandoned Calls before submitting the form."

A subcategory of Abandoned Calls is War Dialing, and that's what this appears to be.

"War dialing" (automated dialing to determine whether a telephone line can receive faxes; characterized by automated tones)

OK, the person from the FCC never called back, so I called them again. They told me they can't do anything unless I fill out their form again, blah blah.

The correct form to fill out is Form 1088.

before submitted, click the circle for Abandoned calls.

I called the FCC complaints department and left my name and number earlier in the day, but they have not returned my call. I will be vigorously hounding this issue until something happens. This is not right.

I got a call showing ITL from this number at about 11:31 PM Eastern time. I looked it up and found it's a telecommunications company in Seattle. I hope they can be reported.

I would like to tar and feather the bastards.

I received a phone call from this telephone number at 11:56 pm ET on 2/10/2008. I answered and it just beeps. Says it's ITL, but when I look up area code 206, it is supposed to be Washington state.
