Something strange, coincidence?

For the first time yesterday I put in the phone #0000000000 on my Paypal label. I just got a phone call saying it was from 0000000000!

I didn't answer, could it be something to do with the number I put on the label?

That is bizarre but I doubt that it has anything to do with what you put on the label.

Could it possibly be that Paypal has set up their computers to verify the numbers entered for labels if they look somewhat odd in any way?

Maybe Rose, it just seemed very strange, why would someone from a 0000000000 call me? There would be no such number.

I've used 0's a few times and haven't had any phone calls with 0s since then.

 

I have seen all 0's on call display once or twice before but it was months ago, long before I entered any phone numbers on a label.  I assumed it was some sort of telemarketer.  If you google it there have been people asking about all zero phone calls for years.

Thanks, it was a bit freaky, obviously a coincidence.
