Got a call from myself!

I've heard of this before but it happened to me Saturday for the first time. The phone rang, I looked at the HD3 display and it showed my name and my number! I picked up but did not say anything and the call disconnected within a few seconds. I guess the scammers can spoof any number they want, even your own.

Yes, I also had to block me. Thought it might prohibit calling voicemail (your own number), but it doesn't.

I had to block myself on my cellphone to make this go away.
