Issue: Calls out register a caller ID number that is not my Skype number! I googled the caller ID, to find out who this number is so I could maybe get in touch with them and get the issue resolved on my own, BUT to my horror it is from some scammers! I tried to call the number but it goes nowhere.
I need to somehow change my caller ID to show my true skype number.
I need help or suggestions from ANYONE! ...before I take this to a lawyer (which i don't want to do because they are expensive)
Hi, Majorescort, and welcome to the Community,
Please review the FAQ article libarary related to Caller ID ...
... to ensure Caller ID is set up and working properly on your account.
The number cited in the subject line of this thread or topic is actually a generic caller ID number applied by fixed line carriers typically when no caller ID number is specified, the number specified is not processed by the networks, or also when any call originating from Skype is transferred to a fixed line or land line network. Unfortunately for all of us, scammers use Skype to place their calls because the outbound call rates are so reasonably priced.
