A voice will tell you this when you call it:
- "Yes sir"
- "The agents were called"
- "Card to access the safe purchased"pic.twitter.com/0mK5vnUVTI
Users who call the number are played a pre-recorded message saying "Yes, Sir. The agents were called. Card to access the safe acquired." The location or function of the safe is a matter of speculation with many players theorizing that it may refer to the vault that was discovered under Loot Lake during Chapter 1 Season 2.
The gold theme has also appeared on the official Fortnite channel confirming that "Gold" will feature majorly in Chapter 1 Season 2.
Some of the best information has come from Fortnite's army of data miners - who trawl the game files in the search of upcoming additions to the game.

With all these new gold objects in the world has led many to believe that Epic has plans to introduce a new Gold material to the game. If this is the case this would be one of the biggest additions to the game since the game started.
There is also a leak of a character called "Oro" which looks like a level 100 skin if we ever saw one, the legendary skin bares the description - "Golden treasure, an eternal obsession."
Some have also connected the Oro skin to a voice message discovered when calling the US teaser number which mentions an "oil rig operation".
