Number called and when call back stated it was disconnected

I received a call from 303-294-5202 yesterday and when I called it back, it stated that the number had been disconnected or was no longer in service. I tried again and the same response. Does anyone have any clue if this is a new tactic by collection agencies?

I don't know but it's pretty hard to call back a number that's disconnected. Sounds pretty stupid to me, was it just number they punched in to get past a security screen or blocked number?

It happens with me usually. I pick up 40 - 50 calls in my job each day. I can see the number in the caller ID and know whether they are blocked. Sometimes we need to call back when requested. I read one number before picking it up and the lady also gave me her number to call back. Suddenly, the line got disconnected in the middle of the conversation. I tried to reach the number and it appeared disconnected. I tried for several times later but never got through.

It is easy to "spoof" caller id numbers (i.e., make any number appear in the caller id that you want to appear). Also, some businesses have specific inbound and outbound lines - someone calling from the business would have the outbound number appear in caller id, but if you tried to call it back, it would not work - because it is specifically set up to only handle outbound calls. Companies do this to handle and route heavy call volumes.

Nothing that matters comes easy; nothing that comes easy ever really matters.

They are spoofing the number. Google "Spoofing" . There is a site out there that will disguise your number and your voice.
