I got that call number 866-419-5000. It showed on my VP. I googled it and found this. Oh, that's a scam. Please keep spread word around to watch out for that number. Why not Federal Bureau of Investigation to check it out?

This is an Emergency Communication from your local authorities to notify you of an event that may require your attention. It includes Amber Alert notifications and other alerts for your area

The call woke us up at 2:27am. It was an Amber Alert. It said it was from our county. It is now close to 2 hours later and I still can't get back to sleep. I'm an epileptic and need my sleep. Why call when most people are sleeping? I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of my landline with hopes that they won't get my cell number.
I wrote the above statement. They didn't actually say Amber Alert. I just assumed because the caller was describing what someone was wearing and if we see the person to call our Sheriff's Dept. Other than that I don't know what was said because the call woke me up & I was groggy. Was this a legit call? I checked my Sheriff's page and it didn't have any alerts. Oh, and I'm still awake from that call 3 hours later (sigh)
Female caller said she was reporting missing child. She gave child's name, age, weight, height, clothes description and last seen at 3000 Ben Mar. Caller said to call Houston Police department @ 713-731-5223. Caller also mentioned AChildIsMissing.org. I do not know how caller got my cell phone number. Call came in at 9:45 PM. Message was left in my voice mail.
SPAM! No LEGIT company is going to ask you to enter all of your personal information and then let all of your friends and family know. What a joke. Don't be fooled by these morons. What's next? So if someone calls and says to go outside and take a look at your dogs poop, run back inside and tell you the color and orgin of where and when and what your dog may have eaten and then to tell all of your friends, would you do it? Use common sense people.
They keep calling even though I have asked a number of times for them to stop.
This is a legitimate number. The number is used nationwide by emergency agencies (police, fire, sheriff, etc.) under the auspices of Code Red. It is basically a reverse 911 call notifying citizens of an actual emergency, either immediate or imminent. NEVER disregard calls from this number! It may just save your life, someone else's life, or aid in finding a missing child or adult!
I don't know what he said and don't five a dam as I'm hard hearing and getting tired of being harassed by this number. I figure it is a part of Homeland Security and used for this purpose due to the fact the government FBI, FCC and Do Not Call Registry does nothing to stop it. I don't shake in my boots just because of some code, weather radio goes off or because they claim terrorist has attempted something. I've done to much history on Hitler, Gobbel's, The Brown Shirts and Gustopo. You come up with a better answer with the number of complaints out there. Spread the word around and the government will be forced to shut it down. And if done lightly or quietly then we know we are right. Publically we might have the chance of a class action lawsuite with rewards.
This number is just another SCAM ARTIST trying to SCAM people. It would be nice if the phone company would step up and do something about these SCAMs
It was for CodeRED alert within the city and county limits. Official call from the county office (recorded voice) stating the new program CodeRED has been started.
Calls several times in early a.m. Leaves no message. Claims to be "Code Red", but I suspect that criminal telemarketers (pardon the redundancy) or criminal debt collectors (same comment) somehow rig the call to appear to be a legitimate call from the local authorities. Is there anyway, other than spending huge amounts of money we working people don't have, to stop these crooks? Any ideas out there?

This is the call back number for the CodeRED Emergency Notification System. This system is used by cities, counties, and local government for getting information out to their community; they have complete control over the messages and when they are sent out. If you are receiving calls and it is inconvenient for you, you can simply contact your local officials and request to be put on their no call list. If the system gets an answering machine/voice mail it will leave a message; if person answers it delivers the message immediately; if you call back the number it will play the last message delivered to your phone number. The other issues express in previous postings have more to do with your phone company than CodeRED (there is not enough room or time here to address them). CodeRED is also used by â€œA Child is Missingâ€; a national non-profit organization that issues missing persons alerts free for local law enforcement for missing children and at risk adults. A Child is Missing issuing CodeRED alerts has lead to over 400 safe recoveries. CodeRED is also used by some colleges, universities, and K-12 schools to send emergency information to students/parents, staff, and faculty.
Just about done! You can optionally provide additional information to help us identify who called you.
