The History of Caller ID Spoofing
Back before Caller ID existed there was obviously no need for Caller ID Spoofing or hiding your phone number when placing calls. At that time when you placed a call the person receiving a call didn't know who was calling. In the 1990's *69 was launched where users could find out what number called them after the call was complete.
Once Caller ID became popular and people could see who was calling before they answered the phones there was an instant demand to prevent this. People could no longer make calls anonymously and the most phone companies could offer their users was the ability to have their name/number show up as private. Obviously this wasn't a perfect solution and the majority of "Private Calls" one would receive were from telemarketers and legitimate people using "Private" as their caller ID would often never get their call picked answered. The demand for Fake Caller ID was there and luckily in the 2000's there were a couple of companies were offering this ground breaking solution to make a call to a user, remain anonymous without giving strangers their personal phone number.
