Open Letter to Telcos and Australian Government

Why do you allow Phone Number Spoofing


This is the email I sent Australian Department of Communications, Cyber Security and the Arts.

" I am a podcaster and am asking why phone number spooOng is permitted in Australia?

My intention is to publicise the answers by your department and the telcos, who I am also asking the same question.

This came about as I have received several calls lately asking for investment money and after I have ended the call I call the incoming number which is disconnected or not the person who called me!

Thanks for your time, looking forward to your reply! "

Straight forward and to the point.
