We don't normally get crank calls on the house phone, however we kept getting calls from someone stating that they needed our Electric bill info "in order to reduce our electricity use". I called National Grid about it, and they said it was a Scam that was effecting personal info for customers in Worcester Ma, and customers in the Boston Area. The next time they called I laughed at him, and informed him about What National Grid said and hung up on his stuttering. So now all of a sudden we get these goofy calls with Caller ID saying "Dir Assist. Ma." And "Health Code 5" -or our name (as if we were calling ourselves). Always with no one on the other end of the phone. Everyone uses a cell phone, the house phone is turning into the gateway to scam central.

Calls while I am working. I do not answer, and they leave no message. This has happened SEVERAL times in the last two weeks. Why does Verizon not SHUT THEM DOWN - DISCONTINUE SERVICE until they stop?

The Number is a Verizon number Cambridge Ma 555 is VERIZON it's "Alledged" that if you recieved it, you have Comcast. So it's what's otherwise called "Marketing Harassment".
