It appears that the phone hacking thieves are trying a new tactic in our area. You get a call from yourself. A “Spoofed” call is send to your number from your number. DON”T ANSWER IT. is it a scam that is meant to trick you and hack into your information.
I received one today, and I saw someone else post about getting one. That is more than random, and could represent a new wave of spoofing calls. A spoofed call is one that makes it look like it is coming from a trusted number or one from your community. The hackers have the technology to misrepresent the number they are calling from. Many people are just letting all calls roll over to answer machines to deal with all these calls.
