Neighbor Spoofing

Posted on July 29, 2019 at 2:00 PM

I've become aware of something that I never knew existed until today and I must say - it angered me tremendously!

I've had several calls over the past week or so with folks asking me to stop calling them about Locksmith Services.  I've tried explaining to these people that I have not called them at all about anything - including Locksmith Services and they've all informed me that my number shows up on their Caller ID.

So I dig around and find out about a thing called "Neighbor Spoofing".  The illegitimate / fake companies have now found a way to copy the phone numbers and trick Caller ID's to make potential consumers believe they are someone else.  Unbelievable!


The term "Neighbor Spoofing" refers to telemarketers and scammers changing their phone number to resemble your phone number.
