Letters: Phantom phone calls

Dear Editor:

Like the King of Siam, I have a puzzlement. Maybe a Signal reader can help.

Every couple of weeks I get a peculiar telephone call on my AT&T land line. It is during the daytime when I’m oftentimes busy.

I hastily turn off the burners on the stove, or the iron, or race in from outside. But when I pick up the phone and say “Hello,” there is nothing but silence.

Then in a few seconds a woman’s voice says “Goodbye,” elongating the last syllable so it sounds like “goodbyeee.”

Who is making these calls? Why? Are others getting them, too?

Solution, anyone?
