Recently, I've had an unknown (and foreign) number ringing my mobile, and I normally ignored it. When I do answer I get some foreign person talking to me (though, since it's usually at 4 in the morning I'm too tired to answer properly).

So today I texted them asking who they were, and why they were ringing me. I got a text back saying we could be friends, and I should call them back. So I replied asking how they got my number, and they said-

In nigeria we believe in team. we allso believe in Good.
Good have show me ur number long ago but i make a mistake by puting +2 in the please of +4 so i call mr Mani in COTE'D'VOIRE


NOTE-I reckon 'Good' is meant to be 'God' and 'please' should be 'place'.

I don't want to be harsh by bullying him...
So, what should I do?

Do not text them back and ignore such calls?

This is the only real option.

On a serious note, it's probably a scam. Ask him if he's a prince.

Oh no

ask them for noodz


Might actually..

But, I have no idea how they got my number..
I used to go to a youth club when I was younger, and some of the people from that went to Nigeria recently, so I am thinking it's just them having a joke.. which would be annoying.

But the calls are annoying at 4am in the morning.. repeatedly.

It seems he/she/it made a mistake and phoned you by accident and has now taken it to be an act of god to start a friendship between you two.

This is what my grandad did long ago when my gran was getting wierd calls: he answered one night and waited till the caller was getting right into it and then blew a whistle as loud as he could down the phone, presumably half deafening the ****er on the other end.

He didn't call back after that, so give it a try TS.

So what if it's actually God trying to eat me and if I don't make friends with him/her.. who's probably someone like Jesus.. I'll die?

It sounds like the beginning of a Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie.

Except Meg Ryan would have to be in drag and Tom Hanks would have to black up.

tell him to earn your friendship, he must send you 100 virgins from his country, then you'll consider his offer of friendship.

but seriously, i think you can call your network provider and ask them to block certain numbers from calling/texting you if you can't already do it from your phone.

Probably because last time you visited Nigeria you let a local take a picture of you with your friend. Oh and he's not actually having a party. Now the next step is very important.......

Don't block him. I like this guy. Try to maintain his friendship. Much more fun than simply blocking him. :/
#23
It must the lost prince who now has recieved a friend from God, who can aid his escape from Nigeria. If he ask for your bank details, by all means give it to him right away. You will be hugely reward, since he is a prince and all.

If he by some freak accident don't turn out to be a prince, post his number here in the pit, so the pit can spam from several different time zones.

Actually, do this. Post the number in the pit. And say that you've announced his number to several other princes of other states. Together, you shall unite in power and riches and dominate the world.

I could tell him I'm gay.. that'd annoy him?

Butt.. he is costing me a fortune.. I'll ask him to ring again later tonight.. see want he wants.. then I'll blow the whistle..

You can do online phone tracing for this stuff. It usually gives you a general idea of where it's coming from. If you want more precise information on the caller you usually have to subscribe. Or you can hire a private investigator but that can be abit costly.

I learnt all this when I got a ton of phone calls on my cell from completely random numbers. So I looked them up. Found they were all from Ottawa (my area) and I would call them back on a payphone, most of them didn't answer one of them did; it was the Moroccan embassy.

Now the Moroccan embassy was maybe just random. But the others ones I found out that my friends at work had been getting calls from similar numbers. And we kindof came to the conclusion that it was my boss calling us from different numbers so we would pick up. And it's really the type of thing that we wouldn't put past him. And we've recently seen him asking people for their cellphones ''for a quick call'' almost everytime someone calls in sick.

So yeah. The whole phone numbers stuff, you'd be surprised what you can find out about a person with such minimal information. Send me a message if you need any help or anything. I've had many encounters like this.
#37
But yeah, probably just some random accidental caller not knowing what he's doing. Or some guy trying to scam you. That was my first guess as soon as I saw Nigeria.

Well, the number began with +234.. and to begin with I assumed it was +23 (equivalent to +44 here in the UK) which was the calling code, but the number was 1 digit too long, but since I knew the caller was from Nigeria, I found out that the calling code was +234.. so now how am I supposed to trace this to find where the call was made? And is it legal?


TS, this is what's going to happen next. You better deal with this pronto.




EDIT: 234 is also the area code for somewhere in Ohio? But, I'm guessing it's a mobile, since they texted back (though some landlines can text..)
But, I still have no connection with Ohio, so I have no idea..

Why would some random person in Nigeria continuously call an English mobile number.. and then claim they were given it by God?
