I received a call from +17879488621 . The caller (who had a strong Indian accent) claimed to be from Ally Financial and told me that there was a problem on my line which was causing delays . I was already suspicious so I strung him along and confirmed to him that there was a problem, even though there was not one really . He told me he could solve the problem and increase the speed on my line . I thanked him and said that it seemed that Christmas had come early this year - it was actually 11 May . He then asked me if I was near my router but I said I was not . He then said something which I could not understand because of his strong accent . When I told him I did not understand what he had said he rang off and has not called again . Obviously a scam .

Telephone numbers in Puerto Rico are assigned under the North American Numbering Plan (NANP). Prior to March 1, 1996, Puerto Rico was one of many Caribbean islands served by area code 809. On that date Puerto Rico was assigned the new area code 787 (with the mnemonic PUR or PTR). Permissive dialing of 809 ended January 31, 1997. As elsewhere in the NANP region, increasing use of modems and mobile telephones strained the supply of seven-digit numbers within area 787, and an overlay plan came into effect in or about September 2001. Puerto Rico now has two area codes, 787 and 939. The new code is used mostly for wireless phones. Because of the overlay, the area code must be dialed for all calls.
