Caller ID Masking or Spoofing: Remedies

debt collector


Caller ID spoofing is when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity. Spoofing is often used as part of an attempt to trick someone into giving away valuable personal information so it can be used in fraudulent activity or sold illegally, but also can be used legitimately, for example, to display the toll-free number for a business.  FCC Guide To Spoofing

What is neighbor spoofing?

Robocallers use neighbor spoofing, which displays a phone number similar to your own on your caller ID, to increase the likelihood that you will answer the call. To help combat neighbor spoofing, the FCC is urging the phone industry to adopt a robust caller ID authentication system.

Vacation and Do Not Call List

Have you been called about timeshares, resorts, or other vacation programs.  If you registered for the Do Not Call List, these calls are unlawful.

1. A program to Stop the Calls

Imagine if you parked in a high traffic area in midtown New York City, (where parking rates can be as high as $60-75 per day) and someone left a note saying saying parking was not permitted but no ticket.  Alternatively, imagine if your car was towed and you faced a 90.00 ticket and towing charges.  You might be angry with your towed car, but would probably not park there again.  Likewise with the telemarketers.

Telling them nicely not to call or saying you’re on the Do Not Call List usually does little.  You need to have them face a penalty and that is what we help you do.  After 1 or at most 2 claims, they will probably decide to call another number.

2. What Information is Needed


First, we need to know who is calling.  You may want to listen to their pitch and gently find out the name of the company.  Better yet, get a website.  Please write down the date and time of the call and the number calling if possible.  With that, if there is a U.S. company involved, we can contact them and present a claim.  There is no cost to the client, and we have settled a number of Do Not Call cases.
