Had this last night, pressed 9 to talk to them and asked for their information so I could report them. The guy on the phone then said something I can't print here. Really rude.
Yes, pretty often actually. Not sure how they do that.

Sounds like they are working really hard at this. Would they change the i.d. to every place they call or are other scam calls getting your number? I would report this to AT&T, my provider.
That would be my first clue ... and I would be sure to not engage in any manner. I have not had that happen ... yet.
The games are being upped....? Good! So is my awareness too. Thank you
OMG NO! Very weird!
I got one recently and the caller ID showed up as a family member.
It is a trivial exercise for someone, who knows what they are doing, to spoof your own phone number on your caller id. I know a number of people who have had this issue.
no, that's never happemed to me....
Never heard of that one, so it's NEWS to me. What were they trying to sell or get from you ? Let us know so we can warn others.
If it's the next coming SCAM ; I'd like to get the word out !

Not yet but I'm sure it will happen shortly.
No, I haven't and don't want to
My own number?
I'll do what everyone else seems to do....hit decline.
No I have not...
I hope not..... It is like a kitten sees its face on the mirror and gets excited.
That happens on my home phone often, and never answer.
Good morning Vern. Nothing surprises me when it comes to to scammers.
No, that's a new one on me!
One time that I recall --- kinda weird.
I cannot say that I have seen this happen yet.
Vern Eaton - this is possible. They can play with any 'caller id'!
I never had it or even heard about it. That is just wrong...
Now that would be scary. I have never heard of that.
I have not but have heard about this one. I would not answer it.
No, that's a new one for me.
No, not yet.
no - that is creepy
I haven't had this happen yet. That is strange.
Yes I have, and they are masking many of the calls with local numbers these days in an effort to get us to answer them.
Unforutnate that do not call lists are only effective at harming legitimate businesses.
Yes, how can they do that? Also, received an email from myself, but my mail wasn't hacked and there was no record of it in my "sent" file. They are definitely getting trickier.
I haven't seen that. Pretty clever. You glance at the call and the number seems familiar, so you answer -- and they've got you!
Had this happen about a month ago.
Now that IS special. Better buy a lotto ticket!
no fortunately they have not gotten my number yet
Now that's a new one!
Never have had that happen. I would not take a call from myself.
This is a new one on me... thankfully I haven't see it and won't (hopefully).
Not yet - though see scammers on e-mail Vern Eaton.
Yes, my wife and I both get these calls on our r espective phones...I get them on both my land line and cell
nope. not yet
