Strange phone number called me

Got a call- which I did not answer- from 313 000 0000 000 !

Yes, that's right! 13 digits.

The Net guesses everything from " Secret NSA wiretapping!" to " Scam perpetrated by the Mormons!"

Has this happened to anyone else?

I didn't know you were a Mormon.

These days you can send any number you like. Spoofing is far too easy.

I got a call last week, normal ten digits but the area code was odd. Googling it said it was Tanzania.

I have a rule that I never answer a call from a country I can't find easily on a map. I mean a regular paper one, not Google.
