The city of Roswell says someone is calling people appearing to be coming from a city government phone number asking about voting.
Roswell said on Facebook on Wednesday that 770-641-3700 is not in use by the city. Spoofers use technology to make it look like they are calling from that number when they are actually not.
Good news: The city added that spammers do not have access to Roswell’s phone system.
Bad news: “After working with our telephone communications provider, the city’s Information Technology division determined that nothing can be done to address the situation on our end, unfortunately,” according to the post.
The city and Roswell police asked that anyone who notices an incoming call from the number, 770-641-3700, should not answer the call and should report it to the Federal Communications Commission, https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/spoofing-and-caller-id.
