UPDATE: Calls From a Stranger

Reader Ben reports that 1) he received another strange Spanish phone spam scam call, this time from 401-200-9876 and 2) he still doesn’t speak Spanish.

To date, we’ve seen reports of Spanish calls trying to finangle people’s social security info, in Spanish, coming from these phone numbers: 401-200-9876, 305-503-8068, 305-503-8066, 301-392-8219, 661-375-3050, 954-678-8026, 678-310-5678, 786-718-9058, 480-929-4842, 785-718-9058, 786-879-6669, 305-371-7266, 408-822-1645, 305-256-4287, and 978-228-0011.

What a nuisance. If anyone ever grows the cojones to report this to the cops, someone outta tie these Frito Banditos up in a pinata. After all the treats are removed from their bellies, we can have a Mexican hat dance party. Then the pummeled giblets can be laid to dry in the sun with the fibers from the rope pressed in. The resultant blanket will make for a cozy siesta sheet.

Ole!

    Come on, Ben. Get with it and learn Spanish. Embrace change and accept the coming Latin wave.

    Nice post there. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you wrote with a heavy dose of “irony” or humor, but it didn’t come through all the stereotypical bits you threw together. Maybe you should try that one again.

    I got one from 978 228 0011. Can’t tell what it said because my poor spanish was no match for the garbled recording. That and I was at Jazzfest at the time…

    re- 408-822-1645
    have received threatening phone call from this number- voice was a computer generated dialogue
    - probably made throught internet or cell phone- caller knew personal information and made threats- have reported this number to police and several agencies – I encourage anyone else to report also- it is a go between Number used to scam and make anonymous threatening and/or prank calls
