Jamaican calls harassing phone customers, asking them to call 876 area code

NewsNet5 "CLEVELAND - When Mike Wagner played his voicemail for NewsChannel5, he played a message from a man with a thick accent. Other than the accent, it was a typical call with a typical request to call back.

If Mike Wagner redialed the '876' area code to see what the caller wanted, he'd get an international charges on his phone bill.

Caller ID saved Wagner money.

'I see it's 876 so I know it's a Jamaica call,' Wagner explained.
