Update edit!!!!! Just got off the phone with US Cellular. Turns out many of you were correct. It is just call spoofing. It's even weirder though. You can download an app that will allow you to display whatever numbers you want on called ID. It's that simple. Interesting. About once a week a get a call from someone local. The numbers are all local. Me: "Hello" Other person: "Yeah I had a missed call from this number." Me: "Uh..... nope. Not me." Other person now indignant: "I'm looking right at it and you called me." Me: "There must be some technical issue or mistake. When did you get the call?" Other person: "Just now! There's no mistake. You called ME!" Me: "Sorry, no. Didn't happen. This phone has been in front of me all morning and I have called no-one." Then it just gets worse from there. As many people on TalkBass who are scared to death of phones, I assure you that isn't a problem in Eastern NC. Twenty years ago I would have invited these jerks to meet me in a parking lot. But I'm more chill these days. Anyway, the carrier is US Cellular. The numbers are all from my town. Some are land lines and some mobile. The voices are all different.... some men, some women. Some more annoyed than others and some just confused and kind. It's happened about ten times now. None of them have tried to sell me anything and none of them have said anything about wanting to meet me. They seem genuinely as confused as I am. No scam red flags have presented themselves. I have even tried to bait them a little and they seem more suspicious of me than I am of them. Whataya think?
