Phone Hacked

I have received over 20 calls from different people that have claimed I called them moments earlier about a scam. I am doing nothing of the sort and am scared about who has access to my phone number? I tried to access my voicemail, but my voicemail phone number was forwarded to a number I was not familiar with. 

 

Help!!!

Re: Phone Hacked

Hey @gpsinghaujla ! Smiley

It's understandable that you would be worried when someone claims you called them and you didn't.
 

It sounds like this was caused by Caller ID spoofing. This happens when a caller deliberately changes the information transmitted to the caller ID display, to disguise their identity. In other words, they use another phone number to mask theirs. 

 

The good news is that this doesn't mean that the caller has access to your line or any of your information.

When it comes to the voicemail, are you pressing and holding the 1 key, to access your voice messages?
