#Google allows caller ID #spoofing apps to be distributed in #Play Store

Caller ID spoofing enables someone to make it look like they are calling from a different phone number than their own. A smart phone app like this was allegedly used by the alleged “swatter” that resulted in the death of an innocent young father in Wichita, Kansas.

The company that creates this app – Caller ID Faker – Android Apps on Google Play – says it is based in North Carolina.

In the U.S. it is legal to spoof caller ID.
