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!
