July 2014. On moblie
It turns out to be an autogenerated number from the Capitol that Capitol staff can call out on but noone can call back. This from the Capitol Switchboard. Why on earth anyone from the Capitol/ Congress would not want you to know who called or how to call back, but many government offices are getting strange that way. I was calling members of Congress a couple of weeks ago.
It was likely someone from Congressman Salazar's (Colorado) office.
they hang up on answering machine 2 times in one day
I got a call from this number and someone named Lauren said she worked in the office of Congressman G or something. Where can I get a list of all congressman in DC?
Called me twice at 8:00 AM Pacific on a Tue. I answered both times: there is no person on the line! Just beep...beep...beep...
I received a call fro this number today and it reports it is a non-working number. No message left.
I got a call from this number at 2:00 A.M. Very weird. If the number is legit then the caller must have dialed me in error.Else very weird.
I got a voicemail from this number. The caller was following up on a message I had sent to Congressman John Campbell's office (R-CA 48).
This was a legitimate call. It came from my Congressman's office where I was trying to get a US Flag flown for an Eagle Scout. But the above comments are correct, in that it's only a "covering" phone number - and not the specific phone number of the person calling.
This number actually appears on the caller ID regardless of whether or not the caller wants to remain anonymous. It's like calling from a hotel--the number that shows up on the person's caller ID is the hotel's external number, not the phone number of the actual room you are calling from. That's why you often have to dial '9' first from a hotel phone, just as you have to dial '9' to call out from a Congressional office. Believe me, it would be much less complicated for everyone (including the people calling) if it just showed a valid callback number!
I seems that this is a number used by US Reps when they want to remain anonymous - when i called it back it said it was a non-working number for the US house of reps. Apparently, it's been in existence for some years based on the comments here and other websites, but it's always a "non-working" number. Sneaky i call it.
The person with this number called me twice... and my voicemail was a recording of me playing a song I made up on the piano (I wouldn't be able to remember it so I recorded it and saved it)... so they couldn't leave a messagecould it have been a congressperson?I was in contact with the senators and congressppls for a nomination to the naval academy. which didn't work out btw.I wonder who it was. I was outside shoveling, and I didn't have my phone on me.
We got a call but we were not home and no message....who is this?
I got a call from this number saying that I have won 2 Inauguration tickets from the office of Congressman John Campbell of California. I was given a couple of numbers(seat number i guess) and was told to pick them up at the congressman office in DC. However, I decided to call this number back a day later, its not a working number. dont know if its legit or a scam. Anyone else has this similar call?
I got a call from this number from my Congressman's office stating that I unfortunately all Innauguration tickets had been distributed and I did not get any.
So, I got a call too.....I wonder if this is like an important call or what.....oh well I guess if it is important they will leave a message.
I received this number on my cell phone. Didn't answer, no message left.
This message was left by a male caller on my office voice mail on 6-12-2008 @ 11:31am Alaska Time. It was definitely a male caller who did not leave his name. The message said: "How come you're not available? All these weeks and I haven't called you and then you're not there when I do call you. You outta give me a call. Okay-bye."The caller did not leave a phone number to call him back at. The phone number was recorded by my office voice mail system along with the date & time.The voice sounded strangely familiar, however when I called the phone number back, it said "You have reached a non-working phone # at the U.S. House of Representatives. G3B".
I submitted an email a couple weeks to my U.S. Congressman. The number we are all getting is indeed from the U.S. Capitol complex. I know him personally since he was one of my school teachers in Utah. He called me back from there and left a message. You might be getting the calls if you emailed any officials with offices there. They are not prank calls.
This call was from a representative of my congressman Chris Smith in response to an email I sent about a problem I needed help with. At least they get back to you.
got a call this day from this number...hang up with no message.Is it is political call from a candidate
I got a call from this number 2022269928. I talked to a person from the Tours Office. I wanted to call him back. When I call back, it says non-working number, how do I call back to this person?
who was calling
It's a generic line ID for the US Capitol complex. When someone from a USC line calls out, all IDs are listed with this number. The same is true within large corporations with complicated phone systems.
Every phone call that originates from a non-public line in the House of Representatives has this number show up on caller id. It's not a 'real' House number, it's just there to let you know that someone from the House called.
My Girl Friend Called me from Her work and said that she has had 10 calls in a row from this number. I googled it to get info and I must say I was a little weirded out over the amount of responses from this look up in regaurds to this number.
I received a call from this number and it was really from the US House of Representatives and was a live person. But when I call the number back it says that it is a non working number at the US House. Strange!
I 've received calls from this number numerous time from some guy working near the Capitol. THe same thing when I called back it's a nonworking number.
I just received a call this afternoon from this number, which I did not answer since I didn't recognize it. I randomly googled it, not thinking Google would turn up anything and to my surprise I recieved a number of hits! This is the first time I've gotten a call from this number and given what you all have been saying, hopefully it'll be the last...
I've been getting this call for several months. Usually I miss it and there's no message. Tonite I called it back and the "non-working number..." was the message. I'll have to try to catch it next time.
I answered my phone Hello a man's voice said I have the wrong number and hung up. I called the number back And a recording said that I had reached a Non working number at The house of Representatives.
My call was twice from Mike Russo 9/19/07
Received a call from this number 202-226-9928.A voicemail was left by someone named "Felicia or Phylcia Reynolds".I have always been active writing letters to Congressional offices so I was not surprised when Ms. Reynolds said "this is in response to your letter dated...." and then the phone line disconnected.I dialed *69 which provided the number 202-226-9928 in addition to the time of the call. The *69 automated operator stated this phone line belonged to a nonworking number at the House of Representatives. I then called the phone number and a man answered.The strange thing about the male answering was the fact that he did not give his name when he answered...It was NOT like he said "Hi, it's Bob..." found out who you were and then started talking. He said nothing more than "hello".Can you say creepy???????????????????????????????????????????????????????
This number called me earlier today when I was not at home. No message left.
