Imagine how useful it would be for criminals to be able to perfectly impersonate a trusted friend who asks you for money. That’s exactly what spoofing allows them to do. Because of the high trust consumers appear to have in the Caller ID system, they believe without question that any information on their Caller ID is accurate. This makes consumer fraud easier than shooting fish in a barrel.
