Getting calls saying I just called them

Anyone else on MTS cell getting intermittent calls saying they just got a call from your number? I got one today, and one not too long ago, saying this. The one today only hit redial!

Either the telephone network is going to crap with all these VoIP providers, spammers, etc. Or the telco telephone switches are acting weird.

Authorized Service Provider (Contractor) for MTS Allstream. Any views expressed are my own.

I had one a few weeks ago from a woman that was sure I had called her. I'm pretty spammers are using fake numbers - I'm starting to get a lot of fake Air Miles calls that show up on my caller id as matching the first 3 digits of my phone number.

My cell number was originally issued by Rogers and I ported it to MTS.

now that you mention it, I have noticed at work that I have been getting spam calls starting with the first 3 digits and I answer thinking its an internal call.

As soon as I hear you have won I hang up so I have no idea who is sending it.

Same here, I am getting calls from 204-793-xxxx which are telemarketers, I have had a couple people call me asking why I called them as well.
