is there a way to steal phone numbers?

12 posts in this topic

i just spoke to this guy trying to find someone. well long story short i had the wrong number and rather than confirming the number i dialed so i could remove it he told me he wasn't gonna tell me because he was afraid that i was gonna steal his phone number and charge calls to it. i got quite the headache from him. i have never heard of this... is it possible for someone to "steal" someones phone number and charge calls to it?

Maybe if you cloned it, it was a cellular number you had right? And by the way What The FUCK is up man, long time not talk! ;)

I think the only way to charge calls to another persons land line would be to beige box them and make the calls yourself.

The guy might be thinking that you would try to 3rd-party bill a call to his telephone number, which allows someone to bill a telephone call to any number, as long as the person accepts the charges.

Hack his answering machine and leave a greeting that just says 'yes' ever few seconds over and over... don't know if it works these days but back in the eighties when AT&T had that automated third party stuff it would use voice reconigition to listion for 'yes' and it did work...

anyone know if that still works today?

but to simply not confirm it?? dude is a retard. keep calling.

Just go tap the person that owns the phone on the shoulder, and ask "Can I use your phone?"

Well, with number portability and all. Couldn't a phone carrier "steal" numbers?

No, that would be third-party billing. Slamming would involve changing his/her long distance provider without asking.

Anybody care to elaborate on the possibility of "stealing" a number by porting it illegitimately? I know very little about LNP, so I don't really know if it could be done or not.

And besides, number portability is against my religion. I mean, a person should be able to look at your NPA and exchange, and know where your line is physically located and who serves it. Anything else is just, well, stupid.

EDIT: another tidbit... One local CLEC's signup form includes a blank for "number you wish to port"; and later on, under the "additional options" heading, there's a checkbox marked "don't call Qwest (orders with LNP only)". This may or may not be related to the topic at hand.

I dont know if it would work, but porn sites have a method of billing you by submitting your number and calling a number to confirm. I geuss one could spoof caller id, if caller id was used by the biller to confirm payment.

im not sure about the 3rd party but im using that method for collect call, all u need is a good voice mail that can divert your call after the billing acceptance so you can call the number that you want. :ninja:
