Please call this number very important info. 16319607178 Keep it real
from a 704 phone number, Monday, January 21, 2:54 PM

I did not call this number because it looked suspiciously like spam, like if it were an email it would say "Please click on this link" and you would find yourself on a pay-per-minute porn site. But if you want to call this number to find out what's actually on the other hand, please, be my guest. Report back!

So I did the next best thing and googled the phone number. I got these cryptic results:

From Dancehallreggae.com: Call 631-960-7178 and press code 767 after they ask for the number. ... Excuse me... Question...isn't 631 a Ottawa,Canada area code? Is this ting free? ...

From a MySpace page: Jan 19 2008 12:22 PM you swear yo call me at this # 631-960-7178. $@Lv@TòRé, Jan 19 2008 12:03 PM If u pierce ur tounge I'm gonna have to ask u to makeout ...

From a different MySpace page: i give you one day(631) 960-7178, Jan 18 2008 9:08 PM MyHotComments.com · MyHotComments · Jme, Jan 15 2008 10:21 AM Hey Paula Thanx 4 The Add Keep On Kickin ...

Unfortunately, none of the links seemed to have any information available after I clicked them, but I've done my best to elucidate what is, clearly, a bizarre and complicated puzzle.

Lucy, thank you so much for looking into this. You have truly "filled in the blanks" here. This mystery obviously runs much deeper than I ever had imagined. Good sleuthing. It's not for nothing that I call you Lucy "Nancy Drew."

There's been a lot of activity since you got that text with that number. Here's a pretty funny forum that talks about it:

Man, that sounds a lot like "click this link!" But this isn't pay-per-minute porn, don't worry.

It's a number you're supposed to give to people who won't go away or as a joke. There are break-up numbers too! I thought the messages were pretty funny actually...here's the website:
