Wow is this what people think that live outside of the USA?

555 is an automatic fake number. No company has those starting numbers. And who is stupid enough to call a number that the show on TV??

Actually, no phone numbers in America start with "555", they use it in television shows and movies so that if someone tries to call the number, no one will have to be annoyed by it.

False, in America area codes are based on the area you live in. Like in Fort Worth the area code is "817" or "682"
