The forums show Q&A about your own number being used by spoofers to spam others. I had the opposite problem today: A spam caller showed as an incoming call from my husband - who was sitting next to me and definitely NOT calling me right that moment! I took a screenshot showing his contact name and number, then picked up to see who it was (“your credit card history blabla”). I tried talking to the rep, but due to their strong accent and following script of course didn’t find out who was behind it. Usually I take spam callers’ number and assign them to a contact labeled SPAM so I can block them next time, but with this one spoofing a personal contact of mine, I can’t do that.
Two questions for RW:
- Any way to find out what actual number was behind it? (I have the exact time in my “recent calls” and the screenshot)
- What other data of mine might they have hacked into if they found out that this was a frequently-called number among my contacts?
