mobile phone number

I'm getting people who call me back saying they have missed a phone call from my number.  But i haven't called them.  

 

In both instances they just clicked on the number the missed and dialled it back and got me.

 

How is this happening?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: mobile phone number

That is probably just a spammer, randomly using your number to disguise their own number.

 

There is very little you can do about it, in most cases the spammer eventually stops using your number and moves on the the next one in their list.

 

Part of the solution is for people to verify where the call is coming from - check voicemail, send a text etc. before calling back. Make sure you always leave a message if you call someone, so they know it really is from you.

 

Inconvenient situation for sure, but as I said, very, very hard to prevent or police as your number is obviously a 'real' one..
