Weird calls

Why am I getting calls that claim to be from my own telephone number and name?

Re: Weird calls

It's scammers trying to get you to answer the phone out of curiosity. They are spoofing your number so that it shows up on your caller id. Some scammer tried that to me yesterday, but I ignored it. http://www.bbb.org/council/news-events/bbb-scam-alerts/2014/06/scam-alert-how-scammers-use-caller-id...
