get call
random guy
"hey who is this?"
"um.... This is user. Who's this?"
"did you call me? "
"no, I haven't made any outgoing calls in the last month like at all"
"thats super weird, I just missed 2 calls from this number. Just hit redial so I know it's not a mistake. you sure you haven't called anyone?"
"yeah"
"thats so weird... Okay, have a nice night. Sorry to bother you"

I made a PayPal payment on public WiFi and that's linked to my number but that's the only days insecure thing that's happened to my phone recently. Should I be spooked? Are the identity thrives out to get me?

It was in my area code and I don't have many contacts so I thought it could be a work buddy calling in to ask me if I could cover a shift or something.

Spam callers have been spoofing calls with other people's numbers. Did the caller's number start with the same 6 digits as yours?

I don't understand. Why do they need a recording to you saying "yes"? Why can't they just say it themselves?

Some security systems use voice recognition. Some banks were ringing you up and saying "Did you just ask try to buy a $400 thing? Please say 'Yes' to authorise, or 'No' to refuse this purchase"

"hey who is this?"
"um.... This is user. Who's this?"

correct answer when some rando calls and asks "who is this?" is: "who is ASKING?" or alternatively "who the fuck are YOU?"

The phone permission is also used to get access to the IMEI, often used to identify devices.

They're constantly calling the line phone, i think it's just call centers double checking their info but my mum answers anyways.
Call centers won't call asking to do polls anymore though since i scared them away every time they tried to make my mom lose time doing them.
