LIGHTKEEPER3, I understand where you're coming from. It can be confusing when you receive a call from a strange number, and are unable to call it back. It is possible that the call is from a marketer of some type. Often calls from automated dialing systems do not show up with a valid number, and are unable to be called back. You can block the number to prevent future calls here: http://spr.ly/65848dV5s

Short codes are 4-6 digit numbers; you've listed a phone number.

The area code is for a number in the Denver Metro area. That number overlaps with 303.

I don't believe this is a standard phone number - the message was blank with this number and when I attempted to call back, it tells me there is a problem completing my call.

It might not be an active number and someone had attempted to spoof it.

LIGHTKEEPER3,

We are here to help as best as possible with any concerns you have regarding a strange number you received a message from. I show that you posted an actual phone number & not a short code number. When you received this message, was there any text content inside? If so, what did it say? At times, someone can text someone
