Received a call...I have T-Mobile and an older phone. I didn't answer the phone, but I did some research. It's probably someone using Skype or another program to create a fictional number/caller ID from an international location.

Dude, you make me want to choke a person. Your "do nothing, bury your head" answer is not good enough for the people. If there is a flaw or a weakness in the system we should fix it so that it can not be exploited. The answer is to fight back. How I'm not sure, but I do know we should take action. We do not accept this, we will not tolerate this and if it is off shore, maybe we need to find out the origin and start another god damn war there! Turn them all into over worked tax paying slaves. Then they won't have time to sit around wasting every ones day with this silly shit!

You guys are seriously under the wrong impression. Look at the phone number, 208, 209, 6789. That is the most unrealistic phone number ever. This is most likely to be an offshore scammer using a fake caller ID number and some untraceable internet phone service like Skype. Complain to the FCC or the BBB? How? The phone number is FAKE! And 99% chance they are some overseas scammers which cannot be investigated by anyone in the US. You'll just have to learn to ignore it as with all the other overseas scammer (LLM Services comes to mind) which us fake US phone numbers and try to trick you into revealing personal info using cons like you are owed a tax refund or cheap home financing. Again, the number is not real and the caller is almost certainly not in the US using a spoofed caller ID number.

Idiots, it's not an Idaho number, that's just as many digits show up on your phone. It's an out of country number.

This automated caller is not legal. Please report to the FCC. Go to the FCC web page and look up the 1088G-R. It's a pdf file, fill it out and send it in.

"The FCC prohibits the use of automatic telephone dialing systems or prerecorded messages to call
such wireless communications devices unless the call is made for emergency purposes or with the
called party

Just got a call from this number, I didn't answer. I live in Denver. When I called back it said to try calling again, number disconnected. I work in telecom and that recording is not a true recording. It sounds like someone's voicemail that they created by recording that message.

If you try to call this number it is disconnected. I don't know what these companies get out of making hang-up phone calls, a lot more of them seem to be doing it lately. A computer probably makes them to get info that the line is working but avoid getting caught for violating the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY law. They are obviously up to something though so I suggest everyone make a complaint to the National DO NOT CALL registry.
