New Caller I.D. spoofing site opens

Thursday, 28 October 2004, 10:25 AM EST

Web-based caller I.D. spoofing is back, and this time it's available to everyone.

A new website offer subscribers a simple Web interface to a caller I.D. spoofing system that lets them appear to be calling from any number they choose.

Called "Camophone," the service functions much like the Star38.com site that struggled with an abortive launch last month: a user types in their phone number, the number they wish to call, and the number they'd like to wear as a disguise. The system instantly dials back and patches the call through with the properly-forged caller I.D.
