Re: 2002220000 Given as Caller ID

There is a VOIP service allowing individuals to make free voice over
ip calls worldwide. That id showed up on my cell phone too. Ask your
friends if they are calling you using an internet phone!

Hope this helps,


[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I've had some interesting phone calls
lately where the caller ID was given as 'Unknown 119' and 'Unknown 103'.
They were overseas calls from Nigeria looking for Lisa when she was
not here one day. Playing along with them, I found out they were doing
the Nigerian scam. They may have not been in Nigeria, but they certainly
did not speak English as I know it. The calls came in on my Vonage
VOIP line (which terminates on the PBX but goes through caller ID first.)
