Weird phone calls

This has been happening to me in the last 2 years.  People are calling me asking why I called them.  Of course I didn't, but they are understandably sad.  Also I am getting calls from people leaving no vm and when I call them back or text them, they tell me the same thing.

 

Does anyone have the same problem with a fix other than changing my phone number that I've had for a lifetime? Btw this destroyed my small business 😞 I no longer able to know when to answer!!!

 

Thank you

Telemarketers and scammers are using a computer program to spoof your number and other numbers. The are also using what is called neighborhood spoofing of the same area code and prefix in hoping the person receiving the call thinks it is a local number.  Links below has info on this.

Sprint, TMobile, and Verizon customers are having the same problem with telemarketers using your or other individual’s numbers. Which other wireless carrier will you go to?  Federal government and wireless phone companies are working on helping identify and block telemarketers. I hav set my phone to only allow contacts to ring through to me, other non coNtact numbers go to voicemail.

No one here is keeping any sort of list that gets added to by someone posting a number.
