No doubt, once or twice, you’ve probably encountered a very juicy offer or promo on the internet or in a magazine subscription that you so badly want to avail of, but can’t because it’s area-restricted – meaning, if you live out of town or out of state, you do not qualify for the promo or deal.

- On weekdays and during office hours, it makes a better, more professional impression on clients when they know the business owner or an employee is calling them from the office. On occasions a work day is held outside the office, or even if it’s your day off, caller ID spoofing allows a business call to appear to still be coming from the office. There won’t be a need to reveal your cellphone or home number.
- Even Google employs caller ID spoofing. Their service, Google Voice, allows users to place outgoing calls on their landline or cellphone but only have their Google Voice number appear on the recipient’s caller ID.
- If you still remember Gizmo5, that service would use the user’s Gizmo SIP number for the caller ID.
- Prior to the 15th of August back in 2011, The New York Times would actually hide behind the number 111-111-1111 for all of its outgoing calls. They did this to keep their reporters’ extensions from appearing in call logs, so as not to make them liable to reveal contacted anonymous sources.

Telemarketing and similar jobs are tough. These days, one of the biggest obstacles to getting your job done is just getting people to answer their phones. If you ask around, most people will tell you they will never pick up a call with a different area code — which is often times the case when it’s actually coming from a telemarketer.
If we can just get these individuals to pick up the call, then nearly half the job is done, since you can bank on the fact that many people feel obligated to be polite, somehow hear you out and not immediately hang up.
