In August, Google added a feature to Gmail that lets you make phone calls
— for free, if you live in the US or Canada and you're calling someone in the US or Canada. When you make a call, your number shows up as 760-705-8888. Judging by the nine pages of complaints found here
, the service is often being used to prank, harass and scam people.This Google query
brings up many similar complaints.
