The sound of a ringing phone has plagued Rose Stama and her family; wrong number phone calls have flooded the Flushing household for the past month, mostly from abroad.
Stama, 85, has had to unplug her phone in order to get some sleep at night.
After speaking with many of the wrong number callers, Stama's daughter and granddaughter figured out that a phone card company called STI Prepaid was at the root of the problem.
NY1 called Verizon and STI and they determined that STI technicians accidentally listed Stama's number as the outgoing number for STI's calling cards. The two numbers, as it turns out, differ by only a digit.
