I have been receiving lots of calls from random people saying they had a missed call from my number. At first I thought I must have pocket dialled but checking my phone log I have not called these people! Some say the caller was silent and others that there was some low level background noise but no conversation. I think someone has spoofed my number, they have somehow changed their caller ID so when they make calls it appears like my number! I can’t see the purpose as when the random targets pick up they don’t say anything!
Does anyone know how to stop this happening? So far I have had 8 ‘ghost returned’ calls over two days and fear this is going to get worse. I have advised people who call me to block my number to stop it happening to them again but numbers seem to be landlines rather than mobiles. I guess I could change my number but use this number for my business so don’t want to go through huge hassle, any suggestions?
