My Mom is freaking out because ever since I started scam baiting from her house a few days
later she got a call from Verizon saying that "Your modem has been tapped! There were some
suspicious connections on your network. You could face charges or even imprisonment." I
don't think it is possible to tap a modem. I didn't hear the call and that's all she was willing to
tell me. She blamed it on me for making the prank calls to the scammers. She told me that she
has been getting calls from different numbers (sometimes out of the country according to her)
all the time and it is "my fault." The only information the scammers had about me is my IP
address. And I have recently noticed that my IP address has changed.
I was wondering:
How could someone get my Mom's phone number from only having my IP address? (I never thought it was possible)
Could the call that my mom received be a scam as well?
