    I understand that some VIOP (voice over IP) systems may use a phone number starting w8th an area code for a given person called.
    I live in Pittsburgh pa and the area code is 412. I get scam calls with the same area code.

    My question is, Is there a way to see the underlying information from the in coming call? Like is there a setting in developer tools or something?

    Thanks. But what I'm looking for is if there is a way to get the data about any call. I want to write an app.

    @Fred Beebe, they are spoofing existing numbers, so your title fake numbers is incorrect... And that's what they do now a days
