Woman with phone number similar to gas station receives multiple calls

'I just unplugged it,' she says

SAN ANTONIO – Gas station issues have been causing problems for people all over town, but for one woman, the situation has given her a real headache.

Irene Vargas said her home phone line has been receiving calls meant for a Shell station.

Vargas said her phone number is just a few digits off from a gas station on Vance Jackson Road. She estimates she’s gotten at least 30 to 40 calls since Thursday.

“Sometimes, I would give them the number,” she said. “Finally, I just unplugged it because I couldn’t get any sleep, hardly.”

Vargas said she has had people call her accidentally before, but it’s never been that bad.
