Creepy Phone Messages

I think I may be the target of a phone scam. I've gotten some three or four calls from this one place; the message does not identify any company but asks me to call a 1-800 number about "an important customer matter." The kicker is when it says to use the reference number to follow, but instead of giving a number it beeps back into the beginning of the message with a really crazy "Again, I repeat" or something like that, said in an exasperated teenaged voice that makes all words have three times as many syllables as they should. I can almost see the rolling eyes. Do they think that's businesslike in any way? Even if it was legitimate I wouldn't want to call back. Weird.

Just last week I finally put my cell phone number on the national do not call registry. Out of the blue, my cell phone started ringing 4 or 5 times a day from wierd 800 numbers, sometimes leaving messages but not always. Considering the government is considering releasing cell phone numbers to solicitors, I think you'd be wise to register all your phones.

That's very good advice; the weird thing is, the calls are to my landline, which is on the Do Not Call registry. I do need to remember to put my cell on there.
