Over the past week, I've received repeated calls from specific numbers which I don't know. The past few days, I received calls from a 718 area code number, which services New York City. Today I called them. They are not located in New York City.
The woman who answered did not identify herself. She would not say who or what I was calling. She did answer a few questions:
Q: Is this an office?
Q: Where are you located?
Q: Jamaica, Queens?
A: Jamaica in the Caribbean.
At this point I hung up.
Here are the phone numbers and the information I was able to find about them:
- (718)785-5522 is a land-line based in New York, NY, serviced by Allegiance Telecom, Inc, which is owned by XO Communications. This number has been calling me since at least February 26.
- (876)498-7629 is based in Kingston, Jamaica. This number has been calling me since at least March 2.
