This number is a Google account verification number. It is not a scam artist. I added the extra security to my Google email accounts to keep my ex from accessing my emails, it is a 2-step verification. The only time you will receive any contact from that number, is when you are attempting to access your Google accounts, they do not randomly contact you.

Whoever is doing it has called me at least fifteen times. I haven't answered. Maybe I will and I'll see if I can convert him to some fictitious religion. :-)

I just received a call from 202-455-8888. I was hesitant to answer so I didn't. When I check the voice message that was left, it was an automated voice that just said "your code is 72****". I then searched the number and came to this site. This is obviously a scam. Some people said that it's a google verification and some said it's a person begging for money. If it is legit, there wouldn't be so many different senarios for the same number. PLEASE BLOCK THIS NUMBER AND DON'T ANSWER IT.

why there is a call from 1 (202) 455-8888, my location in Indonesia, whether theft is included into account, after which I was sent google code verification, what do you mean yes.

Unless you're signing up for a Google voice account!
They contact you from a 4154637507 number at weird hours about your craigslist ad you posted and then tell you that you have to answer the 2024558888 number and type in a two digit confirmation code to talk to them! In reality they're linking your phone number to their account!! Who knows for what, but you can fix it! Just create your own Google voice account and set up your number. You can only sign up with a computer!

This is related to Craigslist scam near Long Beach, CA. From my experience, This number is linked to a Craigslist Scam. "Jasika" will text you asking for the item urgently. Once you reply, she texts you to accept her call, and press 03 to be transferred to her to talk. Immediately after that, you will receive a call from 202-455-8888, once a minute, every minute until you answer. DO NOT ANSWER!! They will attempt to get you to give them information to sign up for a monthly subscription which you cannot cancel, EVER.

AT&T were very helpful. They did indeed set up a google voice account with my info and used my number (no idea why unless to make international calls with my account). I got my account back. I only put in the code because she was supposedly hearing impaired and she needed the services of the company I work for.

Either Google is out to lunch or they are not aware that this number is considered a scam number and at least at my place instantly stopped by the security code. So, they send a call, it gets stopped before the second ring and guess what?I anyone awake there? Regardless of what they want they are doing it wrong. And I am about to go somewhere else since I am tired of telling them that this is happening here and nobody at Google seems to care.

Scammer, but they never got to the scam part. Contacted by text from a craig's list post. They called within 5 min of posting the ad. That was my first clue it was a scam.They wanted me to dial 93 when they called me. I didn't do it. Then when I reminded them by text about the ad they were responding to on Craig's list they said there was no need to meet in person. They are a scam I expect.

This is just a number Google uses for verification for it's services. The code users get asked to enter is usually so someone can use your number to get access to the service. Don't do it. Additionally, some scanners may spoof as this number. Stay safe.

I posted an ad on CL and within a few minutes I got a text from someone saying that they want to buy my item URGENTLY. He/she asked to answer the call and enter 65 as they are calling from Google phone. Having never heard of such a thing I decided not to answer. I am curious as to what is this all about!

Received Text from (727)209-7053 asking if I was still looking for a job. I text back saying "who is this?" The next morning at 6:30AM I received a text back stating "This is Victor, Thanks. OK receive the call and enter code:79 and record your voice with name and desired rate, thanks." Almost immediately my phone rang, caller ID was (202)455-8888 Washington, D.C. I ignored it until the 5th call I picked up, it was an automated message telling me to enter my code and record my info. I hung up. This number continued to call me every 2 minutes until I got to work at 700AM and had to go onto Verizon and block them. I blocked them from my phone which stopped the calls but it still allowed them to leave voicemails, which the auto machine did do, I had 20 voicemails and had to delete them all. I reported these numbers to the FTC and Verizon fraud department.
