This is one of the phone numbers to a server used by Verizon IP Relay. Relay is a federally mandated system intended to facilitate communication between people who are deaf or hard of hearing and people who are hearing. The system is exploited by teenagers and other immature people to anonymously prank call their friends, enemies, etc. It is also exploited by scammers mostly in W. Africa to contact small business and people who are selling things thru want ads, etc. The scammers try to pass fake checks, money orders, or Western Union payments and get "overpayments". If you are a small business owner or selling something thru want ads, be VERY skeptical! Relay operators work under strict confidentiality. They HONESTLY have no information about the content of the call or who is calling. Please do not get hostile towards the relay operator. You may want to ask for the IP Relay Customer Service number and see what they can do to help you block IP Relay calls. If you do not want a relay call, simply hang up and continue hanging up when you receive them!

I have gotten my cell phone not to long ago and now this number has called me. I did not answer. no voice mail either. I can't believe he or she has bothered others too!When i text him asking who it was i got a landline. Hopefully he or she will bother the wrong hands and get sued or found by the police and put in jail! This is just wrong!

I have no clue who this is. I looked up teh area code to see where it is from and discovered it is the sole area code for Maine. I typed in the phone number only to find sites that revealed others have recieved calls from this number. I did not answer because I did not recognize the number and it was unknown to me. They did not leave a voice mail.

I received a call today advising it was a relay call from a man at the springfield mass police department calling about my son. I hung up the phone as soon as he said that. He never said my name or my son's name. I called the police dept they had no record of the phone call
