Anyone have their phone # Spoofed?
2 weeks ago I never even heard of spoofing.
It seems like someone is using our phone number as their caller id#. Commonly used by telemarketers or scammers.
We are being bombarded by people calling us - not happy - telling us to stop calling them or else...
The fraud dept of our phone carrier is investigating this but I really don't feel too hopeful that it will be resolved.
The scarey thing is that our name also shows up on their caller id. Our adddress can easily be found by just looking up our name & number. And some of these people are livid.
Even if I change my number they already have the info from the number being spoofed.
Not even sure what to do here.
Just wanted to mention that if you are an individual getting calls from individuals you don't know, it could be a scam and someone may be using a phone number as their caller id that doesn't belong to them.
