Telemarketer's! How do they get a person's cell phone number? I get at least four or five a day. And the numbers on the caller ID, shows them as local number's! Just crazy.

Their computer assisted auto dialers or robo calls. Someone programs your area code and three number prefix then run all of the last four numbers from 0001 to 9999. They attempt to fool you by spoofing local numbers in the hope that you may think it's someone you know and pick up. Scam artists and political groups use this tactic all the time.

If you have an I phone you can stop most of these calls.

I have the ATT app and it works well at blocking the spammers.  But you get a notification that a suspected spammer called.
I took a new job where I’ll get customer calls from everywhere so I also got a new number.  So far so good.....

They were able to manipulate the caller Id readout at least 15 years ago.

We kept getting calls on our land line from the local appliance shop that were scammers  from India.
I finally called the appliance shop and told 5hem what was going on. He called Verizon, then even checked back with me later. He got it stopped.

As Txaz said,, I also have att. My cell is really good like that. Once in a great while I get a call from an unknown that rings, and even then it gives the option of sending it to voice mail.

Oddly enough,,,
I got a text alert. This got me looking through my cell.

I got two calls from YUKON, Canada,

And a text from Northwest Territories, Canada.

I didnt answer either call. My phone caught it for voice mail,, but they were in my missed calls file. I looked the number up,, it showed non existent.

The text wanted me to open a attachment to see it. I did NOT.

All 3  in about a 1 hour period.

My cell has been very quiet for a long time.
Then this all a sudden. ? 

Must be the latest for scammers. The Yukon and Northwest territories have such low populations,, its unlikely that's the actual location of these new calls and text.

I got an automated call from a jail wanting to know if I wanted to talk to a prisoner.
I gave them Ship’s number.
