There are a lot of things that you can do when trying to pretend to be someone else. It is all about creating a persona, and it is also about avoiding miscommunications. If you are looking to get into a relationship, then you can create a fake phone number, and pretend to be somebody who is not quite your real self.
Developing a persona
It’s not all that difficult to come up with a good ol’ fashioned persona, but figuring out who you are and what you are doing is a whole other ball game. With that in mind, why not have a bit of fun? A game of cat and mouse is the name of the game and a little sleuthing will have you up and running in no time. Thankfully, you aren’t the only one in the game. So, enlist the aid of a seasoned pro and see what you can find out! The results may be more than you bargained for but the reward is well worth the effort.
Protecting your phone number from being spoofed
Phone number spoofing is a dangerous practice. It is used to mask the real source of an incoming call or text. If you receive a call from an unknown number, you should avoid answering it and leave the message.
Some people use phone number spoofing to obtain personal information. Others use it to commit identity theft. They may request you to give them credit card numbers and other sensitive information. This is a serious issue because the information they gather can be sold to the highest bidder.
If you have a phone service provider, you can contact them to see if they offer protection against phone spoofing. Most providers do. You can also file a complaint with the FCC.
Another way to protect your phone number from spoofing is to change your number. The majority of mobile telecom providers will provide you with a new number. Doing this can prevent spam calls and texts from coming to your old number.
