December 30, 2018, I get a call on my cell phone telling me that my Apple account has been breached and to press the number one on my phone to talk to technical support. I press number one but get disconnected. I look at my cell phone call log and write down the phone number that shows for this last call. I go to my computer and do a phone number reverse lookup and discover that the call shows coming from Apple. I call that number and after wading through their awful automated answering machine I get to talk to a live person. I describe what happened and the technical support lady said the call was a scam. I told her that my phone showed her number in my call log. She said that it was easy for people to show other phone numbers as the call back number. I thanked her and hung up.
Why is it that anyone can alter their call back number? The phone industry is retarded for allowing this to take place. I propose that altering your call back number become a criminal offense because I fail to see any good reason why it should change except for nefarious reasons.
