Beware of Spoofing Calls Using Falmouth Hospital ID
Cape Cod Healthcare has had several reports from local residents this week about a telephone call showing on their caller ID as “Falmouth Hospital,” but the person answering claims to be selling home improvement products.
Known as “ID spoofing,” the practice allows the caller to disguise their actual identity and telephone number using another person’s or organization’s name.
Please be advised that these calls did not originate from Falmouth Hospital, and Cape Cod Healthcare does not endorse any business associated with this or any ID spoofing.
