Some people hear the term “caller ID spoofing” and wonder what the heck it is. Although it’;s been around for about a decade now, few people actually know about it.
Caller ID spoofing is a service that allows individuals (including professionals and law enforcement officials) to place private calls in which a number of their choice appears on the receiver’;s call display. Instead of providing the true number that the call is being originated from, users can choose any number they want to display.
The service has seen its share of controversy over the years. Many people have claimed that caller ID spoofing is a system used by scammers or individuals attempting to commit fraud. The matter has even been taken to court and the service was ruled lawful. A large group of users are actually law enforcement. It’;s used to help trap suspects and criminals. It’;s great for protecting your privacy when placing calls to people you don’;t know as well. With so many people buying and selling online nowadays, it’;s best that you keep your information private.
Caller ID spoofing has since expanded into areas such as Spoof SMS, Spoof Fax, call recording, voice changing, and even sound boards. You’;re able to record your important calls and listen to them later, and you can change your voice to disguise your identity when placing calls. It’;s quite fascinating.
