Yeah, right. I just hung up, then googled for it. All I could find was about some scam that only affects places that need to dial nine to get an outside line.

Funny how this happened on the day I finally wrote and mailed the letter to cancel the service. Despite having been on the no-call list for about two years, I still get more telemarketer calls than anything else.
