IT&E has received reports of suspicious calls in the CNMI from local phone numbers.
In response, IT&E has issued the following statement:
IT&E has received reports of suspicious calls from local phone numbers. IT&E has identified these calls as spoof calls, where a third party falsifies the information transmitted to a caller ID display to disguise their identity so that it appears as if the call is coming from a local number.
IT&E’s system remains secure and no evidence of a breach or hacking has been detected.
This is the work of an unknown third party. Subscribers are encouraged to remain vigilant when answering calls from unsaved numbers and to refrain from giving personal information over the phone without verifying if the caller is legitimate.
To report suspicious activity, subscribers can call the IT&E Customer Care Center at 682-4483.
