DID YOU KNOW? 

Did you know that nearly 3 billion spam and telemarketing calls are received in the United States each month? “Neighbor spoofing” is one of the call drivers behind this. It is a new technique scammers do to get people to answer their phone. Caller ID spoofing is when a caller deliberately falsifies the information showing on the caller ID display using private call apps to conceal their identity. It allows them to display a phone number different than the actual number from which the call came. They usually do it to trick someone into giving away Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for fraudulent activities or to sell it illegally. Neighbor spoofing displays a phone number similar to your own to increase the likelihood that you will pick up the phone. Using this technology, you can send or receive outgoing or incoming calls phone calls and texts that appear to be from a number of their choosing.

Despite the growing number of spam and spoof calls, most forms of caller ID spoofing are legal. There are certain cases where it can be used. Some professionals work from home and if they need to contact a client or customers and want to appear to be calling from the office, they can do caller ID spoofing. By using spoof caller apps, doctors who are on call or those who respond to emergencies from home and mobile but do not want to give out their home or cell number can do this. Some free spoof calling apps, however, are used to defraud, cause harm or wrongfully obtain any information of value. To make sure that these services are not abused by spammers, the Federal Trade Commision (FTC) imposed a penalty of up to $10,000 for each call or text violation.

    "Do NOT download this app! This app is very unreliable and doesnt even simulate at the times you ask it to. It also does not even look like a real phone calling menu so it makes you look foolish. "
