Mystery outgoing calls

Post by swly » Thu Jun 14, 2012 3:43 pm

About a week ago I noticed on my call log that there were 3 or 4 - 800 phone numbers that were repeatedly being called - each for 16 to 20 seconds. When I call the numbers I get a fax type response. I have called my security company and they assure me that they are not causing the calls ( I do see the weekly check-in call in the log). I have disconnected the cable (satellite) connection and still the calls are going out - each about a dozen times a day and at the exact time each day for each phone number called.

I cannot think of any other connection that could be making the calls. They go on day and night, whether or not we are home or away on vacation.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Have you googled the 800 number to see who it might be? If you disconnected phone cord from your dish receivers....not sure what else it could be other than alarm central.
