    Caller is all zeroes

    I have Airvoice Wireless. Just got a call--no one on the line, not even a recording. The caller number was all zeroes. Is this something sinister, or just a glitch?

    Someone who works for the Federal Government is trying to reach you.

    Usually, the federal government calls have an area code + all zeros, i.e. 212-000-0000.

    I have blocked some Hofo users and so I don't see and won't respond to messages from them.

    When my power company calls me to inform me of the status of an outage, it shows up as all zeroes on my ATT phone.

    I know several that have completely all zero's when their caller ID comes in. They are in the Justice Department. We joke about that they must be secret agents.

    The reason for the all zeros is that number/office does not accept incoming calls. Did you recently request information from any Federal agency?

    Might be spoofed, might also be Skype.
