African American ex-computer hacker designs service to fake caller ID (PR)

Posted: February 27, 2007 in Uncategorized

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Former computer hacker and CEO of LIGATT Security, Gregory D. Evans, has invented and launched a new service to combat call evasion. SPOOFEM.COM is an online program that allows anyone to change the number that appears on another person’s caller ID. It also includes features like voice disguising, call recording, and text messaging from a different number. This program is geared toward collection agencies and law enforcement, but is open to anyone. Want to catch a cheating spouse? Does someone owe you money but won’t accept your calls? Do you value your privacy and don’t want to inadvertently give out your phone number? SPOOFEM.COM is perfect for you.

SPOOFEM.COM is just the latest in a long line of reliable necessary security equipment invented by Evans, an African American former computer hacker. Evans designed SPOOFEM.COM when someone who owed him money and was ignoring his calls.

SPOOFEM.COM callers can change their Caller Identification Number (CID) so that their number will show up differently on another person’s caller ID. Other features include spoofing text messages, which shows a different number or name of the person sending the text. Voice changing does just that, changes your voice. You have the choice of changing your voice to male or female. The conversation can be recorded and then emailed to your personal email address. SPOOFEM.COM lists everything from law enforcement, to collection agencies, to jealous boyfriends and girlfriends as customers of this type of service. “Currently, we have several celebrities and athletes using our service,” Evans confides. It is a perfect fit for anyone who values his or her privacy in this information age. (more…)

This sounds like a really neat idea, but placed in the wrong hands…yikes!

    There’s nothing BUT the wrong hands. If you won’t own who you are, you’ve got NO BUSINESS interrupting other people at home.

    If someone “evades paying you money they owe” either use the appropriate legal services to collect it lawfully, or own that you, personally, blew it, and write the money off to charity.

    Law enforcement doesn’t need this tool – they already have the ability, the power, and the right to accomplish the same results.

    And it may block caller ID, but it doesn’t block the callee reporting you as a harassing call – which bypasses this device and traces it to the actual physical phone line and its assigned number. So maybe we SHOULD encourage the lawless to use it – they’ll be rounded up and stopped quicker.

    Aside from that, it’s pretty much illegal for a civilian to use this device anyway.

    I agree with Bevan. The use of this product is in the very least RUDE if not morally questionable.

  3. DarkStar says:

    Maryland is going after this and other such services, believing that it is illegal. People have used it in Maryland for stalking purposes and phishing.

  4. Blackman says:

    This product is one that should be illegal and taken off the market. Anything used to disguise and misrepresent yourself or company is unethical.

    Well, if its legal I don’t see why a black man shouldn’t be able to sell it rather than Radioshack or Microsoft.
