Caller ID Spoofing

Posted on: August 30th, 2017 No Comments

 

The City of Piqua has been informed that the telephone number for our Health Department has been spoofed. Caller ID Spoofing occurs when the number showing up on your caller ID display is not the true identity of that number. The caller will proceed to give the person receiving the call a false sense of security and begin asking for personal information.

As a reminder, most organizations will not ask for personal information over the telephone. When answering unknown telephone numbers do not give out your social security number, account numbers, passwords, or any other identifying information unless you initiated the call to a credible source.
