What is Call Spoofing?

Call Spoofing

Call Spoofing or Caller Id Spoofing is another trick that spammers used to trick people by making fake calls. With this trick, a person can make a call that may appear to come from a fake number he decides. Cybercriminals can use this to make abusive and threatening calls with fake numbers. The victim will blame the number owner for that call. Think how harmful it can be if the cybercriminal has used your number for any criminal activity. In this post, we will see what is Call spoofing, how to make spoofed calls, and how to protect yourself.

What is Call Spoofing

Call Spoofing is also called “Caller ID spoofing” because it deals with caller id. When someone calls you, your mobile phone or landline phone with caller Id displays the caller’s number (along with the name if the number is saved in contacts). In Call Spoofing, a person tries to fake calls with the wrong caller ID. So, a call may appear to come from any fake number that may or may not exist. A person can call you from any number he wants to display on caller id.

The first caller ID spoofing service came into existence back in 2004. It was star38.com. It was the first website that offered people to make calls with fake caller IDs. But this site could only run for a year. After that, many sites came into existence and now we have more than 100 websites offering similar kinds of services.
