some weird ish has been happening to me all week of last week and now this week. I called my phone company and they told me it's a relatively new scam called ID spoofing or something, where a telemarketer uses your number as a shell to cover their actual ID to call people.

So random people have been calling me all week telling me they have a missed call from me. I'm like..uhhh no. i don't know who you are, bye!

Then i notice a number would call me, the phone rings once and before I could even answer, the person hangs up.

Guess I need to tell my mom about this. She calls back unknown numbers all the time.

Don't call them back either.

yeah, people who call back random numbers seem pressed.

Lol i call back random numbers. Not 1800 numbers but local numbers. Unless i hear of a scam on the news etc. then i don't pick up or call back. Blocked calls i neverrr pick up, or i make the Mr. pick up in a Chinese accent lol. His Chinese accent is on point.
