This one sonunds like it could be fun. Comments? The phone number is
probably one of those foreign 900 numbers where you are charged $200
for the call and Verizon says "Hey, we HAVE to charge you for the call
even though it was fraud <shrug>. Soooorrrreeee." Are there any other
angles that this could be working?
