Where is area code 390? Someone whose caller ID data says 390-599-9148, name "LRG", is apparently violating the Do-Not-Call Act. We got a call from a machine that said "press 1 to speak to an agent" and did not connect us to anyone when we pressed 1. Googling the number, I see that others have received similar calls, sometimes very persistently.***** Moderator's Note *****
I have, reluctantly, added caller id to my phone service, since my eighteen-year-old is juggling three or four girlfriends, all of whom call every fifteen minutes wanting to know where he is right now.
Yesterday, I tried to call an unfamiliar number that showed on my CID, but I received a recording saying that the caller id is fraudulent. As with any other innovation, there's always someone willing to break the rules to get an edge over the competition: what surprised me, however, is that it's gotten so bad that my IEC had to trap the number.
