I originally bought Tasker several (5?) years ago to screen calls by:

1) blocked name/number--hang up

2) not in my contact list

3) family

4) friends (in my contact list but not family or Professionals)

5) Professionals

6) Previously blocked callers Within the last few days I've received calls which ring in as family and the number is apparently the same as the number being called. Have you experienced that and is there anything that Tasker can do about it?

  • Not much can be done... Spoofing Caller IDs is cery common now and most people use apps that can call online... They Mod the registered number so it will look like yours... – Gadget Guru Apr 23 '19 at 23:36

    If you know Exactly Who is doing this, They are abusing the Caller ID Service wich is illegal in my countries... Report them to the relevant Authorities. – Gadget Guru Apr 23 '19 at 23:37

  • Usually spoofing from the same number is not possible because it causes error's on the MSP end, and they block the weird call . – Gadget Guru Apr 25 '19 at 10:27
  • I guess I will try checking the calling number against the phone number, even though that seems really weird. Thanks for the feedback. – Hertfordkc Apr 26 '19 at 11:55
