Call came to my home phone from my home phone?

Call came to my home phone from my home phone?

How can this happen? Had my caller ID displayed with my home number...was a company about credit cards and lowering interest. I have had this happen before, but this time someone told me how to get off their list.....press 9. However, I am NOT happy this happened in the first place.

Caller ID spoofing is running rampant by the bad guys trying to sell you stuff.  It's common and can't be controlled.

Spoofing is indeed becoming a more common issue. I've had the same situation on my home phone. Any phone provider should be able to prevent a call (or rather, fail a call) if an inbound call to your number is coming from your number. Don't answer those calls - but let your provider know you expect those to be blocked.

Yes, same thing happened to my father the other day. Very strange.

I noticed that I called myself also. When I checked the caller ID log, I found that over the past 3 weeks I have called myself 16 times from different telephone numbers.  Very upsetting to think that someone that I may know has been harassed by "me".
