AnswerNet Targeted in Caller ID Spoofing Scam

Standard

Dear Friends of AnswerNet,

AnswerNet has unfortunately been targeted in a caller id “spoofing” scam. Caller ID spoofing is the ability to change the telephone number that appears on a caller ID display when they receive a phone call. Many scam artists deliberately falsify their telephone number to disguise the true identity of the calling party in an effort to present fraudulent offers of a variety of goods or services.

AnswerNet is a full service call center provider that produces telemarketing campaigns on behalf of our clients. We do not engage in direct-to-consumer calling programs for AnswerNet itself. AnswerNet follows strict FCC guidelines, and scrubs all calling lists against the National Do Not Call Registry (DNC). Additionally, our model is business-to-business only.

AnswerNet does want to assure consumers that we are doing our best to correct this situation. Please continue to contact the FCC when called by these individuals.

Should you wish to contact our corporate office about this matter, please call 800-411-5777 and you will be directed to the Communications department.
