Getting calls from your own number? This could be a scam!

Are you getting calls from your own number? This could be a scam!

Scammers are trying to trick you by sending you texts from your own phone number. Usually, they send a text that looks like it’s coming from your phone number, but the shock of getting a text from yourself might mean that you’ll take the bait — which is what they want. Watch out for these texts, if you get one from your own phone number it’s probably a scam.

Scammers are always looking for new ways to make their criminal schemes more believable, like sending spam texts from a person’s own number. They change the caller ID so it looks like they’re messaging you from your number.

The scam works by sending you a text message after you have paid your bill, inviting you to click a link that promises some sort of free gift. But do not click on the link. Clicking may expose you to scams, malware, or get your phone number added to lists that are then sold to other scammers.

To filter out unwanted text messages, you can do the following:

  1. You can block a number on your iPhone by opening the Phone app, going to Recent, then tapping the red menu on the message you want to be blocked. 
  2. On Android phones, you can prevent phone numbers from contacting you by going to Settings, then Blocked Numbers, and tapping Add New.
Your wireless provider may offer you a service to block messages and calls. Learn about these options on, a site from the wireless industry.

Tips to Prevent a Phone Scam

  1. There are some call-blocking apps that also allow you to block text messages. Go to for a list of Android, BlackBerry, Apple, and Windows apps that can do this.
  2. Searching online for apps is another good way to find what you're looking for. You can check the features, user ratings, and expert reviews to see if it's the right one for you.
