Someone has been spoofing my phone number and I’m getting several return calls a day saying I called them. All seem to start after lunch.
Not like it wasn’t bad enough with the scam calls stating I’ve won a trip. Help me stop the **bleep** !!!!!!!
Do I change my number or cell provider. ???
I think by now everyone is fed-up with these number spoofing.
Unfortunately changing your number or provider will not solve this problem, as the scammers/fraudster can spoof any number they want.
Fortunately the CRTC is asking the providers to implement a new technology which is a caller ID authentication and verification measure known as STIR/SHAKEN (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited / Signature-based Handling of Asserted Information Using Tokens).
This new measure should be implemented by September 2020.
