Probably dumb to post this here, but my phone number is damn near identical to a police non-emergency number, and I get all sorts of voicemails about missing items, issues with relatives, and in one case a potential kidnapping. Yesterday I got two voicemails from a “congressman” in PA; an irate one about a welfare check on father-in-law, and then another with 2 or 3 minutes of pocket noises and background conversation. I almost always call them back to tell them they’ve got the wrong number, but most of these issues work themselves out by the time I respond.
