    I have been getting tons of weird calls lately. My phone will ring with a call from someone who is in my contacts. I answer and they said I called them. It has happened several times with different people. Our phones are showing we are calling each other when neither of us actually did.

    I have Cricket, others have Verizon, AT&T, and it has even happened on my work phone which is AT&T. It has also happened between other people without my phone being involved.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? Is this a phone issue or is it spam?

    It is spam. Your contact list is spoofed and an auto dialer starts working.

    Would a spoofed call actually show up in the spoofed number's Call Log as an outgoing call, though? I would think that it wouldn't, since the Call Log should only show calls that were physically dialed from that phone.

    No, it wouldn't. If the call shows as having been made from that phone, it was made from that phone. Possibly pocket-dialing?

    I had a situation last year where I was connected to one of my parent's cell phones through one of these calls. They were getting settled into their stateroom on a cruise ship in Brooklyn and I was just outside a subway station near the Battery Park parking garage (midway between Battery Park and the 9/11 museum), my phone rings as a call from one of their phones, I answer and they suddenly hear my voice coming from a phone across the room on a counter.

    It was really bizarre....
