Has anybody here had their number spoofed? Apparently thats the term for when a telemarketer "uses" your phone number to make their calls. Reason being, when someone checks the caller id, it looks local. Im asking because this has happened to a family member, and she is now getting 50 to 60 callbacks a day. The funny thing is, all the numbers that get called have the same area code and first three numbers. So it makes it look like a local call and thats why people are calling/texting back. The research i did says there is basically nothing we can do but change numbers. Anybody?
