Got a call from random numbers 5-6 times this year. They call me and say that they received a missed call from this number. After I tell them that I didn’t call them, they say ok, then it must be a wrong number or whatever and we part ways.
Since they don’t ask for my name or any personal information(80% of the time. Might ask who is this for curiosity purposes if they genuinely received a call from my number), I don’t see it being a phishing call for information collection. What other reason could be there that I might be receiving these calls?
I believe there are services that make your number appear on their caller ID and someone might be using such a service and call random people with my number. But can there be anything else to this?
