Excellent points. Another thing the Jamaica's area code can be used in this country too, as I found out when I got a call on my phone. I thought it was from Jamaica and track them down from an online website about scammers' calls. Found out they were right here in this country of all places. So there are scammers here too, who used area codes from other countries making people think that. Turned out on that particular website about phone scams, there's been tons of complaints about it. Soon as another scam artist or scam artists are sent to prison, another group is around to take over. Such a pain in the neck getting calls, emails and letters from these greedy people who think they can fool everybody. They fooled some but certainly can't fooled people like me, you and posters on here.

Scammers take legitimate phone numbers and use them to disguise their numbers they are calling from.
They call you from out of state or over seas and the number on your caller Id is a local number.

What I like is when my phone rings and I look at my caller Id, and it's my own name and number on it. The bad thing then is, you can't call and report them. I don't know whether to laugh or get mad.

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

A year from now, you'll wish you had started today.
