Fri, 23 Feb 2018 06:05:08 EST

City of Alpena officials say various city phone numbers are appearing on citizens caller ID’s that are actually being "spoofed".

If answered, most times it is a “robo-call” that may ask for various items of personal data, such as social security numbers, or credit card numbers.

Officials say the city does not use pre-recorded messages or prompts to place phone calls and do not ask for personal information.

If unanswered and show up as a missed call, when a citizen calls back they will find that no one from the City called them.

This is known as Caller ID “spoofing” which is not something the City can control.

Additionally, you should never any give personal information to unsolicited callers
