It looks like a friend is calling you, but it may actually be a phone scam.

Experts say scammers are now "spoofing" phone numbers to make them look familiar. It's like using the same area code or the first few digits of a friend's number.

More than 7 million complaints were filed with the National Do Not Call Registry last year.

If you're not expecting any phone calls, just refrain from answering.
