Calls being made to 200-100-0001 - not by me

Calls being made to 200-100-0001 - not by me

The xfinity phone logs outgoing phone calls to 1-200-100-001 at different times of the day, once 3 times in one day and they range from 4 seconds to 2 minutes in length. Not every day. Someone on the net suggested it was xfinity logging TV channel selections. Someone else said that all phones were disconnected and these calls still were logged. My first concern is a virus on one of my machines dialing out. I don't have xfinity TV, but suspect it is xfinity doing something and not telling me about it.

What is making these calls? What is going on? Is something hijacked??

It is the Comcast redirect number when a call is FWD to your cellphone within the CDV service....if you use the connect app to be able to answer calls going to another phone with your cell phone then it generates a redirect call to your call logs to that #200-100-0001. Nothing to worry about, its comcast.

Do you have your home phone forwarded to your cellphone?

No. And it would be a screwy system to log some crazy internal number instead of the number calling or the number forwarded to, at least, right?

I do have my home phone forwarded to my cell and IPad and have many calls forwarded.   This bogus number appears in the call log only occasionally. .??   Does it show up only if I answer the forwarded call?

Since it is logging the call, I expect it do it for every forwarded call, whether you answer it or not.

I wd think so too, but it seems random. I'll try to keep track for a while. Possibly it doesn't log the forwarding if the IPhone is not turned on.

 

BTW how did u originally find out about the 200-100-0001 number?
