Annoying Autocall


I have a problem with my phone calling people by itself and was wondering if anyone else was having this problem. The numbers it calls are not on my contact list and often the people will phone back asking who I am because "I called them". Its not a pocket dial, my phone is an lg optimus black with a lockscreen and its in my pocket when it happens so there is no way I could have messed with it. The outgoing calls do not appear in my call log. What is going on? Any ideas?

What's happening is that someone is spoofing your number and using that to cover their identity on caller ID screens There's nothing Koodo can do about this. The only solution is to change your number.

To further add to what Chad said, yes this is illegal but unfortunately it's very hard to track down the person doing the spoofing.
