Call from 0000000000 - This is VERY Strange

Call from 0000000000 - This is VERY Strange

This Morning I received a call on my iPhone 4. The caller id number was listed was 0000000000. When I answered there was a click sound ( the same sound the iPhone's  camera shutter simulation makes).  I hung up and tried calling the number back , but it was non-working number.  I know how strange this sounds, but I was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this.  Could this be the work of a rouge App?

Re: Call from 0000000000 - This is VERY Strange

Spoofed Caller IDs are practically equivalent to private #'s. I never answer any calls from "Unknown/Blocked/Spoofed" IDs, as they are 99% likely to be collection or phishing calls. Even just answering a call signifies to the caller that the line is active and a person on the other end can & will pick up the phone. This, in turn, allows them to continue their assault on that line, and/or share your # with other solicitors...

I have received calls like this before and it is usally the work of an auto dialer and from scammers who spoof telephone numbers.  If it persists, change your cell phone number.

Re: Call from 0000000000 - This is VERY Strange

I've been getting calls from 00000000 as well as 478965458, 817000894, 11478965458, the list goes on and on. All calling me about getting a degree. The last two calls today from "Degree Services", I tell the rep to take me off their list and their reply was "No. We'll keep calling." and hangs up! This all started about a month ago. I didn't fill out any surveys, etc. I don't know how these clowns got my number but I want it to stop. Already on the Do Not Call List. How is this happening?

probably just a telemarker

i get phone calls and then hear the click click you mentions and it turns out to be a telemarketer

apparently they cant see the phone number theyre dialing is on the no call list till its dialed and someone answers 

thats what i think anyway

All, while this was written for U-verse Voice customers, Caller ID Spoofing includes information that may help wireless customers protect themselves from phone scams, as well. Hope this helps.
