855 number are being hoarded

Analysis of the usage of 855 area coded phone numbers has lead to the discovery of data that concluded that a number of ‘insiders’ at more than 20 Organizations that are Responsible for the registration of Toll-free phone numbers, otherwise known as REPORGS, have obtained more than 3000 premium phone numbers with the 855 area code that the resporgs are activly hoarding for the people that work at the resporg.

Hoarding is defined as an illegal activity by the Federal Trade Commission and FCC rules that outline the proper usage of toll free phone numbers, and defines hoarding as the acquisition of more toll free numbers than one intends to use immediately or the registration of toll free numbers without an active customer requesting that number.  Hoarding also encompasses the registration of specific toll free numbers to be brokered or sold at a later time.
