Default Calls with Caller ID showing a 9 digit number 408694335

A bunch of people have been receiving calls from 408694335 which is not
a valid U.S. number. When I answer there is no one there. At first it
looks like a valid number, until you count the digits.

Anyone have any idea what this is about? Looks like someone is spoofing
the caller ID which is illegal if they have an "intent to defraud, cause
harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value."

Chances are it's a sales call from a call center with ANI spooking
capability.

I don't answer any calls that don't have a name attached to the caller
ID or do not leave a message when screening.

So, assuming you are talking about on a cell phone, and verizon doesn't pass
on names with the caller ID, only people in your phone book

No, actually I'm talking about my non-Verizon home cordless phone. I do
have a Verizon cell phone, but very few people have my cell number and I
recognize their phone numbers.

I have received a few 9-digit phone calls recently. Enough of which that
I have blocked all 9-digit caller IDs.

So many junk calls these days. A landline without a blocking feature is
unusable.

The last few weeks I have been getting 9 digit numbered phone calls from the same area code in which I live (Texas). It started out once a day now it has increased to 3 X per day,each number is different. Getting really aggravating and spooky at the same time. I removed all references of any money cards off my c-phone just in case it has anything to do with stealing money I don't have. Anyone have any suggestions?
