so i wake up at like 12:45, a little peeved that i didnt sleep too well from 10am-12pm, and turn on the tube to see temple already losing in the first 10 mins. then i remember my phone going crazy, and go to check the number that was calling me. as i go to pick up the phone it starts ringing and i see its an unknown number again, so i answer. no sound. just silence. i hang up and notice that i had 6 missed calls, all from the same number with a slightly different variance everytime.
1(233) 916-5720 x2
01(233) 916-5720 x2
011 (233) 916-5720
i call each number back to see if i could get any kind of answer. each time the operator tells me "your call cannot be completed as dialed. please check the number and try again". WEIRD
so then i do a little google search and find out this has been happening to a lot of people and occasionally has a member on the other end trying to scam you. an entry from someone else:
A man states he is Rev. Frank Smith, he is a minister trying to buy cabinets so he can ship them to his home in south africa. He can barely speak english and hard to understand. I own a cabinet company and he wanted to pick up cabinets from me and he is shipping to orphan's in South Africa. Not sure what orphans need cabinets, I think they would need food more. LOL Weird....When we went to find out what this area code was, it said it was comming from Ghala in Africa. He called 11 times with in 2 hours. But used a cell phone in between the african calls with a 503-949-6296 number from tigard in Oregon. Even
so i tell my girlfriend this and she says she recently heard a news story about this and that it is in fact a scam but they cannot catch the people doing it for some odd reason. so just a warning....
i sure hope those orphans appreciate the cabinets i donated though
