FCC Consumer Alert: 'Neighbor Spoofing'

04.2.2018

The FCC is warning consumers about "neighbor spoofing" scams where thieves manipulate caller ID information in ways that make calls appear to have been placed locally.  While a call might originate overseas, the caller ID information on the recipient's phone would appear as though thge call is coming from the consumer's own area code and local exchange.  In general, scammers use such spoofing to increase the likelihood that consumers pick up the phone and to increase the consumer's trust in the call.
