How can a 7 digit number call my mobile

I have been getting a load of cold calls everyday on mt mobile & landline and I'm now at the point that i have unplugged the landline and put my mobile on silent. Tonight i had a missed call from a 7 digit number how is this even possible ?

Re: How can a 7 digit number call my mobile

Any number or word can call your mobile. With the right gear it's easy to spoof a caller ID so that it contains any numbers (or letters) that the caller wants.

This is why it's not enough to rely on the phone's notification of who is calling you. Before you start handing over personal information, always ensure that the caller is genuinely who they say they are (or who the number says they are).

Thanks for that information. That was something i was unaware of. I did a google search and found a webpage which had 605 searches listed for the number and 26 complaints about calls from the number. .
