CALLER ID SPOOFING
Caller Identification, or 'Caller ID', allows you to identify a caller before you answer your telephone. A caller's number and/or name are displayed on your phone (if your phone has this feature).
Caller ID service, however, is susceptible to fraud. Using a practice known as 'caller ID spoofing', callers can deliberately falsify the telephone number and/or name relayed as the Caller ID information to disguise the identity of the calling party. For example, identity thieves who want to collect sensitive information such as your bank account or other financial account numbers, your social security number, your date of birth or your mother's maiden name, sometimes use caller ID spoofing to make it appear as though they are calling from your bank, credit card company, or even a government agency.
A recent, popular method of Caller ID Spoofing can forward an automated robot caller to your phone asking the called party to please press a key to view new services offered by area banks. This is another method of attempting to discover what banks and lenders you use in an attempt to gain personal information. If you have recently received a call from an automated calling service that claims to be from American City Bank, please follow the below link and submit a complaint form from the Federal Communication Commission to assist them in stopping these types of attacks.
