Sometimes I get Robo call on I D and the Fraudulent ID is a mystery. I block it but still curious why and who.


This is new today POLITICAL just showed on caller ID this moment. Hurrah.

That sounds like your phone company is doing some screening for their customers and replacing the CallerID Name with a warning for you if they know that the calling number is a scammer.

Phone companies have been able to identify when CallerID is being spoofed for quite a while. However they weren't passing that on or blocking it in most cases. Recent regulations passed that require them do so, not sure when all are supposed to have it implemented. Looks like your company has started.

The different carriers use different terms when “caller id’ing” spam calls. Fraudulent is a new one to me.

T-Mobile calls it "Likely Spam", whatever they call it - it works.
