It was a handy man working on an apartment building. It could have been anything.

The more I think about it the more I am convinced that "someone" connected a dryer into a range circuit somewhere in the complex and it is back feeding the ground. Could be from a different unit.

I'm not sure I see where you are going with that scenario? The OP would have to have an open neutral, in any case, i'm not losing any sleep over this one, if I'm not there taking the meter readings myself, and doing the trouble shooting, this type of question is simply impossible to answer.

In an earlier thread started by the same op he ask ed about connecting a dryer to a range circuit. Sounds like he did and it is back feeding the ground. Just my thoughts. I'm done with this one also.

Just as an FYI.....

A typical hardwired traditional phone line is going to have 48 volts DC on it. It's used to determine On/Off hook.

And....if you decide that you want to touch those wires while the phone is ringing....be ready to hold on....

After reading the other thread, I think it could be a related issue also.

He probably left after the derailment. But he might come back and let us know what was found out.
