Cloned mobile number

My mobile number is being used (cloned) by someone.  I get people that I don’t know and have never called returning “missed calls” from me.  How do I report it and stop this happening?

Re: Cloned mobile number

Hi Billy62,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community, I am sorry to hear you are getting calls that you believe you haven't called, I have looked into this and this isn't something we are aware of and are advised this isn't possible.

 

Regards

 

Paul.

Re: Cloned mobile number

Could it be a con artist spoofing phone numbers is using your number? I'm forever receiving scam calls with various different spoofed numbers

Re: Cloned mobile number

Thanks for the replies.  Seems to me that someone is spoofing my number.  I have tried to report it like a good citizen, but if virgin aren’t interested or don’t believe it’s possible then there’s nothing more it can do.

Re: Cloned mobile number

they are saying cloning the sim is not possbile.

Cloning numbers is very possible. So do that every day.
Nothing VM can do to stop it.

Re: Cloned mobile number

I had quite a few of those about 5 years back. Stopped abruptly as they move on to another number.
