If you get a call from a number that looks like a friend be careful.
It might be a phone scam.
Experts say schemers are increasingly spoofing phone numbers to make them look familiar to consumers on the other end.
Some numbers may even use your area code or the first six digits of a friend's number.
Half of all phone schemes today use this tactic of digit spoofing.
If you get called from a number that seems off despite looking familiar either don't pick up or tell the person you'll call back.
