I’ve gotten 8 messages so far in the last 2 days saying someone got a call from my number, who I don’t know and hadn’t called.
I know this has been a common problem in the past and saw some old questions about people whose numbers had been spoofed, for instance:
However, I think there’s new rules since 2021-06-30 and I wondered if those have changed anything on best practices. These docs from the FCC go over the new system:
So in theory, for the last 36 days the source of all calls should have been authenticated, and it should be impossible for someone to spoof my number, so I’m surprised that this has happened this week.
Is Republic Wireless in compliance with the FCC order to authenticate the source of calls, and if so is it possible to find out more about whoever has been initiating these calls?
(And was my number definitely spoofed, or could it have been a Republic Wireless call mapping error of some sort? Is there any way to get visibility on this, or do I just have to quietly accept dozens of people I don’t know trying to call me back without any way for me to take action on tracking down the root cause?)
