I've noticed a change of tactic. On caller ID these calls used to supposedly come from local cities like Carson CA or Malibu CA. Now they appear to originate from a person's name like Lucy Smith or Paul Gomez. Recognizing that a city name is too impersonal they're hoping on the long shot that the spoofed name might be the same as someone I actually know and I'll answer it.

I checked my cell phone the other day where I have it set to silent unless the calling number is in my address book. Turns out I had received a call from someone with my name but it didn't ring because the number was wrong.

My cell is on ATT, and I never get names in Caller ID. Never have. Not even from landlines. I just get numbers, and I assumed that's how it is. Only names I get are in my contact list.
