Seeing the 999 area code on caller ID outside of Mexico is likely a glitch or a scam. On phone number forums such as 800notes, many posters report receiving suspicious calls from 999 numbers where the caller attempts to sell a service. Some individuals use call spoofing services to call from 999-999-9999 in order to hide their true identities and phone numbers.
