Spam call from my own number

Hi. I just received a spam call on my iPhone, ostensibly from myself. I didn't answer the call and can't block the number or I'd be blocking my own cellphone number. Any ideas on how to deal with this, other than not answering? Oh, and no voicemail message either... Also, not sure if this is the right board to ask this question. If not, please suggest the correct board. Thank you.

Re: Spam call from my own number

Not answering is your best defense but since it is not possible to actually receive a call from your own number, go ahead and block it. It won’t stop those calls, the scammers will just use a different number but no harm in blocking your own number.
