40. That person who called is impersonating the FBI.
Edited on Sat Jul-08-06 09:57 AM by Gregorian
If that's the FBI's phone number. I thought I read that in this thread.

The only thing I can say is that if someone is using the fbi's number, you have a clear cut case against them. I would file a complaint with the fbi that they are being impersonated.

I would bet anything that you won't get an answer on this. And given we're now being wiretapped, it would be pretty revealing if you weren't able to get their attention.

I find this most disturbing. This is the act of someone who is deeply troubled. And it's quite ironic that here we are wanting to "wiretap", and I will guarantee that you won't get the time of day.

Then again, I personally would probably be too afraid of my own country's fbi to go near them. What a joke.
