I have been plagued the last month or so, I have been receiving numerous calls listing me as the caller ID calling myself. I have reported this to COX during a live chat and a ticket (whatever that means) is supposedly opened. I then was asked to report all subsequent instances. I tried using live chat but it is ridiculously hard and time consuming to do so. They send a link so you can fill out a form, but the link doesn't always open. COX should have a nice email form where you could address issues sent in, or just ignore them as usual. Unfortunately I am in sort of a cellular dead zone so I need a land line so I am stuck with COX for now.
Has anyone else received these calls with your number Spoofed? Have you had luck contacting COX? I am fed up!!!!!!
I see robo calls to my ATT cell phone and my century link copper line that show 702-363-xxxx which is my prefix. The a-holes are spoofing numbers to get us to answer the calls. I dunno how cox can stop that. I think sometimes (not certain now) that the calls even have a name on the caller ID. I had a woman call me a few days ago--woke me up - to ask why I called her 363 ph number. Seems like a lot the calls are selling back braces.
I get a ton of those calls that spoof the first 6 digits to make it look like a local caller. It’s not just a Cox problem; I get them on my cell all the time. I must have about 500 numbers blocked with the same area code and exchange. As for that medical brace scam, I’ve received about 10 calls from a few different numbers even here in CT.
UPDATE: Good news: HHS has busted the scammers.
