This number called me 3 times. I am 17, I am home alone a lot. Today my parents are out and so is my sister. Since they've left, the only calls on the house phone have been from Unknown Numbers. I got 5 calls in all. They've never called before, and have only called when I'm alone. Not ever on my cell phone, but on my family's house phone. Anyways, I am a paranoid person, so being as paraniod as I am, I didn't answer any of the calls I just let them go straight to voicemail. They have never once left a voicemail when they've called, so I'm thinking if they keep calling but don't leave a voicemail that their just a sick moron(s) trying to scare me or prank call me or something... and if your a prank caller, or trying to scare somebody, obviously your gonna keep calling them, but don't leave them a voicemail, cuz that could be reported, obviously. My friend has gotten various calls from this number while home alone too. 3 of these calls were from the phone number 920-920-2000. They called once at 5, once again at 5:30 and lastly around 7:40. The other 2 numbers just show up as 1 and 000-000-000. Anyways, I've read this comment saying heard typing in the background... then they hung up. So is this some kind of sick moron prank calling people or something? Seriously. I'm annoyed. What the fuck is wrong with people in society now days? Seriously, get a life and stop calling people!
Area codes-Scam phone calls
IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT AREA CODE. DON'T EVER DIAL AREA CODE 809,284 AND 876
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION PROVIDED TO US BY AT&T.DON'T EVER DIAL AREA CODE 809. They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a family member who has been ill, died, or to let you know you have won a prize, etc. In each case, you are told to call an 809 number. Since there are so many new area codes, people unknowingly return these calls.If you call from the US, you will be charged $2425 per-minute.
Or, you'll get a long message. They will try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges. Unfortunately, when you get your phone bill, you'll often be charged more than $24,100.00.
WHY IT WORKS:
The 809 area code is located in the British Virgin Islands (The Bahamas).
The charges afterwards can become a real nightmare. That's because you did actually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved and will most likely tell you that they are simply pr oviding the billing for the foreign company. You'll end up dealing with a foreign company that argues they have done nothing wrong.

(I confirmed it to be real, they say it is uncommon but has been going around since 2000. Be careful when you get messages to call back and you do not know the number-look at your caller ID before answering)
Stay Tuned! I might have more info regarding this!
