How do I stop getting calls from my own number?
In all cases, the best thing to do is report the call to the Do Not Call Registry at complaints.donotcall.gov or call 888-382-1222. Anyone who is illegally spoofing can face penalties of up to $10,000 for each violation, though they are hard to track down.
How do I stop unwanted cell phone calls?
One of the best ways to block unwanted calls on a cell phone is to download a call-blocking app. A call-blocking app acts like a filter. The company behind the app uses call data or reports from users, the FTC, and other sources to predict which calls are illegal or likely scams.
Why does my own number keep calling me?
Scam artists now use technology to make a persons caller ID show their own name and phone number-making it appear as though a person is calling him or herself. These scam artists are falsifying-or spoofing-caller ID information. You should never provide your personal or financial information to unknown callers.
