I just received a call from a small-town insurance agent who said he was returning my call. I never called the agent, and when I call him back he said “this was the number that showed up on my caller ID”.
So my number was spoofed. I understand someone is making their number show up as mine on the caller ID, and that it’s not necessarily illegal.
Question…is my phone still secure? Can whoever is doing this receive calls or texts intended for my phone? Or, is this just a caller ID trick?
I’m concerned about the texts because I use those for login/authentication.
