UPDATE: Calls From a Stranger, 954-678-8026

The Consumerist wanted to open its doors as a P.I, get all private investigation styles, baby.

We were gonna look up 954-678-8026, whose been leaving unsolicited marketing pitches in Spanish on people’s phones, most likely using an auto-dialer, and shut them down.

As of 7:15 pm EST, calling that number get a disconnected message. The phone-spammers have already been stopped. Rats, we were just about to dust off the ol’ Dick Tracy trench coat and do some sleuthing.

However, we bet they’re going to strike again. Be on the watch and let us know. We’d hate for all these venetian blinds and smoky haze we just bought to go to waste.
