Caller ID May Not Identify the Actual Number Calling Your Phone

If you have Caller ID and occasionally get calls from people you don't know, the number that shows up on the display may not be the number of the caller as one Eastern Carolina resident is discovering.

According to information technology experts, people all over the world can access Web sites that can change the actual phone number seen on a Caller ID. Authorities say this may have happened to a Winterville resident whose phone number may have been used to harass someone else in another state.
