Caller ID spoofing has been around for several years now and the controversy surrounding it has not waned. Call spoofing is the act of changing the phone number that appears on someone’s call display when you place a call to them. Instead of blocking or revealing your real number, you choose the number that is displayed.
Although it is still somewhat unknown to the general public, this type of service has continued to gain in popularity and is used by everyone from regular individuals to professionals, law enforcement, and even celebrities. It’s a tool that allows people to retain anonymity and keep their identity, or at least their phone numbers, private. Even when placing a call to someone that is familiar and trusted, there is a chance that the person’s telephone could be lost or stolen with your number contained on it. For celebrities in particular, this could be disastrous.
There are several providers that offer the call spoofing service to anyone. In addition to call spoofing, other services and calling features have been added over the years. Some of these include voice changing, call recording, SMS spoofing, personal Spoof Numbers, and, most recently, mobile applications.
SpoofTel and SpoofEm, two caller ID spoofing providers, have recently released iPhone applications that allow you to use its service from your iPhone. Due to its controversy, it has not become available on the iPhone store but is still available for download on other sites. Although it is still fairly new, the application has already been downloaded by thousands of iPhone users.
Caller ID spoofing has appeared in various news stories over the years, typically related to some type of proposal to ban or outlaw the service. There is a lot of controversy surrounding call spoofing because it has been know in the past to be used by scammers. Certain individuals have used spoofing services for fraudulent and illegal purposes in the past. However, most providers have become quite successful at preventing scammers from exploiting their services and it has not been as large of a problem as it was in the past. As well, spoofing services are used by many individuals for a multitude of purposes. The majority of individuals use spoofing services legitimately.
With spoofing providers continuously producing additional services and features, it doesn’t look like caller ID spoofing is going anywhere any time soon.
