Area code 982 has not yet been assigned by NANPA to any specific region or location in the United States. However, if there is a demand for additional phone numbers in a specific location, the area code may be issued in the future. When an area code isn’t assigned to a specific region or location, it’s known as a “general purpose” area code.
This indicates that if someone receives a phone call or text message from a number with the area code 982 is most likely a spam or scam call.
Any phone number with area code 982-XXX-XXX does not exist. Therefore, if you receive a phone call or text from this number you should proceed with caution and not provide any personal or financial information.
You can report the call or text to your phone company or Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to help others from becoming the victims of these spam calls in the future.
