I Think My Phone Number Has Been Spoofed…

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

So yesterday I got a call from someone with a local number asking why I called her. I had not called her. She insisted I had. My call log said I hadn’t.

Looking around online, it’s possible that someone is spoofing my number, but — only once? And to a local cell? That seems strange. It appears there’s nothing one can do about it, in any case, except change your number.

However, sites addressing the issue suggested phone owners register their cell phons with www.donotcall.gov. I registered. Again.

This won’t fix the problem of the call spoofing, but it might save me a moment with telemarketers.
